Lawrence of Belgravia

An intimate and smart documentary portrait of England's greatest lost musical genius. As lead singer with alternative rock band Felt, Lawrence (whose surname was never listed in any credit or press) was responsible for some of the most precious music of the 1980s. Although his records have barely troubled the lower reaches of the charts, his cult status is now greater than ever.  A labour of love, director Paul Kelly’s film follows Lawrence as he tries to balance a precarious domestic lifestyle with running a band and recording his latest album, weighed down by the chips on his shoulders while still dreaming of being a pop star who rides in limousines and dates supermodels.

This screening will feature a live Q&A with Lawrence.
