This Christmas, DOC Supper is partnering with Peckham Spring for another great night of movies and food.
A night to eat, drink and be merry whilst enjoying the finest selection of short film, animation and documentaries.
You are invited to “Pay-What-You-Can” or make a donation and all proceeds will go to local charities. Team members from local charity projects will be present on the night to talk about their work and what the money raised will be going to support.
Films of the Night
Start of the evening - 7:00pm

Don’t Have Me Back (George Barber) (3:59)
A group of deaf and partially deaf music enthusiasts to observe Childhood’s performance of ‘Don’t Have Me Back’, to explore how deaf audiences would experience a live gig.

The energy of the band and Jacqui’s majestic interpretation is received positively by our audience, demonstrating that a musical performance isn’t just for hearing audiences
The Things They Say – Dorothy Allen-Pickard (8:23)
A young girl finds herself estranged from her mother and goes out collecting conversations with people she meets around South London.

Official selection London Short Film Festival and Open City Doc Fest
The Bigger Picture (Animation) – Daisy Jacobs (7:25)
When it comes to acclaim in the short film world, prestige doesn’t come much bigger than seeing your film win a BAFTA and get nominated for an OSCAR (unless of course it won!). Add to this awards at dozens of film festivals worldwide and it’s easy to see why Daisy Jacobs’ treasured National Film and Television School Animation The Bigger Picture is regarded with such esteem.
Crack – Peter King (11:38)
Powerfully-performed with a pitch-perfect tone, 12-minute comedy Crack follows Jay and his gang, B.H.S. (Brixton Hit Squad), as they deal product, refine their ‘cook’ and go head-to-head with rival gangs.
Vali – Helvetica (Francois Mercier) (10:14)
VALI is a story based upon an old Scandinavian myth where the god VALI was conceived for the sole reason of seeking revenge. In this surrealistic film VALI is a young woman whose sole purpose is to seek revenge upon her lover Marco. It’s a fun story about female empowerment with a killer soundtrack!

Mr Madila or The Colour of Nothing documents a series of conversations between Rory Waudby-Tolley and a gifted spiritual healer, exploring the inner mind, the fabric of the universe, and the nature of reality itself, through the sacred art of animation. Oooooooh.
Battlecock! - Ben Mallaby (8:47)
The Dukinson brothers have finally beaten their arch rivals, but the Krullmuller sisters are out for blood and revenge is a dish best served underarm.
