  THE RUNNING GAME

Many people know that our company, Smart St. Films is the equivalent of a rennaissance man.  We love art, politics, poetry, philosophy, cinema and sport - and our favourite sport is rugby.  We've made a couple of the best documentaries on the game ever produced.  Intimate insights into the people who play the it and the culture of the game.  Before it became an adjunct of TV and show business rugby tours were part cultural, part sporting.  When we made The Running Game in 1981-82 the players representing Australia received ten pounds per day.  They travelled for nearly four months and we travelled with them.  THE RUNNING GAME is one of the legendary documents of the game.  In the early hours of this Sunday morning Australia will play England as they did in 1981.  You can buy freshly minted copies of THE RUNNING GAME from our catalogue.  Here's a clip from this much loved film:

Heroes

  John Cooper-Clarke

                 Poet

John Cooper Clarke is one of our favourite poets.  His tight rhythms and sharp insights have outlived the punk scene in which he first emerged, opening for acts such as The Clash, Joy Division and Elvis Costello.  He's one of England's National Treasures.  The following interview with John appeared in the English magazine The Idler which gives a great insight into his thinking and how amphetamines saved western democracy.
