Simon Faithfull is an artist whose work has been directly influenced by Buster Keaton. Like Keaton, Faithfull often appears on screen within his work as a lone, blank-faced figure and both Faithfull and Keaton are often on doomed or absurd quests that usually end in disappointment.

In the first half of the evening, Simon Faithfull introduces a screening of his film 0º00 Navigation, which is in part a homage to Keaton and records an obsessive and deranged journey exactly along the Greenwich Meridian (the 0º line of Longitude). To follow, a rare opportunity to see one of Buster Keaton's last film appearances in the 1965 Canadian short The Railrodder, in which Keaton doggedly crosses Canada from east to west on a railway track speeder.

Both films will have live musical accompaniment and a post-screening Q&A with artist Simon Faithfull.
