Pixies frontman Black Francis has announced plans to co-present a film event at the British Library.

He will be attending an evening of film and literature with Josh Frank and Steven Appleby – the co-creators of his SelfMadeHero illustrated book The Good Inn, a novel about art, conflict and the pioneers of early cinema – on June 7.

The event will include a screening of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí‘s Un Chien Andalou, and Georges Méliès’s iconic 1902 film A Trip To The Moon. This will be followed by an onstage discussion with Francis, Frank and Appleby.

After the event there will be a book signing by all three of the artists. Appleby’s artwork for The Good Inn will also be on display at the British Library in London on the night.

Based on a yet-to-be-written soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t yet exist, The Good Inn weaves together two historical events – the explosion on the battleship Iéna at the French port of Toulon and the making of La Bonne Auberge, the earliest known pornographic film from France.
