Photo Film Club #010

In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter*

– dir Tomas Leach  Cert(TBC)

WEDNESDAY 05th July 2023 at 7pm (doors 6.30pm)

* With special Director’s Introduction for the Colwyn Bay screening


Advance Tickets for the screening are priced at £6 (£8 on the day)

Our aim is to keep the tickets prices for the film screenings as low as we possibly can to open up the screening for more people… BUT… we do need to cover the cost of the film screening in the cinema, SO…  If you are in the position to help out a little more, please do consider making an extra donation to Oriel Colwyn at checkout.

A fascinating documentary on one of the 20th century’s most beloved street photographers, Saul Leiter. A contemporary of Diane Arbus and Richard Avedon, Leiter could have been celebrated as the great pioneer of color photography long ago (his fashion work was published in Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire), but he was never driven by the lure of conventional success. Instead he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of gorgeous work piled high in his New York City apartment. 

Intimate and beautifully rendered, IN NO GREAT HURRY follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing a houseful of memories, becoming world-famous in his eighties, and fending off a pesky filmmaker.

Tomas Leach is an award winning filmmaker from the UK. He studied at Bournemouth Film School and at Fabrica in Italy. 

Now based mostly in LA, his films have played in festivals worldwide, won multiple awards and had wide releases in cinemas. 

In this, his first theatrical feature documentary ‘In No Great Hurry’ – about legendary photographer Saul Leiter – featured on best of the year lists and was described as “A beautiful film about a lovely man” by The Times and “Neon Poetry” by The New York Times.

We are pleased to have a special short introduction by Tomas to be screened before the film.

We gratefully acknowledge Ffilm Cymru Wales support for our regular Photo Film Club screenings.
