We're very pleased to be screening two of our early collaborations with Paul Kelly at this months edition of the Heavenly Films night at Regent Street Cinema in London.
It'll be the first outing for 'What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day' and 'This Is Tomorrow' for quite some time and Bob and Pete will be in conversation and answering questions with director Paul Kelly and host Travis Elborough between the films.
If you've not visited the cinema before, you're in for a treat. It was the first purpose built for 'Optical Exhibitions' in London in 1848 and has been recently refurbished to the highest standards whist retaining it's original features.

Includes rare interview footage with the original architects and designers including Leonard Manasseh and Robin Day
8.30pm - 8.50pm - Q&A with director Paul Kelly and Pete Wiggs from Saint Etienne hosted by Travis Elborough
8.55pm - 9.40pm - What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day (2005) 45 mins
Shot during the summer of 2005, this enigmatic film was the second collaboration between Saint Etienne and director Paul Kelly. It follows a young paperboy's adventure across London's last remaining wilderness in the Lea Valley on the eve of the Olympic development. A poetic ode to a metropolitan hinterland that has been forever changed by the impact of the 2012 Olympics games. Beautifully soundtracked by Saint Etienne.
The first 30 people through the door on the night will also receive a special gift. For more info on 'Heavenly Films' releases please like the Facebook page of the same name.
