Part of the House Guests: Young Fathers Season


A very Sixties portrait of rock’n’roll idolatry, mass entertainment culture and propaganda from Peter Watkins (Culloden), starring Paul Jones as a pop sensation whose fame is harnessed for church and state propaganda.

Young Fathers say: "Not because of the acting, necessarily, or even the script, but because of the look and what the film describes: a snapshot of the power of a stage, an image, a profile. How rebellion is captured and tamed. One of the most honest films about pop music."

Screening as part of House Guests: Young Fathers - a special season of films at Filmhouse programmed by Edinburgh-based Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers.
