Tomorrow is Saturday (2020, Dir. Gillian Marsh) shows collage artist and photographer Seán Hillen at a point in his career where he finds it almost impossible to work.

Trapped in a small terraced house, full to the brim with junk, unfinished art and boxes of memories, Hillen embarks on a journey to declutter and make sense of his life as he awaits the arrival of Amy – an American woman with whom he communicates daily but has never met.

This intimate and fascinating portrait of the effervescent Hillen explores what it’s like to be an artist with Asperger’s, having grown up through the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and how he finds inspiration, and a new lease of artistic endeavour in a chaotic world.

The film is followed by a Q&A between Seán Hillen and Birmingham-based collage artist and designer Mark Murphy, whose work features in Ikon for Artists. There is also the opportunity to join a live masterclass from Birmingham Collage Collective, exploring the craft of collage.

This event is part of Flatpack Festival (21-31 May). Full programme here.
