The Draughtsman's Contract (1982)

Dir: Peter Greenaway (Certificate 15, 103 minutes)

Friday 17 June / 6.30pm / Tickets £5 (concessions £3)

Peter Greenaway’s baroque 17th century masterpiece revels in a conceptual symmetry more commonly seen in visual art.  A murder mystery, a love-letter to the English landscape tradition, and a cold analysis of the relationship between artist and patron. Michael Nyman’s musical score plays a starring role.

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.
