John le Carré – An Evening with George Smiley

ONE TIME ONLY: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2017

In support of Médicins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders (MSF), the emergency medical humanitarian aid organisation, John le Carré is donating his speaker’s fee, and the producers of the live cinema broadcast, The Ink Factory, are donating their share of the profits to the charity.

Filmed on September 7, 2017 during a live broadcast from London’s Royal Festival Hall, one of the world’s great writers shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character.

From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful descriptions of the arms trade in The Night Manager, and the War on Terror in A Most Wanted Man, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century. In this one-off event, the author discusses the full breadth of his career, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.

Coinciding with the publication date of his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, the film includes readings from the book by the author. The novel sees the return of some of le Carré’s most iconic Cold War characters, including George Smiley and his trusted lieutenant, Peter Guillam, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a rare question and answer session, this will be an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words.
