David Lynch: The Art Life

Director: John Nguyen/Olivia Neergaard-Holm/Rick Barnes, 2016, USA, 88 mins, Cert: 15 - Sat 29 July // 18:00 Sun 30 July // 18:00 Tickets: £5 (full) / £4 (concession) Lauded with critical acclaim at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival and the 2016 Venice Film Festival, DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE is an intimate portrait of a master director, screenwriter and producer. Known for cult classics *The Elephant Man* (1980) *Blue Velvet* (1986) and *Mulholland Dr.* (2001) and with a revival series of mystery-horror *Twin Peaks* (1990-1991, 2017) on the way, David Lynch is one of the most prolific filmmakers working in the industry today. The formative years of his life are explored in unprecedented depth, from his idyllic upbringing in small town America, to the dark streets of Philadelphia, recounting the events that helped shape one of cinema’s most enigmatic and revered directors. Narrated by Lynch himself, the documentary infuses his art, music and films in striking fashion, shining a light into his unique world, and offering audiences a greater understanding of the artist, as well as the man.

Ex-Easter Island Head: Large Electric Ensemble

For those who lament the death of guitar music, let Ex Easter Island Head point you in the direction of a beatific future. Featuring waves of mallet-beaten guitar overtone nirvana, pulsating phasing chatters of acousmatic byrdsong, whatever is happening it is always sublime - if you're not a fan already you most certainly will be after this… Critically acclaimed Ex-Easter Island Head are a UK collective who incorporate multiple prepared electric guitars, percussion and other instruments to explore interplay, repetition and melodic intervention. The group's live performances have been praised for their hypnotic energy, compositional flair and unique spectacle. Salford Large Electric Ensemble comprises performers drawn from all corners of the thriving Manchester and Salford underground to present an ambitiously scaled work for eighteen prepared electric guitars and percussion. Utilising a self-developed language of extended techniques and mechanical preparations, graphic notation and aleatory procedures the piece sees the groups' shimmering electrified minimalism expanded to a bold new scale, encompassing members of Gnod, ILL, Action Beat, Mother and tapping into the vast resources of talent at Salford's Islington Mill and on the Manchester-based Tombed Visions label. Support will come from woodwind voyager Chris Cundy. Utilizing bass clarinet, saxophones, and other unusual woodwind instruments Chris splits his time between the UK and Canada. He has toured internationally with Cold Specks, Timber Timbre, Guillemots, and Fyfe Dangerfield. He also accompanies songwriters including Little Annie, Baby Dee, Devon Sproule, and Edd Donovan. Recently Chris has started to release a series of albums under his own name. Becoming friends with Billy Childish - artist, musician, and founder of Hangman Records & Books at an early age instilled and inspired in him a strong DIY approach, one in which quickly led to establishing experimental projects including Grace & Delete - a duo with fellow painter and electronics musician James Dunn. He also started to explore self-developed playing techniques such as multi-phonics, circular breathing, micro tonality and generally speaking a more tactile approach to the instrument.

Soundtracked by a deft contemporary score (composer James McWilliam), *London Symphony* takes the viewer on a poetic journey through London today, a city that is as vibrant in places as it is quaint in others, and as marked by change as it remains quintessentially identifiable. Diverse, energetic, and meditative, Barrett's film explores the contradictions and charms of modern life in our capital city.

Oxide Ghosts - The Brass Eye Tapes

OXIDE GHOSTS - THE BRASS EYE TAPES

Followed by Q&A with Michael Cumming Director:Michael Cumming, 2017, 60mins, Cert: 18TBA - Tue 26 September // 20:30 Tickets: £8 Made from hundreds of hours of unseen material from his personal archive, director Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed both the pilots and the series and, over a two year period, witnessed the highs and lows of Brass Eye from a very personal perspective. Part documentary, part artwork – the film is designed solely for live screenings and is made up almost entirely of never before seen footage. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a rare glimpse of his extraordinary working practices. Michael will be doing a Q&A after the film – spilling beans, shattering myths and letting a few cats out of the bag. Celebrating twenty years since Brass Eye’s transmission in 1997, this film & Q&A sessions are a must for fans of the series but will appeal to anyone with a curiosity about how great comedy is made. *'[Oxide Ghosts] offers a well-judged and very rare insight into [Brass Eye’s] making, encapsulating the fun and covert excitement that went on while the project was still under wraps, before all the legal wrangling kicked in. If you're an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see Oxide Ghosts, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation'* - Chortle
