Cinema News: Anarchy in the UK - Fabrizio Federico interview


The documentary Anarchy In The UK is the missing link that pulls all of the excitement, magic and controversies from the past few years of the UK's Indie cinema scene together for viewers to walk away inspired. Maverick filmmaker Fabrizio Federico traveled all across the UK to compile the statements of todays outspoken filmmakers, organizations and fans.


Federico created a Ziggy Stardust alter-ego called Jett Hollywood who promised to create two films and then commit cinema suicide. This is his second film from the school of scumbag college.

''Making the movie was a real challenge because there arent many filmmakers left out there who arent afraid to tell it like it is. Everyone seems to be media trained these days and doesn't want to offend anyone. I was just looking for the truth, and the message I got from everyone is basically become a god onto yourself and find your king superstar swagger.''

The film focuses on the years 2010 to 2016 as a new generation got brutally tangled up in the governments mess of the UK Film Council Cuts & the London tuition fee riots. Refusing to lie down these filmmakers & cult cinema groups decided to sabotage and eradicate cinemas morals. Taking to the streets to shoot guerrilla-style movies and creating a generation gap in the film industry.

With an irreverent sneer in his eyes and smile of someone who just ate the royal canary. The blood of a pirate and a poet. Federico cuts a ball of energy that is both disarming and barbed, you could easily get cut. But if he sense's truth in you, its a celebration. ''We dont need the government to make films, if anything they've done us all a favor, we dont need their censorship dogmas, all we wanna do is have a good time making our films, showing them to mad crowds and giving the industry the finger in the process. Simple really and we're winning.''

 
The films linchpin theme is lawlessness, and its point runs deep throughout the documentary, the whole ''misrule cinema'' aspect is to go out and embrace the punk attitude of saying fuck it im gonna go for it at all costs while Im still alive.
''Without a doubt meeting all these like minded people made me feel like this wasnt just some  lone cinema suicide mission, we're all in this together, to create beautiful insane films that are different but true to our vision, without having to follow any rules, I'd found my sweet spot. If the boring people disapprove then fuck them, I mean that because these movies arent for you. ''
