Jeff Keen was a British experimental filmmaker whose frenetic, fast-paced work combines pop culture imagery with sociopolitical themes and, more frequently in his later films, a fascination with war and violence. Beginning his cinematic career in the early 1960s, Keen was one of only a handful of British artists making experimental work at the time.
While Keen's pop-infused sensibilities has been at odds with other, more popular styles of British avant-garde cinema throughout the years, his work has been typically well-received and supported, even if his fame has still yet to spread outside of his home country.
Keen is also a painter, collage artist, sculptor and poet. He passed away on June 21, 2012.
