Another Brick In The Wall – A season of films on youth & revolt curated by Second Home & MUBI.
Dir. Alexander Payne, 1999
A classic high school movie following the formidable Tracey Flick on the campaign trail for class president. Election is an acerbic comedy with pitch perfect performances from Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick.
With the election next week, MUBI is collaborating with Second Home to curate a season which focuses on youth and revolt, raising awareness of politics and the importance of having a voice.
The season kicks off with award winning director Alexander Payne's Election, and finishes with a screening and Q&A session with director Eric Baudelaire.
Also included in the line-up are the coming-of-age, BAFTA winning This Is England, Jean-Luc Godard's dark political comedy and Venice Special Award winner La Chinoise, and the Oscar-winning Peter Watkins' controversial pesudo-documentary Punishment Park.
Screenings start at 7.30pm, admission costs £7 on the door and is free for Second Home members.
Ahead of the season, tickets for all x5 films in this series can be purchased from www.billetto.co.uk/secondhome
