School Birds Screening + Q&A

4 April @ 19:00 21:00

An evening of drinks, a screening of the film, an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse, and a Q&A session.

Join the filmmakers at SET Social for a special screening of “School Birds”, a film directed by Felix Marrington-Reeve (he/him) and Quentin Corker-Marin (she/her). After meeting at university while studying VFX, Felix and Quentin have worked together on multiple projects, creating the computer animated films “Describe Your Last Trip Outside”, featured in the BFI’s Britain on Lockdown, and “Ascent” in collaboration with The Alexander Whitely Dance Company and The Parasol Project. School Birds is their first collaboration using live action

Doors open at 19:00, screening begins at 20:00. Oppurtunity to purchase drinks at bar throughout the night.

Film Synopsis:
Burnt out by the pressures of conforming to an isolating world, a primary school teacher finds himself unable to find meaningful connection in his life. At breaking point, he gives into his inner desires and begins to dance, or perhaps fly. Will the school’s janitor accept him, and can he find the strength to accept himself? Echoing the harm caused by Section 28, this trans-led film explores a crisis of identity, finding joy and queer acceptance through dance.
