Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

02.06.2014 | Film | BY:

This August see’s the 10-year anniversary of the ever popular Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House. Running from the 7th-20th August, they are set to be the showcasing of premieres, as well as showings of cult classics and much-loved movies, such as Annie Hall, Ghostbusters and E.T.

One of the UK premieres includes the documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, being shown on Wednesday, 13th August. Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, this is a vividly cinematic documentary film that constructs an imaginary day-in-the-life of the oh-so-cool Australian musician, author and screenwriter Nick Cave.

Following him from his Brighton bedroom to the Sydney Opera House, it explores the creative process and the nature of collaboration. Forsyth and Pollard manage ‘guest stars,’ archive material and live footage to create a mysterious and moving portrait of a one-of-a-kind artist.

Other available movies: the double bill of Hairspray (1988) + Spring Breakers on Friday 15th as well as The 400 Blows on Monday 18th August.

Doors open at 6.30pm, DJ from 7pm and the film starts at approximately 9.00pm. Selected screenings will also be specially introduced by the film’s stars and directors.
