  • Screening & Talk

Event overview

Marianna Simnett's The Bird Game (2019) will screen as part of A Winter’s Evening with Marianna Simnett, a live event organised in connection with her ongoing solo exhibition CREATURE at City Gallery Wellington.  The screening of the film will accompany a livestream interview with Simnett to discuss the themes of her work.

The Bird Game is a wicked fairy tale in which a loquacious and bloodthirsty crow, voiced by Joanne Whalley, lures six children to a secluded mansion and snares them in a sequence of deranged games. 

The Bird Game (2019) by Marianna Simnett was produced by Film and Video Umbrella (Producer Sophie Neave) and co-commissioned by the Rothschild Foundation, Frans Hals Museum, and Film and Video Umbrella. FVU is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
