Ken Russell Weekend
Featuring 3 of his finest films, and Ken himself, on his return to Borrowdale, in conversation with Derek Malcolm.
We are delighted to welcome Ken to the Alhambra in a return to Keswick, and look forward to hearing him talk with Derek Malcolm (currently film critic of the London Evening Standard and President of the British Federation of Film Societies).
Over the weekend we will be showing Song Of Summer, The Devils and Mahler. Both Song Of Summer and Mahler were shot in Borrowdale and, in their separate ways, are typical of Ken Russell's highly-regarded skill as a filmmaker and his brilliant inventiveness and ability to capture emotion and inspiration.
Ken once described Song Of Summer as his best piece of work, and Derek Malcolm goes one further: 'The best film ever made about a composer'. Variety says of Mahler: 'It mirrors admirably, movingly and even excitingly, the moments of (musical) creation and inspiration, and the torment and basic loneliness of the artist.'
Each event priced as usual: £3 to members, £4 to non-members and free to Autumn Pass-holders.
