PRIVATE ROAD (12) plus Q&A, 89 mins 1971 Dir Barney Platts Mills, starring Bruce Robinson & Susan Penhaligon.
Private Road is undoubtedly one of the great lost British masterpieces. On this film’s initial release, Platts-Mills was forced to hire a cinema to show his film only to then witness its effective disappearance for almost 40 years. This wistful and wilful film now looks like a template for the new British realist cinema. Pop-Up Finale. A special Q&A with director Barney Platts Mills follows the screening.
