We are delighted to present the regional premiere of our patron Phil Collins’ new feature film. Tomorrow Is Always Too Long conjures up a distinctive vision of Glasgow from the perspective of institutions that describe the scope of human experience and define us as social beings.
Collins met people in maternity hospitals, schools, community groups, and social clubs for the elderly in Glasgow, asking them to sing songs, make predictions for the future, debate the status of freedom in today’s society, guide us through the city’s most famous prison, and dance like there’s no tomorrow. These sequences are framed through an imaginary public-access network, one which, high on bad attitude and with just a hint of mayhem, makes an appeal to the epic pleasures of channel surfing and the potential for low-budget television to reinvent itself through its viewers and their take on life as we somehow still live it.
For this regional premiere we are pleased to welcome director and HOME patron Phil Collins for a post-screening Q&A.
