welcome to

Chichester Cinema As I write this, we are coming to the end of the first week of the 26th Chichester International Film Festival. The Open Air Screenings at Priory Park were outstanding, with 1,000 patrons attending ‘Cars 3’ and ‘Dirty Dancing’, the latter becoming a true celebration of film, with singing, dancing and some great 1950’s outfits. The refurbishment of the auditorium is almost complete. Together with the invaluable help and support of Alli and Patrick from the New Park Centre, as well as the two Boards of Trustees (Cinema and Centre), we have presented this wonderful Community and Arts Centre, with a beautiful, comfortable auditorium, matching the film programme that we endeavour to present.

New Seating Plan - Pg47

There are some small details which we are still taking care of, but the major visible works have been completed. From September 11 to 20, the main air conditioning system will be replaced. Screenings will still take place in the evenings, but please check our film listings during these two weeks, as it will be a reduced programme. Our sincere thanks go out to everyone who contributed to this refurbishment. If you purchased a raffle ticket, attended our Film Quiz, or just paid for a film ticket over the last two years – we thank you. It is you who have made this dream possible. See you at the Cinema

Writer/director Sofia Coppola delivers an atmospheric thriller set at a Southern girls’ boarding school during the American Civil War. The lives of these sheltered young women from Virginia, are turned upside down when they take in John McBurney (Colin Farrell), an injured enemy Union soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events. In 1971, Don Siegel’s ‘The Beguiled’ starred Clint Eastwood as the wounded Yankee, this time, Coppola has returned to Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 source novel and modified the story’s focus. This time, the events are viewed from the perspective of the headmistress (Nicole Kidman) and her cast of female teachers and students (including Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning).

Diane Keaton plays an American in London who falls for Brendan Gleeson’s homeless curmudgeon in this romantic comedy. A widow whose adult son Philip (James Norton) has long flown the nest, Emily (Keaton) works in a charity second-hand store but lives in an apartment across the street from Hampstead Heath. Emily can’t quite face the idea of selling up and downsizing, although her snobby friend (Lesley Manville), has tried to help by fixing her up on a blind date with an amorous accountant (Jason Watkins). However, something in Emily rebels against her bourgeois destiny and she finds herself drawn to Donald (Gleeson), a gruff, beefy loner who has been living in a self-made hut on the Heath for many years. The pairing of bearish, formidable Irish actor Brendan Gleeson (again!) with professionally ditzy, ageless ingenue Diane Keaton is perfect. UK 2017 Joel Hopkins 103m BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Traumatised by his parents’ death in a car crash, Baby (Elgort) became a joyrider and, having contracted tinnitus in the same accident, he constantly listens to music to drown out the buzz. Baby is paying off a debt to Doc (Spacey), incurred when he stole Doc’s booty-laden Mercedes. But Doc won’t let him go once the debt is paid, and his luck can’t last for ever. The opening credit sequence, in which Baby goes round the corner and back to buy coffee, all in one shot, is almost dazzling! UK/USA 2017 Edgar Wright 112m

Yerma

The incredible Billie Piper (‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Great Britain’) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. 120m - Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.

Dunkirk

Booking Ref

It is 1940, the Battle on Dunkirk has begun: Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated take on the key moment in WWII. The film is told from three points of view: on the beach with the infantry (including Fionn Whitehead and Harry Styles), the evacuation by the navy (Kenneth Branagh), and helped by Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance, showing how civilians came to the rescue and then in the air (with Tom Hardy engaging in plane combat). For the soldiers who embarked in the conflict, the events took place on different temporalities. On land, some stayed one week stuck on the beach. On the water, the events lasted a maximum day; and if you were flying to Dunkirk, the British spitfires would carry an hour of fuel. Hans Zimmer provides a magnificent score subtlety morphing into Elgar at the climax. Netherlands/UK/France/USA 2017 Christopher Nolan 106m

At first he struggles to find his place, but with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own.

John Le Carré: An Evening with George Smiley Live by Satellite from London’s Royal Festival Hall Join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers, as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character. From his extraordinary Cold War novels to his powerful descriptions of the War on Terror, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century. In a rare public appearance and one-off event, the author introduces his new novel, ‘A Legacy of Spies’, which sees the return of his most iconic Cold War characters. With a unique question and answer session, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words. In conversation with Jon Snow, le Carré discusses the full breadth of his career spanning five decades, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, George Smiley. 135m RSC Recorded Live

When a society is oppressed, it becomes violent. How do we govern ourselves? Titus Andronicus is a commentary on the way this world could be going. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Shakespeare’s revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. Blanche McIntyre directs David Troughton in this chillingly contemporary Titus Andronicus. 180m including interval.

The Odyssey L’Odyssée Highly influential and a fearlessly ambitious pioneer, Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s (Lambert Wilson) aquatic adventure covers roughly thirty years of an inarguably rich in achievements life. From 1949 to 1979, the famous researcher, scientist, inventor, filmmaker made the general public more curious about the sea. A genius, and leader of men, Cousteau was not without defects his being unfaithful to ever-supportive wife Simone (Audrey Tautou) for example. After his son Philippe dies in the crash of a plane he was piloting, the dashing conqueror of the sea suddenly becomes a broken old man, but his eldest son Jean-Michel is by his side to help him overcome his grief and go on with his mission.

The story of a couple in Nazi-occupied Germany who stand up to Hitler and the SS regime after their son is killed in action. Starring Brendan Gleeson, Emma Thompson and Daniel Brühl. Vincent Perez’s diverting story concerned a middle-aged couple waging an anonymous propaganda war against Nazism in the early 1940s. Hans Fallada’s 1947 novel based the characters of Otto and Anna Quangel on Otto and Elise Hampel, a respectable working -class couple who complied with the stentorian demands of their government until their only child, Hans, was killed in the Battle of France in 1940. Gleeson is - as always - excellent, conveying his character’s duelling impulses of rebellion and resignation via his stolid, shuffling body language. His onscreen rapport with Thompson, too, is gently moving. UK/France/Germany 2016 Vincent Perez 103m BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

The Other Side of Hope Toivon Tuolla Puolen Aki Kaurismäki’s droll drama-comedy sees a poker playing restauranteur and former travelling salesman befriend of a newly arrived group of refugees in Finland. This is a typically deadpan and brilliantly observed comic study of the plight of asylum seeker Khaled (Sherwan Haji). His unlikely benefactor is Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen), another of Kaurismaki’s stoical and impassive heroes. Kaurismäki is the great Finnish master of melancholy wit. His world remains the familiar one he’s built so lovingly over a long career, where jobs are a barely tolerated necessity, everybody smokes and drinks, vintage clothes, bars and uniforms are preferred, and troubles and are met with deadpan responses and biting remarks. Wise, sardonic and beautiful. (Subtitles) Finland 2016 Aki Kaurismäki 100m

Maudie Sally Hawkins delves past Maud Lewis’ arthritis-stricken exterior to capture the inner spirit of the folk artist in this modest biopic. Hawkins is at her best is this engaging and gently moving period drama, depicting the real-life story of Maud Lewis, a talented painter who refused to be hindered by her severe arthritis and went on to become one of Canada’s best-known artists. Ethan Hawke is also impressive in the initially unsympathetic role of the man who, to everyone’s surprise in their remote Nova Scotia community, hires Maud as his housekeeper, with the pair starting the most unlikely of romances. Maud impresses not so much for her perseverance but for her indefatigable optimism. Canada/Ireland 2017 Aisling Walsh 118m

Hotel Salvation Mukti Bhawan 2017 Chichester Film Festival opening film. Faced with his father’s bizarre demand to go and die in the holy city of Varanasi, a son is left with no choice but to embark on this journey. An Indian comedy full of emotional depth and understated paradox, ‘Hotel Salvation’ describes the tragicomic ordeal of an over-worked modern son who is forced to set his job aside and accompany his elderly father to the holy city of Varanasi to, presumably, die. The tale has an exotic setting, family values, and satisfying moral outcome, and is far removed from Bollywood. The film brings to mind ‘Marigold Hotel’, but Bhutiani’s take on the subject is embedded in Indian culture and Hindu rituals.

The young man who boxes in his spare time is intrigued by Liliane, and so is eager to become her friend.

Jimmy Logan is a divorced father, injured Iraq war vet and John Denver enthusiast from West Virginia. His wounded leg gets him fired from a construction job at the Charlotte Motor Speedway because it’s “a pre-existing condition”. It is another example of the Logan curse, says his brother Clyde (Adam Driver), a stoic bartender with a prosthetic hand (again, Iraq). After a humiliating experience with a Nascar-affiliated sponsor (Seth MacFarlane), Jimmy pitches Clyde an elaborate plan to rob the speedway.

A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times must be responsible. As a serial killer stalks the Limehouse streets of Victorian London in 1880, the terrified population of this squalid district of the East End believe that the “Golem”, a monster from Judaic mythology, is responsible. Inspector Kildare (Nighy) of Scotland Yard is handed the impossible task of solving these heinous crimes and his investigations lead him on a race across the capital from The Old Bailey, to Newgate Prison, to the music halls of London and the British Museum. In the style of ‘Se7en’ and ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, this is a return to the classic Hammer Horror style based upon the novel by Peter Ackroyd.

Steven Patrick Morrissey wants to write and sing. But as a young man, his voice goes no further than the NME letters page and his dead-end office walls. When the punk scene explodes, Steven discovers there’s more to life than dark satanic mills. With the help of strong women, the young Morrissey embarks on a journey to become himself in a world that’s trying to make him like everybody else. This should be an exercise in rock biiography for the big screen. What makes Mark Gill’s debut interesting is that it is not. Jack Lowden (‘Dunkirk’) is committed as the young Morrissey, awkward in his shoes, fed-up with Manchester, and every bit as much of an intellectual snob as he is today. Wry, tasteful, and with a tangible sense of the era. UK 2017 Mark Gill 94m

Based on the real-life courtship between Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his stand-up sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. The Big Sick finds plots by losing them. That’s its genius. One moment we are in an ethnic satire; the next a rom-com; the next a hospital comedy-drama. But that’s existence.

In this enthralling and beautifully mannered labour-of-love of a film, writer/director Stanley Tucci has taken a brief moment in the life of artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) and distilled it into an amusing, sophisticated and insightful film about art, life and love. Based on American art critic James Lord’s memoir of how Giacometti invited him to sit for him in Paris in 1964, only to find his portrait sitting, that the wonderfully flighty Giacometti said would last for a few hours at most, extending into days and weeks. Flattered by the attention, Lord (Armie Hammer) is forced to cancel and rearrange a series of flights back home as Giacometti is continually distracted. With Geoffrey Rush in superb form as the wonderfully contrary artist, this chamber piece film is a finely mounted comedy drama full of bold brush strokes and artistic flourishes.

The Midwife Sage Femme An understated portrait of two women at crossroads in their lives, starring Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, and by the director of ‘Séraphine’. Claire is a wonderfully gifted midwife, but over the years, her delicate ways, her sense of pride and responsibility are clashing with the more efficiency-driven methods of modern hospitals. One day she receives a strange phone call, a voice from the past. Béatrice, the extravagant and frivolous mistress of her deceased father, has important and pressing news and wants to see her again, 30 years after having disappeared without a trace. Opposed in every way, the over-conscientious Claire – bordering inhibition - and the free-spirit, life-loving Béatrice, will learn to accept one another and by revealing old secrets will start to make up for the lost years.

The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity. It was on a 2003 family trip to the Isle of Wight’s Osborne House that Indian journalist Shrabani Basu wandered through the house’s Indian wing, and noticed several portraits and a bust of an Indian servant called Abdul Karim, and noted that “he did not look like a servant”. In a project that spanned around five years and three countries, Basu slowly uncovered the story of Victoria and Abdul - a 24-year old former Indian Muslim clerk who had been granted as a ‘Golden Jubilee gift’ to the Queen, and ended up becoming her closest confidante until she died.

Spring. Yorkshire. Young farmer Johnny Saxby numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex, until the arrival of Romanian migrant worker Alec ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path. With obvious similarities to Ang Lee’s ‘Brokeback Mountain’, this is not just a love story. It is also an immigrant tale, and an unflinching portrait of rural farm life where the war between tradition and change is bitter and has real casualties. And in Josh O’Connor (‘Peaky Blinders’) the film finds a central performance of great authenticity and naturalism. This is one of the most assured, fully-formed British debuts of recent years.

Kedi ‘Kedi’ is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves. Some fend for themselves, scavenging from dumpsters, living in abandoned buildings, others are cared for by communities of people, pampered with the best cat food and given shelter for the cold months. Part wildlife documentary, part urban love letter, this is a lyrical and surprising philosophical tribute to the therapeutic power of pets. (Subtitles) Turkey/USA 2016 Ceyda Torun 76m

Belle de Jour Even after 50 years, Luis Buñuel’s erotic odyssey still brilliantly tantalises. Catherine Deneuve stars as a wealthy but bored newlywed, eager to taste life to the fullest. She seemingly gets her wish early in the film when she is kidnapped, tied to a tree, and whipped. It turns out that this is only a daydream, but her subsequent visits to a neighbouring brothel, where she offers her services, certainly seem to be real. This illusion/reality dichotomy extends to the final scenes, in which we are offered two possible endings. Thanks to a question of copyright and ownership, ‘Belle de Jour’ disappeared from view shortly after its 1967 release, not even resurfacing on videotape. When it was reissued theatrically in 1994, many critics placed the perplexing but mesmerizing film on their lists of that year’s best films. (Subtitles) France/Italy 1967 Luis Buñuel 100m

Loving Vincent Live from The National Gallery + Q&A Join us for a special Gala screening, broadcast live from the National Gallery (London) which will include a lively post-film discussion and interactive Q&A with Directors Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela and other special guests. The world’s first fully painted animated feature, which took 5 years to complete, brings to life a stellar cast and a true tribute to the Dutch master. 29th July, 1890: Vincent Van Gogh, bullet in his belly, stumbles along the drowsy high street of Auvers at twilight. Traditionally, the famously troubled artist’s death is viewed as suicide. But ‘Loving Vincent’ delves into the ambiguities of his life and last days to reconsider this narrative via the stories of his paintings and the people who inhabit them. Footage originally performed by a cast including Robert Gulaczyk, Saoirse Ronan, Aidan Turner and Helen McCrory forms the basis of frames which mimic Van Gogh’s singular Impressionist technique. Thick daubs of flickering, variegated colours play over each character’s face, revealing the depth and ambiguity of their shifting thoughts and emotions in a truly innovative way and enhancing our understanding of a canonical artist and his great interior anguish.

One night, an unexpected event slowly but steadily forces her to confront this existential limbo head on. ‘Looking for Mr. Goodbar’ meets Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Margaret’ on the streets of 21st century London in Peter Mackie Burns’ disarming debut ‘Daphne’. First and foremost, it’s a cracking little showcase for rising British actress Emily Beecham, who’s seldom off screen for long as the tale’s lively, complex, intriguing quasi-heroine.

Jonas Kaufmann: My Italy

Booking Ref

This concert coupled with a documentary shows Jonas Kaufmann’s special affinity with the Italian language, the Italian way of life and culture – and also, of course, the music. There is no other place in the world like Italy: the sun, the sea, the scent of the citrus and coffee, a seductive gaze, an incomparable song rising from the heart. Jonas presents his personal tribute to a culture where the influence and beauty of Opera goes beyond the walls of the theatre. Puccini and Verdi are not the central figures of the concert however, but the hits from tenors like Enrico Caruso & Lucio Dalla. The concert was recorded in Teatro Carignano in Turin, the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionalle della RAI accompanies the star under the baton of Jochen Rieder. (Subtitles) 115m. BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

Wind River

Booking Ref

A chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who teams up with a local game tracker (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation. Wind River, the location, is a reservation high in the bone-white Wyoming wilderness – a place of “snow and silence”, as Cory Lambert (Renner) evocatively puts it. Renner, in one of his best roles, lends a weathered depth to Cory but also surprising intelligence to the character deemed “Sherlock Snow,” for whom a career of wildlife work has made him a detective savant. A chilly air of isolation and desperation pervades this thriller, Taylor Sheridan’s (‘Hell or High Water’, ‘Sicario’) new directorial effort that proves he’s more than an exceptional writer. He has put together a talented Native American cast, including the venerable Graham Greene as a tribal sheriff. UK/Canada/USA 2017 Taylor Sheridan 107m

Pecking Order

Booking Ref

You’d be excused for thinking a documentary about competitive chicken breeding in New Zealand could be either a little dry or a touch wacky. This however – is a real treat! Join members of the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club in the lead up to the NZ National Championships, as they battle history and each other in a quest for glory and for the love of their birds. At first ‘Pecking Order’ treads a fine line between documentary and mockumentary, but as the story settles, the characters are revealed with respect and dignity, and you find yourself wishing them well and seeing chicken shows as perfectly everyday. ‘Pecking Order’ is hilarious, unique, heart-warming and will delight and surprise audiences of all ages.

British animator Hugh Welchman and his wife, artist Dorota Kobiela have brought together 65,000 oil painted frames - produced by 115 professional artists - to form this stunning cinematic achievement. Received a standing ovation at its premiere in the Amency Animation Festival. Vincent Van Gogh, bullet in his belly, stumbles along the drowsy high street of Auvers at twilight. Traditionally, the famously troubled artist’s death is viewed as suicide, but ‘Loving Vincent’ delves into the ambiguities of his life and last days to reconsider this narrative via the stories of his paintings and the people who inhabit them. Thick daubs of flickering colours play over each character’s face, revealing the depth and ambiguity of their emotions in a truly innovative way and enhancing our understanding of this canonical artist.

Army of Shadows

Booking Ref

L’ Armee des Ombres Following the very successful day course exploring ‘Occupation, Resistance and the Cinema’ we ran in May, here is an opportunity to see the full length version of some of one of the extraordinary films we referred to on the day. In this war drama set during the French Resistance of WWII, a courageous fighter escapes Gestapo headquarters and returns to Marseille. There he and his gang capture a traitor, and then try to rescue a Resistance fighter in Lyons. As they do so, the hero is again captured and his partner killed. The screenplay is based on Joseph Kessel’s novel and became filmmaker Jean Pierre Melville’s magnum opus. From the first sight of German soldiers goose-stepping past the Arc de Triomphe to a postscript that spells out the fate of characters, ‘Army of Shadows’ is a movie of its time - and ours.

Patricia Clarkson, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall and Kristin Scott Thomas get more than their just deserts in this dark comedy wrapped around a tragedy. The single setting is a well-appointed London home on an auspicious night for hostess Janet (Scott Thomas), a career politician celebrating her promotion to shadow health minister. Ominously, her academic husband (Spall) appears to be in shock at the news, numbing himself with booze to a soundtrack of jazz and blues on crackly old-school vinyl. Among the guests at the party is April (Clarkson), a former idealist turned wisecracking cynic, accompanied by an unlikely partner in the shape of ageing New Age hippie Gottfried (Bruno Ganz). Attractively shot in timeless monochrome, British director Sally Potter’s chamber farce was filmed in just two weeks, which may help explain its adrenalized energy and lean running time.

Reading the Language of Cinema

Day Course with Richard Cupidi All films are made, constructed. Whether an art house indie or studio blockbuster, all films are composed of identical cinematic DNA: directing, editing, cinematography, sound, lighting, acting and script. In this informal and interactive workshop, we’ll explore how these basic film elements function individually and then work together to create complex narratives, develop themes and meanings, sustain mood, atmosphere and pace - in other words, how they make the film come alive. Being familiar with film language and construction not only enriches our experience as filmgoers, it also provides us with some common ground for discussing films. Throughout the morning we’ll investigate the “how” process using examples drawn from a wide range of films, observing how cinematic techniques transform into the flow of movement and story. Later in the day, we’ll put our newfound film literacy into practice as we watch a short film together and then critically discuss it. To paraphrase the great film critic Roger Ebert, this illuminating process of reading a film is “truly a democracy in the dark”. Everyone welcome.

British Prisoner-Of-War Films

In a series of three talks, Charles Rollings explores a thirty-year period (1945 to 1975) in the history of these films, and asks why, despite their popularity, they have been disregarded by serious film critics. He shows how the genre evolved, culminating in the first post Second World War example, ‘The Captive Heart’ (1946) and uses clips from ‘The Wooden Horse’ (1951), ‘Albert, RN’ (1953), ‘The Colditz Story’ (1955), ‘The One That Got Away’ (1957), ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ (1957) and other lesser known examples to demonstrate how they reflected contemporary issues and how they influenced later films. In particular, he shows how ‘The Great Escape’ (1963) mined old movies, but was then itself imitated by The Password is Courage (1962), Von Ryan’s Express (1965), Hannibal Brooks (1969) and The McKenzie Break (1970). He then discusses how this and the 1970s ‘Colditz mania’ generated by the Colditz BBC TV series led to send - ups by popular comedians. Charles is an expert on this subject and a great supporter of the Education programme at New Park cinema. BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

From Russia with Love?

Booking Ref

Russian Cinema in the Soviet Era and After We welcome Ian Christie who returns to our cinema with this new day course. Soviet cinema gained a worldwide audience in the 1920s, with Lenin’s blessing and its star directors became the first art-house heroes. But there was always much more going on, often not widely exported. We will look at the pioneer period up to 1939, and at the new popular cinema of the 30s. We move on to the new talents that emerged in the 1960s, often critical of Soviet life and then then look at the leading role filmmakers played in influencing society under Gorbachev. As well as the classics, from Eisenstein to Tarkovsky and Sokurov, Ian will look at comedy, musicals and realism, as well as censorship and different ways of pleasing the masses. Ian Christie teaches film history at Birkbeck College, at the National Film and Television School and internationally. He is also a regular broadcaster and writes for Sight & Sound, with a longstanding interest in Russian cinema. He has contributed several times to our Summer Film Festival and is always an interactive and engaging speaker.

Occupation, Resistance and the Cinema: Part 2 Following the very successful day course exploring Occupation, Resistance and the Cinema we ran in May, an opportunity to see the full length versions of some of the extraordinary films we referred to on the day. In the Winter Season, two films (Rome Open City - Roberto Rossellini: Italy 1945); Au Revoir Les Enfants - Louis Malle: France 1987) will be shown in the Studio. This season, we screen ‘Army of Shadows’ (Jean Pierre Melville: France 1969) in the Main Auditorium, and all three will be introduced by Mike Jennings, New Park’s Lead Trustee for Education, and will be followed by questions and discussion.
