One Hour Intro/ Political Thrillers in the 1970s: From Z to Circle of Deceit

Politically the 1970s was a turbulent decade and many filmmakers, writers and actors felt driven to explore some of its most pressing issues on screen. One of the results was a memorable cycle of politically motivated thrillers that attempted to bring the charged atmosphere of the streets onto cinema screens across Europe. Through an exploration of some of the key works and practitioners present in States of Danger and Deceit this One Hour Intro will help contextualise the season.

Led by Andy Willis, curator of States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s.
