A new film about Andrew Logan and his fabulous Alternative Miss World Show.
Loved the world over by celebrities and misfits alike, Logan has hosted the Alternative Miss World Show since 1972. Memorable highlights include artist David Hockney judging the first one, musician David Bowie not being able to get into the second, film director Derek Jarman winning the third and triumphing in a court case against the Official Miss World (with a little help from a young Tony Blair).
Featuring contributions from Brian Eno, Ruby Wax, fashionista Zandra Rhodes (who designed all of Logan’s hostess costumes), Richard O’Brien, Nick Rhodes and Grayson Perry, the film was made over five years,
charting the mounting of the 2009 Show, bringing to life its history through newly discovered archive, exuberant animation, and plenty of offbeat humour from contestants old and new.
Raucous, liberating and sexually charged, The British Guide to Showing Off speaks to the outsider in all of us. For anyone who has ever wanted to break out.
It is hoped that director Jes Benstock and Andrew Logan will both attend this special evening, which launches the Bath Film Festival.
