After the film, SCROLL DOWN to watch an exclusive Q&A with directors Gillian Marsh and Gretta Ohle, and Seán Hillen.

Tomorrow is Saturday is an intimate portrait of the life and work of Irish collage artist Seán Hillen. Diagnosed in his late 50s with Asperger’s, Hillen has reached a point where he finds it almost impossible to work in his tiny terraced house packed with junk, unfinished art and boxes of memories. As he awaits the arrival of his beloved Amy, an American woman with whom he communicates daily but has never met, he embarks on a process of decluttering which unearths memories of an idyllic Newry childhood; photography career cut short by censorship; and the evolution of a unique photomontage style that is infused with political satire.
