One Day Course: Working Class Heroes

Working Class Heroes

One Day Course: Working Class Heroes UC

A fascinating exploration into depictions of the working classes on the UK silver screen. This one-day course will examine the rise of the British New Wave and so-called Kitchen Sink dramas of the 1960s, including SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING and A TASTE OF HONEY, cult classics like KES, QUADROPHENIA and TRAINSPOTTING and focus on the work of actors like Vicky McClure and Maxine Peake and directors like Ken Loach and Shane Meadows. Expect plenty of film clips, discussion and of course a really good time – all the rest is propaganda. We’ll complete the day with a screening of the highly acclaimed Jawbone, written by Johnny Harris, and Johnny will join us for a post-screening Q&A.

Andrew Graves is a writer, poet and author of forthcoming book ‘Welcome to the Cheap Seats: Silver Screen Portrayals of the British Working Class’.
