John Orr obituary

Studies in Eastern European Cinema have just published an obituary of our University of Edinburgh colleague and friend, the much-missed John Orr.

John joined us at Salford for the Polish Cinema in an International Context conference, run by us, UCLAN, the Polish Film Institute, the Cornerhouse Cinema and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in December 2009.

Some shots of the event:

The redoubtable Dan Bird makes the case for a reassessment of late Walerian Borowczyk. Dr Goddard is amused.
