Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film, part documentary and part cinematic art, follows city life in the Soviet Union through the course of a single day. It’s a celebration of modern life - a brave new world? – with thriving industries and crowded streets. But it is also a remarkable film about making a film: as one team of cameramen uses daring and pioneering techniques to film the action, another team films the first team! Laurène Durantel, the dynamic and creative double bass player from Sheffield’s resident chamber group Ensemble 360, presents a new soundtrack to this film that also draws on her additional skills as a pianist and vocalist. Introduced by Craig Brandist, Professor of Cultural Theory and Intellectual History at the University of Sheffield. Professor Brandist has spent much of his career working on Revolutionary Russia and the Soviet Union and teaches European Cinema and Russian Culture in the School of Languages and Cultures. “Never had I known that these mechanical noises could be arranged to sound so beautiful. Mr. Dziga Vertov is a musician.” Charlie Chaplin A joint event between Music in the Round and the University of Sheffield Festival of Arts and Humanities.

£20 In Advance (Age 14+) Join German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn for an evening of Teutonic jolliness at its best. After his last show tackled those wellknown staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else.

Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film, part documentary and part cinematic art, follows city life in the Soviet Union through the course of a single day. It’s a celebration of modern life - a brave new world? – with thriving industries and crowded streets. But it is also a remarkable film about making a film: as one team of cameramen uses daring and pioneering techniques to film the action, another team films the first team! Laurène Durantel, the dynamic and creative double bass player from Sheffield’s resident chamber group Ensemble 360, presents a new soundtrack to this film that also draws on her additional skills as a pianist and vocalist. Introduced by Craig Brandist, Professor of Cultural Theory and Intellectual History at the University of Sheffield. Professor Brandist has spent much of his career working on Revolutionary Russia and the Soviet Union and teaches European Cinema and Russian Culture in the School of Languages and Cultures. “Never had I known that these mechanical noises could be arranged to sound so beautiful.

Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film, part documentary and part cinematic art, follows city life in the Soviet Union through the course of a single day. It’s a celebration of modern life - a brave new world? – with thriving industries and crowded streets. But it is also a remarkable film about making a film: as one team of cameramen uses daring and pioneering techniques to film the action, another team films the first team! Laurène Durantel, the dynamic and creative double bass player from Sheffield’s resident chamber group Ensemble 360, presents a new soundtrack to this film that also draws on her additional skills as a pianist and vocalist. Introduced by Craig Brandist, Professor of Cultural Theory and Intellectual History at the University of Sheffield. Professor Brandist has spent much of his career working on Revolutionary Russia and the Soviet Union and teaches European Cinema and Russian Culture in the School of Languages and Cultures. “Never had I known that these mechanical noises could be arranged to sound so beautiful. Mr. Dziga Vertov is a musician.” Charlie Chaplin A joint event between Music in the Round and the University of Sheffield Festival of Arts and Humanities. For more details about Music in the Round’s festival celebrating Russian classical music (5-13 May 2017), please visit musicintheround.co.uk

£20 In Advance (Age 14+) Join German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn for an evening of Teutonic jolliness at its best. After his last show tackled those wellknown staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else.

Hire Sheffield Students' Union

F

ilm Unit is the award winning independent cinema located in the Sheffield Students’ Union. Founded in 1949, we are a group of cinema lovers who desire to provide entertainment, to be not for profit, and to promote film as an art form. We screen a selection of films on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time, with the cheapest ticket price in Yorkshire. We specially curate our programme with blockbusters, independent, foreign, family and classic cinema, to ensure we provide something for everyone. For us, cinema should be for everyone, so all our standard screenings are open to the public, our matinee screenings are Hard of Hearing friendly with subtitles and this semester we are hosting a special Autism-friendly screening of Lego Batman. We’re hosting two very special free screenings of I, Daniel Blake in association with Unite the Union and on April Fools’ Day, we’re holding a hilarious Fools Festival of British Comedy Cinema. We are volunteer-run so if you’d like to get involved, please get in touch.— www.filmunit.org.uk
