Directed by John Humphreys
UK 2015, 75 minutes
Mythology and folk-tales have circulated around the whereabouts of Shakespeare’s skull for aeons, and the Bard’s bonce provides the starting-point for this off-kilter tale of two men with a painful secret, and a talking bug. Known for his videos for the likes of UB40 and Bentley Rhythm Ace, director John Humphreys’ work has always had a distinctive look which he brings to bear on his first feature, using black and white to play up the contrast between inner-city Birmingham and the woods of Warwickshire.
We are delighted to host the world premiere of Numbskull, and cast and crew will be present to talk about the film after the screening.
