Our season this month takes a literary slant with a focus on the writer Graham Greene, whose work inspired some of the greatest films of the 20th century and, with a new adaptation of Brighton Rock due out, continues to be relevant to this generation of filmmakers. Greene on the Screen is a chance for us to bring you some simply great films during January.
Talking of great films, when asked to choose the film he would most like to show as part of the IFI Open Day last February, Peter Walsh, IFI Cinemas Manager, chose Make Way for Tomorrow. We could only fit 60 people into that single screening last February – all of whom were in agreement with Peter having seen the film – so we are delighted that its recent re-release means that more of you can enjoy it during January. It is, by all accounts, not to be missed!
We hope you enjoy this month’s programme (you can view it all here) and that you find plenty here to distract you from the January blues!
