Jack Bond is one of Britain’s most radical filmmakers and over a fifty year career has redefined documentary, art-house drama, music video and television. After reading about Jack Bond’s films, Klaxons’ Jamie Reynolds became an obsessive, collecting Bond’s films and discussing them endlessly with the only people he knew who’d seen them, Vice writers and VBS producers. Jamie was desperate to meet Jack and earlier this summer VBS agreed to help make it happen.

In VBS meets Jack Bond, Jamie and Jack spend the day together in Hampstead pubs recounting Jack’s tales of loosing 50 mental patients on a shoot, bumping into famous friends, and discussing Jack’s relationship with Jane Arden. Eventually, drunk, they finally end up at the fun fair, reciting poetry on the teacups.

In 1965, Bond, then 28, spent two weeks with Salvador Dali filming the revolutionary documentary Dali in New York with his lover Jane Arden. They would remain the only film crew Dali would ever agree to work with. The pair worked together on a series of dense, obscure, psychedelic films: Separation (1967), The Other Side of the Underneath (1972), Vibration (1975), and Anti-Clock (1979). In 1982 Arden killed herself and Jack banished the films to the Technicolor vaults. They would remain there unseen for over 20 years, until the BFI released them on DVD last year. Jack’s work is now an inspiration for a new generation of avant garde, fearless filmmakers.
