June 7th
A Taste of Honey (1961)
directed by Tony Richardson

Shelagh Delaney adapted the hit play she’d written as a teenager into a key Kitchen Sink drama film of the era,
making use of its Greater Manchester locations and
industrial landscapes. Rita Tushingham makes her debut as seventeen-year-old Salford girl Jo, who is trying to find
comfort in her life and herself, and the script explores
then-taboo themes through her relationships: she locks horns with her careless mother Dora Bryan and her suitor Robert Stephens; finds romance with black sailor Paul Danquah; and friendship and support from gay co-worker Murray Melvin. It won a Golden Globe, Cannes prizes and BAFTAs for its actors and writing, and was named Best British Film.

Pierrot Le Fou (1965)
Directed by Jean-Luc Goddard

Bored by the conventions of his work and marriage,
Jean-Paul Belmondo escapes from his life and goes on the run with former girlfriend Anna Karina. From the most radical and experimental filmmaker of the most innovative Nouvelle Vague, Godard described his characters as “the last
romantic couple”, and cast them within a satire of con
sumerism, a pop-art aesthetic with a startling colour scheme, and an exposition of cinema, painting, literature, and their meaning and place in life. Godard received the BFI’s
Sutherland Trophy, given to “the maker of the most original and imaginative film”.


June 28th
Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
directed by Arthur Penn

Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway and Gene Hackman head the Barrow gang, and thrive financially during the Great Depression – thanks to a successful trade in robbery. One of cinema’s landmark films, it broke the rules regarding visual violence and sympathy for criminals, with an ambivalence towards their crimes marked by an air of cool style and hot sexuality. Presenting the characters as rebellious outlaws ensured the attention of the 60s anti-establishment
counterculture, just as they’d captured the impoverished people’s imagination in the 30s. It gave way to what would be called New Hollywood, a time when cinemas were filled with young audiences, attracted by auteur projects made with poignancy and purpose.
