David Firth’s morbidly fascinating worlds are known to delve deep into the darkest recesses of the human psyche – it’s hard to shake the visceral effect of Salad Fingers or Spoilsbury Toast Boy in a hurry. Using surrealist techniques to explore depression and mental illness with some of the darkest humour this side of the 21st Century (his work has been featured on Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe and Mitchell & Webb), Firth has become one of the UK’s most significant independent animators. Umbilical World celebrates some of his most recognizable shorts, alongside a special screening of his brand new work, Cream.

Screening Changes

Please Note: there is an additional screening of Umbilical World / Cream on Thursday 16 Feb (15.30), not advertised in the GFF Brochure. We apologise for any confusion.
