Cast Us Not Out

UK, 1969 (MIFF 1970, Programme 10)

Director: Richard Bigham

A documentary examination of the plight of the old in Britain, showing the work being done by such organisations as the Jewish Welfare Board to alleviate it. The script is deliberately explicit, describing some of the harsh facts of ageing, and the camera concentrates disturbingly on the textures of the aged human face.
