Day Course/ Ida Lupino: Working Both Sides of the Camera

A full day session exploring the work of inspirational filmmaker Ida Lupino. Between 1931 and 1978 Ida Lupino was credited on more than 130 films and TV programmes. Already a Hollywood star, she set up her own company and established a successful career behind the camera as producer, writer and director, known to her crew simply as ‘mother’. She tackled social themes at a time when these were rare onscreen, combining an eye for documentary reality with an assured dramatic flair. Her remarkable story is still an inspiration to filmmakers today.

The event includes a full screening of Ida Lupino’s 1949 feature Never Fear AKA The Young Lovers.

Led by freelance film educators Rona Murray and Roy Stafford.
