120 BPM 15

The lives of AIDS activists in early 90s Paris are reimagined in bold and vivid detail in 120 BPM, a stunning and heart-wrenching drama from the writer of Palme d’Or winner The Class, Robin Campillo. Starring Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, Arnaud Valois, Adèle Haenel.

Based on the director’s own experiences, this vibrant and deeply emotional drama rushes with youthful energy, balancing powerful themes of social justice with euphoric moments of spine-tingling sensuality.

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2017 and a host of international awards, this is an essential work of cinema with a profoundly moving and delicately crafted love story at its heart. Urgent and affecting, it’s a film about life, death, passion, tragedy – and, above all, the will to survive.

THE PEOPLE’S FILM CLUB PRESENTS: ‘HOME’ U

Join The People’s Film Club for an evening of film, discussion and action as we screen a selection of short films exploring refuge and asylum. Based on the theme of ‘home’, we’ve got four stellar shorts lined up for you – this isn’t an evening you’ll want to miss! We’ll start the night with music and drinks before the screening, and sit tight for the panel discussion afterwards (panelists TBA). As usual, all proceeds go to charity.
★ Refuge (Dir: Matthew K. Firpo, Documentary, 2016) www.vimeo.com/158751425

Refuge is a multimedia project chronicling human stories from the European Refugee Crisis, focused on humanity and hope. Shot on location in Greece, January 2016.

★ Oksijan (Dir: Edward Watts, Live Action, 2017) www.vimeo.com/231779290

The incredible true story of a 7-year old Afghan refugee who was being smuggled to the UK in a refrigerated lorry when the oxygen inside began to run out.

★ The Island (Dir: Gabrielle Brady, Documentary, 2017)

Christmas Island, off the coast of Australia: here 50 million crabs make their slow and ancient migration, while thousands of people seeking asylum are indefinitely held in a high security detention facility. Poh Lin, a trauma counsellor living on the island, bears witness to the dramatic stories and decline of those being detained.

★ Flight (Dir: Laura Wadha, Documentary, 2017) www.vimeo.com/169785914

Two young sisters who arrive in Sweden having fled the war in Syria are becoming teenagers in a new world. They try to hold on to the fond memories of their once beautiful home while struggling to deal with the repercussions of growing up surrounded by war.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the wonderful MEENA Centre (previously The Unofficial Women and Children’s Centre in Calais), which supports women and children refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

NOBODY ORDERED WOLVES PRESENTS: THEODORA GOES WILD [1936] +INTRO U

See this classic comedy with an introduction from romance novelist Helen Cox.

Witty, feminist and charming, Theodora Goes Wild is a screwball delight that is criminally neglected.

So you’ve written a bestselling scandalous novel, the cheques are rolling in and you’re a total succès de scandale. There’s only one problem: you’re also a pillar of a very conservative community and you’d never want to upset local society by revealing your true identity.

Screwball heroine extraordinare Irene Dunne stars as Theodora, the small town wallflower who no one knows is writing steamy romance novels under a nom de plume. That is until she collides with illustrator Michael (Melvyn Douglas), who is hellbent on travelling to her sleepy berg, mixing up her life and unleashing the true Theodora. Yet that’s only half the story: Michael is menaced by a nightmare vision of the raunchy novelist when he returns to the city, as Theodora truly goes wild.

As funny, pleasing and progressive as the classics of screwball comedy – The Awful Truth, His Girl Friday and The Women – this is a underseen treat.

Helen Cox is a UK author from North Yorkshire who wound up in London after accidentally taking a left turn at Albuquerque. Over the last decade she founded and edited New Empress Magazine, has penned three non-fiction books and written for The Guardian, The Spectator and Film4.Com. Her first two romance novels were recently published by Harper Collins. When she is not writing, Helen can be found at City Lit college where she coordinates the poetry and non-fiction courses.

Nobody Ordered Wolves is a programming strand run by Duncan Carson, sharing the best underseen film and voices in cinema.

SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE PRESENTS: YOUNG ONES [2014] 15

In a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource, the land has withered into something wretched, and the hardened survivors scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) lives on this harsh frontier with his children Jerome (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Mary (Elle Fanning), fends his farm from bandits, works the supply routes, and hopes to rejuvenate the soil. But Mary’s boyfriend, Flem Lever (Nicholas Hoult), has grander designs. He wants Ernest’s land for himself, and will go to any length to get it…

“There hasn’t been as convincing a sci-fi dustbowl story since the original Mad Max”
The Guardian

“The setting is futuristic, but the themes are ancient in Jake Paltrow’s eccentric merger of frontier western and science-fiction gadgetry”
New York Times

Science Fiction Theatre is a monthly film club dedicated to classic sci-fi.
