Drifters U



Sat 16 Oct, 5pm


As part of the 4th Yorkshire Silent Film Festival

Working through the night in the churning North Sea, the lives of 1920s herring fisherman are brought dramatically to the screen in this ground-breaking silent documentary. Drifters premiered in 1929 in a double-bill with Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin – director John Grierson was strongly influenced by Eisenstein’s powerful use of film editing. This screening will be accompanied by a new, spontaneously improvised score created by the young musicians of East Leeds-based Chapel FM Jazz Collective.

Yorkshire Silent Film Festival presents an annual festival and a year-round programme of live-scored film across Yorkshire.
