The Nettle Dress12A
Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress from the fibre of locally foraged stinging nettles. This is ‘hedgerow couture’, the greenest of slow fashion but also his medicine. It’s how Allan survives the passing of his wife, leaving him and their four children bereft, and how he finds a beautiful way to honour her. Stunningly shot by award-winning filmmaker Dylan Howitt, this moving documentary follows Allan’s journey through seasons and years, foraging, spinning and weaving, before finally sharing a healing vision of the dress with one of his daughters.
Our screening on Thursday 21st September will be followed by a Q&A with the director Dylan Howitt.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
