Together + intro
Join us the day after International Women’s Day for an exploration of women in film, both in front of and behind the camera.
Together is a beautiful and expressive experimental feature about two deaf dockworkers wandering the streets of London, directed by Lorenza Mazzetti – the only female filmmaker to be associated with the Free Cinema movement.
Spearheaded by Lindsay Anderson, Karel Reisz and Tony Richardson, Free Cinema aimed to challenge the conservatism of mainstream film and find beauty and poetry in everyday working class lives. This mission is clearly apparent in Together, a bold and striking “silent” docu-fiction-feature (with music and sound effects) about the friendship between two labourers, which also draws clear inspiration from Italian Neo-realism.
This screening will be introduced by Dr Brighid Lowe, Senior Lecturer at the Slade School of Fine Art.
With the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
