Terence is internationally recognised for creating films that depict the emotional lives of individuals and communities, based on his experiences of growing up in Liverpool during the 1940s and 50s. Terence will deliver his inaugural lecture at the University’s Sherrington Building on Thursday, 22 July.
The lecture will begin with extracts from Terence’s recent award winning film about the place of his birth Of Time and the City and an early short film, Children, that reconstructs Terence’s experience of growing up in a working-class district of Liverpool. The films reveal the tension between social and family life, and the experience of struggling to cope with the impact of war, themes that reoccur in the multi-award winning Distant Voices, Still Lives.
The screened extracts will be accompanied by a panel discussion with Terence, Head of the Department of Communication and Media, Dr Julia Hallam and research associate, Dr Les Roberts.
The lecture takes place at 6.00pm (doors open 5.30), Thursday, 22 July at the University’s Sherrington Building, Ashton Street. The event is free but places must be booked by contacting Donna Martyn on 0151 794 2890 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
