T Dan Smith

Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season


The Amber Collective return to the Folk Film Gathering to present T Dan Smith, an experimental biopic of the infamous Newcastle City Council leader - a visionary, flawed and controversial politician, convicted of corruption in 1974. Showcasing the verve, wit and social commitment that has made Amber one of the most significant forces in British cinema over the past 40 years, T Dan Smith is a compelling fusion of drama and documentary, in which T Dan plays himself.


The screening will be introduced with live folk songs from Sean Paul Newman, and followed by a Q&A with Amber’s Ellin Hare, Peter Roberts, and Sirkka-Liisa Kontinnen. Presented in partnership with Bella Caledonia.
