35mm presentation - Red Riding: 1980 is the second entry in an ambitious, dark and thrilling trilogy of interlinking films set in Northern England in the 1970s and ‘80s. In 1980, the “Ripper” has tyrannized Yorkshire for six long years and with the local police failing to make any progress, the Home Office sends in Manchester officer Peter Hunter (Paddy Considine) to review the investigation. Having previously made enemies in the Yorkshire force while investigating a shooting incident in 1974, Hunter finds himself increasingly isolated when his version of events challenges their official line on the Ripper. Also starring Warren Clarke, Maxine Peake, David Morrissey and Eddie Marsan. Directed by James Marsh (Man on Wire, The King).
