The Jewish Influence on the British Film Industry

Watershed

Sunday 24 March

15.00-17.30

Andrew Spicer will open the event by giving an overview of how Jewish exhibitors, distributors and producers have shaped the evolution of the British film industry from its beginnings to the present.

This will be followed by a screening of The Man Who Got Carter, a feature length documentary about the career of an influential Jewish producer, Michael Klinger, made by his son Tony who will introduce the film and lead a Q&A after the screening.

Michael Klinger is best known as the producer of Get Carter but he also helped Polanski make his first two English-language feature films, Repulsion and Cul-de-Sac and went on to produce single-handedly action adventure films such as Gold and

Shout at the Devil. The film offers a fascinating glimpse into the working life of a courageous and enlightened producer who produced over 30 feature films.

UWE staff and students are entitled to the concessionary rate of £5.00.

The event is part of Jewish History Month.
