Sequence Online

Lindsay Anderson was the presiding figure behind the influential film magazine Sequence (1947-1952), whose non-conformist spirit anticipated the Free Cinema movement that followed a few years later. It has long been the wish of the Foundation to make this important magazine accessible online, and we have made a start by posting on this site issues 2-6.

In Memoriam – Lois Smith and David Storey

The Foundation notes with great sorrow the passing of two people who were very important in Lindsay Anderson’s life. It was Lois Smith  who first encouraged Lindsay to make films. She was the producer of his first documentary, Meet the Pioneers, in 1948. She was also responsible for the establishment of the Lindsay Anderson Foundation. In 1963 David Storey’s screenplay of his novel, This Sporting Life, marked the beginning of a long, distinguished partnership with Lindsay, which saw them go on to work together on ten plays. The following links will take you to appreciations of them in the Guardian: Lois Smith (1919 – 2016)David Storey (1933 – 2017).
