Before Salvador Dali became one of the most famous artists of all time, there was a young man desperate to make something of himself, an extraordinary talent and a friendship that would define his art and those around him.

Paul Morrison’s latest feature since 2003’s Wondrous Oblivion, provides us with the extraordinary story of the relationship between of three of the leading artists of their time; Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel and Garcia Lorca. Little Ashes follows a young Salvador Dali from his beginnings living in the Residencia de Estudiantes, leading to his dynamic relationship with poet Federico Lorca. It is a moving story of friendship, love and betrayal, and a tale of the complexities of young love and sexual identity.

The shots of the picturesque landscapes of Spain alone makes Little Ashes an unmissable spectacle and Robert Pattinson of 'Twilight' fame brings Dalí to the screen with precisely the irreverent and eccentric personality you would expect from one of the creators of Spain’s avant-garde movement.

We are very happy to announce that director Paul Morrison will introduce this screening and there will be a Q&A session with the director after the film.
