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 of 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, Oxide Ghosts is made up almost entirely of never before seen footage and carries the blessing of Chris Morris, providing a rare glimpse of his extraordinary working practices.
Celebrating twenty years since Brass Eye’s transmission in 1997, this film is must for fans of the series but will also appeal to anyone with a curiosity about how great comedy is made.
Includes introduction with director Michael Cumming.
Starring: Chris Morris
Produced in: UK
Running time: 60 mins
Please note, this is an additional screening just announced, due to high demand. An earlier screening at 9pm is completely SOLD OUT.
