Matthew’s Puppet Film Club – Team America: World Police
Presented by Little Angel Theatre
A monthly film night curated by artist and puppet maker Matthew Robins (Flyboy).
Team America: World Police (2004)
Thursday 11 July, 7.30pm
In 2004 South Park (and Book of Mormon) creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker released Team America: World Police . . . a film entirely performed by marionettes (actually even better than that, they are supermarionettes, you know – like a Thunderbird). It’s the USA and a paramilitary police force are attempting to save the world from Kim Jong-Il and his bid for global destruction.
The BBFC gave it a 15 rating due to “strong language, violence, sex, all involving puppets” so what other reasons do you need to come and see this film? That and a singing Kim Jong-Il marionette.
This film is rated 15.
Each month Matthew will be screening a different film, handpicked and featuring his favourite onscreen puppets. From well-known films featuring, let’s say, Gremlins or The Muppets, to more obscure films and cult rarities.
Not only is there a film, but each month there will be other (themed) ways to get involved including (but not always) made-up games or puppet bingo, competitive audience craft, special guests or live performances, puppet disco and maybe some prizes. Each month will be different!
There will be a bar and snacks, as well as specially homemade merchandise and souvenirs for you to buy or maybe even win.
This event is suitable for everyone over the age of 15.
All tickets £10
Running Time: 2 hours 30 mins approx
