This exhibition celebrates these unsung heroes of British comedy cinema and highlights new British talent. Supported by The CTBF UK Premiere: The Hippopotamus + Q&A with director John Jencks and cast UK 2017. Dir John Jencks. With Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Emily Berrington, Fiona Shaw, Tim McInnerny, Geraldine Somerville. 89min. Digital. Cert TBC. Courtesy of Electric Shadow Roger Allam shines as disgraced poet Ted Wallace, who turns detective to investigate strange events at a country house. Could the rumours of miracles be true? John Jencks’ film of Stephen Fry’s provocative black comedy both tightens and heightens the plot, while Allam relishes every syllable of Blanche McIntyre and Tom Hodgson’s wonderfully wry, witty, whisky-soaked dialogue. + Random Acts: Untamed Truths UK 2016. Dir Sophie Mars. 2min Supported by MindsEye Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less) UK Premiere: The Night My Mother Killed My Father La noche que mi madre mató a mi padre + Q&A Spain 2016. Dir Inés París. With Belén Rueda, Diego Peretti, Eduard Fernández, Patricia Montero. 94min. Digital. EST. Cert TBC Belén Rueda (The Orphanage, The Sea Inside) stars as Isabel, who is angling for a role in her screenwriter boyfriend’s next movie. But when the film’s star comes to visit, a violent death occurs. The surprises just keep coming in this deliciously twisted comic murder mystery, which feels like Almodóvar directing an Agatha Christie. + Random Acts: May Cause Death UK 2016. Dir Tegn Limited. 2min The Night My Mother Killed My Father is supported by Instituto Cervantes
