Karel Reisz was born in Czechoslovakia, where at 12 years old, he arrived in England, fleeing the clutches of Nazi Germany. He became a programmes officer at the BFI, where his work in publicity led him to join the loose-knit Free Cinema movement, experimenting with documentaries on London nightlife. His international fame was with his Alan Sillitoe adaptation ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning,’ where his body of work stretched from jazz documentaries of the 1950s; through the kitchen sink, rebellious narratives in the 1960s, and ultimately to acclaimed theatre directing in the 1990s.
Chiswick Cinema’s programme, is in close collaboration with the Reisz family.
