Screening of Andrew and Jeremy Get Married.
A special screening of Don Boyd’s documentary Andrew and Jeremy Get Married which was nominated for the British Independent Film Award for best British Documentary, at 5pm in the Cordingley theatre, Humanities Bridgeford Street Building on Wednesday February the 18th. The screening will have a Q+A with the director himself Don Boyd.
The documentary documents a year in the life of two gay men from radically different backgrounds and was originally released in cinemas and as part of the BBC’s Storyville Series.
Described by Alexander Walker as “a one-man film industry” Don Boyd has significantly influenced the face of British film since his first feature in the mid-1970s. Moving from his initial role of director; his ‘art form’, Boyd successfully built his own production company; a bastion for young British talent during the arid climate of ’70s British cinema. With a prolific production resumé during the late 1970s and 1980s, the 1990s and 2000s that stretches from Scum and The Great Rock and Roll Swindle to many of Derek Jarman’s films and his current collaborations with Mark Cousins.
Don will also hold a workshop for the students of our Master in Visual Anthropology on the following morning.
