Together with Lorenza Mazzetti + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Together with Lorenza Mazzetti, dir. Brighid Lowe, UK 2023, 55 min.

Lorenza Mazzetti (1927—2020) was a rare example of a female filmmaker from the 1950s, a co-founder of the influential Free Cinema movement in the UK; and a Cannes Film Festival prize winner. Yet during her lifetime Mazzetti was often overshadowed by her male contemporaries in the Free Cinema movement, and her work was bracketed with the 'kitchen sink' school of British realism.

The British Academy-funded film Together with Lorenza Mazzetti intends to rectify this, reconnecting her work with the European modernist tradition. Made through a collaboration between artist Brighid Lowe and a film historian Henry K. Miller, the film reevaluates her cultural significance. Based on recorded interviews, it also features extracts of her film The Country Doctor (1953), which was long thought lost. An incredible discovery, Mazzetti talks publicly about it for the first and only time. 

Followed by a Q&A between director Brighid Lowe and film historian Henry K. Miller.
This event is part of the British Academy Summer Showcase Late programme, taking place at neighbouring 10-11 Carlton House Terrace 5-8pm. Featuring exhibits, talks and performances, you’re welcome to come along for free before the screening.
