THE FUTURE’S NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Darren Almond, Matt Bryans, Susan Hiller, Jeremy Millar, Patricia Piccinini, Marjetica Potrč, Amie Siegel, Monika Sosnowska Curated by Deborah Smith Fri 21 September — Sun 4 November Our latest exhibition features ten international artists exploring the concepts of past, present and future. Using a range of media, the artists present multiple perspectives of their changing landscape, encouraging us to define and redefine our own relationships to the world. Susan Hiller, Vernon Ah Kee and Tony Albert give voice to indigenous cultures in the hope that we learn from the past; Marjetica Portč and Monika Sosnowska’s architectural and sculptural works investigate the poetics and politics of space; Amie Siegel and Jeremy Millar explore how events in history resonate with our understanding and experience of the present; Patricia Piccinini engages us with the changing nature of our environment; Darren Almond and Matt Bryans mark, manipulate and erase time. This exhibition has been supported by the Henry Moore Foundation and Queensland Government through the Indigenous Arts Marketing and Export Agency (QIAMEA). Additional sponsorship has been provided by GB-Sol and City Satellite.
Hannah Firth Head of Visual & Live Arts We’re pleased to have been included as one of the key venues for Cardiff Contemporary - a city-wide initiative that showcases the wealth of visual art and design activity that Cardiff has to offer. More information about events throughout the autumn can be found at www.cardiffcontemporary.co.uk.
Vernon Ah Kee: theendoflivingandthe beginningofsurvival
Tooth & Clawr
In 1854 the United States government offered to ‘buy’ a large area of Indian land; in return they promised a ‘reservation’ for the Indian people. Vernon Ah Kee’s light box commission references Chief Seattle’s profound response to this offer. His work also comments on the social and political inequalities that continue to confront Australia’s indigenous people today. Vernon Ah Kee was born in 1967 in Innisfail, Queensland, and is of the Kuku Yalandji, Waanji, Yidinji and Gugu Yimithirr peoples. He now lives and works in Brisbane. Ah Kee’s work is primarily a critique of Australian popular culture, specifically the Black/ White dichotomy. Commissioned as part of The Future’s Not What It Used To Be (see p5).

Phil Collins This Unfortunate Thing Between Us Sat 6 October — Sun 13 January Outside our entrance two second–hand caravans are hosting the UK premiere of Phil Collins’ video installation based on his recent eponymous performance. Originally presented in 2011 at the Hebbel am Ufer theatre in Berlin and on German public television, This Unfortunate Thing Between Us consists of two live broadcasts. Hosted by a crew of actors and porn workers, and featuring live music by Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl, This Unfortunate Thing Between Us follows the logic and grammar of the teleshopping channel, including pitches, sales and phone–ins. Instead of commodities, viewers are offered a choice of experiences at promotional prices. Providing an opportunity to face up to our contemporary desires and fears, TUTBU TV brings together a live audience and home viewers for a glimpse of what may well prove to be the future of consumerism. Phil Collins’ films, photographs, installations, and live events often use elements of low–budget television and the entertainment industry to dissect the political and aesthetic implications of popular visual formats. His collaborators have ranged from former teachers of Marxism in the GDR and anti–fascist skinheads in Malaysia, to fans of The Smiths that span three continents and disco–dancing Palestinians. Presented at Chapter as part of Artes Mundi 5. For more information about Artes Mundi, the shortlisted artists or the exhibition at National Museum Cardiff visit www.artesmundi.org
Biography Phil Collins is based in Berlin and Cologne, where he is a professor of video art at the Kunsthochschule für Medien. Recent solo exhibitions include Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2012); British Film Institute, London (2011); Tramway, Glasgow (2009). Group exhibitions include Revolution vs. Revolution, Beirut Art Center and Hors Pistes 2012, Centre Pompidou, Paris (both 2012); Museum der Wünsche, MUMOK, Vienna; Berlin 2000-20011, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo; and Ostalgia, New Museum, New York (all 2011); as well as biennales in Singapore (2011), Berlin (2010), Turner Prize (2006) and Istanbul (2005). Collins’ films have been shown at international film festivals, including Rotterdam, Oberhausen, and Berlin. His works are held in significant public collections such as, among others, Tate, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
Open: Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday 12-6pm; Thursday & Friday 12-8pm; closed Monday

THEATRE “The humour, the creativity, the imagination… I loved it” audience feedback (Teifi Emerald)
Recent investment in satellite broadcast technology in our cinema has opened the door to a whole raft of exciting opportunities. One of these is the screening of National Theatre Live (see p15) where you become part of the live theatre experience on London’s South Bank. It’s a thrilling new medium and one that I’m delighted Chapter is able to be a part of. Enjoy!

Heavy with the responsibility of caring for his broken mum and her baby and pining for a past of Panda Pops, eggy bread and Brian Clough, Mark knows he has to do something drastic. But will he make the chilling choice that will change things forever? An achingly honest portrayal of a boy struggling to find his place in a world that doesn’t want him, Bones will break your heart, spit you out and then make you wonder why you cared in the first place.

Mon 1 Oct 8pm
What is design? Is the concept tied too closely to notions of form and function, of producing smart, novel things? Does it lead to the big ethical questions of how to live well, or how we ought to live, questions which it is unreasonable to expect any one designer to answer.

The Last of the Haussmans Thu 11 Oct 7pm
165mins. With Julie Walters, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory.
Stephen Beresford’s new play is a funny, touching and at times savage portrait of a family full of longing that’s losing its grip. Following an operation, high society drop-out Judy Haussman is joined by her family in her dilapidated Art Deco house on the Devon coast. Together they share a few sweltering months as they alternately cling to and flee this louche and chaotic world of allday drinking, infatuations, long-held resentments, free love and failure. £15/£10
Timon of Athens Thu 1 Nov 7pm
150mins. With Simon Russell Beale.
Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful, Timon of Athens showers gifts and hospitality on the city’s elite. He vastly outspends his resources but when he calls upon his erstwhile associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. Timon withdraws to a literal and emotional wasteland, pouring ever more surreal curses on a morally bankrupt Athens. Part of the World Shakespeare Festival, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company for London 2012 Festival. £15/£10

Fri 21 Sept — Thu 11 Oct
UK/2012/130mins/12A. Dir: Joe Wright. With Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson, Jude Law, Kelly Macdonald.
Trapped in a loveless marriage to a government official, Anna falls passionately in love with the young Vronsky, setting in motion a chain of events that leads to her downfall. Joe Wright transports us to the twilight days of imperialist Russia in this classic tale of hypocrisy, jealousy, family duty, destiny and desire. + Our free Adaptations film and literature group meets after the screening on Thu 27 Sept to discuss the film and associated novel by Tolstoy. Please book tickets from the box office.
Fri 21 Sept — Thu 4 Oct
USA/2012/115mins/18. Dir: John Hillcoat. With Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke, Jessica Chastain.
This epic gangster tale is based on the true story of the Bondurant Brothers, the infamous bootlegging siblings from Prohibition-era Virginia, whose loyalty is put to the test by the highly unusual methods employed by Special Agent Charlie Rakes.
Fri 28 Sept — Thu 4 Oct
UK/2012/80mins/PG. Dir: Hugh and Anson Hartford. With Les D’Arcy, Terry Donlon, Lisa Modlich.
89-year-old Les D’Arcy is headed to Inner Mongolia to compete in the over 80s Table Tennis Championships. But he’s considered a spring chicken by others at the tournament, including 100 year old Dorothy DeLow, a mega celebrity in this rarefied world. The film is as much about the tenacity of the human spirit as it is about taking home the medal, with intimate and candid portraits of life back home exploring the hope, regret and immediacy of growing old.
Fri 28 Sept — Thu 4 Oct
USA/2012/84mins/12A. Dir: Jason Cohn, Bill Jersey. Narrated by James Franco.
The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, graphics, games, films and toys. This documentary also takes a look at their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life.
Chapter MovieMaker Mon 1 Oct
A regular showcase for short films by independent filmmakers. FREE (Please reserve tickets in advance.)
Bad Film Club: Crocodile Dundee in LA Sun 7 Oct
Australia/USA/2001/92mins/PG. Dir: Simon Wincer. With Paul Hogan, Linda Kozlowski.
Nicko and Joe lend their irreverent live commentary to another classic from their terrible movie vault. You remember Mick Dundee, the guy who hunts crocodiles and has a big knife? Well now he’s in LA! And he’s taken along very little of the drama and not much of the comedy of his original film.
Hysteria Fri 5 — Thu 18 Oct
UK/2012/99mins/15. Dir: Tanya Wexler. With Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Maggie Gyllenhall.
Looking for a cure for what was commonly described as hysteria in women, late 19th century physician Mortimer Granville set about creating the world’s first electromechanical vibrator — all in the name of medical science. This breezy and often cheeky comedy sets the notion of the doctor’s blissful ‘cure’ against the ideals of Gyllenhall’s Suffragette who believes the true path to women’s happiness lies in education and self-sufficiency.

Fri 5 — Tue 9 Oct
USA/2012/99mins/15. Dir: Bart Layton. With Adam O’Brian, Frederic Bourdin, Carey Gibson.
Part documentary, part stylized visualisation, this chilling film chronicles the story of a 13-year-old boy who disappears from Texas in 1994 and is found three years later in southern Spain with a story of kidnapping and torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home, but all is not quite as it seems. Why does he now have a strange accent? Why does he look so different? Any why doesn’t the family seem to notice these glaring inconsistencies? It’s only when an investigator starts asking questions that this strange tale takes an even stranger turn.
To Rome With Love Fri 5 — Thu 18 Oct
USA/2012/112mins/12A. Dir: Woody Allen. With Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Penelope Cruz.
Woody Allen’s latest kaleidoscopic comedy presents four charming stories about romance, fame, legacy and longing.

After a long absence, Ulysses Pick arrives home to a house haunted with memories, towing the body of a teenage girl and a bound and gagged young man. His gang waits inside and there’s friction in the ranks. But Ulysses is focused on one thing: journeying through the house, room by room, and reaching his wife Hyacinth in her bedroom. Master of the peculiar and darkly humorous, Guy Maddin’s beautiful fever dream is a compelling watch.
Sun 14 + Tue 16 Oct
Canada/2007/80mins/12A. Dir: Guy Maddin. With Darcy Fehr, Ann Savage, Amy Stewart.
Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood and do things differently? B-movie icon Ann Savage plays a domineering mother attempting to answer that question. Maddin’s strange and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown is an inventive blend of local and personal history, surrealist images and metaphorical myths.
The Saddest Music in The World Sun 21 + Tue 23 Oct
Canada/2003/100mins/15. Dir: Guy Maddin. With Isabella Rossellini, Mark McKinney, Maria de Medeiros.
During the Great Depression, Winnipeg is declared ‘the world capital of sorrow’ so the glamorous local brewer, double-amputee Lady Port-Huntly, sets a contest to find the saddest music in the world. Featuring a screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro, Maddin’s beguiling and hallucinatory black-and-white musical delves into a past that never was.
Dracula: Pages From A Virgin’s Diary Sun 28 + Tue 30 Oct
Canada/2004/73mins/12A. Dir: Guy Maddin. With Wei-Qiang Zhang, Brent Neale, Cindy Marie Small.
Maddin’s sumptuous feast of dance, drama and shadow transposes Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s interpretation of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire yarn from stage to screen. The tale of the sinister but intriguing immigrant who preys on young English women is presented in a style reminiscent of the silent expressionistic cinema of the early 20th Century.
Keyhole (top), Dracula (bottom)
From ballet-filled takes on the Dracula story to pseudo-autobiographical tales of growing up in Winnipeg, Guy Maddin’s unique style can thrill, amuse and perplex. We’re celebrating the release of his latest surreal, black and white melodrama Keyhole, with this short season.

Painting an intimate portrait of the legendary fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar who was dubbed the “High Priestess of Fashion”, this documentary reveals the high-drama of her career, her personal history, vulnerabilities and steely determination. Vreeland’s own eloquent voice guides us through her life, unveiling the vivid personality of an innovator who reinvented style.
Fri 19 — 25 Oct
Germany/2012/105mins/subtitled/ctba. Dir: Christian Petzhold. With Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Rainer Bock.

Killing Them Softly Fri 19 Oct — Thu 1 Nov
USA/2012/97mins/18. Dir: Andrew Dominik. With Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini.
This down-and-dirty thriller unfolds in post-hurricane New Orleans, a city in pieces, caught in the midst of a recession-induced crime wave. Two dreamy, low ranking gangsters bite off more than they can chew when they take on a mob boss and find two hired killers on their tail. This fast-paced and darkly comic drama shows a morally bankrupt society dripping with corruption and hypocrisy from the top down. A grimy, third film from writer-director Dominik teams him once again with Assassination of Jesse James actor Brad Pitt, offering him a deliciously wicked career-defining role.

Comedy and LGBT Film Sat 13 Oct
For decades, if not centuries, gay people have been the butt (no pun intended) of many jokes.

Elliot Loves Sat 13 Oct

The Upsetter: The Life And Music of Lee Scratch Perry Fri 19 Oct
USA/2008/95mins/ctba. Dir: Ethan Higbee, Adam Bhala Lough. Narrated by Benicio Del Toro.
Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry helped to invent a genre of music in the 1950s that would come to be called Reggae and Dub. He mentored a young Bob Marley, worked with Paul McCartney and the Clash and gained international recognition as an experimental solo artist and producer. Despite the gang warfare back home, the ensuing extortion, a marriage break up, alcohol and drug addiction and his studio burning to the ground, Scratch remained a key figure in music and returned at the age of 70 for a world tour. A fascinating study of one man, and an entire music scene.
