Drawn from Yoko Ono’s score, FILM NO. 5/”RAPE” (or CHASE) from 1968, Rape was made in London in 1969, and directed by Yoko Ono and John Lennon. Shot mainly in close-up with a hand-held camera, the film generates some of the fear provoked by the press that surrounded Ono and Lennon during the height of their fame.

Screening of Rape followed by a panel discussion with Dr Tanya Horeck, Reader in Film, Media and Culture, ARU and Dr Prerona Prasad, Exhibitions and Programming Manager, Heong Gallery, moderated by Chris Owen, Honorary Visiting Senior Fellow, ARU. Discussion followed by Q&A.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
