Reel Stories

Sat 11 March @ 10:00 am - Sun 3 September @ 5:00 pm
Museum of Liverpool, Pier Head, Liverpool Waterfront
Liverpool, L3 1DG United Kingdom

Free

#reelstories Reel Stories is a special exhibition of more than 40 original film posters and memorabilia celebrating Liverpool’s starring role in films from the past 60 years. Liverpool is a filmmaker’s dream. It’s a city of storytellers and performers, writers and entertainers, musicians and poets. From those first flickering pioneering days of cinema, filmmakers have been drawn to this restless and defiant city, enchanted by the millions of stories it holds, both real and imaginary. Stories of high times and hard luck, of love and hope, of dreams and heartbreak, of wrongdoing and retribution. Reel Stories shines the spotlight on the city’s enduring relationship with the silver screen. We celebrate and explore the films that are undeniably Liverpudlian, those that feature Liverpool as a world film location and the city’s escapist love affair with cinema itself.

pay as you feel

Jobriath A.D. // Scalarama Leeds programme launch The film Jobriath A.D (2012) is Kieran Turner's fascinating documentary about 70s glam rock musician Jobriath. Jobraith is considered to be "the first openly gay rock star" and was dubbed "the American Bowie". He was also, tragically, one of the first rock stars to die of AIDS. He is an intriguing 20th century figure; his short career was preceded by incredible hype, with much of the publicity focused on his homosexuality rather than his musical talent. Dropped by his record company, he died in the Chelsea hotel in his 30s. The film is narrated by Henry Rollins. Kieran Turner | 2012 | USA | 107 minutes | certificate 15 Plus live music from Leeds band Das Pain.   This will be the first chance to see the new 2017 Scalarama season trailer, pick up flyers and local guides.

Branded to Kill

Fri 1 September @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway
London, London SE84PQ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£3.5 - £5

We are celebrating the start of September as it brings with it the annual festival of film clubs and societies Scalarama. We've picked a bizarre, cult classic from Japan to kick off the month. Seijun Suzuki's delirious 1967 hit-man film has drawn comparisons with contemporaries Le Samourai and Point Blank and influenced directors such as John Woo, Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino among others. The story of laconic yakuza Hanada, aka No. 3 Killer , the third rated hit-man in Japan who takes an impossible job from the mysterious, death obsessed Misako. Hanada bungles the hit and finds himself the target of his employers and a bullet ridden journey leads him to face the No. 1 Killer. Shot in cool monochrome with beguiling visuals, Branded to Kill is an effortlessly cool crime film with a jazzy score that caused Suzuki to be fired by the studio s executives but is now rightly recognised as his masterpiece. “The violence is raw, the sex even more so, and the monochrome photography is flawless... Wild, weird and unforgettable. ”— TOM HUDDLESTON, TIME OUT

New Flesh Cinema present a late night screening of a film of twisted humours, a mix of Dr Strangelove and Repulsion, taking place in Prague in the time preceding the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. Juraj Herz's film The Cremator (1968) can be described in many ways - as a surrealist horror, an expressionist fantasy, and as a black comedy. Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hrušínský) is a professional cremator for whom the political climate has allowed free rein to his increasingly deranged impulses.   Tickets → https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scalarama-new-flesh-cinema-presents-the-cremator-tickets-36798054973?aff=es2

Mundane History

Sat 2 September @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway
London, London SE84PQ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£3.5 - £5

Thai director Anocha Suwichakornpong's ethereal first film has been widely praised as one of the most startling and original feature debuts of recent years. This seemingly ordinary, astutely structured family drama is a film with cosmic aspirations. The story of a paralyzed son, his elusive father, and the male nurse hired to take care of the wheelchair-bound patient parallels the emotional dynamic of a single home with the tumult of an entire country. Like its dichotomic title, the film gradually expands outwards to morph into a philosophical and hallucinogenic meditation about our place in the universe. A film as beautiful, strange and as mysterious as life itself. We showed Suwichakornpong's second film By the Time it Gets Dark earlier this year to a sold out cinema, and wanted to give people a chance to catch up with her critically acclaimed first feature as part of the Scalarama festival. Deptford Cinema is proud to be taking part in Scalarama. This annual celebration sees September transform into a month of amazing films, screened in various locations and by all different types of people – from established picture palaces to newbies, completely new to screening films. Scalarama is by everyone, for everyone, everywhere, with DIY in its…

Ever seen a film from Myanmar before?.. Just out of the cutting room, Mudras Calling is now touring the world film festivals and Scalarama Edinburgh is going to be its first stop in Europe – don't miss it! This first feature from a young and very talented Burmese female director Christina Kyi gently weaves two completely different cultures into a touching story of self-discovery. Raised in the US, Jaden sets off to explore his birthplace in Myanmar. Initially aiming to research Burmese traditional music, he meets a local dancer Hnin, who takes him on a bittersweet journey into her culture, his past and their uncertain future. A journey where harsh reality turns into a psychedelic dream, where nothing is certain, but everything is possible.. if you really feel it. The cinematography alone in this film is quite impressive, bringing bewitching sceneries of Burma for your eyes to revel in. Be adventurous, take a glimpse into a different world – it's on your doorstep!   Tickets → https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scalarama-mudras-calling-tickets-36951422700?aff=es2

Radical Home Cinema is an experimental programming and exhibition event where film lovers invite you to watch films in their homes. This event aims to break down the boundaries between public and private audiences, to present films in unexpected places and to turn the viewing experience into something completely new. As part of Scalarama 2017, the bay window space of a tenement living room is converted for use as a cinerama, for a showing of How The West Was Won (1962). Richard Martin is a Glasgow based artist who works with site-specificity, often creating immersive installations and interventions that disrupt both how we use spaces and objects, and how we are expected to behave in relation to them. You can visit his website here: http://www.richardgeographic.com/ Film: How The West Was Won: A landmark MGM epic western, it was made using the three camera Cinerama process for projection onto a curved screen. Billed as a 'star-fest', the film is a coming together of celebrity, technological gimmickry and myth making. The film will be running throughout the day from midday, if you want to see the cinerama in action, with a full free-but-ticketed screening at 4pm.

Leeds, West Yorkshire LS6 1JD United Kingdom

£5.50 - £8.00

As part of the 2017 Scalarama programme we have banded together with Left Bank Leeds and the Hebden Bridge Picture House to present three stunning examples of the City Symphony genre; Man with a Movie Camera (23rd September at Hebden Bridge), Alex Barrett’s brand new London Symphony (28th September at Left Bank) and for our part we couldn’t resist Walter Ruttmann’s glorious ode to Berlin. Preceding The Man With A Movie Camera by two years Vertoz and Ruttman were actually contemporaries much inspired by each other’s work. As with each of the city symphonies Ruttman’s film is both a stunning piece of avant-garde filmmaking and an incredible record of a city which, in this case, would soon be engulfed by the harrowing rise of National Socialism and the eventual bombing raids of World War II which would result in the levelling of over 30% of central Berlin.

Singin’ In The Rain

Sun 3 September @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Picturehouse at FACT, 88 Wood St
Liverpool, Merseyside L14DQ United Kingdom

£8.00

Hollywood’s troubled transition from silent to talking pictures at the end of the 1920s provided the inspiration for perhaps the greatest of movie musicals. “The most enduring film musical to have come out of Hollywood. In all these years not a frame of it has dated; it still retains all its freshness and sparkle.” Clive Hirschhorn, Gene Kelly: A Biography, 1984 To follow the acclaim for An American in Paris, which won him the 1951 Oscar for best picture, songwriter-turned-producer Arthur Freed charged screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green with writing a musical based around some of his own most popular early songs. The result was a nostalgic tribute to the Hollywood of a bygone era starring Gene Kelly as Don Lockwood, the swashbuckling silent star at a film studio grappling with the coming of sound. From the iconic scene in which Lockwood, smitten with young actress Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), dances home during a downpour singing the title song, to the extended ballet sequence featuring Cyd Charisse in a parody of the gangster film, Singin’ in the Rain represents the musical genre at its most energetic and ambitious.

When the Cat Comes (Az prijde kocour)

Sun 3 September @ 6:00 pm - 7:40 pm
Cube Cinema, Dove Street South
Bristol, BS2 8JD United Kingdom

£4 - £5

  Dir: Vojtěch Jasný, Czechoslovakia 1963, 91 mins, subtitles, Cert: TBC A travelling circus arrives at a small Czech village, accompanied by a cat wearing sunglasses. When the glasses are removed, the cat can change people into different psychedelic colours reflecting their best or worst selves. That's probably all anyone needs to know to understand the appeal of The Cat Returns/The Cassandra Cat (except perhaps a picture of the cat, named Mokol), which won two major awards at Cannes upon its release in 1963. This film’s charms are many, from its unprecedented use of colour, to its folksy small-town humour, and experimental take on the fable. A provocative and beautifully executed fantasy with great camerawork, this film was seen as an unacceptable take on the shortcomings of communist society after the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia and banned.

Morgiana

Sun 3 September @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Cube Cinema, Dove Street South
Bristol, BS2 8JD United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£4 - £5

Dir: Juraj Herz, Czechoslovakia, 1972, 97 mins, subtitled, Cert: 15 With delirious visuals conjured by cinematographer Jaroslav Kučera (Daisies) and often described as the 'last' film of the Czech New Wave, Juraj Herz's delirious tale of terror is a fantastical and surreal phantasmagoria of dark desires and splintered minds – a twisted Czech take on Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and Poe's The Black Cat. Based on a short story by Aleksandr Grin, (the 'Russian Poe'), Morgiana is the story of twin sisters, Klára and Viktoria who live a life of decadent opulence, somewhere in the late 19th century. Klára is auburn-haired and beautiful, whilst Viktoria is wicked, sadistic, bursting with hate and jealousy - and who hatches a terrible revenge by slowly poisoning her more popular sister.

Liverpool Pride Presents Kiki

Liverpool, Merseyside L14DQ United Kingdom

£7.50

Plays as part of Liverpool Pride's International Love Season. Director: Sara Jordenö. USA/Sweden 2016. 96 mins. Twenty-five years after Jenny Livingston’s seminal documentary Paris Is Burning, which shone a light on ’80s Harlem’s ballroom scene, this explosive and uplifting new documentary reveals one of the subculture’s contemporary descendants: the Kiki scene. Part activist movement, part artistic milieu, the Kiki community is a site of radical self-expression for young queer people of colour in New York City, whose ballroom competitions and surrogate queer families provide both creative platforms and a source of succour for individuals facing multiple forms of marginalisation. Shot over four years, the film follows seven members of the community through the difficulties of illness, homelessness and everyday discrimination, as well as the joys of spectacle, camaraderie and personal affirmation. The film will be preceded by a short film in conjunction with Random Acts. En Vogue Dance icons Derrick Xtravaganza & Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza star in director Jenn Nkiru’s homage to one of NYC's last subcultures: voguing and ballroom.   Picturehouse at FACT members can get their tickets for just £5.50.

Freightened – The Real Price of Shipping

Leeds, West Yorkshire LS6 1JD United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£5.50 - £7.50

90% of the goods we consume in the West are manufactured in far-off lands and brought to us by ship. The cargo shipping industry is a key player in the world economy and forms the basis of our model of modern civilisation. Yet, the functioning and regulation of this business remain largely obscure to many, and its hidden costs affect us all. Due to their size, freight ships no longer fit in traditional city harbours; they have moved out of the public’s eye, behind barriers and check points. The film answers questions such as: Who pulls the strings in this multi-billion dollar business? To what extent does the industry control our policy makers? How does it affect the environment above and below the water-line? And what’s life like for modern seafarers? Taking us on a journey over seas and oceans, Freightened reveals in an audacious investigation the many faces of world-wide freight shipping and sheds light on the consequences of an all-but-visible industry. This screening will be accompanied by an introduction by Rose George, author of the book Deep Sea and Foreign Going: Inside Shipping, the Invisible Industry That Brings You 90% of Everything. Rose is a journalist and TED…

With this wonderful black-and-white journey through the city of London, director Alex Barrett brings a gloriously beautiful and enjoyable modern-day variation on the city symphonies of the 1920s urban cinema (such as 1929's Man With A Movie Camera). His stunning visuals, combined with James McWilliam's stirring music, help take the viewer on a poetic journey through London, exploring its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion. It is a meditative and blissful film that celebrates a vibrant and visually stunning city. The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's director/editor Alex Barrett. "As a salute to London, Barrett's work is to be celebrated in itself. But as it comes after a recent spell of significant distress and upheaval to the city and its inhabitants - both locals and tourists - it's existence is all the more significant" - Jamie Neish, CineVue "majestic and captivating...

The Kid with a Bike Directed by Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne Starring Cécile de France, Thomas Doret, Jérémie Renier Rating: 12 2011 87 min The story of an abandoned 12-year old boy who gets taken under the wing of a local woman, this Cannes Film Festival hit follows Cyril, the eponymous kid of the title, a child left to fend for himself in a state-run children’s home after his father leaves town. Refusing to believe he has been rejected by his father, he spends his days trying to reach him, either on the phone, or on his beloved bike. It is only when he meets Samantha, a local hairdresser, that he finds someone able to give him the patience and compassion he needs to move on, even if his anger threatens to get in the way. A deceptively simple, empathetic film that explores the drama of everyday life with sensitivity but without sentimentality, this ninth effort from writer-director sibling duo Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne has simplicity and sincerity, and is heart-rendingly tender. + Vive Le Tour Directed by Louis Malle Rating: Exempt 1962 18 min An energetic tribute to the Tour De France - cycling’s most prestigious event, Vive…

Presented by Basis Yorkshire with support from Slung Low “The child may not remember but the body remembers.” The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.   This performance is free but tickets must be reserved in advance.

After the huge success of celebrating one of Bristol's film heroes, South West Silents and Dawkins Ales are proud to announce another chance to raise a glass to celebrate the great Bristol film pioneer, William Friese-Greene. Born in Bristol on 7th September 1855, William Edward Green (the Friese-Greene was added later) is classed by many as one of the founding fathers of British Cinema and a key figure in the early development of cinematography as a whole. In some circles he is celebrated, while in others he is damned for filing patents on devices he allegedly didn’t invent. On Thursday 7th September 2017 (Greene’s birthday in fact) we will celebrate the inventor's birthday by celebrating the return of the beer dedicated to him. 'The Friese-Greene' will be launched at the Dawkins’ pub The Victoria, Clifton (next to the Lido) with a selection of films inspired by the work of William Friese-Greene on the night. The launch party starts at 7:00pm and will end late. Please arrive whenever you like, the doors and bar will be open!

The Horse Hospital, Colonnade, Bloomsbury
London, WC1N 1JD United Kingdom

£8

Dr Clive Riordan (Robert Newton) has a problem. His wife Storm (Sally Gray) is engaged in a dalliance with American Bill Kronin (Phil Brown). How best to deal with it? The only way a post-war British man can: kidnap the adulterer, trap him in a Blitzed building and hold him until you’ve filled a bath with acid to dispose of his body. But then a strange dynamic springs up between the men, with Clive delivering Bill’s daily poison to the bunker in a hot water bottle. Edward Dmytryk, a master of noir, made this thriller when banished to the UK as a victim of McCarthyism; as a result, it has an outsider’s keen eye for British manners and folly and offers especially insightful commentary on the rise of America and the decline of the British Empire. With a bone-dry wit that masks a chilling premise, this is a darkly humourous story of murder that shows how British men coped with the dawning realisation of post-war impotency. We are very glad to be joined by academic and writer Richard Hornsey, author of The Spiv & The Architect: Unruly Life in Post-War London, for an extended intro to discuss the film's depiction…

Dir. Pablo Giorgelli, Argentina/Spain, 2011. 82mins. Cert 15 “Las Acacias, Deserving of Its Awards, Is All About The Road Taken. “Winner of the Best First Feature at Cannes Pablo Giorgelli’s minimalist, gentle road movie traverses 900 miles, from Asunción, Paraguay—where terse, middle-aged truck driver Rubén (Germán de Silva) picks up Jacinta (Hebe Duarte) and her five-month-old baby girl, Anahí—to Buenos Aires, where the unmarried mother hopes to start anew. Las Acacias is generous and expansive, subtly registering how these three strangers eventually become at ease with and grow attached to one another. The film never feels clinical or cold, but rather compassionate and curious. Watching this taciturn man grow close to mother and child is one of the most satisfying spectacles in a movie this year, a time-lapse of emotions rendered perfectly.” Village Voice

Transit Arts presents Uncanny Loop: The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Fri 8 September @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
CCA Glasgow, 350 Sauchiehall Street
Glasgow, G2 3JD United Kingdom

£3

Uncanny Loop: The Bird with the Crystal Plumage is the second screening event in Transit Arts’ newly established Uncanny Loop programme. This event is a rare chance to see the first giallo film The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970) directed by Italian horror pioneer Dario Argento (Suspiria, Deep Red). This feature will be accompanied by  selected works of artists’ moving image. The Bird with the Crystal Plumage follows Sam Dalmas, an American writer living in Rome after he inadvertently witnesses a brutal attack on a woman in a contemporary art gallery. Powerless to help, he grows increasingly obsessed with the incident. Convinced that something he saw that night holds the key to identifying the maniac terrorising Rome, he launches his own investigation parallel to that of the police, heedless of the danger to both himself and his girlfriend Giulia. Uncanny Loop connects the contemporary urban experience with the Gothic mode and historical conceptions of ‘the uncanny’. An unfolding anthology of spaces shaped by evolving social and economic forces, this film programme proposes a reinterpretation of the haunted house as something much closer to home. https://youtu.be/8rWtIA-ogaI

Buñuel and Mercero. Two cult masterpieces of Spanish cinematography. Two claustrophobic horror classics together for just one night. Pretty excited to recover these two gems for a very special night. Constantly looking for new film experiences Cinemaattic have put together Antonio Mercero’s short film La Cabina (The Telephone Box) with Luis Buñuel’s El Ángel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel). It’s been forty-five years since La Cabina changed Spanish television forever, fifty-five since the release of Buñuel’s El Angel Exterminador but in a time of political uncertainty unparalleled in recent memory, our shared sense of “what next?” panic and inertia finds its echo in these people. They can barely rouse themselves to leave a room or a telephone box, unable to take any decisive action beyond attempting to survive. Both Buñuel and Mercero built these two masterworks on a common bold premise: Society is fucked up. “La Cabina”, Antonio Mercero (1972) Made during the last years of General Franco’s right-wing dictatorship in Spain, La cabina (The Telephone Box or Phone Booth) is a disturbing little movie, which critiques the insidious potential of technology, and the mass indifference of the public to the plight of the individual.   Luis Buñuel's "The Exterminating Angel"…

The Bill is a British police procedural television series that was first broadcast on ITV in October 1984 and ran until 31 August 2010. The programme originated from a one-off drama called Woodentop, which was broadcast in August 1983. There have been numerous actors who either appeared in The Bill as regulars, or whose careers The Bill has made a significant impact on. The regular cast included Barbara Thorn, Christopher Ellison, Tony O’Callaghan, Graham Coleman, Eric Richard, Simon Rouse, Jeff Stewart and Chris Simmons. The constant need for minor characters, who normally appeared in only a single episode, inevitably led to numerous high profile actors and actresses having guest roles. These have included Brian Murphy, Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Paul O’Grady, Sean Bean, Roger Daltrey, Ray Winstone, and Misty Moon’s own Linda Regan, to name a few. Ashley Gunstock, who played PC Robin Frank between 1984 – 1989 will be appearing. After leaving The Bill, Ashley became a member of the Green Party and has been an environmental activist since 1989.

London Symphony is a brand new silent film - a city symphony - which offers a poetic journey through London, a cosmopolitan city facing a challenge to its identity in the current political climate. Directed by Alex Barrett, and featuring an original musical composition by James McWilliam, it is an artistic portrait of the city as it stands today, and a celebration of its culture and diversity. The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's director/editor Alex Barrett. "As a salute to London, Barrett's work is to be celebrated in itself. But as it comes after a recent spell of significant distress and upheaval to the city and its inhabitants - both locals and tourists - it's existence is all the more significant" - Jamie Neish, CineVue "majestic and captivating... The profundity conveyed through the imagery is sublime… a wonderful aesthetic experience" – Neil Fox, The Cinematologists "This virtuoso display of editing weaves together a staggering volume of footage of contemporary London, addressing a wide spread of themes and geography with knife-sharp monochrome cinematography" - Rachel Brook,…

Rare screening of the 4K restoration of Karel Zeman's imaginative masterwork. Tickets are £5 on the door. It's very much a kid friendly film and it will be disappointing to not to have a few kids there. Kids get in free with a paying guardian. Often described as the ‘Czech Méliès’, visionary filmmaker Karel Zeman is treasured by generations of filmmakers worldwide, from Jan Švankmajer to Tim Burton, the Quay Brothers to Terry Gilliam, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Wes Anderson. His ground-breaking innovations in the use of live-action and animation mark him as one of the great masters of 20th Century fantasy cinema, ranking alongside his more celebrated Western counterparts Willis O’Brien and Ray Harryhausen. The Fabulous Baron Munchausen is perhaps Zeman’s most beloved achievement. Zeman’s wildly inventive and comic take on the surreal adventures of the bragging Baron explodes on to the screen in a riot of colour, visual wit and poetic verve. A celebration of human imagination, The Fabulous Baron Munchausen has become widely recognised as a classic - a timeless work that continues to astonish. "Why do I make movies?

Will eating insects save our Earth? Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security. For the past three years, a team from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab, made up of chefs and researchers Josh Evans, Ben Reade and Roberto Flore, has been travelling the world to learn what some of the two billion people who already eat insects have to say. In BUGS, film director Andreas Johnsen follows them as they forage, farm, cook and taste insects with communities in Europe, Australia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and beyond. During their journey they encounter everything from revered termite queens and desert-delicacy honey ants to venemous giant hornets and long-horned grasshoppers trapped using powerful floodlights, which sometimes cause their operators blindness. Throughout the team’s experiences and conversations in the field, at the lab, at farm visits and international conferences, some…

Death Watch (1980) follows the story of Katherine Mortenhue (Romy Schneider) who gets famous for having an incurable disease in a future where death from illness has become extremely unusual. Journalist Roddy (Harvey Keitel) has a camera implanted in his eye which transmits what he sees so it can be relayed back to the television company NTV who wants to document Katherine’s deterioration in a Reality TV show. Katherine, after being offered a large sum of money if she allows her last days to be filmed, goes on the run with the assistance of Roddy. Much of the filming took place in and around Glasgow, including Glasgow Necropolis, Glasgow Cathedral, the former Queen's Dock on the River Clyde, and the Glasgow City Chambers. A dark, sobering piece from Bertrand Tavernier, Death Watch explores the sinister lengths a morally bankrupt TV production company will go to. Akin to Sidney Lumet's Network, Death Watch is a film that, as the years pass, only grows more and more unsettling with its stark, harsh message on a society in disrepair. Where death and decay is readily celebrated with ratings from a soulless production company, Death Watch questions the very essence of what human compassion…

Constantly looking for new film experiences Cinemaattic have put together Antonio Mercero’s shortfilm La Cabina (The Telephone Box) with Luis Buñuel’s El Ángel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel). It’s been forty-five years since La Cabina changed Spanish television forever, fifty-five since the release of Buñuel’s El Angel Exterminador but in a time of political uncertainty unparalleled in recent memory, our shared sense of “what next?” panic and inertia finds its echo in these people. They can barely rouse themselves to leave a room or a telephone box, unable to take any decisive action beyond attempting to survive. Both Buñuel and Mercero built these two masterworks on a common bold premise: Society is fucked up. “La cabina”, Antonio Mercero (1972) Made during the last years of General Franco’s right-wing dictatorship in Spain, La cabina (The Telephone Box or Phone Booth) is a disturbing little movie, which critiques the insidious potential of technology, and the mass indifference of the public to the plight of the individual.   Luis Buñuel's "The Exterminating Angel" (1962)…

As part of our ongoing #DirectedByWomen2017 season we present Lizzie Borden's incredible 'Born In Flames'. Set ten years after the most peaceful revolution in United States history, a revolution in which a socialist government gains power, this films presents a dystopia in which the issues of many progressive groups - minorities, liberals, gay rights organizations, feminists - are ostensibly dealt with by the government, and yet there are still problems with jobs, with gender issues, with governmental preference and violence. In New York City, in this future time, a group of women decide to organize and mobilize, to take the revolution farther than any man - and many women - ever imagined in their lifetimes.

Before Victim, Dirk Bogarde starred in another risky tale of queer desires and murder. In Lewis Gilbert’s tart noir, Edward ‘Teddy’ Bear is the man-child husband of a rich heiress, Monie, on whose fortune he has nefarious designs. However, his plans go awry when he disposes of her just before she can alter her will in his favour. Forced to find another woman to prey on, he happens upon Freda (The Lady Vanishes’ Margaret Lockwood). But she is wise to Edward’s ploys and unwilling to accept his sexual reticence… what’s a guy to do? This modern Bluebeard story is crisply shot with a healthy dose of expressionism. Bogarde plays Edward with camp mania, pursued all the while by Philip (Robert Flemyng), a bloodless and dogged lawyer. Flouting all male codes in the pursuit of naked self-interest, Bogarde as Edward is the terrifying embodiment of new 1950s manhood.

Following on from her feature debut Diva, Anna Biller directed, wrote, produced, scored and created all of the sets and costumes for her next film, The Love Witch. As that title suggests, Elaine (Samantha Robinson) is a witch who uses magic potions and spells to make men fall madly in love with her, and usually with death on the cards. Inspired in part by the films of Douglas Sirk, and with a score reminiscent of Morricone’s compositions for Argento’s earlier work, The Love Witch is both a homage to 1960s technicolor melodramas and 1970s schlock horror with a feminist spin.

Centring first on the investigation into the murder of drifter Teresa Banks, and then going on to detail the tragic final days of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) one year later, the film presents an altogether bleaker, more disturbing portrait of small town America than its television counterpart. Featuring a towering performance at its centre from Sheryl Lee, Fire Walk with Me also finds space for memorable comedic turns by Chris Isaak and Kiefer Sutherland, a sublimely odd minor role for David Bowie, and arguably Angelo Badalamenti’s finest score for the director.

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD. ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including 'One Of These Days', the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show. Both concerts also saw very special performances of 'The Great Gig In The Sky' from 'The Dark Side Of The Moon', which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder . ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top…

Screening entirely from VHS, with original trailers included and tape swaps encouraged, VHS Trash Fest aims to bring you the very best in classic VHS horror trashdom. Read on for full programme.... Our opening night on Friday 15th September kicks off with Brian Yuzna's body horror yuck-fest Society (1989), taking place appropriately enough in Summerhall's old Anatomy Lecture Theatre. Amphitheatrical in shape and over 100 years old, this is where animals would be dissected in front of an audience in this former vet school. Join us as we descend into the world of paranoid Bill who suspects his middle-class family might not be quite what they seem... Not for the faint-hearted or weak-stomached! Doors 7pm for tape swap, film starts 8pm. Location: Anatomy Lecture Theatre The Saturday of VHS Trash Fest brings a highly-anticipated double bill of Trash classics in the form of Clive Barker's Nightbreed (1990) and infamous Video Nasty slasher The Burning (1981) in Summerhall's Red Lecture Theatre. A monster movie…

Commissioned to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the October Revolution, The End of St Petersburg secured Vsevolod Pudovkin's place as one of the foremost Soviet film directors. His sophisticated analysis of the Revolution sits within a brilliant and dramatic reconstruction of the major events. Paul Robinson’s compelling score has overt Russian leanings with the shadow of Shostakovitch not far behind the surface, together with arrangements from Red Army Ensemble material and Russian folk song.

The Punk Singer – Fourwalls at Radical Home Cinema

Fourwalls, 35 Carnarvon Street
Glasgow, Scotland G3 6HP United Kingdom
+ Google Map
Free

Radical Home Cinema is an experimental programming and exhibition event where film lovers invite you to watch films in their homes. This event aims to break down the boundaries between public and private audiences, to present films in unexpected places and to turn the viewing experience into something completely new. Fourwalls Housing Co-op is a women-centered living space formed in Glasgow during the 90s by female members of the city's LGBTQ community. Film: The Punk Singer: Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as the reluctant but never shy voice of the riot grrrl movement. She became one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons, a cultural lightning rod. Her critics wished she would just shut-up, and her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna, THE PUNK SINGER takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.

'It's time to start running...' By 2017 the world economy has collapsed. Food, natural resources and oil are in short supply. A police state, divided into paramilitary zones, rules with an iron hand. Television is controlled by the state and a sadistic game show called "The Running Man" has become the most popular program in history. All art, music and communications are censored. No dissent is tolerated and yet a small resistance movement has managed to survive underground. Celebrating 30 years since the film's original release. The Loft Movie Theatre, Porlock Press & The Film Exchange invite you to experience this film like never before. Be a contestant in the game zone. Join the runners, or the stalkers in a battle for supremacy and toast your victory with a screening of this dystopian classic in a unique setting, Nottingham's own hi-tech gladiator arena, Quasar!

Isolation – Ireland on Screen

Sat 16 September @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway
London, London SE84PQ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£3.5 - £5

A farm in rural Ireland is the setting for genetic experimentation on cows. The experiment in reproduction genetics sees calves being born pregnant. When one of the calves escapes, a path of destruction is created. Far from the romantic images of rural Ireland that promote tourism Isolation explores the labour, and difficulties of sustaining a agricultural livelihood in Ireland. It is also a film that comes in the wake of economic crisis in Ireland, and to some extent plays on the fears of the impact of disease following the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001. Ireland on Screen is our regular look at representations of Ireland and Irish subjects in film and moving image. Isolation is our first foray into the horror films that have been made in Ireland, it will not be our last. “Isolation is a claustrophobic, increasingly icky chiller that is just as horrifying for its underlying ideas as for the more visceral shocks that it presents on screen.” — ANTON BITEL, FILM 4 Deptford Cinema is proud to be taking part in Scalarama. This annual celebration sees September transform into a month of amazing films, screened in various locations and by all different types of people – from…

Alan will discuss the texture of the film — how its visual and sound tracks emphasise an experience rather than a story. Joe will discuss the text of the film – the idea of paranoiac structure, and how Pynchon’s characters navigate this. ----------------------------------------- Philosophy & Film is an ongoing series, held in partnership with the University of Leeds, exploring philosophical questions raised by some of cinema’s most intriguing films. Click here to see other films in this season.

Sun 17 September @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sandrine Bonnaire won the Best Actress César for her portrayal of the defiant young drifter Mona in Agnès Varda's Vagabond. Found frozen to death in a ditch at the beginning of the film, Mona’s story is pieced together through flashbacks told by those who encountered her (played by a largely non-professional cast), producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond is a compelling watch, and won Varda the top prize at the 1985 Venice Film Festival. Part of a She's A Rebel mini-season for Scalarama, looking at the cinematic representation of female adolescence and girls who refuse to conform.

OXIDE GHOSTS: THE BRASS EYE TAPES (Michael Cumming, 2017) Made from hundreds of hours of unseen material from his personal archive, director Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye.

DISPOSSESSION: THE GREAT HOUSING SWINDLE

£5

Directed by Paul Sng Rating: U 2017 82 Mins In 1979, council housing was home to 42% of Britons. Today, it houses just 8%. From the Right to Buy scheme that allowed working class tenants to become home owners to governments who failed to meet demand and the profit-driven interests of private developers and housing associations, the UK now faces a chronic shortage of social housing. A crisis that has led to a waiting list of 1.4 million people and 250,000 classed as homeless, amidst changes in housing policy, it suggests the end of social housing as we know it. An urgent argument for housing to be further up the political agenda, Dispossession - directed by Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain) and narrated by Maxine Peake (Shameless, See No Evil, Three Girls) - talks to residents, politicians and housing experts. It is the story of people fighting for their homes, families and communities who believe housing should be a human right, not a luxury. This screening is to mark National Housing Day - http://housingweek.co.uk/housingday/ Doors - 7.00pm Film - 7.30pm

Good Vibrations is a 2013 biopic of Terri Hooley, and details one man’s passion for music. Hooley opened Good Vibrations record shop during the times of The Troubles in 1970s Belfast. Hooley faced a lot of highs and some lows and this film follows his adventures in music and shows how music can create a community. The purpose of Good Vibrations record shop was to promote peace through music, mostly reggae, but the direction of the shop changes when he is introduced to punk and the band Rudi! The energy of the band and the genre inspires him to form a label and becomes a creative force that a certain Feargal Sharkey wants to sign for, which then gains The Undertones ‘Teenage Kicks’ a momentous back-to-back playing on John Peel’s radio show - a euphoric moment! Hooley puts his heart and soul into his endeavours, which puts a strain on relationships and finances so puts on a one last ditch fundraiser attempt at Belfast's iconic Ulster Hall. There is a stellar cast involved in this film and Richard Dormer puts on an incredible performance as Hooley and you can’t help but root for him with his loveable wide-eyed charm and…

The quiet traditional life of a small Sicilian island is challenged when a boatload of illegal immigrants arrives, forcing the inhabitants to choose between the ‘law of the sea’ and the prospect of being punished for saving them from drowning. This battle between the local carabinieri and the fishermen who represent an older, more humane ethos impacts on all members of a struggling local family. Do they sell out what they know to be right so that they may eventually fit into the new world? Ernesto is an elderly fisherman on Linosa where fishermen are punished for saving boat people from the sea and, back on shore, letting them go, because this amounts to facilitating illegal immigration. The fishing business has gone into a slump and many on the island have either opened businesses catering to tourists or moved elsewhere, though his 20-year-old grandson Filippo works with him. Ernesto and his family become unwitting criminals when they choose to help a family with nowhere to turn in this drama from Italian filmmaker Emanuele Crialese. Even though Terraferma takes place on the other side of the world, it is, unfortunately, exceedingly relevant to local audiences. A beautiful, engrossing film with heart,…

Cowards Bend The Knee with Live Score by Ela Orleans

Matchbox Cineclub present Guy Maddin's Cowards Bend The Knee, with brand-new live score written and performed by Ela Orleans, plus Q&A with journalist Brian Beadie. Guy Maddin is one of the most distinctive and idiosyncratic directors currently working. The Canadian auteur has mined and subverted the imagery and style of late silent and early sound cinema in such films as The Forbidden Room and The Saddest Music In The World to disorientating, often hilarious effect. Cowards Bend The Knee is one his greatest, but least-known films. Originally conceived of and presented as a peephole show, the film’s ten chapters concoct an alternative cinematic biography for Maddin, torn between the influence of his hockey star father and his attraction to Meta, the beautiful girl from the local beauty salon / illegal abortion clinic. This is Guy Maddin in purest form, the most concentrated and probably craziest film of his career. Never have hockey, hairdressing, homophobia and hand amputations collided to such dizzying effect, in perhaps the most authentically surrealist film of the 21st century. For Scalarama, Matchbox Cineclub have commissioned Ela Orleans to write a new score. “Ela is FANTASTIC!” – Guy Maddin Ela Orleans has gained an international cult reputation for her…

Sun 24 September @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Cube Cinema, Dove Street South
Bristol, BS2 8JD United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£4 - £5

Jacques Rivette, 1974, 193 min, 35mm, In French with English subtitles, Cert: 12A Rivette’s rarely seen yet biggest commercial hit, is an exhilarating combination of the themes of theatricality, paranoia and la vie Parisienne, all wrapped up in an extended and entrancing examination of the nature of filmmaking, and film-watching. Celine, a magician, and Julie, a librarian, meet in Montmartre and wind up sharing the same flat, bed, fiancé, clothes, identity and imagination. Soon, thanks to a magic sweet, they find themselves spectators, then participants, in a Henry James-inspired ‘film-within-the film’, a melodrama unfolding in a mysterious suburban house with the ‘Phantom Ladies Over Paris’, a sinister man and his child. The atmosphere, however, is more Lewis Carroll, with Juliet Berto and Dominique Labourier as twin Alices. The four main actresses improvised their own dialogue in collaboration with Rivette and scriptwriter Eduardo de Gregorio. Acknowledged by director Susan Seidelman as a huge influence on her own hit film Desperately Seeking Susan (1985), Celine and Julie Go Boating was Rivette’s greatest commercial and critical success – its freewheeling, playful spirit still capturing the imagination of new audiences today.

The Loft Movie Theatre and Porlock Press are proud to present a special screening of David Lynch's mesmerising murder-mystery masterpiece: Blue Velvet In this atmospheric tale of small town intrigue, college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) happens across a severed ear in a field near his father's home, and subsequently becomes embroiled in the complicated lives of enchanting lounge singer Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini), and dangerous gangster Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper) - a psychopathic criminal with a penchant for Roy Orbison - who seems to have Dorothy under his spell. Blue Velvet is a story of kidnap, violence, obsession and love, set in a world of unsettling sexual depravity. With its timeless hyper-nostalgic tone hiding a dark disturbing undercurrent, and an evocative score created by Angelo Badalamenti, it is not difficult to see a connection to the mysterious world of Twin Peaks, which Lynch brought to our screens just a few years later.

Stanley Baker was the perfect new man for the 1950s: butch, beefy and all about gravel. In Hell Drivers, he broke straight out of the Rhondda, playing Tom, an ex-convict looking to make good as a driver for a gravel merchant. But Red – played with wolfish menace by Patrick McGoohan – is having none of it when Tom threatens his position as top dog. With a murderer’s row of acting talent in supporting roles, from Sean Connery to Sid James to Peggy ‘Gun Crazy’ Cummins to Herbert Lom, this is a very British thriller that is unafraid to glamorise the world of gravel haulage.

Steven Patrick Morrissey wants to write and sing. But as a young man, his voice goes no further than the NME letters page and his dead-end office walls.

2016  France/Spain/Portugal 115 mins (subtitled). Director: Albert Serra Stars: Jean-Pierre Léaud, Patrick d'Assumçao, Marc Susini Confined to his sumptuous chambers, the Sun King is fussed over by courtiers and valets, and there's a worrying mark developing on his foot. To make matters worse, the finest minds in 18th-century medicine are at his service. Léaud poignantly portrays the aged monarch's world-weariness, with flashes of his old charisma and lust for life, and the sets, costumes and supporting cast are impeccably convincing. A rich vein of dark humour complements the otherwise sombre tone of this fine account of Louis's last days.

Free-spirited Lulu sets her sights on uptight banker Charles for a little bit of fun. Their relationship starts off simple enough with a tryst and some modest adventure, but Lulu wants Charles to pose as her husband at a high school reunion. It seems harmless enough to Charles, but that all changes when Lulu's actual husband, Ray, confronts them at the event. Understandably, Ray isn't content to let Charles and Lulu ride off into the sunset.

2100 A.D. Live from the underwater ruins of the old human city known as Miami, the only survivors, psychedelic sea creatures Edgar, Sally, Shivers, Gregor and Harold, sift through the visual artefacts of the past and share their favourites with us… Borscht is an open-source filmmaking collective dedicated to articulating the voices of the New Miami and its idiosyncratic culture, providing a global stage for underrepresented (often female, Latin American, African-American, and Afro-Caribbean) identities in film. Borscht’s growing reputation culminated in Barry Jenkins’ feature Moonlight winning the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture. Borscht brought Jenkins and his co-screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney together, and was instrumental in getting the film made. The first international retrospective of Borscht took place at Glasgow Short Film Festival in 2014; we’re thrilled to bring back the group’s latest work, fresh from the 10th edition of the lawless gonzo Borscht Film Festival. Expect fake found footage, lizard obsession, Japanese Bunraku puppetry and a fanimaltastic TV show. Served with cocktails and Miami sounds in the hotbox surroundings of the Rum Shack Dance Hall.

£4 - £5

Could it be that the city symphony film genre is making a comeback? City symphonies originally became popular in the silent era, when the ‘rules’ of filmmaking were still being discovered. Films like Études sur Paris (1928) and Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (1927) offer fascinating glimpses of the times and fashions in Europe’s great cities, while the experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera (1929) regularly tops lists of people’s favourite films of all time. This is why director Alex Barrett has called his new film “a postmodern study of modernity”. London Symphony is like the classics of the 1920s, a modern, silent take on the English capital made nearly a century later. The film’s composer, James McWilliam, has written a new 70 minute piece of orchestral music which is matched to the journey, and we’re delighted that we can screen this film Left Bank just after its world premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

"A bold debut feature that audaciously rethinks the possibilities and language of cinematic form. A powerful and original new voice has been discovered." - Sight & Sound "A stunningly photographed, radically edited work that merits comparison to late Godard… that is, if Godard was raised on hip-hop and without money." - Mark Peranson, Pardo Live (Locarno Film Festival)

120 minutes  Cast: Black Sabbath  (2017) SYNOPSIS The End of The End chronicles the final tour from the band who forged the sound of metal - Black Sabbath. On 4th February, 2017, the band took to the stage in Birmingham, the city where it all began, to play the 81st and final gig of The End tour - bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century. The sold out show marked the culmination of a tour that had seen them play to well over a million fans in arenas across the globe. Since their beginnings in 1968, they created a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world – an influence which is still felt to this day. The End of The End is the story of that final, emotionally-charged concert. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close and personal with the band on stage as they perform genre-defining hits, from Iron Man to Paranoid to War Pigs, amongst others. Sabbath also took the opportunity to spend some time in the studio, delivering a unique performance of some of their favourite…

Interweaving fictional scenes with news footage, the film focuses on the ‘Algiers Motel incident’ in which three white police officers and one black security guard (John Boyega) were accused of murdering three black civilians and savagely beating many more.

Il Sorpasso – about an impulsive braggart who takes a shy law student on a two-day ride. El Verdugo – about an undertaker who gets married to an old executioner's daughter and inherits his profession.. but is too reluctant to practice. Dark, elegant and hilarious. Hovering somewhere between Italian Neorealism and the French New Wave for some bizarre reason neither ever seem to make it to anybody’s ‘must watch’ lists – how could it be?? We say, too much spotlight for Fellini and Godard. Time to (re)discover Risi and Berlanga!
