Book Tickets

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, this biographical comedy drama fuses live-action film, archive footage and animation to tell the story of Harvey Pekar (Paul Giamatti). Harvey leads a dull, monotonous life, working as a file clerk at a local veterans’ hospital. At home, he fills his days by reading, writing and listening to jazz, and compulsively collects books and records which fill the walls and floors of his apartment. Inspired by the work of his friend Robert Crumb (James Urbaniak), Harvey writes and self-publishes comics about the minor trials and tribulations of everyday life, and gradually attains celebrity status as his work gains initially a cult and then a mainstream following.

Also screening is a short documentary:

Zine There Done That

Dir: Fergus Cruickshank & Luke ‘Luca’ Cockayne

As Luke recovers in hospital from a serious mental health breakdown, they discover the potential for zines to rebuild her life and rediscover her voice. This intimate documentary is captured on an eclectic mix of formats which wrinkle and glitch to mirror the delicate piecing together of Luke and their connection to the underground mental health zine community in the UK. A tender, creative, and ultimately empowering look at how art can bring people together to regain control of their lives in a digital world.
