Set in a Glasgow tenement block in the 1970s, against a backdrop of rubbish accumulating during a binmen’s strike, the film follows twelve-year-old James Gillespie as tragedy causes him to withdraw from his family.

Following this screening we will be joined by three-time Oscar nominee Rachel Portman, one of the UK’s most successful screen composers to discuss her evocative music for Lynne Ramsay’s Ratcatcher. The event will be moderated by Oscar-nominated composer for Mr. Turner, Gary Yershon, and is brought to you in association with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

UK 1999, directed by Lynne Ramsay, 94 minutes
