A sparkling cinematic portrait of Brighton, in all its bohemian and campaigning glory, that darts between past and present, featuring a rare chance to enjoy a live performance of the music by Brighton Sinfonietta. ‘Father Neptune' is dunked in a raucous 1951 ritual, 1930s marchers celebrate the Soviet Union. Today’s residents parade at Pride and commemorate Gaza and this day-in-a-life culminates in astounding puppetry and the winter festival, 'The Burning of the Clocks'. Composer: Ed Hughes, Director: Lizzie Thynne, 48 Minutes.
Age suitability: 6 +
With Voyage to the Moon, (Georges Méliès’, 13 minutes, 1902)
