Introducing an Exclusive Cinematic Experience…

Black Deer ByNWR

We are proud to announce that we have joined forces with – which was released to the public by Nicolas Winding Refn, the director responsible for masterpieces such as Bronson, Drive, and The Neon Demon, to bring a unique cinematic experience to Eridge Park this summer: byNWR Expressway.

In this exclusive UK festival partnership, byNWR specially-curated a trilogy of hidden gems to be shown for the first time in a new form. Forty Acre Feud, Wild Guitar and Cottonpickin’ Chickenpickers all hark back to a time of the American drive-in cinema at its peak, and have been beautifully and meticulously restored to serve as a visual reimagining of early Americana alongside the rest of our Americana world. This experience is part of a mesmeric and rare EXPRESSWAY series which will begin in February at Milan’s Fondazion Prada before returning to London’s Royal Academy of Arts in May ahead of the series’ greenfield festival debut at Black Deer Festival in June.

Here’s a few words from the man himself…

“For me, Black Deer represents the ultimate spirit of Americana and everything we love about it. It is the perfect place for byNWR’s own obsession with all things American.”

Nicolas Winding Refn was launched as a revolutionary online site which was first presented in 2018, as stated by Winding Refn, “What we’ve created is not a film, TV, fashion, photography, lifestyle or political site. It’s an installation, an online museum inclusive of everything. There’s a movie presented each month, but that film is merely the jumping off point. It’s the seed to inspire creativity, provoke a state of mind. The result isn’t easy to explain in a soundbite, you have to experience it. byNWR comes with a mystery attached.”

byNWR’s partnership with Black Deer Festival promises an unrivalled experience and comes from an extraordinary alignment of the festival’s pioneering spirit of independence, byNWR’s commitment to boundary-pushing film, and their shared passion for all things Americana and Country.

We’ll be bringing you even more details on this exclusive partnership in the coming weeks and months. But it promises to be a cinematic experience you won’t want to miss.

See you in the deer park…
