POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE (15)
To help celebrate Pride in London, we’re screening this hilarious cult classic starring Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine, based on the biography by Carrie Fisher. It’s your chance to see it on the big screen, while sipping a delicious mocktail – you won’t want to miss it! Tickets also include free admission to an on-site London Fire Brigade exhibition and a look around one of the biggest industrial spaces in Vauxhall. Bird’s Eye View, a group dedicated to promoting great films about women, will be hosting an entertaining Q&A afterwards.Joining us will be film critic, Simran Hans from The Observer and Sophia Monks Kaufman of Little White Lies.
We're also delighted to announce we'll be showing 'Heresy of Champna' with the director, Rowan Wigley in attendance. It's a surreal parody that satirises a typical shapoo advert. The dreamlike world in this short film is an imagining of personified hair strands and hair products, where the physical flaws of hair in its natural state are exchanged for the emotional flaws of an ill functioning family who are obsessed with perfection. It'll be a wonderful addition to the evening!
Special announcement : The Migration Museum will open specially for all our viewers from 7-8pm before the show starts – it’s a terrific pop up exhibition telling stories of movement to and from Britain in fresh and engaging ways in this dynamic new London venue. Get there early to enjoy this special space.
