Celebrated UK photographer Richard Billingham’s award winning debut – a raw and poignant portrait of his working class British family.

Billingham’s feature debut, stunningly shot in 16mm, expands upon his early video and photographic works that captured the bleak familial travails of his hard-drinking and smoking parents Ray and Liz. Recalling the kitchen-sink British social realism of early Ken Loach or Andrea Arnold – but with a vision all his own – Billingham’s loving gaze flicks between the immensely sad, the loving, the hilarious and the shocking. The vignettes of Ray & Liz paint an affecting portrait of a working class family and the film was the winner of the British Independent Film Award (Directorial Debut) 2018.

Grim and sometimes funny vignettes, fragments of a fragmented family life… at once claustrophobic and open-ended or unfinished, leaving the audience with questions. It’s a brutal study of a family coming to pieces.
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
