Dean Chalkley unveiled his successful landmark photographic exhibition almost two years ago ‘The New Faces’ exhibited at The Book Club, a study of eight young ‘Mods’, bound together by their shared passion for smart dressing, rare soul music, socialising and dancing. Dean returns to The Book Club, this time with The New Faces: A Short Film. The film forms a hypnotic visual experience as well as being an incisive and engaging contemporary document. It’s also a pin point in a perennial subculture that began in the 1960’s and has evolved and lives on in this modern age.
Not only will guests be among the first people to view Dean’s new short film, they will be enticed into dancing the night away to a sought-after selection of rare soul, rhythm & blues, ska, Latin and boogaloo! DJs on the night will include Jamie Parr and Tomas McGrath (featured in The New Faces: A Short Film) as well as Dean Chalkley and Si Cheeba (Black Cat).
The book club host many events on a regular basis in the form of cultural showcases, workshops and talks, to find out more about up-coming events at the venue please visit http://www.weartbc.com/
