We are proud to announce that we have joined forces with byNWR.com – 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.”
