Overview

Aimed explicitly at those coming to British cinema for the first time - either as student or teacher - and assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, the Studying British Cinema series considers key texts from the decade under discussion and accessibly places them in their artistic and historical contexts.

Using key film texts as its starting point, Studying British Cinema: The 1960s analyses this famously revolutionary decade, and examines how the films of the day reflected the inward battle of the nation. Danny Powell examines differing representations of time and place making sense of the complexities of a changing nation, highlighting cinematic changes in style and outlook that were crucial in communicating, evaluating and constructing British identity in this famous decade, exporting a unified image to the rest of the world, and how this period continues to define Britain today.

Key films discussed include:

Peeping Tom

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

Billy Liar

A Hard Day's Night

Goldfinger

The Ipcress File

Darling

The Knack... and How to Get It

Blow Up

If...

The Italian Job
