The Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille (2016)

The Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille (2016)

Sat 15 Sept, 3:30pm |  Admission free, no booking required

Join us to mark the opening of Patrick Hough’s exhibition with a special screening of the 2016 documentary The Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille. In 1983, a group of determined film buffs - inspired by a cryptic clue in DeMille's posthumously published autobiography - located the remains of the set of DeMille’s 1923 epic The Ten Commandments. This film set and its recovery has inspired much of Hough’s work, which questions ideas of originality and authenticity.

The Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille is an irresistible detective story, told with a sense of wonder and humour. Featuring interviews and anecdotes from people involved in the making of the movie, this documentary also functions as an intimate portrait and posthumous tribute to DeMille himself.
