No Dogs – presented by Jonathan Hodgson, February 3rd 2020

No Dogs

Jonathan Hodgson presents a special screening of seven three-minute films made by his third year BA Animation students for Flintlock Theatre’s No Dogs project. They explore the contrasting experience of Irish and Afro-Caribbean immigrants to the UK in the mid-twentieth century and the evolving relationship to notions of Britishness of their descendants.

Twenty eight final year students from BA Animation at Middlesex University were recently commissioned by Oxford based Flintlock Theatre https://www.flintlocktheatre.com/flintlock-shows to make 7 x 3 minute films for their No Dogs project, a combined theatre and animation project funded by Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund. Led by Flintlock Theatre, the project seeks to explore the shared and contrasting experiences of Irish and Afro-Caribbean people who emigrated to the U.K in the mid-twentieth century, and the evolving relationship to notions of Britishness of their descendants.

At the same event Jonathan will also do a special presentation of his 2015 film RUG and may even bring the actual rug itself with him. Maybe we should screen the film on the rug…
