Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 96: Tue Apr 5

Made in Britain (Clarke, 1982): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.15pm


This controversial TV film is part of the complete Alan Clarke retrospective at BFI Southbank. You can find all the details here.  
The screening on Wednesday 13 April will be followed by a Q&A with Tim Roth.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Trevor is a 16-year-old skinhead with a fierce intellect, soured by bitter racism. As he angrily stomps from Job Centre to juvenile detention, the biggest threat to the system is that sometimes Trevor’s right. Making his screen debut, Tim Roth is astoundingly good in what’s undoubtedly one of Clarke’s finest films, written by David Leland and superbly shot on Steadicam by the brilliant Chris Menges.


Here (and above) is the trailer.
