Hackney Picture House and Heavenly Films present Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair. Now how is that for a title? This is a documentary about the early history of the Manic Street Preachers by Kieran Evans and Robin Turner and will be screening at the Hackney Picture House on Thursday May 2 at 6.30pm.  

Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair was originally planned to be a 20 minute DVD extra for the re-mastered and expanded edition of Generation TerroristsHeavenly Films and Hackney Picture House will be screening the rare full length 76 minute version created by acclaimed filmmaker Kieran Evans and long-time Manics collaborator Robin Turner.

Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair sees the band and key players such as Martin Hall (band manager), Bob Stanley (Saint Etienne), Steve Brown (Generation Terrorists producer) and James Brown (ex-NME) talk frankly about the band’s early career, their debut album and the circumstances that created it. Also expect to see an archive of video and printed material that the filmmakers were granted access to by the band.

After the film there will be a DJ set at the Hackney Attic playing everything Manic Street Preachers. Only the first 150 people to show their Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair ticket at the cinema from 11.30am onwards will get a wristband to gain entry.

Tickets for the film are available here.
