Privilege in Birmingham
Here are a couple of lobby-cards used to promote the original release of Peter Watkins' Privilege in 1967. At the top you can see Steven Shorter's homecoming parade on New Street in Birmingham, and below the weird religious rally which closes the film, shot at Birmingham City's ground. With thanks to Oliver Groom at Project X Distribution, who were behind the recent and long-awaited DVD release of the film. Privilege will be showing on 16mm at Ikon Eastside on Sunday 15 March as part of Flatpack.
