You are invited to attend the first public screening of Tall Tales and Wonder Rooms, by Mohini Chandra, winner of The Arts Institute Film Commission 2021 – a new piece of work devoted to amateur sea divers and the stories they tell.

Using archive material from The Box to reflect on the experience of living in the South West, Mohini Chandra's new film explores the hidden histories of Plymouth and the city’s links to the wider world.

Through this annual commission The Box aims to build a body of work that reflects on Plymouth’s film heritage and looks towards its future. Previous artists and filmmakers have found the experience of working with the archive to be inspiring and challenging.

Join us to view this year's winning film, and learn more about the chosen filmmaker Mohini Chandra.

Delivered by The Box and The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth partnership.
