Synopsis

Inspired by David Banning’s talk on Cumbrian film locations we wanted to
screen a companion piece to showcase our fantastic landscape.
Ken Russell was the obvious choice of Director and after much searching
we are thrilled to be able to screen Clouds of Glory, thought for many
years to have been lost. Commissioned by Melvyn Bragg for Granada TV,
Clouds of Glory is Ken Russell’s interpretation of the lives and loves of
Coleridge and Wordsworth. David Warner, David Hemmings, Felicity
Kendal and Kika Markham vie for the lead against the landscape of Borrowdale.

Thanks to Lisi Tribble

105 minutes, Ken Russell, 1978 (15)
