Man at I.C.A. Evo at OneDotZero

A 'Day of the Jackal' June day on The Mall. Heat, flags, steel crowd-control barriers and an impressive Police presence ... The adoring masses are either here for the Queen's birthday 'Trooping The Colour' ceremony or the world première of the short film Evo at the I.C.A. Cinema.

Yet Cinema 1 is only half-full, (mostly other filmmakers I suspect.) Evo is three quarters through a programme of varied shorts. After the show, the director takes a celebratory beer in the I.C.A. bar where all eyes are on the widescreen monitor installed in the corner. It's not art, but it is contemporary; the England v Paraguay game kicks-off in Frankfurt.

So that was the première screeninig of Evo. Thanks go to Joel Karmath, Darryl Clifton, Giada et al for putting the OneDotZero Festival together, and in particular for choosing to screen the film. Find out more about the OneDotZero Festival at
