Screening and discussion of ‘The Fishing Party’ and ‘The Home’ – Paul Watson

7th July 2019 at 7:00 pm

£3 – £5

Paul Watson studied at the Royal College of Art as a painter and has two paintings in the National collection. He then joined the RCA film making department and is credited with changing the course of observational filmmaking on British television.

His series The Family focused for the first time on a ‘working class’ household. It ran for 12 weeks and caused many viewers, newspaper critics and politicians to take against its approach to an intimate and, it is said, uncritical portrayal of the loves and attitudes of the Wilkins family. The series is now in the National Archive.

We will show two short films:

  • ‘The Fishing Party’
  • ‘The Home’

There will be an opportunity after each film to discuss the work with the filmmaker himself. Paul promises to answer any kind or concerned questions about their making!

** Please note that this meeting begins at 7pm – earlier than usual!
