Ray & Liz: Interview with director Richard Billingham

After a showing of Ray & Liz at MAC Birmingham, Laura speaks to BAFTA nominated, Turner Prize-nominated and Deutsche Börse Prize-winning artist, photographer and director Richard Billingham about his powerful autobiographical drama.

Local Listings:

On the outskirts of Birmingham and the margins of society, the Billingham family perform extreme rituals and break cultural taboos as they muddle through a life decided by factors beyond their control.

Turner Prize-nominated and Deutsche Börse Prize-winning artist, Richard Billingham, returns to the striking photographs of his family during Thatcher-era Britain for a film based on his own memories, focussing on his parents Ray and Liz, their relationship, and its impact on Richard and his younger brother Jason. At times shocking and laced with an unsettling humour, three episodes unfold as a powerful evocation of experience of growing up in a Black Country council flat.
