Wednesday the 23rd November 2022
Doors open at 6:30 pm, Talk commences at 7:00 pm

Dedicated to rediscovering cult British films that might otherwise be forgotten, the BFI’s legendary Flipside curators Will Fowler and Vic Pratt will be coming to Soho for an evening dedicated to rediscovering cult British films that might otherwise be forgotten.

This November, they will be showing Primitive London, a 1965 film offering a forbidden glimpse into the seedy side of 1960s London. Expect an exploitation film documentary on 'Swinging London' as it actually happened. Arnold Louis Miller, the director of 'Nudist Memories', interviews mods, rockers and beatniks. Wife Swapping, an overworked stripper, child birth, the killing of chickens and an interview with Billy J. Kramer also feature.

Tickets £12 - please click here to buy.
