David Mackintosh: The Curtain Preview • Blaenwelediad: Thu 28 April • 6pm • Iau 28 Ebrill Exhibition • Arddangosfa: Fri 29 April — Sun 19 June Gwe 29 Ebrill — Sul 19 Mehefin David Mackintosh’s disarmingly simple drawings are by turns naïve and macabre; mundane then exciting; graphically simple and yet expressively complex. Rendered in a limited palette of black, red, green and yellow gouache, the tone of his works is both intricate and elusive, their graphic presence sharing much of the language of cartoon or illustration. But there is something about the seemingly straightforward spontaneity of his marks — loaded as they are with salaciousness, humour and pathos — that suggests a further reading or intimates that the composition of the subject is anything but one-dimensional. Recently, the complexity of his drawings’ psychological landscapes has been matched with a formal expansion of the possibility of drawing beyond the limitations of the page. For Chapter, Mackintosh has created a number of new works that continue this development in his practice using animation, music and three-dimensional forms. Biography David Mackintosh was born in Sunderland in 1966; he lives and works in Manchester. Recent solo presentations include Cornerhouse, Manchester (2010) and Spike Island, Bristol (2008) and he has exhibited in group shows at the Tegnebiennale, Norway (2010); Contemporary Art Society, London (2009) and Gallery Praxis Hagen, Berlin (2007). He has work in Collection Berge Madrid; Ernst & Young London and in private collections throughout Europe and America. David Mackintosh is represented by works|projects.

Assembly: Art in the Bar Lloyd Durling Until Sun 8 May • Tan Sul 8 Mai Lloyd Durling’s modestly sized drawings are made from an innumerable amount of strokes that form a surface similar to thin washes of paint. Created using simple drawing tools — mainly felt-tip pen and graphite — the images are both animated and claustrophobic. For his exhibition at Chapter, Lloyd has made a number of monochromatic wood engravings of suspended still lifes. In these striking pieces he uses silhouettes to explore negative space, and give the impression of physical form by working back-to-front, filling in the space directly around the image. He has also produced a series of new felt-tip pen drawings which exploit colour, pattern and texture to great effect. In these drawings, apparent tranquillity is undercut by small pictorial details that suggest potential loss amid a quiet existence. Behind the inviting façade is the reality of how we could live with practically nothing and nothing practical. A limited edition postcard has been produced to coincide with the exhibition and is available from The Shop.

Biography Lloyd Durling was born in Solihull and lives and works in London. He is represented by Mermaid and Monster, Cardiff and Golden, Chicago. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Laughter Staggers On’, Golden, Chicago (2010); ‘Somewhere Better Than This’, Pippy Houldsworth, London; ‘Schadenfreude’, The Royal Academy of Arts Sackler Cafe, London (2006). Selected group shows include the ‘International Biennal of Engraving’, Aqui Terme, Italy (2010); ‘Sweet Dis/order’, Whitworth Art Gallery & Museum, Manchester (2009); ‘The Golden Record’, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh; ‘Scope Art Fair’, New York; ‘Republic, L’est’, London; ‘Salon 2007: New British Painting and Works on Paper’ (all 2007). Lloyd’s work is included in collections at the Whitworth Art Gallery & Museum, Manchester; Progressive Art Collection, USA; Nomura Bank, Japan and Fidelity PLC, London.

Assembly: Art in the Bar Annabelle Shelton Fri 13 May — Sun 3 July • Gwe 13 Mai — Sul 3 Gorffennaf Annabelle Shelton draws influence from her social and geographical investigations of space and environment. She uses extensive photographic documentation, as well as memory, to create rich, detailed studies that are then re-presented using layers of watercolour and pencil. Interested in the Japanese art of ‘Ukiyo-e’ (traditionally meaning ‘sad world’), Annabelle takes the more recent translation ‘floating world’ as inspiration for her playful, dreamlike and sometimes surreal landscapes. She takes us on a personal journey, revealing elements of the familiar through her unique use of positive and negative space. Annabelle is exhibiting a number of previous works, alongside a new painting, specially created for Chapter. Biography Born in 1968 in London, Annabelle attended Staffordshire University Stoke on Trent and UCE Birmingham, and is now based in Milton Keynes. She is represented by Rarity Gallery, Greece and Bedford Street Gallery, UK and is a founding member of Market Project, based in the East of England. Recent exhibitions include: ‘John Moores Painting Prize Exhibition’, Walker Gallery, Liverpool, UK (2011); ‘Five’, Aberystywth Art Centre Gallery, UK; ‘Beyond’, Wysing Art Centre, Bourn, Cambridge, UK; ‘Summer Salon’, Rarity Gallery, Mykonos, Greece; ‘Art Beat’, Woburn Estate, Bedfordshire, UK (all 2010). Annabelle’s work is included in several private and public collections nationally and internationally including the UK, Greece, Italy, France and the USA. Her work is held in The Open University and Alliance and Bernstien collections. www.annabelleshelton.com www.marketproject.co.uk

The resulting project archive is made up of more than 900 recordings. For one night only, Yvonne — who admits she herself can’t sing a note — will brave the mic to perform, after which she will offer you the chance to get involved. £3 (book early from Chapter box office to avoid disappointment) This event is developed in partnership with Elbow Room

Voices of Partition Literature and Partition

Jessie Brett and Carlota Mantecon

Tue 3 May • 7.30pm • Maw 3 Mai The Partition of British India and creation of Pakistan in 1947 led to one of the most traumatic periods in the history of the subcontinent. The literature from this period, often written in regional languages, described acts of unprecedented brutality to moments of compassion and humanity. Part of the Sangat series of events, this evening explores the work of Panjabi poet Amrita Pritam (Ode to Warris Shah) and Urdu short story writer Sadaat Hasan Manto (Toba Tek Singh), and Khushwant Singh’s 1956 novel ‘Train to Pakistan’. The event features contributions from writer Reginald Massey and musician Simon Kholi and is chaired by Tej Purewal, who has recently been researching ‘Gender, Caste and the Practices of Religious Identities’ in Punjab.

Christopher Rees (with band and horns) + John Lewis Fri 13 May • 8pm • Gwe 13 Mai Acclaimed Welsh singer/ songwriter Christopher Rees returns to Chapter to launch his fifth album. Recorded in Texas with The South Austin Horns, ‘Heart on Fire’ draws on his love of vintage Stax recordings, and features a collection of songs that recall beloved Southern Soul songwriters Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham. It might sound like a change of direction for an artist recently seen plucking a banjo and stamping his feet on tour with Steve Earle, Kristin Hersh, The Sadies, The Handsome Family and Chuck Prophet, but MOJO Editor Phil Alexander says Rees has always been “full of simmering soul”. Rees is joined by his full band and horn section for this special album launch performance. Support comes from international rockabilly hero John Lewis. £7 (£8 on the door) www.christopherrees.co.uk

Jâms Thomas takes on the role of the great word-spinner, filling in many of the hilarious details of his life. £4 (on the door)

Torch Theatre Company Flowers from Tunisia by Laurence Allan Wed 25 May • 8pm • Mer 25 Mai There’s nothing like a bit of romance to spice up your holiday — a camel ride through the desert, a Bedouin banquet, a mystery tour through the medina... but when Reah, who is experiencing the early stages of Alzheimers, announces to her son Keith that she is marrying a seventeen year old flower seller from Tunisia, what should they do? A brave play which explores a delicate subject with humour and compassion, this is a timely revival of an acclaimed drama from one of Wales’ finest playwrights. Widely praised on its first production in 2005, Flowers from Tunisia won the Theatre in Wales Award for Best New Play. Directed by Simon Harris Designed by Joana Ferrão £10/£8/£6

Fair Game Fri 29 April — Thu 5 May • Gwe 29 Ebrill — Iau 5 Mai USA /2010/108mins/12A. Dir: Doug Liman. With Sean Penn, Naomi Watts.

In 2003, Valerie Plame’s status as a CIA agent was revealed by the White House as an alleged response to her husband’s article in the New York Times claiming the US had manipulated intelligence about WMD to justify the invasion of Iraq. Based on true events, this gripping conspiracy thriller explores what happens when a secret agent is ‘outed’, leaving her international contacts vulnerable, her home life and career in a mess and her life in danger.

“a riveting conspiracy thriller in the class of All the President’s Men” — The Observer

Bad Film Club: Catwoman Sun 1 May • Sul 1 Mai USA/2004/104mins/12A. Dir: Pitof. With Halle Berry, Sharon Stone, Benjamin Bratt,

Winning 5 Razzie awards (nominated for 8) including worst picture and worst screenplay, it was only going to be a matter of time before The Bad Film Club team brought this cat-astrophic classic to Chapter. A shy woman, endowed with the speed, reflexes, and senses of a cat, walks a thin line between criminal and hero, even as a detective dog-gedly pursues her, fascinated by both of her personas. This screening features Nicko and Joe’s irreverent, live, DVD-style commentary.

Catwoman

Cave of Forgotten Dreams [2D] Fri 29 April — Thu 5 May • Gwe 29 Ebrill — Iau 5 Mai USA /France/2010/90mins/U. Dir: Werner Herzog.

Gaining exclusive access to the cave paintings of the Chauvet Pont d’Arc in southern France, Werner Herzog was tasked with documenting the 30,000-year-old drawings and paintings for the symbolic cost of one Euro. And he doesn’t disappoint. Using only a minimum of light and a custom-built hand-held camera, he succeeds not only in filming, but in bringing the images to life with his wonderfully idiosyncratic mix of fascination and humour. Making use of the contours of these ‘moving’ rock paintings as the starting point for a philosophical meditation on the origins of the art of film, he also explores questions of human existence. Werner Herzog also features this month in The Wild Blue Yonder (p32); Encounters at the End of The World (p33) and My Dog Tulip (p34).

The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc-Sec Fri 29 April — Thu 5 May • Gwe 29 Ebrill — Iau 5 Mai France/2010/107mins/subtitled/12A. Dir: Luc Besson. With Louise Bourgoin, Mathieu Amalric.

Luc Besson turns his comic and fantastical imagination to the extraordinary adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. Set in the early part of the 20th century, the story follows the popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the police, monsters and a host of other distractions. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi’s original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in recent history.

Source Code Fri 29 April — Thu 5 May • Gwe 29 Ebrill — Iau 5 Mai USA /2010/93mins/12A. Dir: Duncan Jones. With Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan.

British director Duncan Jones follows his debut feature Moon with this science fiction thriller about a decorated soldier, Captain Colter Stevens, who wakes up in the body of an unknown man. He discovers that he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of the Chicago commuter train he’s travelling on, and is involved in a government experiment which enables him to cross over into other people’s bodies. With a second, much larger bomb threatening to kill millions, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is responsible and prevent the next attack.

Upside Down: The Creation Records Story + Post screening Q&A with Alan McGee Wed 4 May • Mer 4 Mai UK/2010/101mins/ctba. Dir: Danny O’Connor. With Gruff Rhys, Bobby Gillespie, Alan McGee, Noel Gallager.

During the 1980s, Alan McGee’s Creation Records were revered by a generation of knowing boys and girls with floppy fringes, who embraced the initial releases by The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine as the soundtrack for their lives. By the turn of the decade, Creation were releasing indisputable touchstones ‘Screamadelica’ and ‘Loveless’, putting out records as diverse as Teenage Fanclub’s debut ‘Bandwagonesque’ and Sugar’s ‘Copper Blue’, and nurturing such new talents as Ride and Swervedriver. The phenomenal success of Oasis in the mid-90s meant cosying up to New Labour and ruling the Britpop roost. The background to all this is a tale of near-bankruptcy, hard partying, bitter feuds, sell-out accusations, heavy drugs and nervous breakdowns. Danny O’Connor’s passionate documentary gives McGee the chance to tell his side of the story of arguably the last British indie label to really matter.

EXCLUSIVE GLASVEGAS OFFER For just £15 you can buy a ticket to this event followed by Glasvegas at Cardiff Students’ Union Great Hall. Upside Down screening and Q&A finishes at 8.15pm. Glasvegas will be onstage at 9pm.

Scream and Scream Again: A Celebration of Vincent Price We’re celebrating the centenary of the birth of the Master of the Macabre, screen legend and horror icon Vincent Price with some very special events including music from Animat, a fright night inspired by the infamous showman William Castle, guest speakers, a Chapter Cinema Quiz and a Clubfootfoot special. Miss it if you dare!

The Tingler

The House of Usher

Sun 1 + Tue 3 May • Sul 1 + Maw 3 Mai

Sun 22 + Tue 24 May • Sul 22 + Maw 24 Mai

USA/1959/80mins/15. Dir: William Castle. With Vincent Price, Judith Evelyn, Patrica Cutts.

UK/1960/85mins/15. Dir: Roger Corman. With Vincent Price, Mark Damon, Myrna Fahey.

This imaginative thriller follows a scientist who believes screaming releases tensions that would otherwise kill people. When a deaf mute theatre operator dies, Price discovers that the cause of her death was an insect that attaches itself to a person’s spinal cord and can only be killed if the victim screams. + Join us on the Sunday for a fun, interactive tribute to the master of thrills and spills himself, William Castle.

When a beautiful young woman’s suitor arrives at the family house of Usher to ask for her hand in marriage, the doors of the mysterious mansion fling open and terror begins. The young woman’s brother is violently opposed to her planned marriage and resorts to wonderfully macabre ends to prevent the cursed Usher blood from spreading to future generations. + Join us after the screening on Sun 22 May for a special Adaptations event where we discuss Vincent Price’s relationship with the writing of Edgar Allan Poe.

An Evening of Edgar Allan Poe Sun 8 + Tue 10 May • Sul 8 + Maw 10 Mai UK/1971/52mins/ctba. Dir: Ken Johnson. With Vincent Price

A rare opportunity to see Vincent Price perform a selection of four of the most popular Poe poems. This is Poe in its truest form — spell-binding, macabre, poetic and horrifyingly beautiful. + Join filmmaker Casey Raymond on Sun 8 May as Clubfootfoot showcases a host of bizarre TV appearances from the latter part of Price’s colourful career.

Witchfinder General

Sun 15 + Tue 17 May • Sul 15 + Maw 17 Mai UK/1968/81mins/18. Dir: Michael Reeves. With Vincent Price, Ian Ogilvy, Wilfred Brambell.

It’s 1645 and England is torn by civil strife as the Royalists battle the Parliamentary Party for control. Superstition is rife and threatens rational thought across the land and Matthew Hopkins, the Witchfinder General, tours the country instigating witch hunts and extracting confessions through torture. When Hopkins persecutes a priest, he incurs the wrath of his son in law who leaves his military duties to pursue the evil Hopkins and his minion Stearne. Controversial upon release due to the particularly sadistic exhibition of violence, this film has generated a large cult following in the years since its release. + We hope to be joined for the Sunday screening by a representative of the Pagan Society of Cardiff.

SPECIAL EVENT WITH LIVE MUSIC

The Last Man On Earth Sun 29 May • Sul 29 Mai Italy/USA/1964/86mins/PG. Dir: Ubaldo Ragona. With Vincent Price, Franca Bettoia, Emma Danieli.

This post-apocalyptic horror fantasy stars Vincent Price as scientist Robert Morgan, the one man apparently immune to a virus that has killed 90% of the earth’s population and transformed the survivors into vampire-like creatures. During the day he tours his abandoned hometown, tracking down and destroying the vampires, always making sure to return before nightfall. Hope arrives in the form of an apparently normal young woman, but her agenda is not what it seems… This 1964 classic was remade in 2007 as I am Legend starring Will Smith. The screening features a new soundtrack, performed live by Animat, who use a mixture of their own original brand of dubby downtempo and an eclectic selection of tracks from their DJ archive. The Sheffield-based duo have developed a national reputation for their innovative series of re-scores. www.animat.co.uk

Introduce your kids to Vincent with our screenings of Edward Scissorhands on Sat 7 May (see p35).

Llygaid Sgwâr Gan Philip Wyn Jones Treuliodd yr actor Americanaidd Vincent Price (1911- 1993) y flwyddyn 1961 yn Rhufain. Yno y ffilmiodd addasiad o nofel Richard Matheson, I Am Legend, stori iasoer a ffug-wyddonol am yr unig ddyn yn y byd i oroesi pla. Roedd dau gyfarwyddwr, Ubaldo Ragona a Sidney Salkov a chast a chriw Eidalaidd. Gwnaed fersiynau Eidaleg a Saesneg; L’ultimo uomo della Terra a The Last Man on Earth. Ffilmiwyd mewn stiwdio ac ar strydoedd Rhufain — yn gynnar yn y bore. Aeth tair blynedd heibio cyn i’r ffilm gael ei rhyddhau, ym 1964. Doedd neb bron yn ei hoffi. Roedd Price wedi mwynhau’r profiad o actio’n gynnil am unwaith wrth bortreadu’r dyn unig hwn ond nid dyma’r Vincent Price roedd pawb yn ei hoffi. Bellach mae’r farn wedi newid a’r ffilm wedi troi’n gwlt ac yn glasur sy’n cynnwys gwaith gorau Price. Mae Chapter yn ei dangos ym mis Mai i ddathlu pen-blwydd geni Price ym mis Mai 2011. Ganed Vincent Price yn St Louis, Missouri i deulu cefnog. Enillodd radd BA yn Saesneg a Hanes Celfyddyd ym Mhrifysgol Yale a gradd MA yn y Celfyddydau Cain ym Mhrifysgol Llundain. Dechreuodd actio ar lwyfannau Llundain a Broadway ym 1935. Aeth draw i Hollywood ym 1938. Rhwng 1938 a 1952 gwnaeth 30 o ffilmiau. Roedd dramâu hanesyddol, dramâu dirgelwch, sawl melodrama, ambell gomedi ac un ffilm iasoer, sef Tower of London, gyda Basil Rathbone a Boris Karloff. Ym 1953, er mwyn ceisio denu cynulleidfaoedd America yn ôl i’r sinema, buddsoddodd y stiwdios mawr mewn technolegau newydd. Dewis Warner Bros. oedd 3D. Penderfynon nhw ail-wneud Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933), hanes cerflunydd sy’n llofruddio modelau addawol, eu gorchuddio mewn cwyr, a’u harddangos yn ei amgueddfa. Price gafodd y brif ran yn y fersiwn newydd, House of Wax, ffilm mewn 3D, Warnercolor a stereo. Cafodd Price flas arbennig ar chwarae’r math yma o ran ac o’r trigain o ffilmiau a wnaeth rhwng 1953 a 1990 roedd eu hanner yn perthyn i’r categori iasoer. O blith y cyfarwyddwyr mae dau yn mynnu sylw. Y cyntaf ydy William Castle. Arbenigai mewn cynhyrchu a chyfarwyddo ffilmiau iasoer rhad ond poblogaidd. Yn eu plith roedd House on Haunted Hill a The Tingler ym 1958 a 1959, gyda Vincent Price. Yn ystod y ffilm gyntaf byddai sgerbwd ar wifrau yn hedfan uwchben y gynulleidfa. Yn ystod yr ail byddai rhai seti yn y sinema wedi eu cysylltu â’r cyflenwad trydan ar gyfer rhoi sioc ysgafn bob hyn a hyn i’r sawl oedd yn eistedd ynddynt! Y cyfarwyddwr arall oedd Roger Corman. Chwaraeodd Vincent Price y brif ran mewn saith o’i ffilmiau rhwng 1960 a 1964. Roedd y rhan fwyaf wedi eu haddasu i’r sgrin o lyfrau Edgar Allan Poe gan Richard Matheson, awdur I Am Legend. Dyma rai ohonyn nhw: The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Raven, The Masque of the Red Death a The Tomb of Ligeia. Newydd weld a mwynhau’r rhain roedd y cyhoedd pan ymddangosodd The Last Man on Earth a’u siomi’n ddirfawr. Dwi’n siŵr na chawn ninnau ein siomi pan welwn y ffilm yn Chapter.

Fri 6 – Thu 12 May • Gwe 6 – Iau 12 Mai Germany/2011/106mins/subtitled/U. Dir: Wim Wenders. With Ensemble Tanztheatre Wuppertal, Pina Bausch.

This feature-length dance film portrays the exhilarating and inimitable art of great German choreographer Pina Bausch, who died in the summer of 2009. You’re taken on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery right onto the stage of the legendary Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble. The film also accompanies the dancers beyond the theatre, into the city and the surrounding industrial landscape of Wuppertal — the home and centre of Pina Bausch’s creative life for more than 35 years. Wim Wenders first saw a piece by Bausch — ‘Café Müller’ — in 1985, and was immediately bowled over. They soon developed a longstanding friendship that led eventually to an idea for this stunning joint film project. + see p14 to read about Mui Yuk Chen, a pioneering Hong Kong dancer and choreographer whose latest show comes to Chapter Theatre in June, and includes footage made with Pina Bausch. In the 1990s, Pina Bausch spent time in Hong Kong making a new work about the fascinating city. She met with Mui Cheuk Yin, who subsequently performed her work in Germany at Pina Bausch’s theatre in Wuppertal.

Farewell Fri 6 — Thu 19 May • Gwe 6 — Iau 19 Mai France/2009/113mins/12A. Dir: Christian Carrion. With Emir Kusturica, Willem Dafoe, Guillame Canet.

Moscow, in the early 1980s. An unsuspecting French engineer is supplied with secret documents by a KGB colonel codenamed ‘Farewell’. The documents reveal the extent to which the KGB has infiltrated security agencies in the west, and are passed on to the top echelons of the French and US governments. It’s been some time since Cold War spy films have been de rigeur, but the convincing atmosphere of paranoia and tension marks Farewell as a rewardingly old fashioned international thriller rather than any sort of pastiche. Emir Kusturica gives a stand-out performance as ‘Farewell’, in a terrific cast of American, French and East European actors, for once mostly speaking in their own language, bringing an authenticity to the action which is rare in the genre.

How I Ended This Summer Fri 6 — Thu 12 May • Gwe 6 — Iau 12 Mai Russia/2010/124mins/subtitled/15. Dir: Alexei Popogrebsky. With Grigory Dobrygin, Sergei Puskepalis.

In beautifully minimalist fashion, this taut psychological drama is made all the more gripping by the isolation and desolation of the striking polar landscape of its setting. On a deserted, windswept Russian island inside the Arctic Circle, two men spend the summer working at a meteorological station. The gruff polar veteran Sergei barely tolerates the inexperienced Pavel, a feckless graduate on a temporary posting. Then a series of misunderstandings and mishaps cause them to turn against one another. Highly original, and with a unique atmosphere and sense of place, this is a memorable and deeply affecting work. Winner of the Best Film Award London Film Festival 2010

Sweetgrass Fri 6 — Thu 12 May • Gwe 6 — Iau 12 Mai USA/2009/101mins/ctba. Dir: Ilisa Barbash, Lucien Castaing-Taylor.

An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Ilisa Barbash’s documentary follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana’s Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains for summer pasture. It was a journey of almost 300 kilometres through expansive green valleys, by fields of snow, and across hazardous, narrow ridges. The aging shepherds do their very best to keep the hundreds of sheep together in an area teeming with hungry wolves and grizzly bears. This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.

Third Star Fri 20 — Thu 26 May • Gwe 20 — Iau 26 Mai Wales/2010/90mins/advised 15. Dir: Hattie Dalton. With Benedict Cumberbatch, Hugh Bonneville, Adam Robertson.

This is the truly beautiful tale of four best friends who set off on a camping trip to Barafundle Bay with precious few outdoor skills other than tea making. As James reveals the true reason for inviting his friends along on this significant journey, the young men share their hopes and fears on an adventure that will test their strength, friendship, and belief in what makes life worth living.

“A huge, sweeping film with a knockout central performance by Benedict Cumberbatch.” Kate Muir, The Times

Wales/2011/10mins/advised 12A. Dir: Matt Mullins. With Brian Hibbard, Rebecca Knowles, James Ashton.

Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife, invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine’s birthday and kick-start the holiday. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their friend Ludo is hurt in a serious accident. The eagerly anticipated holiday leads each of the friends to raise the little veils that they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretenses become increasingly hard to keep up until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all...

Unrelated Films present the premiere of their new short film. Directed by Matt Mullins and written by Simon Howells, Score is a dark, atmospheric tale of dependence. It will be accompanied by Have You Seen, the company’s 2010 Virgin Media Shorts entry, a comedy about a mysterious entity lurking in the woods.

After losing their family home in Algeria, three brothers become scattered across the globe. Messaoud joins the French army fighting in Indochina; Abdelkader becomes a leader of the Algerian independence movement in France and Saïd moves to Paris to make his fortune in the shady clubs and boxing halls of Pigalle. As Abdelkader and Messaoud become more and more zealous in their quest for justice, they reunite in Paris, where their paths diverge towards radical politics and violent crime. Rachid Bouchareb’s Oscar-nominated follow up to Days of Glory (Indigènes), has a grand, sweeping feel, not dissimilar to The Godfather or Once Upon a Time in America. Double CL1C

The most fun film at last year’s Cannes was this emotionally uplifting documentary about a group of disabled street musicians from Kinshasa. Although they live on the streets, staying sane by making music that mixes rumba, reggae, blues and funk, they dream of being the most famous African band in the world while rehearsing in the zoo, the only quiet place they can find. Their music, humour, spirit and resilience in the face of repeated setbacks make for a truly inspiring story that would be unbelievable if it weren’t true. A total joy that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face and hope in your heart!

The Silent House Fri 13 + Sat 14 May • Gwe 13 + Sad 14 Mai Uruguay/2010/86mins/subtitled/15. Dir: Gustavo Hernandez. With Florencia Colucci, Abel Tripaldi, Gustavo Alonso.

Causing a stir at Cannes last year, this one-take horror tells the gripping story of Laura and her father, who are renovating their secluded cottage so that they can put it up for sale. Everything seems to be going smoothly until Laura hears a sound that gets louder and louder in the upper floor of the house. Her father goes up to see what’s going on, but when he doesn’t return she must go and investigate for herself…

“a smart, scary film and a technical tour de force with its own skin-crawling atmosphere of fear” — The Guardian

Rubber Fri 27 + Sat 28 May • Gwe 27 + Sad 28 Mai USA/2010/82mins/15. Dir: Quentin Dupieux. With Stephen Spinella, Jack Plotnick.

When Robert, an inanimate tyre, discovers he has destructive telepathic powers, he soon sets his sights on a desert town; in particular, a mysterious woman who becomes his obsession. This comedy-horror-sci-fi with a post-apocalyptic sensibility was one of the most talked about films after its screening at Cannes and, as far as serial killer films go, it certainly takes a road less travelled.

Armadillo Mon 23 — Thu 26 May • Llun 23 — Iau 26 Mai Denmark/2010/105mins/15. Dir: Janus Metz Pedersen.

When Grierson Award-winning director Janus Metz arrives in Afghanistan with a group of young soldiers on their first tour of duty, they are stationed on the Helmand frontline in Camp Armadillo. The platoon fights increasingly fierce battles with an enemy that is nearby but rarely seen and Metz captures life on the frontline with an uncompromising and intense vision, bearing witness to the realities of the combat zone. As the fighting intensifies, the effect of modern warfare is gradually realised as exhaustion, fear and adrenaline set in. Gripping, thought provoking and visceral, this is as close as you get to battle action from the edge of your seat.

When new owners take over the luxury N’Djamena hotel resort in Chad, ageing former swimming champion Adam is forced to give up his job to his son Abdel. With his country in the throes of a civil war and the government demanding money or volunteers old enough to fight the rebels, humiliated and now penniless, he is forced to contribute to the ‘war effort’, and commit a terrible act of betrayal. Burning with a slow intensity, this is a quietly powerful parable about life in contemporary Africa which won the jury prize at Cannes.

UK/1924/108mins/U. Dir: Herbert G Ponting. With Robert Falcon Scott, Herbert G Ponting.

A hundred years ago the British Antarctic Expedition led by Captain Scott set out on its illfated race to the South Pole. Official photographer and cinematographer Herbert Ponting filmed almost every aspect of the expedition: the scientific work, life in camp and the local wildlife. Most importantly, he recorded the preparations for the assault on the Pole — from the trials of the sledges to clothing and cooking equipment — giving us a real sense of the challenges faced. In 1924 he re-edited the fooatge into this remarkable feature. The BFI National Archive has restored the film and introduced a new score by Simon Fisher Turner. + On Sun 22 May, this film will be accompanied by a very special film from the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales: The Welsh Himalayan Expedition

UK/USA/2007/81mins/PG. Dir: Werner Herzog. With Brad Dourif.

A group of astronauts cannot return to an uninhabitable Earth and are lost in space, looking for an alternative home. The film is narrated by an alien (Brad Dourif) telling us all about his home planet, where the atmosphere is composed of liquid helium and the sky frozen. Using unique, beautiful, and unseen footage, with access to the five astronauts responsible for the Galileo-mission, Herzog has created a spectacular vision of imagery, sound, music and human emotion.

Green Fri 20 May • Gwe 20 Mai France/2009/48mins/ctba. Dir: Patrick Rouxel.

Sydney Wignall set off from Llandudno on a climbing expedition to the Himalayas in 1955. His group was captured and interrogated before being abandoned in an inhospitable Himalayan pass. Sydney also took a film camera with him on the trip, and the resulting footage is a captivating account of the long and rewarding journey.

Green is an orangutan who is a victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This awardwinning documentary takes you on an emotional journey through her final days. NB: contains scenes that some viewers may find distressing. + Cardiff-based author and wildlife photographer Andy Rouse joins us to talk about his experiences with orang-utans in Borneo plus some of his work with mountain gorillas and Bengal tigers. Andy’s new book ‘Gorillas’ features his trade-mark ‘up-close’ style of photography with some of the worlds most fascinating and potentially dangerous animals.

Japan/USA/1954/96mins/PG. Dir. Ishiro Honda. With Raymond Burr, Takashi Shimura.

This eye-opening documentary tells the story of one of the greatest problems of our age — our love affair with meat and dairy.

While filming the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand fell to earth in a helicopter accident. He had no fear of dying but was filled with thoughts of home, and it was this that formed the inspiration for this film. With stunning aerial footage and a voiceover littered with persuasive facts and figures, this is a wonderful depiction of how the Earth’s problems are all interlinked.

Every day the world over, large amounts of radioactive waste are placed in interim storage vulnerable to disasters and societal changes. In Finland the world’s first permanent repository is being hewn out of solid rock, a huge system of underground tunnels that must last 100,000 years.

Werner Herzog meets the odd men and women in Antarctica who have dedicated their lives to furthering the cause of science.

Submarine Fri 27 May — Thu 2 June • Gwe 27 Mai — Iau 2 Mehefin UK/2010/94mins/15. Dir: Richard Ayoade. With Craig Roberts, Sally Hawkins, Noah Taylor, Paddy Considine.

Oliver Tate has two main objectives: to lose his virginity to the girl of his dreams before his 16th birthday and to stop his mother from leaving his father for her new-age next door neighbour. All of this while trying desperately to grow up in Swansea, as the love of his life introduces him to low level pyromania and dictates to him what he should be writing about her in his diary. Richard Ayoade’s (Nathan Barley, IT Crowd) delightful directorial debut is based on Joe Dunthorne’s critically-lauded novel, detailing the trials, tribulations and range of inappropriate affectations of this deliciously awkward young man.

“On this evidence, Ayoade could be Britain’s answer to Wes Anderson.” — Total Film

My Dog Tulip Fri 27 May — Thu 2 June • Gwe 27 Mai — Iau 2 Mehefin USA/2009/83mins/ctba. Dir: Paul Fierlinger, Sandra Ferlinger. With: Christopher Plummer, Lynne Redgrave, Isabella Rossellini, Werner Herzog.

This beautifully animated film is a bittersweet account of author J. R. Ackerley’s 16-year relationship with his German shepherd dog. The distinguished man of letters hardly thought of himself as a dog lover until he came to adopt Tulip, who turned out to be the love of his life. In vivid and sometimes startling detail, the film reveals Tulip’s sassy, often erratic behaviour and Ackerley’s fumbling but determined efforts to ensure an existence of perfect happiness for her. Featuring Werner Herzog (The Wild Blue Yonder, Encounters At The End Of The World — see p32/33) in a completely different guise, this is a profound and subtle meditation on the strangeness that lies at the heart of all relationships.

Babies Mon 30 + Tue 31 May • Llun 30 + Maw 31 Mai France/2010/79mins/subtitled/U. Dir: Thomas Balmes. With Baya, Hattie, Mari.

A look at one year in the lives of four babies from around the world — from Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco and Tokyo; from birth to their first steps. Award-winning director Thomas Balmes seeks to re-define the non-fiction art form with this documentary, which joyfully captures the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

Edward Scissorhands Sat 7 May • Sad 7 Mai USA/1990/105mins/12A. Dir: Tim Burton. With Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Vincent Price.

This is the magical tale of an uncommonly gentle young man who falls in love with a beautiful girl. But life’s never straight forward. When his beloved inventor (the inimitable Vincent Price — see p22) dies before he can put the finishing touches to Edward, he’s left with metal scissors for hands which Edward and the local community find a mixed blessing.

“Visually, stylistically and emotionally stunning.” — Film4

Shop open: Tue — Sat 10am-8pm, Sun 2-8pm. Closed Monday

We’re welcoming several new stockists to The Shop this month including Newcastle-based Dolls and Molls, whose ‘quirky jewellery to make you smile’ is inspired by creator Emily’s fondness for antique curiosities, vintage glamour and childhood memories. With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’ve ordered a mighty number of Dynomighty wallets — tear-resistant, water-resistant, expandable and recyclable — perfect for active dads! And why not wrap your wallets in Evergreen’s eco, reusable wrapping paper — the gift that just keeps on giving. Local favourite I Loves the Diff put their own spin on the penguin classics designs with titles such as ‘Canton a Hot Tin Roof’ and ‘Treforest Gump’; and we can’t wait to get our hands on Petra Boase’s vintage-inspired greeting cards, delicate Japanese paper balloons and kitschy animal notepads that are sure to go down a treat with children and adults alike.

Keep an eye out for one of our lovely specials — griddled asparagus topped with sweet balsamic, parsley and pecorino cheese. Look out towards the end of the month for details of our yummy summer menu. We’re going to be introducing salad specials this year, which will change every month until September.

Maibock Beer Festival Thu 26 – Sat 28 May • Iau 26 – Sad 28 Mai Once again we’re celebrating all that is good in German beer with our annual Maibock extravaganza. Throughout the weekend, our temporary festival bar serves up a huge range of German beers, specially selected and imported direct from the brewers, to give you a taste of what this great brewing nation has to offer. While a traditional maibock beer is a light helles lager, brewed to a bock strength of around 6.3% to 7.4% ABV, our range includes both dark and light beers and weisse beers, at a range of strengths, so you’re certain to find something to satisfy the beer drinker in you!
