Filled with faces familiar to British television, Luna follows two couples whose weekend idyll in an isolated English OTHER ACTIVITIES seaside home becomes a chance for spiritual healing. With his roots in graphic novels never far from the surface, McKean’s camera and script step in and out of reality to wonderfully unpredictable effect. The film overflows with powerful visuals, detailed artwork and a pitch-perfect soundtrack grounded by rich character development reminiscent of Dave’s prestige comics Arkham Asylum and Sandman. Luna won the BIFA and Raindance Best Feature Awards. comics in performance

Film Length:137 min

This animated folk legend was 8 years in OTHER ACTIVITIES the making and a labour of love for Isao Takahata, the legendary director of Grave of the Fireflies. A masterpiece to rank amongst Studio Ghibli’s finest, it bursts with lush, hand-painted images accompanied by an enchanting musical score. After initially being shunned by British cinemas, Kaguya was nominated for the 2014 Oscar for best animation. This is why we are delighted to offer it as one of our opening events.

For a third of a century Steve’s IF strip has been redefining the boundaries of political satire. In his cartoons our leaders have become grotesque monsters, and one Tory MP even wrote to The Guardian complaining that ‘to be forced to participate in Steve Bell’s perversions is degrading’. Now you can join Steve on a roller-coaster ride through the last five years of coalition government and bang up to date. Savage, funny, rude, transgressing all the rules of good taste and beautifully drawn, don’t make this evening IF but when. clocktower
