“Hale knew, before he had been in Brighton three hours, that they meant to murder him.”

So begins Graham Greene’s Brighton Rock. In the Boultings’ 1947 film adaptation, Fred Hale’s run through the streets of Brighton is among the most celebrated location filming in British cinema, helping to root the film in a particular place and time. Shot by Harry Waxman using hidden cameras – behind double glass in shop windows, concealed in the back of a van or carried in cardboard boxes – the real and fictional collide as Brightonians are captured going about their business as Fred runs for his life through the city streets.

FRED’S RUN is a sequence of images displayed on monitors in numerous shop windows on the route of Fred Hale’s iconic run to the Palace Pier.

See it between 10-12 November 2017.

The images reveal hidden details it is not possible to see in a regular viewing of the film, with the focus now on the extras and passers-by.
