Ultra Culture Cinema #10: Sightseers
Ultra Culture Cinema returns to the ICA this November for a special preview of Sightseers, Alice Lowe and Steve Oram's superlative British road comedy.
Already destined to become a mainstay of rep houses and midnight screenings, the film sees fledgling caravaners Chris and Tina traverse the British Isles in search of brave new worlds, bold new visions and a trip to the Keswick Pencil Museum — home to the world's very first pencil.
As tensions mount and relationships sour, the pair push good old fashioned British holidaymaking to the limit, under the watchful (and intermittently horrific) eye of bravura British director Ben Wheatley (Kill List). The result is 88 minutes of warped, weird and wildly hilarious business from two of the UK's most unsung comedic talents.
