Friday 24th August 2001, 7:30pm to Midnight
Included the long-awaited premieres of the short films:
BROTH by John Hardwick & Spunkflakes
2001, United Kingdom, 18 minutes.
Starring Shaun McDermott, Paul Neesham, Dan Salmon, Anne Brassier, Christine Marshall, Rachael Harrison, John Coleman, Lisa Ratner, Will Kittow & Ray Row Farr Adams.
The first short film from the Spunkflakes, Broth tells the story of a young faggot called Neville who wears his kegs so far up his arse it restricts his sexuality. On his journey to Nana's he takes a ride in a council lift which, through a series of chance encounters, triggers memories of a trauma he thought had been left behind.
FAMILY by Spunkflakes
2001, United Kingdom, 8 minutes.
Starring Shaun McDermott, Paul Neesham & Dan Salmon.
Daddy loves his daughter like nobody else can, but a finger of fudge later and Mommie Dearest has headed for the axe. A camp, bloody, mess of a film, which offers an alternative view of the 'nuclear' family.
A TASTE OF HONEY by Tony Richardson
1961, United Kingdom, 100 minutes.
Starring Rita TushinghamStarring Rita Tushingham, Dora Bryan, Robert Stephens, David Boliver, Paul Danquah & Murray Melvin.
This film created such a stir upon its release that it almost killed the careers of everyone involved. Rita Tushingham shines as a naive, working class, white Salford teenager who find herself pregnant by a black sailor. Her slatternly mother, Dora Bryan, kicks her out and she's forced to take refuge with Geoffrey, a gay workmate with just as many troubles. These two unlikely 'parents' set up a house with the new baby, only to have Mum turn up ready to assert her rights as grandmother. This is post-war England encapsulated to perfection in melancholy masterpiece of kitchen-sink cinema.
"A ground-making movie of its time."
Radio Times, 5 Stars
"A taboo-breaking 60s tale."
