In conversation with Peter Greenaway
  • The House, Plymouth University

Save event

Peter Greenaway is one of England’s true auteurs, and since 1965, his films have delighted, challenged and stunned cinema-goers.

With remarkable works such as The Draughtsman's Contract (1982), Prospero's Books (1991) and The Baby of Mâcon (1993), Greenaway remains a vital voice in today’s sometimes staid and unadventurous approach to the medium.

In this talk, Peter Greenaway reflects on the making of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover chaired by Johnny Mains, award-winning editor, author and curator for several Peninsula Arts film series. 

Date: Friday 5 May
Time: 18:30
Venue: The House
Ticket information: £6/£4.20. Free to Plymouth University students via SPiA

Please note, this talk is not suitable for those under the age of 18.
