We're delighted to welcome director Bill Bartlett and producer Denis Copeland to the screening on 15 November for an introduction and Q&A.

A love letter to the seaside town of Scarborough and a celebration of true DIY punk spirit, Dead Mint documents the career of the mischievous musical outfit Grandads Don’t Indicate. Born from the friendship of best friends Denis and Steve, they evolved from a bedroom recording project into a band staging regular absurdist concert performances. Inspired by US underground rock of the 1980s and defined by their playful humour, they penned tributes to the sights of their beloved hometown of Scarborough, through which they guide us in this warming documentary.
