Films by James Nares and Beth B and Scott B


With James Nares in person

James Nares, a painter and a member of the punk band the Contortions, employed a number of different styles when he turned to filmmaking. In Waiting for the Wind (1982, 8 mins.), which Amy Taubin has called a “technical tour-de-force, ” Nares exhibits a pre-occupation with violent movement, offering up his own body as the focal point. In The Black Box (1979, 21 mins.) Beth B and Scott B address the issue of torture, while in No Japs at My Funeral (1980, 60 mins.), Nares gives us the first person narrative of a real-life IRA operative.
