Oxide Ghosts is Michael’s very personal tribute to Brass Eye, the series he directed between 1995-1997. The film is made up from hundreds of hours of unseen material from his own archive, and has the blessing of both Chris Morris & Ted Maul. In 2017 & 2018 Michael toured the film and Q&A show around The UK & Ireland for 80, sold out, performances.
The film will only ever be shown at live events and we are currently in discussion with venues across the country to arrange more screenings and Q&As . If you are interested in hosting such an event, please go to the contact page and get in touch. Apart from the many cinema shows, the film has now been screened in comedy clubs, music festivals, arts centres, a cafe, a library, a pub and a couple of large tents. Screenings scheduled for 2019 so far are:
1st Birmingham. Flatpack Festival.
12th Birmingham. MAC.
25th Totnes. Sea Change Festival.
14th London. EartH + Stewart Lee
“[Oxide Ghosts] offers a well-judged and very rare insight into [Brass Eye’s] making, encapsulating the fun and covert excitement that went on while the project was still under wraps, before all the legal wrangling kicked in. If you're an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see Oxide Ghosts, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation.” - Chortle.
