We're delighted to welcome Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon to introduce this special screening of the feature film version of The Trip To Greece.
When Odysseus left Troy it took him ten years to get back to his home in Ithaca. Steve and Rob – on their very own odyssey, ten years after their first trip together – have only 6 days.
They visit Lesvos, where Sappho wrote her love poetry; Macedonia, where Aristotle was born and tutored Alexander the Great; Athens, home of Plato and Socrates; the Peloponnese, the land of Mycenae, Argos, Sparta and the entrance to the underworld; before finally arriving in Ithaca.
On the way they argue about tragedy and comedy, myth, history, democracy, and the meaning of life.
As part of a Trip To Greece's Picturehouse tour, there is an additional same evening Live Q&A screening at Fulham Road Picturehouse, also featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon!
