Jude Law stars in a film that doesn’t exist

About

One morning in November Jude Law walked through Borough Market, just down the road from Tate Modern, and bought some fish. It was a performance for a ‘real-time movie’, in which Law and a cast of extras mingled with the market crowds, following a carefully plotted script. But the movie will never be made. Pawel Althamer, the artist behind the project, is interested in the way real life and the fictional world of cinema intersect. In preparation for Jude’s real life performance he commissioned a genuine movie trailer that was shown in cinemas to advertise the event. The idea was that the trailer you saw on the screens would be re-enacted live by Jude Law at Borough Market. TateShots was there to follow the action.
