Film: Clive King's arthouse choice
PROVING THAT documentary is still a vibrant and exciting field, Britain's
premier celebration of the non-fiction film has hit the road with
a selection of entertaining and informative highlights from this year's
sell-out (Sheffield International Film Festival) festival. Stops on
the tour include the Watershed in Bristol, the Glasgow Film Theatre,
The Barn in Dartington, Manchester's Cornerhouse, Phoenix Arts in
Leicester and an additional expanded programme hosted by the National
Film Theatre in London.
THE DIRECTOR James Ronald Whitney won glowing notices for this frank
account of the pain and degradation wrought on his family by his sexually
abusive grandfather. Despite the subject matter the film has flashes
of dark humour and moments of real warmth.
Various venues nationwide until Feb 11. For information call 0114-276
