A round-up of the opening night of Onwards and Outwards, featuring a screening of The Alcohol Years and a Q&A with director Carol Morley.
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! ■
Onwards and Outwards runs 1-10 September at the ICA and until the end of December at nationwide venues.
Carol Morley's The Alcohol Years will screen at HOME in Manchester on 15 September and will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
