HOME, Manchester to host ‘States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s’ film season

As part of the BFI’s major nationwide season of thrillers – Who Can You Trust?HOME, Manchester will present States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s, a season of nail-biting thrillers that expose the political tensions that reverberated across Europe in the 1970s.

Beginning with Costa-Gavras’ legendary Z (1969), States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s offers audiences the chance to discover or revisit some of the decade’s key works including: The Long Good Friday (1980), Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970), The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum (1975) and The Day of the Jackal (1973), films that still influence the way in which politically engaged filmmakers approach their work and engage with popular forms and genres.

Angela Winkler will also give an on-stage Q&A following The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum.
