Free cinema : a compilation [video ]

Free Cinema consisted of a group of young film-makers who decided to rebel against the stifling, stuffy conformity of British cinema in the late fifties and to make their own films outside the confines of 'the system'. This video is a compilation of three short films about British working class life in which directors express their personal viewpoints without obligation to subscribe to the technical or social conventions imposed on commercial film-making.

  • ""A highly influential but critically-neglected movement in British cinema history, Free Cinema not only re-invented British documentary in the 1950s but also served as a precursor for the better known British New Wave of social-realist feature films in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Born in February 1956, when a group, led by critic and filmmaker Lindsay Anderson, screened their short films at the National Film Theatre, Free Cinema proved so popular that five more programmes followed until 1959, featuring films by young British and foreign filmmakers. The BFI has brought together, for the first time, the eleven films of the three British programmes in this 3-disc box set. This definitive collection includes a number of fascinating shorts made on a shoestring budget" -- Container."

  • "Free Cinema was not a movement so much as a group of young filmmakers (including Lindsay Anderson, Tony Richardson and Karel Reisz) reacting against the hidebound class consciousness of the British cinema by working outside the dictates of the industry although not entirely without its support. While inevitably portraying working class life from a middle class perspective which was not always free from left-wing sentimentality, 'Free Cinema' filmmakers did turn their cameras on previously ignored (on film) areas of British life. Every Day Except Christmas (1957) is a lyrical, implicitly idealistic, portrayal of working class community at the Covent Garden Market. We Are the Lambeth Boys (1959) tries to get close to working class youth culture. The Saturday Men (1959) is the portrait of a football club."@en

  • "A collection of films from the groundbreaking 'Free Cinema' movement, the term coined by Lindsay Anderson in 1956. The films were 'free' in the sense that they were made outside the framework of the film industry, and that their statements were personal. These films had in common the conditions of their production (very low budget, unpaid crew) and the equipment they employed (hand-held 16mm cameras) but also a style and attitude. Mostly funded by the British Film Institute's Experimental Film Fund, they featured ordinary, mostly working-class people at work and play, displaying a rare sympathy and respect, and a self-consciously poetic style. They also shared an experimental approach to sound, avoiding narration and imaginatively counterpointing sound and image. The collection contains the films O Dreamland (Anderson, 1953), Momma Don't Allow (Reisz & Richardson, 1955), Together (Mazzetti, 1956), Wakefield Express (Anderson, 1952), Nice Time (Tanner & Goretta, 1957), The Singing Street (McIsaac, 1952), Everyday Except Christmas (Anderson, 1957), Refuge England (Vas,1959), Enginemen (Grigsby, 1959), We Are The Lambeth Boys (Reisz, 1959), Food For A Blush (Russell, 1955), One Potato, Two Potato, The Vanishing Street, Tomorrow's Saturday, Gala Day and March To Aldermaston. The Gala Day Notes from the original 1956 free cinema programme state the following: No film can be too personal. The image speaks. Sounds amplifies and comments. Size is irrelevant. Perfection is not an aim. An attitude means a style. A style means an attitude."
