D H Lawrence and Ken Russell, two unlikely avatars of the 1960s sexual revolution, join forces to cast Alan Bates and Oliver Reed in the greatest nude wrestling scene of all time. The word ‘maverick’ just about begins to describe Women in Love – and wonderful Glenda Jackson walked off with an Oscar. 



Friday Night Films

Selected by Gareth Jones to accompany his exhibition at MK Gallery, this film programme unites a group of maverick British directors, artists and cultural icons, including Christopher Isherwood, Derek Jarman, David Bowie, Glenda Jackson and Lindsay Anderson. Spanning the years 1944 - 1994, the season covers a fifty-year period that sees the emergence of the Welfare State, the birth of Milton Keynes and the eventual dominance of neo-liberalism as an economic philosophy. Ideas around the English landscape, the life of the artist and the social revolutions of the 1960s, move in and out of focus. 



Independent Cinema MK and MK Gallery are working in collaboration to create a programme of Friday Night film screenings selected or curated by artists and connected to MK Gallery current exhibitions.
