Rebel Reel Cinema & 6876 present “Bronco Bullfrog”
A tale of teen angst and disaffection in London’s East End at the tail end of the 1960s, Barney Platts-Mills debut feature Bronco Bullfrog (1969) is beautifully photographed snapshot of its era.
The mostly improvised drama follows Del (Del Walker) and his mates as he gets into trouble around his native Stratford. He mills about, breaks into places and flirts awkwardly with girls and falls in love. In the same week, troublemaker Jo Saville , alias Bronco Bullfrog, has just got out of borstal and has a job lined up to steal goods from a freight train wagon. He recruits Del, but soon the pair end in bother and the law is fast on their tails.
Platts-Mills’ film is a wonderful social document of Stratford and London’s East End.

The original 6876 artworks were created using hand made Letterpress techniques in 1995. To replicate these in certain formats has always been a a challenge in terms of colour matching & definition, for instance woven labels.
So for the first time we decided to create from these artworks as close a representation of the original as possible in terms of colour and technique on a garment.
We used two screens to create an overlay & authentic low tech feel to the printing.
Collaboration with Admiral Sporting Goods.

Six Eight Seven Six and Rebel Reel Cine Club commemorative T shirt & Tote bag. To mark the screening of Jean-Luc Godard’s Film “Weekend” on May 5th 2022 at the Archway Tavern London.
In an interview with Alain Jouffroy in 1966, Godard explicitly summarized his use of blue-white-red and the significance he intended to give it: “I believe a little in nationalism, but in a nationalism of poetry, not at all political: I like that Delacroix is French and Beethoven is German…”. And “Do you believe in the soul of a people? ” asks Jouffroy.“I can’t express it that way because it sounds a bit too big, but it is a bit that.”
The imperfect and handmade look of the letterforms, the bad kerning, the large gaps between letters and words, the justified blocks of text, the awkwardly dotted capital I’s. Even when he used an existing typeface – like Antique Olive in ‘Week end’ (1967) – the letterforms look as if they were cut out with an Exacto knife.
