Two unique independent short films will be screened at the Ritzy Cinema focusing on the lives of Londoners.
The two films being shown are very much London films, albeit focusing on vastly different eras.
Chris Ward the writer and director of both said:
“I’m a Londoner and I’ve always been interested in telling the stories of people struggling to find their place – it’s what I know best.”
It is a Wet Paint Films double bill, production, a brand that has been bringing unusual performance pieces to London audiences since the mid 80s with a post-punk theatre theme.
Chris Ward said: “Wet Paint’s approach to the arts scene totally mirrors mine: it is the ordinariness of the artist/actor/singer that makes them stand out. What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor is in effect a short documentary that screams the chosen decadent lifestyle of Nina Hamnett straight into the viewer’s face.”
The films will be wrapped up with an audience Q&A hosted by Hackney-based London historian and playwright Ken Levy.
The screening will take place on Thursday, January 22.
