EPIPHANY SHOWING – WHITECHAPEL ART GALLERY SEPTEMBER 11th

Epiphany (Suzy Gillett, 2014) 36 mins

Epiphany is about the rise and fall of the mystics and anarchists of the English Revolution. The Fifth Monarchists stood up to the restoration of the Monarchy in 1661 and were hung drawn and quartered for their efforts.The Muggletonians lasted for 300 years, keeping a low profile they had their own religious beliefs that successfully continued until well after the restoration of the Monarchy. Celebrating these little known political and religious sects of the English Civil War, a collective of people made a re-enactment of Venner’s uprising on the 6th January where he marched into the city to St Paul’s fighting off the army in a hopeless battle; incarnated by contemporary anarchists, Ian Bone and Martin Wright.
