Zulu + introduction by Stephen Woolley

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, April 02, 2010

Renowned and prolific British producer Stephen Woolley (Made in Dagenham, Perrier's Bounty, How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, Stoned, The Good Thief, The End of the Affair , B. Monkey, The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, Dust Devil, Hardware, Scandal, Mona Lisa, Absolute Beginners, The Company of Wolves, etc.) joins the BFI to introduce Zulu the film that inspired him.

An epic account of the true story of under-strength British forces defending an isolated African mission at Rorke's Drift against hordes of Zulu warriors. Stanley Baker (who also co-produced with director Cy Endfield) impresses as the officer in charge, whilst a then scarcely known Michael Caine adopts an upper-class accent. The spectacular second half of the film is almost totally taken up with the battle, as the Zulus look to overpower the mission and reclaim their land. The stirring music score is by John Barry, the narration by Richard Burton.

In Woolley's words, Zulu is "a terrific adventure film" and this is a rare chance to catch it on the big screen

British producer Stephen Woolley will join the BFI for their latest instalment of their new strand, Screen Epiphanies, to introduce this classic tale. Starring Michael Caine and Stanley Baker, Zulu, a "terrific adventure film" in Woolley's words, is a spellbinding account of the Battle of Rorke's Drift between the British Army and the Zulus in January 1879.
