Ray & Liz (Richard Billingham, 2018)

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The first feature film by Turner Prize–nominated visual artist Richard Billingham is rooted in his striking photographs of his troubled parents, who give the film its title. Taking place in three episodes and time periods, this matter-of-fact “cine-memoir” recreates the Billingham family’s life on the margins in the West Midlands, UK, patiently illustrating how poverty can lead to dysfunction, addiction, and isolation. The scenes play out with unusual attention to detail, resulting in the evocation of a brutal, tender, and bleakly funny world that feels fully lived in. (107 mins., DCP)
