A Cat in Paris
(Une Vie de Chat) (Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol, France 2011, 94mins) Oscar-nominated animation from France about Dino, a cat who lives with a little girl by day, and works for a jewellery thief by night. Stylishly drawn old-school animation that blends effortlessly with a cool Jazz-filled soundtrack. Showing in original or English language versions.
(Kim Ki Duk, South Korea 2011, HD, subtitled) While Kim Ki-Duk (3 Iron, Spring Summer Autumn Winter...And Spring) was shooting a suicide scene for his last film in 2008, his lead actress nearly perished and the incident triggered an emotional and creative breakdown for the director. As an act of self-administered therapy, Arirang takes playful liberties with the documentary form as Kim Ki-duk traces his experiences and mindset during this period of crisis. A unique, challenging and deeply personal look at the man regarded as one of Korea's greatest living directors. Un Certain Regard Award winner at Cannes.

French Can-Can (Jean Renoir, France 1954, HD, 104 mins, subtitled) Renoir's digitally restored classic is one of the great colour films and an entrancingly exquisite musical. Jean Gabin is memorably marvellous as the impresario who plans to launch his latest club, the Moulin Rouge, with a reinvigorated version of the cancan. Boasting exhilarating dance sequences, wit, style and energy (even an appearance by Edith Piaf!).
