YARN will screen films originally commissioned for the Letters Festival in Milan [http://www.festivaldellelettere.it/], interweaving them with new works inspired by the films across a range of mediums, including music and spoken word. The evening will feature work by filmmakers including Ruth Paxton, Helena Astbury, Kate Jessop, Michael Rittansberger, Alexander Taylor and Serena Corvaglia.
The YARN evening continues in partnership with Streetwise Opera.

Be guided by a narrator through their most recent work Fables – A Film Opera, a collection of short, 7-minute Film Operas, each created by the Streetwise Opera performers working with some of the most exciting composers and filmmakers in the UK.
