Don't miss one-off screening of Whistle Down the Wind at the BFI
Bryan Forbes’s directorial debut – Whistle Down the Wind (1960)- is one of his best-loved films: a wonderfully evocative portrait of the innocence of childhood seen through the eyes of three Yorkshire children. An escaped and injured man (Alan Bates in a breakthough role) is discovered hiding in their barn. The children believe that the man is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, and events take on a strange and compelling momentum.
Bryan Forbes will be awarded a BFI Fellowship Award after the screening.
