Storyline

A documentary about a film that never was, Rough Cut by London-based artist Jamie Shovlin explores the making of a 1970s exploitation film, Hiker Meat; an imaginary concept by fictitious Italian director Jesus Rinzoli. This film-within-a-film operates as both affectionate homage to and academic deconstruction of the exploitation genre, creating a Frankenstein-esque cut-and-paste of the era's concerns and fascinations, emphasising the archetypes and mythologies of this often critically maligned period of filmmaking. Described by director Jamie Shovlin as a "metamentary", stripping back the making, unmaking and remaking of both the film and the idea, as a kind of ode to the power of imagination. Written by Cornerhouse Artist Film
