Welcome to your neighbourhood film school, a new series of hosted screenings exploring film history and introducing current debates in cinema culture. Fill in the gaps in your film knowledge and join the conversation.

Glasgow 1973 is the stark setting for the unforgettable debut feature by writer-director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin, You Were Never Really Here). Our guide through this troubled landscape is James, a 12-year-old boy wrestling with guilt following the death of a neighbour and watching as his rundown council estate fills with rubbish due to the ongoing binmens’ strike. Winner of the Best Newcomer award at the BAFTAs and the Sutherland Award at the London Film Festival, Ramsay’s film remains one of the most memorable debuts in British cinema.
The film will be introduced by author and film critic Tom Huddleston.
