Artist Emin joins Revolution in film

Autobiographical pic to be shot on Super 8, Super 16

Tracey Emin, the bad girl of Brit art, is making a movie with Michael Winterbottom and Andrew Eaton’s Revolution Films.

Emin is set to direct an autobiographical account of her youth in the English seaside resort of Margate. She will shoot the low-budget movie on Super 8 and Super 16 over a period of nine months.

Anita Overland will produce for Revolution.

Emin is notorious for bearing her soul and her sexual history in her installation art. She is best known for putting her unmade bed on display, and for a tent quilted with the names of all the people she has ever slept with.

She has already given an account through various works of her rape at age 13 and her subsequent promiscuity. There is also, however, a strong comic element to her confessions.
