Make Your Own Damn Art is a feature documentary about artist Bob and Roberta Smith by John Rogers, who says: ‘The film follows Bob over the course of three years from Leytonstone to Brooklyn, Walsall to Ramsgate. It was screened in the summer of 2012 when London was enveloped in the madness of the London Olympics – which is apt as Bob designed a poster for the Paralympic Games.’ A question and answer session with the director John Rogers follows the screening.
