Madonna and Child 1980
30 mins United Kingdom Director. Terence Davies
The second instalment of Terence Davies' masterful Trilogy finds Robert Tucker in middle age, with the clash of religion and sexuality taking its toll. A depressed loner who takes the ferry across the Mersey to work as an office clerk, Robert is haunted by nightmares of his own death and tormented by largely unfulfilled homosexual fantasies, his only consolation the companionship of his mother.
Madonna and Child was produced at the National Film School as Davies' graduation film.
Restoration supported by Simon W. Hessel
