Circus of Horrors (15) Film Screening - Introduced by Martin Carter.
Ken Loach’s iconic British and Yorkshire film has become a much-loved landmark of European cinema. Using a local and largely non-professional cast and working closely with author Barry Hines, Loach crafted a tough yet tender vision of a boy’s unique friendship with a kestrel, set against a brutal and uncaring industrial landscape devoid of hope and opportunity. Five decades on the film remains as impassioned and as moving as on its release. Screening length: 1 hour 53 minutes.
