Harold Pinter: Art, Truth And Politics (DVD)


In late 2005 Harold Pinter videotaped a lecture on the occasion of the award to him of one of the most distinguished of honours, the Nobel Prize for Literature. His speech, delivered directly to camera, is a complex reflection on his own writing and an excoriating attack on the foreign policy of a "brutal, ruthless and scornful" United States.

Harold Pinter reflects on the genesis of his plays "The Homecoming" and "Old Times"; on the problems of political theatre; on the tragedy of American actions in Nicaragua; on the invasion of Iraq and on other crimes by the United States in the past half century.

"Art, Truth & Politics" is a speech that made headlines around the world. It is an urgent and compelling appeal for us all as citizens to seek out and honour truth.
