A TRIBUTE TO KEN RUSSELL (1927 – 2011)

Director Ken Russell (1927 - 2011) was one of England's most iconoclastic, provocative and visually (and aurally) stunning directors. He first made a name for himself at the BBC, where he inaugurated a series of unconventional biopics of composers - a form he would continue to explore on the big screen. His breakthrough came in 1969 with the feature film adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's WOMEN IN LOVE, a taboo-shattering classic that garnered Russell an Oscar nomination. From that point on he embarked on one audacious masterpiece after another, including a rock opera with The Who (TOMMY), a science fiction head trip (ALTERED STATES) and more unorthodox treatments of composers' lives (THE MUSIC LOVERS, LISZTOMANIA, MAHLER).

Join us at the Cinematheque for a tribute to the work of Ken Russell, including the beloved yet controversial horror film THE DEVILS.
