Film director Martin Scorsese has described 1941 film The Next of Kin as a “fascinating picture” for the “degree to which it sticks to its guns just following the procedures and the transmission of information. It sticks so closely to its purpose, following the information and showing the effects of leaks”.

 

On Tuesday 14th of March we are holding a screening of the Next of Kin  preceded by a short introduction by Gareth Thompson of LCC who will present a summary of a recently published paper on the film based on archival research in the Thorold Dickinson Collection at UAL Archives and Special Collections Centre. Archives staff will be on hand before and after the screening to introduce and show historical documents relating to the film.
