Join us for Wes Anderson's watery adventure next to a resevoir at Woodberry Downs, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, which boasts a glittering cast including Bill MurrayOwen WilsonCate BlanchettAnjelica HustonWillem DafoeJeff Goldblum and Michael Gambon.  

Steve Zissou, sea-film auteur a la Jacques Cousteau, has reason to be melancholy: his partner has been eaten, perhaps by a mythic jaguar shark, his wife may be taking up with her ex-husband, a young man appears claiming Steve is his father (Steve hates fathers), his most recent films have tanked, he's having trouble raising money for his venture to revenge his partner, and he's attracted to a pregnant reporter who prefers the pretender.

At sea, in pursuit of the shark, will he escape pirates and mutiny, forge the bonds of fatherhood, place his arm around his wife, find the monster of the deep, re-establish box office hegemony, and discover a reason to smile? 

Woodberry Down is going through an exciting transformation, attributed to the effective collaboration between the four main partners Hackney Council, Notting Hill Genesis, Berkeley Homes & The Woodberry Down Community Organisation, that will enrich the area’s natural surroundings.  A multi-award-winning regeneration scheme located in the London Borough of Hackney, only moments away from Finsbury Park. Set across 64 acres, with 15 acres of parkland and an additional 42 acres of open water – including an idyllic nature reserve, the Woodberry Wetlands and a sailing lake. Woodberry Down is an urban haven for those who wish to enjoy a relaxing and fresh waterside lifestyle like no other.
