£70 full / £50 memb & conc / £35 under-25


A fascinating trip around the side-streets and back-to-backs of working-class cinema, exploring the British New Wave kitchen sink dramas of the 50s and 60s, such as SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING, A TASTE OF HONEY and THIS SPORTING LIFE, to KES, QUADROPHENIA, BRONCO BULLFROG, THAT SINKING FEELING and THIS IS ENGLAND. From stuffy post-war stereotypes to more ethnically diverse work and more female orientated films, this is an unflinching look at a gritty sub-genre and its constant clashes with controversy, censorship and the establishment. Expect Mike Leigh, THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY, RITA SUE AND BOB TOO and more recent offerings such as FUNNY COW, JAWBONE and TYRANNOSAUR. If you’re a fan of challenging, unforgettable British movies, this course is it, all the rest is propaganda.
