Runtime: 170 mins

Genre: Drama

Doors: 18:30. Screening: 19:00

We invited exhibiting artist R.I.P. Germain to guest curate a season of films that have influenced his creative practice. To kick off the season, R.I.P. Germain selects one of the most influential gangster epics of all time, Brian De Palma’s 1983 classic Scarface. The film tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana, who arrives penniless in Miami during the Mariel boatlift and becomes a powerful drug lord. Lead actor Al Pacino gives an unforgettable performance as one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on screen, alongside the dazzling Michelle Pfeiffer in what is widely regarded as her breakthrough role.

R.I.P. Germain's immersive exhibition "After GOD, Dudus Comes Next!” (2024) is on display at FACT from Friday 5 July to Sunday 13 October 20204.

“You will find versions of my practice in these three films. In one way or another they always manage to find a way of being a point of reference in the art that I make. That’s the type of influence they’ve had on me, and many others like myself, and that’s also the point.”
