For the first time in a generation the BFI will present a major project celebrating the historic output of one of Britain’s best loved and most influential studios with a two-month retrospective Ealing: Light and Dark in November and December 2012 at BFI Southbank.
The project will include a national re-release of Robert Hamer’s It Always Rains On Sunday (1947), now digitally re-mastered by the BFI National Archive. Part one of the season in November will focus on the darker side of Ealing including screenings of wartime dramas Next of Kin (1942) and Went the Day Well (1942); Ealing’s only venture into the horror genre Dead of Night (1945) and classic black comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) with Alec Guinness’ virtuoso turn as all seven members of the lofty, aristocratic D’Ascoyne family.
We are now giving away five pairs of tickets. To win, email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting ‘Ealing’ in the subject line. The winners will be drawn at random at midday on Friday 26 October 2012. There is no cash alternative. Film tickets subject to availability. Good luck!
