Still from Putin’s Happy by Jeremy Deller

Jeremy Deller recently premiered his new film, ‘Putin’s Happy’, which was shot in and around Parliament Square, London, during the first half of 2019. I was on camera duty for this ride into the dark heart of Brexit, encountering conspiracy theorists, rampant anti-semites, yellow-vest protesters, and people who think it’s come to something when you can’t hear your own language being spoken on your own high street. It’s a depressing watch, and thankfully not online, but is currently being shown at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst und Medien in Graz, Austria, as part of the steirischerherbst’19 festival. UK showings will be announced soon.
