35mm presentation - Red Riding: 1974 is the first entry in an ambitious, dark and thrilling trilogy of interlinking films set in Northern England in the 1970s and ‘80s. 1974 in Yorkshire is a time of paranoia, mistrust and institutionalized police corruption. Rookie journalist Eddie Dunford (Andrew Garfield, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) is determined to search for the truth in an increasingly complex maze of lies and deceit that characterizes a police investigation into a series of child abductions. Based on the true-life manhunt for the Yorkshire Ripper. Also starring Rebecca Hall, Sean Bean, David Morrissey and John Bradshaw. Directed by Julian Jarrold (Brideshead Revisited, Becoming Jane).
