The Cumbrian art-rock sextet British Sea Power is back with the live soundtrack for the selection of classic Polish animations.

Premiered at the 15th Kinoteka Polish Film Festival in London, the performance was specially commissioned and will be staged again during the LIFF.

 Join British Sea Power as they take us on a personal journey through their own favourites of Polish animated cinema, including Rybczyński’s Oscar-winning Tango, Szczechura’s ode to MC Escher, Journey, plus more.

The members of the band are no strangers to working with film. In 2012, they provided the sci-fi tinged soundtrack for Out of the Present, an account of cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev’s time in outer space, as well as scoring Man of Aran, Happiness and documentary From the Sea to the Land Beyond.
