Edge of the world

Every festival has a few choice acts/films that don't come off; the trick is to be thick-skinned and keep your options open. One of those that got away when planning this year's Flatpack was British Sea Power, who we hoped to have up with their rescore of Robert Flaherty's windswept documentary Man of Aran. The timing wasn't quite right, but happily it's all come together a few months later and BSP will be performing with the film at midnight on 21 August as part of a packed film-tent programme at the Green Man festival. Taking a lead from Flaherty's film we'll be showing an assortment of 'edge-of-the-world' movies including lunar shorts and cult documentary The Moon and The Sledgehammer (trailer below).
