"It’s My Own Invention" film premiere at Close-Up Film Centre

The world premiere of a new motion picture from the maker of “Heated Gloves” at Close-Up, 97 Sclater Street, London E1 6HR. "It’s My Own Invention" is William English’s film portrait of Hugh de la Cruz, who for the last two decades has been compulsively obsessed with the perfection of a perpetual motion machine. Hugh calls it “My Invention” and frequently becomes agitated and impatient about its progress. Nobody will listen to him and if the machine is ever made, the powers that be will certainly want to sabotage it as it will render conventional sources of energy obsolete.
With a soundtrack by Dan Wilson, “It’s My Own Invention” is another extraordinary film from film-maker and Resonance broadcaster William English. Duration: 78 minutes. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the director anchored by Seth Pimlott.
