Raindance Film Festival screening: The Kingdom of Survival – Sunday 9th October, 2.15pm
Hit the outlaw highway with M.A Littler as he explores modern skepticism in America with the likes of Noam Chomsky, Will Taylor and Joe Bagean. Stylishly constructed, the film uses music and archive footage to great effect and seems a personal odyssey for the filmmaker. It is a journey on which he expects no easy answers, and the film offers none, rather focussing on the general idea that there are alternatives to our current situation.
Following the film Alex Fitch (Electric Sheep Magazine) will be conducting a Q & A on stage with the film’s director, M.A Littler.
Screening at the Apollo Piccadilly Cinema, Lower Regent Street. Nearest tube: Piccadilly Circus
