This satirical comedy, released as Call Me Genius in America, stars British comedian Tony Hancock as a disaffected officer worker who gives up his job to become a full time artist. With an enthusiasm that makes up for his lack of talent, he manages to impress the bohemian artists of Paris, but is still scorned by the critics - until a mix up with the paintings of his talented former roommate shoots him to success. Screening in association with the Henry Moore Institute.
