Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes + Q&A
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Brass Eye, a rare opportunity to see this cult film, which will only ever be screened as a live event. Made from hundreds of hours of unseen and behind the scenes footage from his personal archive, Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed the series and both pilots and, over a two-year period, witnessed the highs and lows from a very personal perspective. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a unique glimpse of his extraordinary working practices.
At these special 25th anniversary shows, in his introductions and post film Q&As, Michael both builds and shatters Brass Eye myths. Michael Cumming is a director & filmmaker whose back catalogue - aside from Brass Eye - contains such gems as The Mark Thomas Product, Snuff Box, Mark Steel Lectures, Matt Berry’s BAFTA winning sitcom, Toast Of London and its follow up, Toast Of Tinseltown, and with Stewart Lee, the critically acclaimed, break-out music film of 2021, King Rocker.
