A burlesque performer and his partner become unexpected parents in Travis Fine’s touching film. In 1970s Los Angeles, Rudy (Alan Cumming) meets closeted district attorney Paul (Garret Dillahunt) at the nightclub where he works. When the mentally handicapped son of Rudy’s next door neighbour is abandoned Rudy takes him in, and the couple find their purpose in life as a family, until a biased legal system questions the arrangement, prompting a fierce legal battle. Brilliantly acted by Cumming, and having won audience awards at festivals the world over, Any Day Now is drama at its most weighty and moving.

The screening will be preceeded by short film Transmission Woo.
A really fun and energized short, all about the drag and tranny scene in East London – presented by the amazing Jonny Woo, who captures the anarchism of both Manhattan Cable in the 90s and the underground party scene happening here, now. We meet the characters who are putting East London firmly on the map such as Larry Tee, Jacqui Potato and Princess Julia and get a taste of life in drag.
