The Acting Class

DIR: DEIRDRE O’NEILL AND MIKE WAYNE. UK 2017. 77 MINS. 

Exploring the difficulties people from working-class backgrounds face when trying to get into the acting profession, The Acting Class follows actor Tom Stocks, who set up the Actor Awareness campaign to challenge the lack of opportunities for working-class actors after he was unable to afford fees for drama school. Among those featured in the documentary are actors Christopher Eccleston, Maxine Peake and Julie Hesmondhalgh who discuss how much things have changed and how they would not be able to follow their dreams if they were starting out now. The film poses the question; why should acting or any of the arts be the preserve of the rich and what are the consequences when they are? 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Mike Wayne and Deirdre O’Neill, who teach film and television at Brunel University. 

Presented by the MA Masterclass Programme of the School of Media, Film and Music, University of Sussex and the Filmmaking Research Network. http://filmmakingresearch.net
