Richard has recorded 6 minutes of footage with London based Sh*t Theatre in homage to the film’s 30th Anniversary.
“In 2013 I launched The Redux Project – my attempt to disrupt the cinema industry by making counterfeit sections of popular films. The project has so far taken me to London, Glasgow, Berlin, Bangkok, Sydney, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, BBC4 and many more, and, unlike most derivative works, my fakes have often received better reviews than the originals..” Richard Dedomenici
