Distant Voices, Still Lives + post-screening discussion

As with the director’s short film trilogy, Davies’ début feature was drawn from his own life during the 40s and 50s and that of his siblings. The story of a working class family overseen by a violent, despotic father is transformed by the director’s ironic and emotionally powerful use of popular music into transcendent cinema.

Event details

On Wed 25 November there will be a post-screening discussion led by Rachel Hayward, our Film Programme Manager.
