Cast includes: N/A
Drop in to enjoy a drink or snacks at our cosy cafe/bar for the launch of our Powell and Pressburger season.
For the creative-minded, we will also be offering a limited capacity zine-making session inspired by the striking palette and treasure of artefacts celebrated throughout Anderson's oeuvre.
Author your own miniature title, a work of poetry, nonsense or ennui.
Led by Tiger-lily Martinez you can have a go at making your own low-fi zines and badges - all inspired by Wes Anderson - who in turn was inspired by Powell and Pressburger films and aesthetics!
Do bring along your own zine content if you have it - but materials will also be provided.
The zine workshop is a FREE session but spaces are limited so please book in advance to secure your place.
You might also be interested in the evening screening on Saturday 4 November of Wes Anderson's masterpiece, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

About Cinema Unbound: Powell and Pressburger season
The Creative Worlds of Powell and Pressburger is a major UK-wide celebration of one the greatest and most enduring filmmaking partnerships: Michael Powell (1905-1990) and Emeric Pressburger (1902-1988). Bold, subversive and iconoclastic, challenging and changing the visual language of film, their passionate collaborative artistic vision, spanning 24 films together between 1939 and 1972, is a vital part of the fabric of British cinema history.
In our series this Autumn, see original Powell and Pressburger classics, learn about their craft in filmmaking workshops, and enjoy a selection of modern films which bear the hallmark of their impact on filmmaking beyond the pair's generation.
