THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES 12A

Granted exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings by Orson Welles, filmmaker Mark Cousins dives deep into the visual world of this legendary director and actor, to reveal a portrait of the artist as he’s never been seen before – through his own eyes, sketched with his own hand, painted with his own brush. Executive produced by Michael Moore, The Eyes of Orson Welles brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman, and explores how the genius of Welles still resonates today in the age of Trump, more than 30 years after his death.

THE HEIRESSES 12A

An immaculate, entirely female-driven drama, the debut feature of Paraguayan filmmaker Marcelo Martinessi screened in Competition for the Golden Bear at the 2018 Berlinale, where it won the Alfred Bauer Silver Bear and received unanimous acclaim.

Both a piercing character study and a commentary on the Paraguayan class structure, it follows Chela (Ana Brun) and Chiquita (Margarita Irún), who – both women descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay – have been together for over 30 years when their precarious financial situation begins to impact both their way of life and their relationship.

Forced to cope on her own, Chela starts driving for the first time in years, providing a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies. Encountering the much younger Angy (Ana Ivanova), they forge a fresh and exhilarating connection – encouraging Chela to finally break out of her shell and embark on a personal revolution, engaging with the world on new and intimate terms.

THE PEOPLE’S FILM CLUB PRESENTS: GAZA SURF CLUB U

Join The People’s Film Club at the Institute of Light on Thursday 23rd of August for a screening of Gaza Surf Club. The evening will be in aid of Explore Corps, a charity at the core of the surfing scene in Gaza. Before the film, we will be joined by Andy Martin, writer of the cult classic Walking on Water and the first journalist to have a surfing column in a British newspaper.

“The sea plays the role of the psychotherapist here. It’s the psychotherapist of two million people.”

————————–

Gaza Surf Club explores what it means to be young and living a life under occupation. The documentary tells the story of young people taking to the waves in the Gaza Strip, where they yearn for an escape from one of the world’s most battle-scarred regions.

Focusing on the protagonists’ struggles to do what they love, the documentary sheds light on women’s rights under the fundamentalist Hamas regime, and resilience in the face of societal and familial pressure in this celebration of youth, self-expression, and the dreams which lie in all of us.

The screening will be followed by a short video from the founder of Explore Corps, made specially for this event.

————————–

TICKETS: £7.50 standard / £10.50 solidarity

(All profits from our ticket sales always go to charity – solidarity tickets are simply an optional larger donation.)

————————–

This event is organised by The People’s Film Club, a group which unites powerful documentaries with the speakers and activists who understand the subjects best.

Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

Set in ’70s Kingston and ’80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he’s not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow “the righteous path”, he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution – a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).

SUPAKINO & FYFC PRESENTS: BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM [2002] 12

Forever Young Film Club & SUPAKINO team up for a screening of Gurinder Chadha‘s hit feel-good movie Bend It Like Beckham: a film which manages to balance substantial themes of family, friendship, culture clash, racism and sexual identity whilst also serving a relatable slice of UK teen life.

Undoubtedly one of the most essential British coming-of-age films from the past twenty years, the joyous performances, iconic 2000s fashion and banging UK pop and Bhangra soundtrack also make it one of the most fun.

Oh, and plenty of turbans in this movie! Special shout-out to the versatile award-winning actor Anupam Kher as the habitually worried but ultimately supportive father in his navy uniform turban. #TurbansSeenOnScreen

“The acting is as nimble as the footwork.” –TIME Magazine

SUPAKINO presents Turbans Seen On Screen (TSOS): film screenings featuring notable characters wearing turbans.

Forever Young Film Club: A film collective celebrating and reappraising classic coming-of-age and teen films, and exploring lesser known gems through regular screenings and events.

YARDIE 15

Set in ’70s Kingston and ’80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he’s not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow “the righteous path”, he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution – a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).

SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE PRESENTS: THE TRUMAN SHOW [1998] PG

Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) has a seemingly idyllic lifestyle: a secure job, a loving family and a peaceful home. Yet, unbeknownst to him, his entire existence has been one long TV series, the people around him Hollywood actors, the town a massive studio set, and the whole show orchestrated by a visionary director (Ed Harris)…

“One of the smartest, most inventive movies in memory, it manages to be as endearing as it is provocative.”
Washington Post

“This ingenious satirical comedy drama about media omnipotence is both dazzling and sophisticated from audacious start to poignant finale.”
Radio Times

“One movie you can pronounce a modern classic with absolute confidence.”
Time Out

“A gemlike picture crafted with rare and immaculate precision.”
Variety

“The underlying ideas made the movie more than just entertainment. Like Gattaca, the previous film written by Niccol, it brings into focus the new values that technology is forcing on humanity.”
Roger Ebert

“A performance of profound charm, innocence, vulnerability and pain.”
TIME

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