Dig! (15)

Friday 10th March 2017
£4.00 adults, £3 unwaged

Whether or not you’ve heard of the bands The Brian Jonestown Massacre or the The Dandy Warhols really misses the point of this remarkable film, and for a music documentary, there isn’t even all that much music.

Filmed over seven years, Dig! is an essay on the tortuous relationship between people who perceive themselves as artistic geniuses and pretty much everyone else.

You are asked to bring a donation (non-perishable basic food such as tins or dried food) for the Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank when you come and see a film.
