Bronco Bullfrog + Q&A

1960's classic Bronco Bullfrog, now digitally restored, hits cinemas nationwide this summer. A leading cult film of the 1960s and one of the finest records of Mod culture in British cinema, Bronco Bullfrog was largely improvised by a non-professional cast of teenagers from Stratford, East London, and is loosely based on events taken from the actors' lives. Following a screening at BFI Southbank, director Barney Platts-Mills provides fascinating insight into the film in a discussion chaired by Jason Solomons. Here the director talks about his experiences, most notably with theatre director Joan Littlewood, describing the impact she had upon his work, the acting profession, and on the young non-professional cast.
