Ethel & Ernest – A Tribute to Roger Mainwood
In this fine adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ illustrated book, we follow the lives of a couple from their marriage in the 1930s onwards.
Dir Roger Mainwood
With the voices of Brenda Blethyn, Jim Broadbent, Luke Treadaway, Pam Ferris
This animated story, told in a series of vignettes, follows the lives of Ethel and Ernest from their marriage in the 1930s onwards. Based on Raymond Briggs’ illustrated book about his own parents, it was directed by the hugely accomplished director Roger Mainwood, who sadly died in September. We hope to have some of his friends and family with us to help celebrate his career and this extraordinary work.
In this tribute to Roger Mainwood, we will also screen his 1976 short Cage (3min).
