They beat him. They deprived him. They ridiculed him. They broke his heart. But they couldn’t break his spirit.
Following the success of the Kes screening in June, we have organised another special 50th anniversary screening of Kes at Hasland Working Men’s Club to celebrate the film’s release in 1969.
David Bradley, AKA Billy Casper, will be attending the event! There will be a brief Q&A before David introduces the film. Following the film, why not purchase some special Kes merchandise such as a signed print or t-shirt?
Taking place on Friday 25th October, doors open at 7pm and the film begins at 8pm.
“The story of Billy Casper is a simple one; a young boy from a working class background whose life prospects are minimal. A latch key kid, bullied at school, misunderstood and a loner as a consequence, who finds a kestrel chick and against the odds rears and trains her like a falconer.” -David Bradley
