British Cinema Breaking With Convention

This event looked in depth at a number of British works in the festival which have adopted original or inventive form and narrative structure, often blurring fiction and fact. Chaired by Jonathan Romney, the participants included Clio Barnard (The Arbor), Patrick Keiller (Robinson in Ruins) John Akomfrah (The Nine Muses) and Sam Rumbelow, acting coach and participant in Gillian Wearing's Self Made.
