Interactive film screening exploring an alternative history of the UK. Featuring live soundtrack and Q&A with local historians.

A collaboration between Dead Rat Orchestra and artist/filmmaker James Holcombe - TYBURNIA is an experimental 16mm documentary with live soundtrack which explores the history and legacy of London's Tyburn Gallows - the city's principal hanging spot for 600 years. The film charts an alternative history of the UK, illuminating the twists and turns of sovereign and political whimsy, church and state, and the birth of mercantile capitalism. TYBURNIA highlights parallels between our past and our present, raising questions about the nature of power.
