Oxford 2010: George Orwell – A Life in Pictures

  • Chris Durlacher (writer and director, George Orwell: A Life in Pictures)
  • Chaired by Gavin Freeguard (Administrator of the Orwell Prize)

The sixth of the Orwell Prize’s events at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival 2010.

Only a few seconds of video footage of George Orwell is known to exist – walking across a field while at Eton – so writer and director Chris Durlacher had to start from scratch with this dramatised biography. Starring Chris Langham as George Orwell, this critically acclaimed and Emmy-winning film was shown in 2003, the centenary of Orwell’s birth. Chris will be talking and taking questions about the documentary afterwards
