The Q&A will take place ahead of a FREE screening of Cathy Come Home that day, and will feature as part of the IFI’s two-month celebration of the work of a director who has consistently and courageously taken on issues of social injustice both in film and on television.

The retrospective will feature rare work, including the previously suppressed The Save the Children Fund Film (1969), including Up the Junction, Poor Cow, Kes, Family Life, Black Jack, The Gamekeeper, Which Side Are You On?, Looks and Smiles, Hidden Agenda (with short Time to Go), Riff-Raff, Raining Stones and Ladybird Ladybird in Part One.

Part One will run from May 3rd to 28th. Part Two will be announced in the IFI June Programme.
