Biting Tongues film event at the Greenroom, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, Manchester, England

(A proposed film event at MCRs Greenroom on 24th June 2005, centered around Howard Walmsley's new film - provisionaly titled "Earthquake Land". Other shorts will include Howard and Ken Holling's recent "Abduction", together with a new live performance piece by Ken and Graham, based on the life of Martin Denny who died recently.

Showcase Screening of new video production by director Howard Walmsley, with supporting live performance including a sound-text piece by Graham Massey and Ken Hollings and a psychogeographic experiment by broadcaster and MAP founder Bob Dickenson

This will be the first public screening of this stylised docu-drama which offers a satirical look at the regeneration of Manchester. The film charts a fractured narrative - as the quakes continue, the lives of the characters become less stable.

The cast includes Manchester comedy scene regulars Jonathan Mayor, Noel Kelly, Patrick Gallagher and Roland Gent. 808 State frontman Graham Massey provides the specially commissioned soundtrack.

Members of Toolshed/Homelife/Biting Tongues will be involved as Ego In Exotica Sum,reconstructing the Martin Denny Group of the late 50s
