In-Edit Beefeater 2015: All My Loving + The Wigan Casino

It's a double feature of films by director Tony Palmer, shown in English with subtitles in Spanish. Top billing goes to the Beatles film 'All My Loving' (UK, 1968, 55’), where Palmer looks at pop through modern eyes (in 1968), giving voice to critics, preachers and crowned monarchs. A priest compares London to Sodom and Gomorra, while Paul McCartney talks about using his power for good. Also on the bill is 'The Wigan Casino' (UK, 1977, 26') , the only documentary about northern soul that captured it in its heyday. Palmer travels to Wigan – northern cradle of that working class dance brotherhood – and analyzes the club and the parishioners, but also the assembly line and the Industrial Revolution.
