We are pleased to announce an exciting upcoming event at the BFI Southbank Theatre in London. This unique screening celebrates the newly remastered version of the film '36 to '77, a portrait of Myrtle Wardally, a cleaner involved in the Nightcleaners’ strike in the summer of 1973, as she reflects on her life before the strike and the impact that it made on her after. The screening is in anticipation of the fall DVD and Blu-ray launch by Raven Row and the publication of a new book of essays and source documents covering the two films.
Produced by the Berwick Street Film Collective (a collaboration of Marc Karlin, John Sanders, James Scott, Humphry Trevelyan), the title ‘36 to '77 reflects the year of birth of Myrtle Wardally, and the year in which the portrait was made.
James Scott together with Humphry Trevelyan and Jon Sanders will be present at the screening on July 5th with moderator Laura Mulvey.
