Alan Clarke's Work Celebrated

The London Film Academy is launching Under the Influence, a series featuring the world's filmmaking talent, starting with ALAN CLARKE, described by fellow British film director as 'the best of all of us' .

To mark the 15th anniversary of his death and celebrate his work, Riverside Studios and Curzon Soho is hosting events over two weekends in July (14-17 and 21-24).

Under the Influence - Alan Clarke examines his most significant work through a series of masterclasses and panel discussions with many of his colleagues and collaborators, filmmakers and actors alike including: producer Sandy Lieberson and Lesley Sharp, who worked with Clarke on Rita, Sue and Bob Too; Corin Campbell Hill (director and Clarke's First AD; writer David Rudkin (Penda's Fen); Vertigo magazine editor, Gareth Evans; director/writer/actor David Leland; Margaret Matheson (producer of Scum); actress Lesley Manville (The Firm) and actor Ray Winstone.

For those of you too young to remember Alan Clarke, this is a chance to catch up with the work of one of the most exciting, and visceral directors Britain has produced. David Hare described Clarke as a 'profoundly anti-establishment artist, that's his stance, and that's his glory'
