Film director Jes Benstock presents an edited version of his fabulous film The British Guide to Showing Off, which follows the build-up and execution of the twelfth Alternative Miss World, Andrew Logan’s pastiche of the Miss World Beauty Pageant that he created in 1972. The film charts the history of the show as well as Andrew’s extraordinary career. Jes will talk about the making of his ‘mixed media collage’ film featuring archive clips, photos, animation and interviews with a colourful cast including Brian Eno, Ruby Wax, Richard O’Brien, Nick Rhodes and Grayson Perry.Buy tickets
