Ray & Lizspawned from 1996 series of photographs. Richard Billingham took pictures of his parents in their squalid flat – a tattooed woman in floral dresses, Liz, and her husband Ray, mixing alcoholic drinks. The renowned photographer adapted his previous work into a full-length feature – dimly-lit, hopeless film that cages its complex protagonists in the hell that was created outside their control.
