Six Days To Saturday

Anything curated by Saint Etienne always stirs an interest from me. Following on from the excellent Pop Fiction season is this selection of vintage footie documentaries under the name of Six Days To Saturday, along with the debut of a new one, again at London’s Barbican.

The season takes its name from John Boorman’s 1964 Swindon Town documentary Six Days To Saturday, which features, alongside Leyton Orient: Yours For A Fiver, the story of a team on the brink of bankruptcy, plus the new feature, Monty The Lamb, a film about non-league Hendon FC.

Other highlights include The Game Of Their Lives, which looks at the against-the-odds achievements of North Korea, a World In Action documentary on Stanley Matthews, along with a Yorkshire Television documentary from 1974 on Brian Clough (pictured) and his time at Leeds.

The films run from 5th June.
