Wedding on Saturday

UK, 1964 (MIFF 1965)

Director: Norman Swallow

This film creates a collage of life in a Yorkshire mining town: this rather enclosed working com­munity is brought into focus by the impending marriage of Don and Para. With Its insistent search­ing of faces, the film — in what might pass as a piece of tele-verite — gently reveals for us the hopes and attitudes of these people.
