An evening of short films and music, taking place on and inspired by the seventeenth of November. Birmingham’s cinematic adventurers 7 Inch Cinema will be delving through dusty archives, old microfilms and a fair bit of Wikipedia in order to bring you superlative entertainment devoted to one apparently insignificant day. To give some idea of the lineup, 17 November saw the birth of Martin Scorsese, Peter Cook and Belgian ping pong legend Jean-Paul Saive, and it was also the day Russia landed the first remote-controlled lunar module on the moon.
This event is part of Autumn Almanac, a four-day celebration of Birmingham’s creative life showcasing the city’s artists, filmmakers and musicians. Ikon’s gallery spaces will exclusively exhibit works created in Birmingham, also hosting some of our best-known music festivals and organisations in a programme of live performances.
