54th BFI London Film Festival Vodcast Day 8

On day 8 of the festival we looked at a range of British films and filmmakers. At BFI Southbank, the Breaking with Convention event featured key British talent discussing their use of form. Documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto also presented her latest work Pink Saris, which focuses on a group of Indian female vigilantes as well as the women that turn to them in desperation. The Archive Gala featured The Great White Silence by Herbert Ponting, comprised of haunting footage from Captain Scott's legendary and ill fated expedition to the South Pole with the score performed live by composer Simon Fisher Turner, as well as the Elysian Quartet, David Coulter and Alexander L'Estrange. The evening ended with the Time Out Special Screening of Peter Mullan's Neds, a powerful drama which looks at growing up in 1970's Glasgow.
