DMUtalks presents: ‘it was a movie we all felt strongly about, because nobody really wanted to make it’: 30 years of James Ivory’s Maurice (1987) @ De Montfort University
Feb 22 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Professor Claire Monk reflects on the journey of
British cinema through the prism of James Ivory’s
Edwardian gay male romance Maurice (1987),
which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017 and
is now recognised as an LGBTQ+ film classic.
Drawing on her own insights and Ivory’s
production archives, Professor Monk’s lecture
is a behind-the-scenes of this landmark film.
With Ivory back in the media spotlight as the
screenwriter of the Oscar-tipped Call Me By Your
Name, Professor Monk explores what it was like
to make the first affirmative mainstream gay film
– and a gay classic ‘heritage’ literary adaptation –
in the 1980s.
Refreshments will be served from 6pm and
following the talk.
