Lecture Plymouth: The Cook the Thief

  • The House Plymouth England (map)

Peter Greenaway - Plymouth University

Part of the Plymouth Festival of Words

"Peter Greenaway is one of England’s true auteurs, and since 1965, his films have delighted, challenged and stunned cinema-goers.

With remarkable works such as The Draughtsman's Contract (1982), Prospero's Books (1991) and The Baby of Mâcon (1993), Greenaway remains a vital voice in today’s sometimes staid and unadventurous approach to the medium.

In this talk, Peter Greenaway reflects on the making of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover chaired by Johnny Mains, award-winning editor, author and curator for several Peninsula Arts film series".
