Festival of Ideas: Dickens in London - Re-imagining Dickens
Dir: Chris Newby 70 mins, 2012, UK Please note: this was screened in May 2012
Dickens' life and writing continues to inspire artists and filmmakers today. This interactive, cross-platform experiment brings together artist filmmaker Chris Newby and writer Michael Eaton to form a biographical portrait of Dickens' life via film and the spoken word. Based on Dickens' journalistic essays, we present five new films by Chris Newby, which use animation, puppetry and contemporary footage to visualise the five original radio plays written by Michael Eaton with a Neil Brand score.
With an introduction by writer Michael Eaton, who said:
The result is astonishing. Not only are these five films visually exceptional, original and imaginative, but Chris's style, montage and imagery are, to me, inherently Dickensian.
Fee: £8.00 full /£6.50 concessions.
