The second feature in a series of early classics that turned Vanessa Redgrave into a leading film actress. In the role that made him one of the faces of Swinging London, David Hemmings stars as Thomas, an aimless fashion photographer gripped with a new sense of purpose when he takes a photograph of an enigmatic woman (Vanessa Redgrave) and her lover in a park. Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1967.

This screening forms part of Vanessa Redgrave on Screen - The 1960s set the tone for the whole of Vanessa Redgrave’s screen career with a series of key roles in seminal films that reflected and expressed an era of social and cultural transformation.
