Glasgow Film Festival, 2014: Looking for Light: Jane Bown, GFT, 26/27 February


Looking for Light: Jane Bown

Glasgow Film Centre, 12 Rose Sreet.

Wednesday 26–Thursday 27 February
Since her first black and white portrait of Bertrand Russell in 1949, celebrated photographer Jane Bown has captured everyone from Orson Welles and John Lennon to Margaret Thatcher and Queen Elizabeth II (for her 80th birthday), and has gained immense critical acclaim along the way. Her photos have become iconic definitions of many of the great and the good (and a few bad) characters from throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this all-new documentary from Luke Dodd and Michael Whyte, we see her outstanding determination to succeed in an almost exclusively male world, along with the evolution of her working process. With exclusive interviews from fellow photographers Rankin, Nobby Clark and Don McCullin, Looking for Light is a stunning portrait of one of the most important photographers of modern times.

Director Michael Whyte will attend the screening on Wednesday 26 February (13.15). UK premiere.
