NEW SHORTS: 'Til Death Do Us Part

This event has ended.

18:30 Sat 7 Jan 2017

Hackney Picturehouse

Decades in, can the ‘spark’ be salvaged? These dramas give us a varied look at love and long term relationships. Perhaps swinging or sex in public are your kindling of choice, or maybe there’s no hope left. Watch out for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones), Hayley Atwell, Michael Smiley, Rupert Procter, Phil Davis, Amanda Donohoe and James Wilby.
