Twisted Reel Presents Sleaford Mods ‘Invisible Britain’ Film Screening

Please note this is an 18+ event

Twisted Reel, Manchester’s irregular film night is very proud to be screening Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain

Part band doc, part look at the state of the nation, the film follows the band on their recent tour of the UK and visits places which probably don’t even exist in the minds of many – the neglected, broken down and boarded up parts of the UK that most would prefer to ignore.

Taking its cue from the likes of Patrick Keiller’s extraordinary Robinson Trilogy, the wanderings of Iain Sinclair, and J.G.Ballard’s comment “The future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul”, the documentary is a combination of raw footage of the band, interviews with fans, and a look at what individuals and communities are doing to resist so-called austerity measures.

Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain aims to tell the story of how the most relevant British band in years stuck two fingers up to the zeitgeist and gave voice to the pent up rage and anger at ineffectual politicians and their neglect of the institutions which underpin civilised society.
