Artist Anna Best will introduce a screening of cult documentary film 'The Moon and the Sledgehammer' as part of Artist's Choice, an occasional series of screenings chosen by artists.

About

The Moon and The Sledgehammer (1971) celebrates the eccentric life and philosophies of a family in Sussex. The elderly Mr Page and his adult children Jim, Pete, Nancy and Kath live in a ramshackle house in a wood twenty miles south of London. The trees cut the Pages off completely from the outside world and, isolated in their island-clearing, they let the twentieth century slowly pass them by. The film consists of interviews with the Page family, interspersed with footage of their lives in the woods.

The film has been chosen by artist Anna Best, who will give a brief introduction. She will also screen her own work Time and Energy (2014), a short film about the fragility of utopian living in a rural situation.

CAST Café food from 6.30pm, something hot and something sweet for £6.50
