Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.

States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s

The ideological turmoil that marked the late 1960s gave way in the 1970s to a more strident politics that involved stark contrasts between left and right, with both sides willing to act with violence for the changes they sought in society. Manchester’s HOME presents a selection of gripping titles from this moment, when European filmmakers turned to the format of the thriller to respond to the fractured politics of the time; exploring conspiracy theories, authoritarian regimes, and political violence.
