Join our Reader in Residence Andy Miller and Durham University’s Professor Stephen Regan who will introduce a special screening of Kes, directed by Ken Loach. Andy and Stephen are both huge fans of the film and will talk about what it means to them 47 years after it was made.
Adapted from Barry Hines’ modern classic A Kestrel for a Knave, Kes is the story of Barnsley teenager Billy Casper, whose bleak existence is transformed when he begins training a kestrel he finds on a nearby farm.
Barry Hines’s brother, Richard, the original inspiration for A Kestrel for a Knave, will be appearing at the festival on 15 October.
