Mike Leigh Season
A British auteur and a BFI Fellow, Mike Leigh is one of the UK’s greatest filmmakers. He makes films on his terms; shrouding his rehearsal process, shooting in secrecy and working with the best talent the UK can provide, both in front of and behind the camera.
His films are a testament to the power of cinema, fusing comedy with tragedy and the personal with the universal, bringing stories of ordinary working-class people to the screen with honesty and empathy.
Dir. Mike Leigh
