Director Clive Donner's 1962 film Some People presents a fantastic and little-known early example of British 'New Wave' cinema, filmed in Eastmancolor and shot entirely on location in Bristol. The film, which starred Kenneth More, Ray Brooks, David Hemmings and Anneke Wills, also featured a soundtrack that promoted local musicians and remained in the UK album chart for weeks.

Some People was both a critical and commercial success upon its release but since then it has disappeared from public view. As Bristol celebrates its recent status as UNESCO City of Film, come and rediscover this colourful and vibrant film that remains an important snapshot of everyday life for young people growing up in Bristol in the 1960s.

Please note: This ticket is for the film screening only. The panel discussion and Q&A in Waterside 3 after the screening is SOLD OUT.

This screening is hosted as part of the AHRC-funded project The Eastmancolor Revolution and British Cinema 1955-1985 between the Universities of Bristol and East Anglia.
