Shot on 35mm and hailed as the most original British film of the modern age, Essex Spacebin is like nothing put to film before.

The cult narrative of the movie pushes comedy into uncharted territory as we follow the adventures of the lovable Lorraine Willy, a middle-aged woman who has suffered a life of mental illness. Lorraine believes she has been infused by God with a divine purpose that only she (and an Intergalactic Rasta named Hogan) can fathom. She begins her journey looking for a 'star key' - which she believes can help her access a parallel world known as the 7th Realm where she hopes to meet the maker.

Seeking to conquer time and space with help from her friends, family, a Nissan Skyline and a PDF of Amen-Ra's original Essex Pyramid construction specs, will Lorraine herald the existence of a portal to another world?
