The same day, film buffs can look forward to the London premiere of a biography of Lloyd George, albeit 78 years after its makers intended. The Life Story of David Lloyd George was made with the then prime minister's blessing but was suppressed before its release.
No one has ever fathomed the reason for its disappearance, but the negatives were found among Lloyd George's belongings in his house in Wales. The biopic, starring Norman Page as Lloyd George, will be screened at the National Film Theatre as part of a British Film Institute celebration of the work of film archives.
The first London International Women's Film Festival opens at the Everyman cinema in Hampstead, north London, next month. It will include screenings of more than 120 films and will run from 5 to 18 October.Reuse content
