Typist Artist Pirate King

Saturday, February 24 , 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

In a last-ditch mission to get recognition for her talent, Audrey Amiss (Monica Dolan), a non-conformist, forgotten artist persuades her psychiatric nurse Sandra (Kelly Macdonald) to take her on a road trip back to where her story began – but with so many deviations into the past along the way, will they ever make it?

With natural sympathy and warmth, film-maker Carol Morley has created this likeable, generous, imaginative response to the work of this neglected Sunderland-born artist. Amiss’s work is held in an archive at the Wellcome Collection in London, where Morley discovered the artist’s passport with its scribbled entry under Occupation: “Typist Artist Pirate King”

it is tremendously shot by Agnès Godard and the compassion of the film is palpable.” **** The Guardian
