The Writer with No Hands @ Moston Small Cinema | England | United Kingdom

This is an “Exclusive Pre-release Screening” as it is not released until 27th June 2017!

The Writer with No Hands is a British documentary, which follows academic Matthew Alford as he tries to establish that the accidental death of Hollywood screenwriter Gary Devore was actually an assassination by the US government. The film premiered at Hot Docs in 2014 but was left undistributed for over three years. A second version of the film, with a new producer, score, and run time, is due for release on Amazon and iTunes on 27 June 2017, the twentieth anniversary of Devore’s disappearance.

On Friday 27 June 1997, Devore had been driving home after completing a new feature film script. He was last seen at a Denny’s Diner in the Mohave Desert around 1am on the morning of the 28th. The subsequent manhunt remained unsuccessful until the following July when an amateur detective located fragments of Devore’s car next to the California Aqueduct near Palmdale.

The California Highway Patrol’s investigation concluded that Devore must have driven the wrong way along the highway, crashed into the water and drowned in his vehicle.

The Acting Class screening in Moston Small Cinema @ Moston Small Cinema | England | United Kingdom

The Acting Class (Deirdre O’Neill & Mike Wayne 2017 77 mins).

When Tom Stocks, a young man from Bolton has to turn down a chance to study at the East 15 drama school because he cannot afford the fees, he sets up a campaign to highlight socio-economic exclusion in the arts. Tom is not alone. Actors from working class backgrounds are struggling to get in and get on in an industry stacked against them. This film features Christopher Eccleston, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Maxine Peake, Andrew Ellis and Samuel West talking about the rising barriers to success. And this is an issue not just for those who see their dreams thwarted because they do not have the ‘bank of mom and dad’ to back them. Who gets to be on our stages and screens matters to all of us. Whose stories get told, what images we have of ourselves, who we think ‘we’ are, helps shape our identities. And that is political.

Followed by Q&A with the directors.

Heroin addict Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) stumbles through bad ideas and sobriety attempts with his unreliable friends — Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Begbie (Robert Carlyle), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Tommy (Kevin McKidd). He also has an underage girlfriend, Diane (Kelly Macdonald), along for the ride. After cleaning up and moving from Edinburgh to London, Mark finds he can’t escape the life he left behind when Begbie shows up at his front door on the lam, and a scheming Sick Boy follows.
