Edinburgh-based graphic artist Edward Ross uses comics to guide the reader through cinema's history and to illustrate the ideas and concepts behind classic and cult films. If you are a Filmhouse regular, you might already be familiar with his insightful comic book essays on film theory - intelligent yet accessible (and downright fun) pamphlets that tackle subjects as diverse as food on film, point of view and set design.Read More
Edinburgh's Filmhouse and Blasted favourite's Mark Cousins have just announced a UK-wide film season that will launch April 11th at Filmhouse, BFI Southbank, and other key venues across the UK.
Cinema of Childhood, inspired by Cousins' own A Story of Children and Film, will include 17 films (mostly new to UK audiences) from China, Iran, Latvia and beyond. They aim to explore depictions of childhood that are universal, but also different from the Hollywood formula audiences have become so accustomed to.
The full list of films is available of the Filmhouse website.
