Event description

Description

For the past ten years BUG has brought cutting-edge music video creativity to the big screen at BFI Southbank, with Adam Buxton as the show's informative yet irreverent guide.

Now, in a special show in conjunction with the British Museum, in celebration of the exhibition The American Dream: pop to the present, BUG presents an idiosyncratic survey of American music videos – from the late 70s, when bands like Devo and Talking Heads explored the new medium, through the 80s pomp of MTV, when art and commerce collided in big budget videos by David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Hype Williams, to the YouTube generation, when creativity went viral in the hands of OK Go and others.

As always, Adam Buxton supplies fun facts and laughs in equal measure during this whistlestop tour through a different form of American pop art.

Not suitable for people under 18 years of age.
