A dark, intimate follow up to The Red Shoes, The Small Back Room reunites David Farrar and Kathleen Byron from Black Narcissus as an alcoholic bomb disposal expert and his long-suffering colleague and lover. The film perfectly captures the look and mood of postwar London, and was pioneering in its portrayal of a condition yet to be understood as posttraumatic stress disorder.
The screening will be followed by a live onstage panel hosted by the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy.
Duration includes trailers and adverts. Please note that we do not admit latecomers after the main feature has started and we have a limited food & drink policy.
