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. For his final film, R.I.P. Germain has chosen acclaimed music video director Hype Williams’ only feature film to date, 1998’s influential crime drama Belly. The film stars New York hip-hop legends NAS and DMX in their debut roles, alongside T-Boz of TLC and Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man. The story revolves around crime lords Tommy (DMX) and Sincere (NAS), who lead a group of criminals encountering difficulties while expanding their drug-dealing business. Throughout the film, the pair begin to realise that their lives are headed towards a dead end and start to consider taking different paths.

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.”
