Silent Scream (film)

The Under Ground Theatre's art house film for November will be the British made Silent Scream, an examination of the immense social change of the 1960s as seen through the life of Larry Winters.

The 15 certificate film was made in 1990, directed by David Hayman and written by Bill Beech. Its protagonist, Larry Winters (Iain Glen), was sentenced to life imprisonment for a murder in a Soho bar in 1963. He died of a drug overdose aged just 34. Silent Scream depicts his Glasgow childhood, the close relationship he had with his criminally-inclined older brother Don (Jamie Morton) and his time as a soldier in the Parachute Regiment. Described by Time magazine as one of Scotland's finest films, Silent Scream won a Silver Bear award for Best Actor for Iain Glen and two Scottish BAFTAs for Best Film and Best Director. It is also notable for having the film debut of one Robert Carlyle.

Under Ground Theatre, Thu 21st Nov, 19:30.
Tickets £5, available online, by calling 0845 680 1926, or in person at the Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
