Danton's Death (Clarke, 1978): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm
This TV play screeniong is part of the complete Alan Clarke retrospective at BFI Southbank. You can find all the details here.
Here is the BFI introduction:
A passionate fan of Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck, Clarke was invited by the
BBC to mount the playwright’s other masterwork, and produced this
thoughtful adaptation with Stuart Griffiths. Designer Stuart Walker
provided elegant studio sets, framed by Clarke with long lenses for a
chilly tableaux effect. Norman Rodway and Ian Richardson excel as the feuding
Danton and Robespierre.
