The Mind Benders - The Films of Basil Dearden, UK, Thursday, 23. April 2020

A five-week Lifelong Learning Dundee course by Matthew Jarron
Although hardly a household name, director and producer Basil Dearden made some of British cinema’s most extraordinary films in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Best known for powerful social dramas tackling previously taboo subjects such as racism, religious fundamentalism, juvenile delinquency and homosexuality, he also directed some much-loved comedies, most notably The League of Gentlemen.  This new course will explore the whole of Dearden’s long career to reveal one of the most significant talents in the history of British film.
