Description

Lightning Over Water (1980)
Directed by Nicholas Ray and Wim Wenders
1h 31min
Rating: 15

Lightning Over Water is a collaborative documentary film by Wim Wenders and Nicholas Ray. Filmed in 1979, the work follows Ray during the final stages of terminal cancer. Balancing universal themes of life and death, Wenders’ loving admiration of Ray is clearly evident in this poignant portrayal of his last days.

This event forms part of the public programme accompanying Putti’s Pudding, an exhibition of works by Cookie Mueller and Vittorio Scarpati (9 September–12 November 2017) at Studio Voltaire.

‘Putti’s Pudding’ is a book and ‘final project’ by American writer and actor Mueller, and her husband, Italian artist Scarpati. Published in 1989, the same year both died from complications related to AIDS, it pairs drawings by Scarpati with writing by Mueller.

Reimagined as an exhibition at Studio Voltaire, Putti’s Pudding features forty–five original felt–tip pen on notepad drawings made by Scarpati when he lost the ability to speak, accompanying texts by Mueller, and a public programme of talks, readings, screenings and performance.
