Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Celebrate a near-century of British cinema with mashups, murders, and more

Australia’s fondness for the Mother Country is undeniable: large chunks of the population still become red-faced and furious at the word ‘republic’, and it took us an embarrassingly long time to admit the US version of The Office was pretty great, too. Following on from London’s Olympics, GREAT Britain Arts 13 is a celebration of British culture – including a season of more than 30 movies for Melbourne.

ACMI’s screenings opened with Julien Temple’s London: The Modern Babylon. It’s like a fever dream of the city, wittily composed of found footage and a perfect soundtrack. Later in the year, there’s everything from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Ring (1927) to Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s wartime fantasy A Matter of Life and Death (1946) to the London riots-inspired drama Ill Manors (2012).
