Description

In April, SNFCC Sessions present the legendary Don Letts, DJ, musician and filmmaker. A multifaceted artist who has been active from the late 1970s through the 80s and 90s well into the millennium; nowadays he produces the weekly show Culture Clash Radio on BBC Radio 6. As a DJ, he single-handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae. It was back in 1977, whilst a DJ at the The Roxy, the legendary punk club, that Don adopted the punk D.I.Y. ethic and began to make his first film, The Punk Rock Movie, a unique documentary on the U.K. punk scene.

This led to a period directing over 300 music videos for an eclectic mix of diverse artists ranging from Public Image Ltd to Bob Marley; he was the main videographer of The Clash, even appearing on the iconic cover of their album Black Market Clash. He then moved into documentary work, covering the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, The Jam, Sun Ra, George Clinton, and most recently Paul McCartney. His films have been screened at The Kitchen NYC, Institute of Contemporary Art, and BFI Southbank in London. He has been featured at Brooklyn’s BAM festival and Milan Film Festival.
