REEL LOVE: A DAY OF MOVIES ABOUT MOVIES is a special collaboration between the Genesis and the publisher Unbound, and curated by graphic novellist (and Genesis poster artist) Owen Michael Johnson to support the upcoming graphic novel, Reel Love, currently crowdfunding at Unbound.
Presenting a one-day event screening films about the movie business: from projectors to production hell to popcorn, the day is an affectionate celebration of the art of making movies and includes Woody Allen's The Purple Rose Of Cairo, Tim Burton's Ed Wood and Giuseppe Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso.
We offer a £15 ticket that covers all the screenings and events of this special day, including to an extra bar screening of Joe Dante's Matinee, an exclusive poster, and a very special comic book craft workshop, where you can learn how to make your ideas come to life on the page. We also offer individidual tickets to each screening. Get yours now!
This film will open with an intoduction by Owen.
''Because of his eccentric habits and bafflingly strange films, director Ed Wood is a Hollywood outcast. Nevertheless, with the help of the formerly famous Bela Lugosi and a devoted cast and crew of show-business misfits who believe in Ed's off-kilter vision, the filmmaker is able to bring his oversize dreams to cinematic life. Despite a lack of critical or commercial success, Ed and his friends manage to create an oddly endearing series of extremely low-budget films.''
