Upcoming: Ungentle, Huw Lemmey in collaboration with Onyeka Igwe

16 September–31 December 2022
Opening Preview: Thursday, 15 September, 6–8pm

Ungentle is a major new film commission exploring the complicated relationship between British espionage and male homosexuality, based on extensive historical research and a new script by Huw Lemmey, co–directed with Onyeka Igwe.

The film moves from St James’s Park, a historical cruising ground at the centre of British power, to Beaulieu, a historic country house in Hampshire that served as a Special Operations Executive training school, and its surrounding countryside. Lemmey and Igwe employ the expansive potential of artist film in 16mm, using the fictional and factual to challenge the nature of authorship and agency.

This is Lemmey’s first institutional exhibition, and the artists’ first collaboration.

Ungentle is commissioned and produced by Studio Voltaire. Supported The Studio Voltaire Council and The Ampersand Foundation, with additional support from Cockayne – The London Community Foundation and The Elephant Trust.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
