THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY + Q&A with producer Barry Hanson / bar & food from 6pm / film at 8pm / £5 / click on the image to book.
The Long Good Friday (John MacKenzie, UK, 1980) ”No other city has in its centre such an opportunity for profitable progress; acre after acre and mile after mile of land for future developments” (Harold Shand). This film amazingly predicts the wastelands of East London as a site for the future Olympic Games (although the film shows a pre-Canary Wharf docklands, as opposed to Stratford). Bob Hoskins’ gangster Harold Shand, alongside his moll played by Helen Mirren, attempts to go legit by bringing in American investors to develop the derelict areas of London’s docks. But things don’t quite go to plan… Producer Barry Hanson will be in attendance alongside special Olympic guests to discuss issues raised in the film.
