October 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Pl
London, WC2H 7BY United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Join Geoff Dyer for a hilarious scene-by-scene commentary of cult classic Second World War film Where Eagles Dare. With its historical inaccuracies, camp SS officers and inexplicable plot twists, starring a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a coolly anachronistic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. ‘Broadsword Calling Danny Boy’ is Geoff Dyer’s tribute to the film he has loved since childhood: a scene-by-scene analysis taking us from its snowy,…

He was able to capture bizarre and sometimes implausible configurations…

Garry Winogrand was one of the most important photographers of the 1960’s and 1970’s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers whose images capture a bygone era: the New York of Mad Men and the early years of the Women’s Movement, the birth of American suburbs, and the glamour and alienation of Hollywood.
