The Moon and the Sledgehammer

11 Feb 2016

Q&A with director Philip Trevelyan

A rare screening of a cult classic. Isolated in a ramshackle home in rural Sussex, the Page family lets the 20th century slowly pass them by, managing without running water, electricity or gas. Yet initial judgements of quaintness and eccentricity are challenged as it emerges that they are in control of their world in a way that we can never be in control of ours.
