Sleaford Mods’ Invisible Britain film

Sleaford Mods’ state of things docu-film premieres this weekend

Sleaford Mods’ Invisible Britain docu-film will screen for the first time this October in Nottingham and London. Directed by Nathan Hannawin and Paul Sng, the film was shot during the group’s UK tour earlier this year. The documentary combines performance footage of band members Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn, as well as conversations and interviews with Sleaford fans about resistance efforts and campaigns against government austerity measures. Invisible Britain was crowdfunded via Indiegogo. The project exceeded its target back in February, raising 165 percent of their desired funds.

The film will screen 3 October at London Picturehouse as part of the Doc ’N’ Roll Film Fesitival, followed by a live Q&A with the directors. The Nottingham screening, at Broadway Cinema on 10 October, will be followed by a Q&A with Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn. Find more information at the Sleaford Mods facebook page.
