Celebrated photographer Richard Billingham marks his feature debut with this raw, tender and uniquely moving cine memoir. Inspired largely by Billingham’s troubled childhood in Thatcher-era Birmingham, it’s a singular take on the British kitchen sink drama, delineated via a series of vignettes in which his alcoholic father Ray, mother Liz and brother Jason demonstrate how a life lived on society’s margins can spiral out of control. Powerfully evocative and finely composed – in grainy 16mm frames rich with colour, texture and meaning – Ray & Liz prompts you to look and look again, and will reward both fans of Billingham’s work and newcomers to it.
