Q&A with JBFC artist-in-residence Haley Anderson, moderated by JBFC Remix curator Saidah Russell


Control is an incisive profile of Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division, starring Sam Riley (Maleficent) and Samantha Morton (Morvern Callar) as Ian and Deborah Curtis, respectively. The film focuses on their marriage, the formation and career of Joy Division, and Ian’s complicated life.

After the screening, hear from Creative Culture Remix Artist-in-Residence Haley Anderson! Haley is currently writing the script for her project Pure Hell, which is about the first Black punk band.

Haley will discuss her project and influences with JBFC Remix Series Curator, Saidah Russell.
