Benn Northover Stops By For a Chat About Anthology Film Archives' Upcoming Gala
Benn Northover stopped by the PAPER offices yesterday to chat about his upcoming projects, including AIDS drama House of Boys and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (more about that coming up on PAPERMAG). Northover is in New York co-organizing "Return to the Pleasure Dome" an Anthology Film Archives benefit at Hiro Ballroom celebrating both the Archives' 40th birthday and the work of director Kenneth Anger. Northover interned at Anthology Film Archives while he attended Stella Adler, and has since befriended Archives founder Jonas Mekas, for whom he's curating a photography show in London later this year. The event, which Northover says is "to remind New York City that the Archives are something they believe in," will feature performances from Anger's and Brian Butler's band Technicolor Skull, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, the Virgins, Now We Are Here and a DJ set by Moby. Tickets are available here.
