DocHouse Watch Party: The Whalebone Box + Q&A

Ben Williams, Managing Editor

3 April 2020 Entrance is free — Book now

To celebrate HOME’s online release of The Whalebone Box with MUBI, they are hosting an online Q&A with Dochouse, with director Andrew Kötting.

“The film embraces the notion of the home-made but always within the confines of the sound and image perfect. An exercise in hauntological confabulation…” – Andrew Kötting

You are invited to watch the film on MUBI and then join an online Zoom Q+A with Andrew Kötting, hosted by Sarah Perks at 8.30pm on Friday 3 Apr.

Follow the instructions on HOME’s website to join in.

We’ll keep you up-to-date with HOME’s superb response to the Coronavirus situation as more events are announced. We are delighted to see organisations like this adapting and showing real innovation in a difficult time.
