Free to attend – All welcome!
On Wednesday 18 February there will be a special screening of Don Boyd’s documentary ‘Andrew and Jeremy Get Married’, which was nominated for the British Independent Film Award for Best British Documentary. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
The documentary documents a year in the life of two gay men from radically different backgrounds and was originally released in cinemas and as part of the BBC’s Storyville series.
Described by Alexander Walker as a ‘one-man film industry’, Don Boyd has significantly influenced the face of British film since his first feature in the mid-1970s. Moving from his initial role of director, his ‘art form’, Boyd became producer of Scum, The Great Rock and Roll Swindle and many of Derek Jarman’s films. Boyd successfully built his own production company, a bastion for young British talent during the arid climate of seventies British cinema.
