Aldeburgh Cinema at 100 Talk: Britten and Film
Friday 9 August at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm£7.50
From an early age, Britten had a keen interest in the cinema and by his 20s, he was writing music to accompany documentaries and feature films. To mark the 100th birthday of Aldeburgh Cinema we look at Britten’s relationship with film, and in particular his intervention in the late 1960s to help his local cinema stay running. The talk, by Lucy Walker, includes archival footage and excerpts of Britten’s film music.
