Barry Lyndon

(40th anniversary screening, presented on 35mm archive print, with special guests Richard Ayoade, Jan Harlan and Maria Pramaggiore)

ICA London, 19 December 2015

Winner of four Oscars for 1975, including Best Cinematography, we were delighted to close out 2015 with a 40th anniversary screening of Stanley Kubrick’s painterly, sardonic masterpiece. This was an incredibly rare chance to see the movie from a 35mm archive print.

Based on William Thackeray’s novel about the rise and fall of an 18th Century Irish rogue (Ryan O’Neal), Barry Lyndon features breathtaking, technically revolutionary candlelit visuals that recall the paintings of Hogarth and Gainsborough, vividly realising an epic world of beauty, deceit and poetic justice.

After the film we welcomed a very special panel to discuss it, including Kubrick collaborator Jan Harlan, cinema scholar Maria Pramaggiore and filmmaker Richard Ayoade
