We had a great time at the opening night of Onwards and Outwards, a programme of films by women filmmakers from the last 50 years. Following an opening reception, we screened Carol Morley's The Alcohol Years. In the film, Morley encounters various characters from her past, artfully weaving together their stories to create a candid portrait of her time in 1980s Manchester. Following the screening Kate Muir, chief film critic at The Times, hosted a fantastic Q&A with the director. At the end of the evening, Morley signed copies of her new book 7 Miles Out.
We are grateful to everyone who made the evening such a success! ■
