SET THE THAMES ON FIRE
UK Premiere: Set The Thames On Fire + Q&A with Ben Charles Edwards, Sadie Frost and cast
Dir Ben Charles Edwards. With Max Bennett, Michael Winder, Noel Fielding, Sally Phillips, Sadie Frost.
UK 2016. 90 min.
Two young dreamers plot to escape a flooded future London.
Ben Charles Edwards shows that the visionary tradition of British cinema is alive and well in his dazzling dark comedy debut. Set The Thames On Fire has echoes of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Terry Gilliam, but finds its own dark, melancholic beauty as two young men plot to escape a dystopian future London ruled by corporate tyrant The Impresario. Co-starring Noel Fielding as The Impresario’s sinister sidekick, Set The Thames On Fire is “brimming with visual invention … [and] terrific fantasy conceits” (The Hollywood Reporter).
