Django Rides Again at Leeds International Film Festival

In conjunction with the 26th Leeds International Film Festival, Lee Broughton has programmed - and will introduce - a double bill of 'Django' films.
Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western 'Django Unchained' takes its main inspiration from a popular sub-cycle of Italian Westerns from the 1960s and 1970s that featured a variety of gunmen called 'Django'.  Since worldwide interest in these particular 'Spaghetti Westerns' is currently running high, Lee has programmed a double bill of two classic 'Django' films as part of the Leeds International Film Festival's 'Fanomenon' strand.
'Django' (Sergio Corbucci, Italy/Spain, 1966) and 'Django Kill!' ('Se sei vivo spara', Giulio Questi, Italy/Spain, 1967) will screen at the Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds on Tuesday 6th November. 
'Django' begins at 14:15
'Django Kill!' begins at 16:00
