The Ritzy New Stories shorts are back!

Sunday 29 July, 3.00

Thursday 2 August, 6.45

Last February The Ritzy launched a short film competition aimed at local filmmakers, and during the Ritzy 100 closing celebrations we presented the best of local filmmaking talent to a full house. 

Now, to celebrate the release of local documentary UNFLAPPABLE, we are bringing back the audience favourites! Not to be missed!

UNFLAPPABLE

Directors: Neil Arun, Will Aspinall. UK 2012. 24 mins

Cairo. Tunis. Tripoli. Brixton? In 2011, the Arab world was seized by revolt. Inspired and unemployed, two friends form South London hatch a plan to unite their neighbourhood. UNFLAPPABLE is the story of the Brixton Flag. It is a comedy about community, friendship and the quest for the perfect flagpole. It is also an affectionate, offbeat portrait of Brixton - the only place in London where a leftfield scheme about flags could get a fair hearing.

Preceded by:

After 50 years of marriage, Mary comes to terms with John, who is a shadow of his former self.
