Description

JOIN US FOR THIS REMARKABLE FILM - AN EVOCATIVE STORYTELLING EXPLORING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BRISTOLIAN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE PEOPLE, THE ARTISTS, THE PLACE.

“Occasionally it’s like a dream sequence in a David Lynch film, disturbing, unstoppable…But mostly it’s full of laughter and hope.' TIM ATACK, REALTIME

In August 2018, In Between Time produced The Democratic Set with Australia’s Back to Back Theatre. Inviting a cast of extraordinary Bristolians to bring themselves, a simple idea and whatever props they needed.

One hundred short performances later this film can now be revealed – the story of a city told through its people. An elderly couple dressed as Laurel and Hardy; a new born; five women leaping about on rebound boots; a man demanding to be seen as himself not as his disability.

As part of Encounters Film Festival, The Democratic Set premieres alongside artistic provocations, conversation and the stories behind the scenes in a celebration of Bristol's warmth and raw energy.

Following this event, the film will be shown at Bristol MShed between 11-13 Oct 2019
