How Does It Feel? - A Life of Musical Misadventures


Mark Kermode recounts his utterly foolhardy attempts to fulfil his dreams of becoming a pop star -from building an electric guitar from scratch while at school, to playing tea-chest bass on the kids TV show Utterly Brilliant, to becoming the musical director of a major TV show - all without ever learning to read music. This will be a hilarious evening in which the film critic recalls falling in love with Slade as a teenager, forming his first proper band, and recording an album at Sun Studio as an ageing old ted. Mark will be signing copies of his book after the show. Event duration includes a 20 minute intermission.

Total Running Time: 1hr 50mins (excluding book signing).

This event is part of the Cinemagic Film Festival and QFT50.

Times Tuesday 23rd October: 10:00am

The UK Prime Minister Harold Macmillan might have said in 1957 that most of the British public had never had it so good, but along came a film movement in the late fifties and early sixties, ‘Kitchen Sink Realism’, that happened to think otherwise. The characters in these films tended to be angry young men (and occasionally women) who wanted a better life. Set mainly in the north of England, the films gave a voice to the usually silent, called into question class assumptions and created a new generation of directors and stars in films including Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Look Back in Anger, Room at the Top and A Kind of Loving.

Tony McKibbin writes for newspapers and magazines worldwide. He teaches Lifelong Learning classes in film, and also in literature, at the University of Edinburgh. His work can be found in periodicals and journals including The List, Senses of Cinema, the Edinburgh Review, Experimental Conversations, Last Tapes and Studies in French Cinema.

Amberson (Alex Lawther) may be awkward at sports, but his imagination comes to the fore when he helps the handsome school hero Winchester, who is more lad than poet, pursue Agnes, the daughter of the visiting French teacher, despite being enamoured with her himself.
