WILD COMBINATION is director Matt Wolf’s visually absorbing portrait of the seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell. Before his untimely death from AIDS in 1992, Arthur prolifically created music that spanned both pop and the transcendent possibilities of abstract art. Now, over fifteen years since his passing, Arthur's work is finally finding its audience. Wolf incorporates rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur's family, friends, and closest collaborators—including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg—to tell this poignant and important story.

Oval Space Cinema brings you monthly screening events from independent filmmakers. Curated with dedication to the art and power of filmmaking, OS Cinema covers everything from groundbreaking political documentaries to art house explorations. Always geared to adding something extra to the cinematic experience, this is not your average trip to the flicks. From Q + A’s with directors, to heated panel discussions, our programme looks to engage and inspire film fans.

Come and enjoy our carefully selected range of independent films from across the globe, in a space where people can come together to eat, drink, talk and expand their minds.

This event is 18+.
