Double Bill/ Beryl Cook: Bosom Pals + A Day in the Life of Beryl Cook

Directed by Ginger Gibbons

Artist Beryl Cook’s deadpan approach to painting her subjects reveals the humour and pathos of the extraordinary; the pictorial equivalent of Les Dawson’s bawdy mimicry. Bursting with life, her work was championed by grassroots audiences if not the artworld elite. We’ll be screening the two episodes of Bosom Pals preceded by a rare documentary on Beryl Cook herself.
