Stiletto, Adam Roberts. Super 16mm, Colour, Sound, 12 min, CO/UK, 1997/revised, 2009 Adam Roberts’ Stiletto, enacts a few moments in the life of a young orphaned boy who restlessly wiles away the time in the suburban idyll of his aunt’s unloving home. Haunted by self-doubt and loathing for all that surrounds him, he creates through a series of ritualistic offerings, an animal deity, which he keeps caged in a shed at the bottom of the garden and whose existence ultimately leads to a horrific finale. Adam Roberts recently screened work at Performatica, Mexico, the Zodiak Festival, Helsinki, the Point, Eastleigh, the Filmhuis, Den Haag and at Todds Gallery, Hastings. He was born in Colombia and lives and works in London. DVD 2 includes the featurette 'Interview with Adam Roberts' with Miranda Pennell and Jonathan Romney, directed by Gordon Shrigley.
