How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential, and criminally overlooked all at the same time?

Take a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers Ron & Russell Mael, celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favourite band's favourite band.

This screening is followed by a live satellite Q+A with Edgar Wright and Ron & Russell Mael of Sparks, broadcast from Sundance Film Festival: London 2021.

Audio Description is available for this event.
