OXIDE GHOSTS: THE BRASS EYE TAPES
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.
Q+A: THE DIRECTOR OF BRASS EYE AND OXIDE GHOSTS,
Michael makes a welcome return to the Galway after his sold out show in 2017. He will be in conversation – spilling beans, shattering myths and letting cats out of bags.
Michael Cumming is a director and filmmaker, successfully working at the cutting edge since the ‘90s. A graduate of the Royal College of Art Film School and recent recipient of an honorary doctorate, Dr Cumming’s back catalogue also contains such gems as Jo Brand’s improvised comedy drama ‘Going Forward’, cult classic ‘Snuff Box’, political pranks and polemics on ‘The Mark Thomas Product’ and Matt Berry’s BAFTA winning sitcom, ‘Toast Of London’.
