Brass Eye

To celebrate the ground breaking comedy series, first broadcast in January 1997, The Sugar Club presents a night devoted to all things Brass Eye.

You actually get to vote on the episode you want to see projected on the big screen too!

Made from hundreds of hours of unseen material from his personal archive, director Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed both of the pilots and the series and, over a two year period, witnessed the highs and lows of Brass Eye from a very personal perspective.

The film is designed solely for live screenings and is made up almost entirely of never before seen footage. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a rare glimpse of his extraordinary working practices.

Following the screening the Director will spill some information on Brass Eye and answer questions from the crowd.
