Left Bank Cinema: London Symphony

Thu 28 September @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Left Bank Leeds, Cardigan Road
Leeds, West Yorkshire LS6 1LJ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£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. Alex Barrett / UK / 2017 / 73 minutes Certificate PG

Is it possible to train his mind to get happier? He pursues three controlled experiments of meditation, therapy, and drugs, grading himself along the way. But real life creeps in and confounds the process: art, sex, love, and death prove impossible to disentangle. His unique designs and painfully personal experiences mark a journey that travels closer to himself than ever intended. Running time 93 min Arrive at 18:30 to get a good seat!

Oakwood Cinema presents the uplifting true story of a group of African American woman  working on the early stages of the NASA space programme.

Having earlier in her career curated one of the worlds finest meteorite collections at the Natural History Museum, and given the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Monica was a key member of the team responsible for the first-ever spacecraft to land on a comet. Her fantastic, joyful reaction to the successful landing of the Philae probe was seen around the world when the video went viral on social media. Doors open 7pm, talk and screening at 8pm.
