Free projection of films onto the NT flytower.

In the 1930s the GPO Film Unit was home to some of Britain's most audacious creative talents. Among them were WH Auden and Benjamin Britten, the two central characters in The Habit of Art, who brought a radical approach to the development of sound in British film, most famously in Night Mail (1936). Also a chance to see their collaborations Coal Face (1935), God's Chillun (1938) and Lotte Reiniger's delightful animation, The Tocher (1938), scored by Britten in a particularly playful mood.
