A group of high-school students light fireworks in the hope of awaking the ghost of a young woman who has been sighted over several years. Each of the friends has a reason for being there, and on one night the living and the dead are joined together... This powerful, thought-provoking theatrical short is the directorial debut of acclaimed designer-illustrator laundraw, who set up Flat Studio in 2019 and is tipped as ‘the one to watch’ in a new generation of anime filmmakers.

Tickets £15, concessions £12 (Members pay £2 less).
