Following a full screening of The Death of Stalin, director Armando Iannucci will take part in a Q&A based on politics in film and TV. 

In Moscow in 1953, after being in power for 30 years, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin takes ill and dies suddenly. When his body is discovered, panic ensues amongst the Council of Ministers who tussle to keep order, eliminate the competition and ultimately take power. Join us as we screen the full film The Death of Stalin, followed by a Q&A with its director, Armando Iannucci who’ll be discussing representations of politics in film and television.
