A behind the scenes documentary about Steve McQueen’s car racing drama Le Mans, launches the 2016 season of DukesDocs at the Lancaster cinema.
Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (15) is screened on January 14 at The Dukes and tells the story of a project which the Hollywood star had been dreaming of for a decade. At the time Le Mans went into production, McQueen was one of cinema’s biggest stars but as work on the film got under way, his dream project quickly turned into a nightmare.
A slower pace of life is reflected in The Dukes second documentary of the month – Addicted To Sheep (PG) – on January 16.
Following a packed screening in October, this charming documentary covering a year in the lives of two tenant farmers in the North Pennines, returns for another showing.
January’s final DukesDoc on January 27 is My Nazi Legacy (PG) which follows three men travelling across Europe.
Two of them have to confront the actions of their fathers who were both senior Nazi officers.
Tickets for all DukesDocs, which are the best new documentary films from around the world, are priced £6.50/£5.50 concessions.
