As part of the Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption exhibition we collaborated with Onedotzero to bring together a compilation of moving image work including animations and archive material, which explore politics through comic-style work.In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation.
