About to premiere his difficult second film ‘No Self’, Benjamin (Colin Morgan), a rising star filmmaker, has been too long in the edit. Unable to see the wood from the trees, he finds solace alone in his flat with tubs of ice cream and a cat for company. On the eve of its premiere at the London Film Festival, encouraged by his friend Stephen (Joel Fry) and hard-partying publicist (Jessica Raine), Benjamin is introduced to a mesmeric French singer called Noah. As they journey through their version of the city, filled with vegan restaurants, comedy clubs and avant-garde dance performances, the pair slowly manoeuvre themselves and each other towards love. Boasting original music from James Righton (of the Klaxons), and great performances from its young cast, Simon Amstell‘s Benjamin is a bittersweet comedy about feeling isolated and struggling for connection.

The screening on Thursday 21st March at 6.30pm is in association with Q-Film.

Please note due to technical difficulties the Hard of Hearing screening planned on Sunday 17 March at 5pm for this title is unable to go ahead.
