Ray and Liz
with Richard Ashton, Justin Salinger, Ella Smith, Michelle Bonnard, Sam Gittins, Tony Way.110 mins approx plus adverts + trailers.
Celebrated photographer Richard Billingham marks his feature debut with this raw, tender and uniquely moving cine memoir. Inspired largely by Billingham’s troubled childhood in Thatcher-era Birmingham, it depicts a dysfunctional family to powerfully demonstrate how a life lived on society’s margins can spiral irrevocably out of control. Authentic and lyrical, evocative and finely composed – in grainy 16mm frames rich with colour, texture and meaning – Ray & Liz prompts you to look and look again, and will reward both fans of Billingham’s work and newcomers to it.
