This Faber Members event has sold out.
Our inaugural Faber Members’ Film Club welcomes Nobel Laureate Kazuo Ishiguro to select our first film. Guests will enjoy a screening of Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth (1991), followed by a Q&A with Ishiguro, led by Faber film editor Walter Donohue.
Faber Members’ Film Club invites writers, poets and other artists to choose a film that has arrested them or helped illuminate their own work. There are just fifty guest seats available for these screenings, which are held at Bloomsbury House, the home of Faber & Faber, making them very special opportunities to hear from leading literary and film figures on works that have influenced them.
Doors: 6.30 p.m.
Film starts: 6.50 p.m.
Film ends: 9:00 p.m.
Q&A ends: 9.30 p.m.
Kazuo Ishiguro was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954 and moved to Britain at the age of five. His eight works of fiction have earned him many awards and honours around the world, including the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Booker Prize. His work has been translated into over fifty languages. The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go were made into acclaimed films. Ishiguro also writes screenplays and song lyrics. He lives in London with his wife and daughter.
Night on Earth (1991)
Following five taxi journeys across five cities: New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome and Helsinki, Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth is a rich, funny and poignant meditation on human interaction.
