Jobriath A.D. // Scalarama Leeds programme launch The first chance to see the new 2017 Scalarama season trailer, pick up newspapers, flyers and local guides, and there's a film screening, of course, organised by Film Fringe. 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 a fascinating and tragic 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. Pay as you feel. No need to book.

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
