On Saturday, 12 November, Warren Ellis will appear at the U.K. premiere of Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts, our feature-length documentary film about his work and its vision of the future. He will also participate in a conversation and Q&A session before the film’s screening.
The screening is part of the Comica 2011, the London International Comics Festival. The screening itself will be held at Bishopsgate Institute Great Hall, in London.
As previously announced, an advance screening of the film will occur on 14 October, during the New York Comic-Con. The U.K. premiere with Warren Ellis will occur exactly one day after the film’s world premiere, as an official selection of the Napa Valley Film Festival.
If you’re interested in seeing more of the film, SequartTV has a new trailer to coincide with the film’s release:
Captured Ghosts features the most extensive interview ever given by Ellis, whose groundbreaking body of work includes comic books The Authority, Planetary, Transmetropolitan, FreakAngels, and novel Crooked Little Vein. Spanning from his first memory watching the moon landing as a child to the recent boffo success of Red, Ellis’s acerbic wit and core belief in humanity come across like never before… revealing the unique point of view that has made him such a pivotal and influential figure to his massive audience of artists, journalists, scientists, and fans.
The film features Academy Award-winner Dame Helen Mirren (The Queen), Joss Whedon (director, The Avengers), Ben Templesmith (illustrator, 30 Days of Night), Matt Fraction (writer, Casanova, Invincible Iron Man), Darick Robertson (illustrator, Transmetropolitan), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), Claudio Sanchez (Coheed & Cambria), Joe Quesada (Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment), Stoya (adult film star), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille), and a Warren Ellis Muppet (!).
Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts is Sequart and director Patrick Meaney’s follow-up to Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, which Variety said “will intrigue the previously unconverted” and Wired called “an instant classic.”
