Karel Reisz, director of the classic 1958 film We Are the Lambeth Boys, was the founder of the Free Cinema movement in Great Britain, but he had only come here as the last child accepted onto the Kindertransport from Czechoslovakia in 1938. Through interviews with family members, collaborators, and friends, the film paints a definitive portrait of one of the founders of cinematic realism in the UK. The life of a famously kind, generous, and charming patron of all those who passed through his family’s doors celebrated in fitting form.

Panel discussion with Petra Všelichová (Director), Jarmila Hoznaeuerova (Producer) & Stephen Frears. Organised in collaboration with the Czech Centre London and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in London.

Organised in collaboration with the Czech Centre London and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in London. Followed by a drinks reception supported by Staropramen for ticket holders only.
