John Greyson's Zero Patience (1993) is a satirical musical that looks at the media blame game surrounding AIDS during the 90s.
Fortunately for people that live down south, it's showing this Saturday at the Rio Cinema in Dalston. This isn't a film you can see on DVD, so it's a very special opportunity to see something that's not usually on in your local multiplex. There is so much buzz about this, it's even been
Time Out's Critics' Choice this week. And they know their good shit down at
Here is the official-style
Targeting modern blame culture and media
sensationalism, the film's activist zeal is paired with a playfully postmodern
plot; famed Victorian Sir Richard Francis Burton (John Robinson), now an
immortal taxidermist at a Toronto museum, seeks to uncover the story behind
'Patient Zero', the first suspected carrier of AIDS to North America, before
meeting his ghost (Normand Fauteux) and realising there is more to the received
story of the disease than the actions of one man..
So, the details are these:
John Greyson's Zero Patience is presented to you by amazing film people Little Joe.
The showing is at 11.30pm at the Rio Cinema, 103-107 Kingsland High Street, E8 2PB
