Maxine Peake introduces a screening of ‘Funny Cow’, in which she plays a comedian who breaks through the glass ceiling of the all-male 1970s comedy circuit to rise to stardom.

Set against the backdrop of working men’s clubs in the North of England, Funny Cow is both a love-letter to a bygone era and the defiant story of a woman who refuses to give up her dreams.
