Best known as one of the greatest English novelists of the 20th Century, penning such masterpieces as Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory, The End of the Affair, Burnt Out Case and The Honorary Consul, as well as short stories, noted plays and children's book, Graham Greene's contribution to cinema is less well known.
On the 20th anniversary of Greene's death, Wootton, author of the forthcoming The Films of Graham Greene, gives an illustrated lecture highlighting Green's long and rich relationship with the cinema - from his time as a film critic through scriptwriting to adaptations of his books and even acting.
