Capital Celluloid - Day 25: Tuesday Jan 25, 2011

Terence Davies Trilogy: Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 44-46 Pollard Row, E2 6NB 8pm


The highlight of the week without a doubt. The three films, Children (1976),  Madonna And Child (1980) and Death And Transfiguration (1983) are a fictional account of Davies’s life follows his alter ego from birth to death and examine the clash between his strict Catholic upbringing and his masochistic sexual fantasies. A remarkable achievement by arguably Britain's greatest living director and a landmark film in post-War British cinema. Highly recommended. Entry is £5 for non-members and free for Close-Up members.
