Released towards the end of April 2013, Last Night I Drempt of a Tea Ceremony is a new film by Marc Blackie & Disappointed Virginity.
Filmed one Friday afternoon in a North London Kitchen, with music by These Papercuts Project and performed by Lian Cooper, Last Night I Drempt of a Tea Ceremony can be described as usual for Blackie "A blend of the erotic, the surreal and the anhedonic".
quote [I had originally shot a version of this with another performer several years ago, but hadn’t been entirely happy with the end result. I spent a while trying to locate an electric oven to recreate one of the scenes from the original short and discovered that such appliances are increasingly uncommon in the United Kingdom. It’s a sad tale, but in the end I had to settle for a good old gas oven and do my bid for the eradication of the remaining fossil fuel supplies].
