By the 1960s, Social Realist Cinema had expanded out from Italy and France to the UK. The “angry young men” and “kitchen sink” films by directors such as Karel Reisz, Lindsay Anderson and Bryan Forbes paved the way for a new genre of British film. The focus of these films is on the reality of life for ordinary people, as well as the everyday dramas and stories to be found in the cities and towns from north to south. Taking a critical look at a variety of films since the British New Wave, this compelling course is a study as much about people as it is about film.
