OXIDE GHOSTS: THE BRASS EYE TAPES + Q&A

Made from hundreds of hours of unseen and behind the scenes footage from his personal archive, Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed the series and both pilots and, over a two-year period, witnessed the highs and lows from a very personal perspective. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a unique glimpse of his extraordinary working practices.

At these special 25th anniversary shows, in his introductions and post film Q&As, Michael both builds and shatters Brass Eye myths.

Michael Cumming is a director & filmmaker whose back catalogue – aside from Brass Eye – contains such gems as The Mark Thomas Product, Snuff Box, Mark Steel Lectures, Matt Berry’s BAFTA winning sitcom, Toast Of London and its follow up, Toast Of Tinseltown, and with Stewart Lee, the critically acclaimed, break-out music film of 2021, King Rocker.

This event is a must for fans of the series but will appeal to anyone with a curiosity about how great comedy is made.

‘Oxide Ghosts offers a well-judged and very rare insight into Brass Eye’s making. If you’re an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see it, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation’ – Chortle

‘In honour of the Brass Eye birthday there have been tributes published and repeats scheduled, but the surprise popularity of an almost unpublicised touring event, called Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes, perhaps says even more about the enduring influence of the show. Oxide Ghosts has been quietly selling out in independent cinemas across the land’ – The Guardian
