Typist Artist Pirate King (12a)

Wednesday 17th January, 1.30pm, tickets £4

Typist Artist Pirate King puts forgotten Sunderland-born artist Audrey Amiss on the map. Inspired by her extensive archive of diaries, letters and art, the film weaves real events into an imagined journey as Audrey goes on a road trip with her psychiatric nurse.

From acclaimed British filmmaker, Carol Morley, this dark and funny exploration of the growing friendship between two women as they hit the road in an electric car looking for reconciliation, is filled with adventure, humour and compassion.

Starring Monica Dolan, Kelly Macdonald & Gina McKee

Coinciding with Arts Centre Washington’s screening of Typist Artist Pirate King, Sunderland Film Club will also be screening Carol Morley’s third feature – Dreams of a Life on Thursday 25th January.


Arts Centre Washington’s Film Programme is supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network.
