'TURNED TOWARDS THE SUN' (updated)

If ghosts can laugh, then dear old Micky's must be having one hell of a time! Many of us having sometimes sweated blood to get it done, our film about his life is finally to see the light of day (or night) at the BFI London Film Festival in October. Not only that, but both showings were completely sold out within minutes of tickets going on sale to the public! A DVD with additional content will follow, and I'll post the details as soon as I have them.

Details of the two showings, and a link to the trailer, are given on the links below;


The film itself is a feature-length documentary filled with poignancy and laughter, and will be  particularly meaningful to those interested in either the Saint-Nazaire Raid, or in Colditz Castle. For all those who knew Micky, it will also be a welcome opportunity to revisit this remarkable and much-loved character. I guess it really is true to say they just don't make 'em like that any more!
