The first film in Anderson and screenwriter David Sherwin’s great state-of-the-nation trilogy builds tensely to violent rebellion, as schoolboy Mick Travis takes a stand against the brutality and repressive traditions that govern an English boarding school. Fierce in its satirising of class-bound, outdated conventions in British society, it is also deeply poetic and fantastical. It captured the late-60s zeitgeist like few others, taking the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

We will have a brief intro of our recently refurbished auditorium before screening Lindsay Anderson’s fierce satire. Please book the Members’ exclusive “film with drinks” ticket to join the Membership team post-screening in Benugo.
