This portmanteau exploration of disparate characters scattered across London is a refreshing take on the complexities, contradictions and compromises of modern living.

These ten female-led shorts by emerging London filmmakers were produced by Four Corners, a filmmaking charity in Bethnal Green in conjunction with London-based community groups such as the Migrant Resource Centre.

Films feature a diverse array of British talent including Juliet Stevenson, Imogen Stubbs, Poppy Miller and Ivano Jeremiah, among others.

£13 full, £11 concs. Tuesdays + weekday matinees: £8 full, £5 concs.

The Sunday 17 February screening of London Unplugged will be followed by a discussion with several of the featured directors, hosted by Kate Kinninmont MBE.

All films are ad-free and 18+ unless otherwise stated. Groups are advised to arrive early as seating is unallocated.

Red Membership includes free access to all programmes for £20 / month.
