Edited by Phil Stubbs.
Terry Gilliam's new short film, The Wholly Family, will be available to download from January 23 2012. It can be viewed through the streaming service Distrify, from Dreams on this webpage, by clicking on the image directly below.
To promote the web launch of the short film, there will be an event at The Guardian's head office in London. The Wholly Family will be screened at the Guardian News & Media offices in London on Monday 23 January, at 7pm. Before the screening, Terry will be interviewed by Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw. Afterwards, members of the audience can put their questions to the director.
The event is now sold out, but The Guardian is inviting people around the world to join a web "liveblog", during which members of the web audience can also pitch questions to Gilliam.
