Red Shift  (John Mackenzie  |  UK  |  1978  |  PG)

An adaptation of Alan Garner’s novel, ‘Red Shift’ explores uncanny resonances between three different time periods in English history: following a group of Roman invaders in the 2nd century, a siege during the English Civil War, and the story of young lovers in the present day. Based on the ballad of Tam Lin, ‘Red Shift’ tells three separate stories which all converge around Mow Cop castle in Cheshire.

This screening featured a special mini-concert from celebrated folk musician Alastair Roberts.
