Little Dorrit + Q&A

Following a screening of the epic 1988 adaptation of Little Dorrit, programmed as part of the BFI's three-month tribute to Charles Dickens, director Christine Edzard, editor Olivier Stockman and Sir Derek Jacobi (Arthur Clennam in the film) reminisce about the making of the six-hour feature.

Each offers their memories, not all of them complimentary, of Sarah Pickering, the young girl who played Dorrit as a child, while Edzard explains how her film reflected the contemporary concerns of 80s Britain, despite being set over a century in the past.
