Britain | 1976-2020 | various directors For numerous years, we have presented an annual program of witty, inventive commercials that won British Arrows, the UK’s advertising awards. This year we offer a special show consisting mostly of standout selections from previous programs—the best of the best— including ads directed by Wes Anderson, Jonathan Glazer, Michel Gondry, and the late Alan Parker. (See the complete retrospective line-up here.) There are also seven new commercials made during the global pandemic lockdown. “You’ll find loads of self-deprecating humor, social satire and political provocation, singing and dancing, celebrities, and naughty innuendo, all influenced by developing technologies and changing attitudes.” –Walker Art Center.
