Warren Ellis Announcements!

Sequart Research & Literacy Organization (in conjunction with Respect! Films) has a couple of exciting Warren Ellis announcements:

· On Saturday, 12 November, Sequart is honored to announce that Warren Ellis himself will participate in a Q&A session before the screening of Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts, our feature-length documentary film about his work and its visions of the future. The Q&A and screening are part of Comica 2011, a.k.a. the London International Comics Festival. The event will begin at 7pm at Bishopsgate Institute’s Great Hall, in London. Warren doesn’t make many appearances so get there early!

· We’re also pleased to announce that Captured Ghosts will make its official world premiere on Friday, 11 November as an official selection of the inaugural Napa Valley Film Festival, in California. We’re thrilled that our film will play alongside the premiere of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo and gala screenings of Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and Alexander Payne’s The Descendants.

Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts features the most extensive interview ever given by Ellis, whose groundbreaking body of work includes comic books The Authority, Planetary, Transmetropolitan, FreakAngels, and the novel Crooked Little Vein.

Spanning from his first memory watching the moon landing as a child to the recent boffo success of RED, Ellis’s acerbic wit and core belief in humanity come across like never before, revealing the unique point of view that has made him such a pivotal and influential figure to his massive audience of artists, journalists, scientists, and fans.

Along with Warren, the film features:
· Academy Award-winner Dame Helen Mirren (The Queen, RED),
· Joss Whedon (director, The Avengers, creator, Buffy the Vampire Slayer),
· Grant Morrison (All Star Superman, New X-Men, The Invisibles)
· Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, The King of Queens),
· Joe Quesada (Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment),
· Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation),
· Matt Fraction (writer, Casanova, Invincible Iron Man),
· Darick Robertson (illustrator, Transmetropolitan, The Boys),
· Ben Templesmith (illustrator, 30 Days of Night, Fell),
· Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter),
· Claudio Sanchez (Coheed & Cambria),
· Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy),
· Stoya (adult film star), and a
· Warren Ellis puppet!

Directed Patrick Meaney, Captured Ghosts is the follow-up to Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, which Variety said “will intrigue the previously unconverted” and Wired called “an instant classic.”
