“So British!” in the Filmoteca

Michael Winterbottom will attend the programme dedicated to British film on the 19th of March

Alfred Hitchcock, James Ivory, David Lean and Michael Winterbottom are just a few of the illustrious names that make up the history of British cinema, a genre in its own right that has often become blurred due to its sharing a language with Hollywood, with which it has also co-produced films on many an occasion.

With this in mind, from the 18th of March to the 30th of April the Filmoteca de Catalunya is hosting a series of UK productions entitled So British!, which includes the very best in British cinema from the late 1920s to the present day and which will feature social realism, documentary and typically British comedy as well as gothic novel, horror and fantasy film.

The programme includes films such as The Lady Vanishes (Alfred Hitchcock, 1938), A Room with a View (James Ivory, 1986), The Red Shoes (Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger, 1948), Brief Encounter (David Lean, 1946), Secrets & Lies (Mike Leigh, 1996) and In This World, a film from 2002 which will be shown on the 19th of March and which will include a presentation by its director, Michael Winterbottom.
