The history of cinema is teeming with stories of mythical films that never made it onto screen. Works such as Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon, David Lynch’s Return Of The Jedi and Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune are famously unproduced masterpieces – masterpieces simply because they can only ever exist in the imagination. The Unfilmables is a response to the greatest films never made. Wrangler (featuring Stephen Mallinder (ex-Cabaret Voltaire), Benge, and Phil Winter from Tunng) and Francesca and Mica Levi (Under The Skin soundtrack, Jackie soundtrack) calibrate film, music and imagination to bring lost film concepts to life in two live audiovisual performances.
