APRIL 2018 at BFI Southbank

From Monday  2  April – Monday  30  April, BFI  Southbank will  celebrate  one  of  the  undisputed  masters  of  cinema, Sergio  Leone.  While  they  may  not  have  been  the  first  spaghetti  westerns,  Leone's  Dollars  trilogy  of A  Fistful  of Dollars (1964), For  a  Few Dollars  More (1965)  and The  Good,  the  Bad  and  the  Ugly (1966)  are  certainly  the  best
known – they  paved  the  way  for  Clint  Eastwood  to  break  Europe  and  for  Leone  to  have  an  enduring  influence  on cinema.  As  part of  the  season, A  Fistful  of  Dollars will  screen  on  extended  run from Friday 13 April,  when  it  is  re-released in selected cinemas by Park Circus. The season will include screenings of all of Leone’s features, as well as a talk from Leone biographer Sir Christopher Frayling on Friday 6 April.

Schedule of events:
FRI 6 APR, 18:00 – TALK: Sir Christopher Frayling on Sergio Leone’s Very Italian Western
FRI 6 APR, 19:50 – SCREENING – INTRO: Once Upon a Time in the West (Sergio Leone
