Welcome to the 13th Inverness Film Festival For the 13th year of our festival I decided we would take a look at people who are brave enough to move away from their comfort zones and embark on an adventure, whether that be by choice or circumstance. We open the festival with the Scottish premiere of Brooklyn which sees Saoirse Ronan leaving her home in rural Ireland in the 1950s to begin a new life in America. Malala Yousafzai was forced to leave Pakistan after being the focus of a Taliban attack after speaking out about the right for young girls to be educated, her journey to Nobel laureate is told in He Named Me Malala. Viggo Mortensen plays a French teacher in Algeria during the revolution with France who is made to transport a Muslim prisoner across impossible terrain in the powerful Far From Men. In Pawn Sacrifice a troubled Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) takes on the might of both Cold War superpowers in order to challenge the best the Soviet Empire has to offer at chess, a wonderful analogy of the Cold War itself. There are many other human journeys in the festival too, I hope that you enjoy travelling with them Something a little different and a first for us is a screening that requires blindfolds and headphones. Carnival of Souls is an experimental horror 3D binaural audio experience which creates a sense of intimate proximity that immerses you in the drama. It was inspired by the experiences of blind cinemagoers and promises to be really interesting. As always please remember to vote for our Audience Award. We don't have jury's or committees for our Award, the winner is completely up to you. Designed by Hebrides based artist Steve Dilworth, we take great pride in knowing that a little piece of our festival has taken up residence in all corners of the globe. I hope that you enjoy the festival, and please do let me know what you think.

Paul MacDonald-Taylor, Festival Director PS You will note that some of the screenings are certified ‘IFF’ rather than the conventional BBFC certificates. This just means that at the time of publication, the BBFC hadn’t given the film a certificate – so we‘ve made our best guess. If you are unsure as to the age suitability of any screening, please ask the Box Office staff, or visit the Inverness Film Festival website for up to date information.

HE NAMED ME MALALA

From the age of 10, Malala Yousafzai has campaigned for the rights of girls to receive an education. Using a pseudonym, she wrote a blog for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule and her views on promoting education for girls. In October 2012, the then 15-year-old Malala was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot while traveling home on her school bus. Miraculously she survived. Malala, who turned eighteen this year, is now a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the Co-Founder of The Malala Fund, a non-profit organisation whose work around the world focuses on the rights of girls to quality education. He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of this extraordinary young girl’s life. PG I

CLOSER TO THE MOON

SCOTTISH PREMIERE

Bucharest; 1959. Anti-Semitism is on the rise. During a New Year’s Eve party in a whorehouse, five high-ranking Jewish members of the Romanian Communist Party decide to form a gang and pull off an audacious act of political agitation. Posing as a movie crew, they manage to pull off the crime of the century – holding up the Romanian National Bank by making it look like they were shooting a film. But what comes next is even more unbelievable when the group is handed down a punishment more absurd than the crime itself. Based on a bizarre true story, this dark comedy drama is a breath of fresh air.

PAWN SACRIFICE

Bobby Fischer was the most brilliant chess player in history. A grandmaster at 15 and world champion at 29. He was a genius tactician and ruthless competitor. He was also a paranoid who had the fillings in his teeth removed because he thought the Soviet Union was transmitting damaging rays into his brain. In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Fischer finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire. Pawn Sacrifice chronicles Fischer’s terrifying struggles with genius and madness, and the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world. 12A I

THE WITCH SCOTTISH PREMIERE

New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, a farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his family to a remote plot of land. Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately. Animals turn malevolent, crops fail and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways. Writer/director Robert Eggers’ debut feature, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival painstakingly recreates a God-fearing New England decades before the 1692 Salem witch trials. The Witch is a chilling and groundbreaking new take on the genre. Please Note: Audiences will be asked not to take cameras, phones or bags into the screening.

OUR LITTLE SISTER UMIMACHI DIARY SCOTTISH PREMIERE

The latest family drama from Japanese master Hirokazu Koreeda (I Wish, 2012 Inverness Film Festival), Our Little Sister sees the veteran director revisiting familiar subjects of family, love and cooking, all delivered in his tender and understated cinematic style. This beautifully crafted family drama tells the story of three sisters who live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their absent father dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral. There they meet and take under their wing a teenage half-sibling they never knew. All told, the patience of the filmmaking is pretty remarkable, a feat of embroidery slowly taking shape, and it inspires a corresponding faith in the willing viewer – it’s an invitation to sit back and settle in for one of Koreeda’s loveliest films.

LEARNING TO DRIVE

Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew. Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley star in this feel-good, coming of (middle) age comedy about a mismatched pair who help each other overcome life’s road blocks.

GÜEROS

SCOTTISH PREMIERE

Güeros is a road movie in which the travellers barely manage to leave town. A coming of age comedy which pays homage to the French New Wave. Being a somewhat unusual film, Güeros begins with a rather different kind of explosion: a water bomb bursts in a baby stroller. It is thrown by teenager Tomás from a block of flats. Since the lad is clearly too much of a handful for his mother, she packs him off to stay with his big brother who is studying in Mexico City. Tomás brings a cassette along with him; the tape is part of his father’s legacy and contains the music of Epigmenio Cruz. When the trio learns that their idol is in hospital fading fast and alone, they set off in their rusty heap of a car to pay their last respects to this one-time rock star. Best First Feature, Berlin International Film Festival 2014. Winner Best Cinematography Tribeca Film Festival 2014. Winner of 5 Mexican Ariel Academy Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.

RUINED HEART:

ANOTHER LOVE STORY BETWEEN A CRIMINAL AND A WHORE Somewhere in Manila, a crime boss rules with an iron fist. He uses religion and violence to stay in power. What superstition and razzle dazzle don’t accomplish, his goons do. To his most loyal henchman he gives the task of guarding his woman, who is headstrong and impulsive, and often gets into trouble. Before long, she falls in love with the henchman, and the star-crossed lovers decide to leave town. But it is while on the run that they finally get to know each other for the first time… Filmed over 24 hours by Christopher Doyle – one of the greatest artists in cinema – in six different locations in Metro Manila, Ruined Heart is an orgy of sex, violence and crime and has a banging soundtrack at its core.

D O C U M E N TA R Y FROM CALIGARI TO HITLER: GERMAN CINEMA IN THE AGE OF THE MASSES

SCOTTISH PREMIERE

IFF 15+ I

The Weimar Republic (1918 to 1933), was the freest state on German soil; a wild era characterized by disruption, crisis and cultural brilliance. It was also the most important period of German cinema, a time full of wonders and invention. The aesthetic foundations were laid for the “seventh art”; Weimar’s directors like Murnau, Lang, Lubitsch, Pabst, Wilder, Sternberg and Ruttmann are still legendary today, their stars Marlene Dietrich, Louise Brooks, Emil Jannings and Conrad Veidt are unforgotten, and films like Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, Metropolis, M, People on Sunday, Berlin. Symphony of a Metropolis and Blue Angel unfold their unique aura.

STEVE MCQUEEN: THE MAN & LE MANS In May 1970, Steve McQueen, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars as well as being arguably the coolest man on the planet, flew to France to begin work on the film that meant more to him than any other... Le Mans. He began by filming in and around the actual race, capturing priceless footage. Visually it all looked amazing but coming up with a compelling narrative around the racing SCOTTISH PREMIERE action proved to be less Steve’s thing and the production began to encounter many difficulties. Steve had wanted this to be the greatest racing movie of all time but the end result was a commercial and critical flop and his career was never quite the same afterwards. This fascinating documentary is the story of how one of the most volatile, charismatic stars of his generation, who seemingly lost so much he held dear in the pursuit of his dream, nevertheless followed it to the end. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting. STEVE MCQUEEN 15 I

CLASSIC BRITISH CINEMA A great comedy is very, very hard to find. There was a time when comedies came easily to British cinema; Ealing being a prime example of how to do comedy perfectly. So, with that in mind we thought why not celebrate British comedies of the past during the festival. We’ve chosen three films, all of which have been lovingly restored and are certain to make you laugh and remember just how funny people like Terry-Thomas, Joyce Grenfell, Alistair Sim and Peter Sellers really were.

CLAVEL James Robert Sinclair was born in 1930 in the ben (the 'good') end of the croft house at Clavel on the South Mainland of Shetland. He has lived there all his life. As he grew older the crofthouse fell into disrepair. Following a stay in hospital, James Robert reluctantly moved to sheltered housing in the nearby village of Bigton, but James Robert needs to be at Clavel to be happy. Following him through the ‘sheep’ year this film is a study of a man, his way of life and those who help him live it. The music was written and performed by Shetland musicians Alice Mullay and Jonathan Ritch. The song Dagalien was sung by men from Bigton who have known James Robert all their lives. Following Clavel Shona Main will introduce screenings of A Crofter’s Life in Shetland and Jenny's Arctic Diary by Scottish film-maker Jenny Gilbertson – on whom Shona is currently researching a book.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS When I place my hand on your shoulder, I need you to be breathing.

A new, unique adaptation of director Herk Harvey’s 1962 experimental horror film oddity, Carnival of Souls has been stripped and adapted to become an audio-only experience inside a darkened cinema, inspired by classical adventure radio serials and sensory deprivation methods. Commissioned by Film Hub North West Central with an advisory group of blind and partially sighted audience members, the broadcast is relayed across wireless headsets incorporating binaural audio – a technique that creates the illusion of the action happening to and around the listener. From approaching footsteps to whispered breath, you will be fully immersed in the unfolding drama. Please Note: This performance takes place in near-total darkness IFF 12+ I
