Nick Broomfield Presents


Hallstrom’s impactful debut is a coming of age story full of depth and sensitivity. Based on the autobiographical novel of the same name by Reidor Johnson. Young Ingemar (Glanzelius) weathers a particularly bleak period in his life with his dying mother and nasty older brother through a fascination for Laika the Russian space dog who was rocketed to his death.


Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield has picked 6 of his favourite films to screen as part of our summer programme. A fascinating insight into the influences on one of Britain’s most important living directors.
