Another Brick In The Wall – A season of films on youth & revolt curated by Second Home & MUBI.
THIS IS ENGLAND
Dir. Shane Meadows, 2006
A modern classic of British cinema featuring an irresistibly authentic performance from newcomer Thomas Turgoose. Set in 1983, This Is England is a coming of age tale set in Thatcher-era England that follows a precocious 12 year old as he falls in with a gang of charming skinheads.
With the buzz of the General Election 2015, 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 winningThis 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
