Welcome the QUAD brochure for July – September 2016 There has been an exciting recent development at QUAD that you might not have seen yet, the refurbishment of the Digital Studio on the 1st floor, giving us a more adaptable and dynamic space. As well as a refresh and adding the latest technology, an extension of the studio now allows us to cater for larger groups, for example education sessions for young people, and we can offer more courses and learning experiences around creative digital media such as film-making, animation, photography and coding. The flexibility of the space also means we can use the studio for corporate events too so please get in touch if you need use of an inspiring space right in the heart of the city. Also I am delighted to announce that QUAD has successfully won £83,480 from BBC Children in Need to fund Q club for the next three years.

USA 2016 110 mins Dir: Jeff Feuerzeig
Eddy and Patsy are still living the high life and oozing glitz and glamour – shopping, drinking and clubbing around London’s trendiest hot spots. When they are blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they find themselves at the centre of a media firestorm. They flee to the glamourous French Riviera where they hatch a plan to make their move permanent and live the high life forever! Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley return alongside Saffy (Julia Sawalha), Bubble (Jane Horrocks), Mother (June Whitfield) plus a host of celebrity faces including Lily Cole, Rebel Wilson, Dawn French and Kate Moss.
This documentary follows the tale of JT LeRoy, the author of ‘The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things’ - a man who doesn’t exist. The film takes us down the fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert, like a Cyrano De Bergerac on steroids, breathed not only words but life into her avatar for a decade. Albert’s epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. As she recounts this astonishing odyssey, Albert reveals the intricate web spun by irrepressible creative forces within her.
Screening from 22nd July USA/UK 2016 Dir: Steven Spielberg
Sweden 2016 112 mins Dir: Thomas Vinterberg
USA 2016 86 mins Dir: Liza Johnson
The new film from Thomas Vinterberg (Festen) is a change of pace from last year’s sumptuous Far From The Madding Crowd remake. The Commune is the story of Erik and Anna, an academic couple who set up a Danish commune in bohemian 1970s Copenhagen. What follows is a compelling clash between their personal desires and the dreams of communal solidarity; as their ideal of tolerant socialist living is eclipsed by an earthshattering love affair, putting their relationship, their community and the commune to its greatest test.
This comedy-drama focuses on a strange meeting between the King Of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon) and the President of the United States Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) in December 1970. Based on this bizarre true story, the film is a humourous take on what could have happened behind the closed doors of the White House on that December morning.
A girl named Sophie is kidnapped from her orphanage by the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) and is taken into the world of a kind-hearted soul who is considered an outcast because he refuses to eat little boys and girls. Steven Spielberg tackles one of the classic tales from Roald Dahl’s collection. Mark Rylance re-teams with Spielberg after the Oscar Winning success of Bridge Of Spies in the eponymous role of the BFG. Fun for kids of all ages!

Crazy About Tiffany’s USA 2016 86 mins Dir: Matthew Miele
Tiffany & Co. has captured the aspirational dreams of the world with its timeless elegance and sophistication. This documentary seeks to explore how a simple jewellery store dating from 1837 exists with behind the scenes characters to the clients that are adorned by their jewellery. From Audrey Hepburn’s eating arrangements to Marilyn Monroe’s best friend, Tiffany’s has woven itself into the cultural consciousness recognised around the world.
Set during the US Civil War, this tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight (Matthew McConaughey), and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi, to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State Of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War. With Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) and Keri Russell (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes).

Queen Of Earth
Spain 2015 111 mins Dir: Julio Medem
USA 2015 90 mins Dir: Alex Ross Perry
Penelope Cruz stars as Magda, an unemployed divorcee diagnosed with breast cancer. She tries to get on with her life, starting a new relationship, while continuing to raise her son. As the trio start to form a new family, the cancer rears its head once again. Cruz is outstanding in this film showing the struggles of being an unemployed single parent while trying to cope with this new health news. Julio Medem steps behind the camera (Sex and Lucia, The Red Squirrel) for his first full length feature film since 2010’s Room In Rome.
Catherine (Elisabeth Moss) has entered a particularly dark period in her life; her father has died and her boyfriend James has left her. Looking to recuperate, she heads out to her best friend Virginia’s (Katherine Waterson) lake house to relax. But she struggles as memories of times with James return to haunt her. Meanwhile her friend is starting an affair with a local man Rich (Patrick Fugit) and the cracks in the women’s relationship start to appear.

The Neon Demon USA 2016 110 mins Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn
Making its debut at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in competition, The Neon Demon is the latest film from Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives). It is a dissection of fame, celebrity and art starring Elle Fanning. Aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are seized upon by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will go to extreme lengths to get what she has. With Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Keanu Reeves. “A beautiful, dark twisted fantasy” Little White Lies
Versus: The Life And Films OF Ken Loach
When Marnie Was There
UK 2016 93 mins Dir: Louise Osmond
Friday 1st – Thursday 7th July Japan 2014 103 mins Dir: Hiromasa Yonebayashi
Versus is a funny, provocative and revealing account of the life and career of one of Britain’s foremost filmmaker’s, Ken Loach, as he turns eighty and looks back at over fifty years of high quality filmmaking. From his debut feature Poor Cow (1967) to I, Daniel Blake (2016), Loach has been at the forefront of insightful filmmaking about the world, people and the human experience.
When shy artistic Anna moves to the seaside to live with her aunt and uncle, she stumbles upon an old mansion and a mysterious girl Marnie. The two girls form a unique connection that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. With each trip to the mansion Anna starts to piece together the truth about her new friend Marnie. The latest (possibly last) feature from Studio Ghibli is a sweeping gothic tale of friendship, mystery and discovery that delivers the breathtaking animation that made the studio a worldwide sign of quality.

Poor Cow Men & Chicken
Denmark 2015 104 mins Dir: Anders Thomas Jensen
A riotous, bawdy and transgressive black comedy, Men & Chicken stars Mads Mikkelson in surely one of his least suave roles as troubled loner Elias, brother to Gabriel, a depressed academic. Discovering their father isn’t really their father, they go in search of their biological parent, travelling to the remote island of Ork to do so. It is a ‘unique’ place with a whole manner of politically incorrect goings-on but behind the gleefully twisted happenings, the question of where we come from and what makes us human are addressed in this very funny and provocative comedy.
No Home Movie
France 2015 115 mins Dir: Chantal Akerman
Chantal Akerman turned to her mother for her final film subject, an old woman of Polish origin who lives in her apartment in Brussels. Focusing on conversations between herself and her mother, a Holocaust survivor lost in a maze of memories, the film switches between in person meetings and Skype conversations. An intimate film of precision and beauty, both personal and universal. The film was completed shortly before Chantal Akerman commited suicide and it is a film that leaves a lasting impression of loss both in the film and to the world of film.
Notes On Blindness UK 2016 90 mins Dir: Pete Middleton & James Spinney
A provoking documentary exploring the loss of sight, brilliantly framed within the personal story of theologian and writer John Hull. As Hull began to lose his sight, he made a series of audio recordings of his experience, an intimate and acutely insightful account described by Oliver Sacks as “extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful… It is to my mind a masterpiece.” Melding classic documentary elements with cinematic re-enactments, the film uses a naturalistic tone and immersive imagery to bring this introspection to life.

UK 1967 101 mins Dir: Ken Loach
UK/Germany 2015 103 mins Dir: Omer Fast
The debut narrative feature from Israeli video artist Omer Fast, is a stylish thriller adapted from English novelist Tom McCarthy’s cult bestseller. Set in London, where an accident causes an unnamed young man (Tom Sturridge), to lose his memory and sense of self. In recovery, he’s visited by sensations of extreme déjà vu and after he is given a large financial settlement, starts trying to reconstruct his past via a few fragments of memory. But neither he can’t predict how far he will go. Cleverly crafted to mirror its protagonist’s mental state, this is an often surreal, darkly humourous thriller.
Ken Loach’s first feature film and a landmark in British social realist film-making returns to cinemas in a new digital restoration. A snapshot of ‘60s London stars Carol White (Up The Junction) as young mother Joy. Beautiful, free-spirited and resilient, Joy is nevertheless struggling to cope while her brutal, uncaring husband is in jail. Clutching at any slight chance of happiness, she falls for his associate, Dave (Terence Stamp) but with heart breaking results. Full of ‘60s colour and music, it’s also stylistically innovative, with an improvised spontaneity.
Where You’re Meant To Be UK 2016 76 mins Dir: Paul Fegan
In the spring of 2014, Scottish cult-pop raconteur Aidan Moffat and award winning filmmaker Paul Fegan made plans to tour the length of Scotland to socialise with local characters, carouse into the early hours and explore the country’s music traditions as part of a folkloric pop voyage! The ensuing film is a warm-hearted and open-armed journey through Scottish music, landscape and time as they meet Shelia Stewart, 79 year old folk royalty and have their assumptions turned on their heads!

SCULPTING TIME ANDREI TARKOVSKY SEASON
A season of films from iconic Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky starting with Andrei Rublev and ending with his final film The Sacrifice. All seven of his films are presented in brand new digital restorations as part of a nationwide tour.
USSR 1966 183 mins Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky
USSR 1975 107 mins Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky
USSR 1983 125 mins Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky
This epic historical drama charts the life of Andrei Rublev, 15th century icon painter. Rublev lives in a world consumed by feudal violence and human degradation, and the turmoil around him makes him lose the will to speak. After many years of silent travelling around medieval Russia, he meets a young boy who has taken charge of the construction of a large silver bell, and in him discovers the inspiration to speak again. Immediately suppressed upon release by the regime, Andrei Rublev is considered Tarkovsky’s first masterpiece.
After the success of Solaris, Tarkovsky made one of his most personal films in the heavily autobiographical Mirror. Reflecting upon his own childhood alongside the history of the Russian people, Tarkovsky creates a dreamscape layering memories of childhood with dreams and nightmares. A visual insight into Tarkovsky the man and Tarkovsky the artist, the film resonates with directors, placing No.9 in the 2012 Sight and Sound Greatest Films Of All Time Director’s Poll.
Andrei Gortchakov (Oleg Yankovsky) is a Russian author on an Italian research expedition with his beautiful translator Eugenia (Domiziana Giordano) to retrace the journey of 18th century Russian composer named Sosnovsky who, despite achieving international recognition away from his homeland, eschewed fame and returned to the humble life of a feudal serf. Highly cerebral, beautifully realised this is an abstract exploration of nostalgia, for a physical and cultural past.
USSR 1972 166 mins Dir: Andrei Rarkovsky
Adapted from the 1968 novel by Stanislaw Lem, Tarkovsky tackled the book in an attempt to find a popular cinematic subject. Donatas Banionis is a cosmonaut sent to investigate disappearances on the space station orbiting the planet Solaris, only to be confronted by the past in the vision of his dead wife, absorbingly played by Natalya Bondarchuk. Tarkovsky presents the story as a dreamlike interrogation of faith, memory and the power of love.
USSR 1979 162 mins Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky
Deep within the Zone, a bleak and devasted forbidden landscape, lies a mysterious room with the power to grant the deepest wishes of those strong enough to make the hazardous journey to get there. Desperate to reach it, a scientist and a writer approach the Stalker, one of the few able to navigate the Zone’s menacing terrain, Adapting Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s ‘Roadside Picnic’, Tarkovsky’s second foray into science fiction is a surreal and disturbing vision of the future.
USSR 1986 149 mins Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky
Tarkovsky’s final film explores a deeply personal statement on humanity’s self-destruction and the end of the world. Starting on the precipice of World War III, the story is about Alexander, a journalist and former actor and philosopher who, on the outbreak of war, turns to God and offers himself up as a sacrifice to change the world and stop the war. The Sacrifice is a heart-breaking but ultimately reaffirming film about love, humanity and faith.
ADAPTING HIGHSMITH A SEASON OF PATRICIA HIGHSMITH ADAPTATIONS
Patricia Highsmith – an American who lived most of her life in Europe, where she enjoyed success largely denied her at home – is one of the most adapted-for-cinema authors of the mid/late 20th Century. Although working specifically in crime fiction, the artistry and intelligence she brought to her work is widely considered to have transcended the genre and rival that of mainstream literature.
It is a year of Shakespeare as the country marks the 400th anniversary of the writer’s death. With a host of live performances and screenings, QUAD has put together a short season of some of the best adaptations and films that have been inspired by the works.
Coriolanus Strangers On A Train Sunday 10th – Thursday 14th July UK 1951 101 mins Dir: Alfred Hitchcock
Often referred to as Alfred Hitchcock’s return to form after a series of critical and commercial disappointments and co-written by Raymond Chandler, Strangers On A Train was adapted from Highsmith’s debut novel, published just a couple of months after her 29th birthday in 1950. Robert Walker and Farley Granger play Bruno and Guy, two young men whose chance meeting on a train journey leads to a supposedly fool-proof murder swap as Bruno agrees to kill Guy’s wife if Guy disposes of Bruno’s father.
Deep Water (Eaux Profondes) (Advised ) S Sunday 21st – Thursday 25th August (excluding Mon 22nd & Tues 23rd) France 1981 93 mins Dir: Michel Deville
Middle aged perfumer Vic Allen (Jean-Louis Trintigant) lives on the island of Jersey with his young wife Melanie (Isabelle Huppert) and their daughter Marion (Sandrine Kljajic). Melanie embarks on a string of extra-marital flirtations, all with her husband’s apparent approval, but mild-mannered, chess-playing Vic soon has murder on his mind. This version of Highsmith’s 1957 novel has a dark humour poised mischievously between Luis Bunuel and Claude Chabrol.
The Cry Of The Owl (Le Cri Du Hibou) S Sunday 18th – Tuesday 20th September France/Italy 1987 102 mins Dir: Claude Chabrol
Highsmith and Claude Chabrol seemed to be made for each other so it’s surprising that the prolific French director (La Femme Infidele, Le Boucher) didn’t turn to the writer’s work more regularly. Although Highsmith herself considered The Cry Of The Owl a lesser novel, Chabrol recognised its great power. The film centres on the unusual relationship between Robert (Christophe Malavoy) and Juliette (Mathilda May), which develops after Robert, a draughtsman and part time artist, admits to having spied on her for several months.
Wednesday 7th & Thursday 8th September UK 2011 123 mins Dir: Ralph Fiennes
Ralph Fiennes made his directorial debut with his transposition of Shakespeare’s Rome set play to the mid-1990s Balkans, amid a chorus of television news pundits and up close and personal warfare. Fiennes takes the central role of banished hero Coriolanus among a strong supporting cast including Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, James Nesbit and Vanessa Redgrave.
King Lear Wednesday 21st & Thursday 22nd September UK 1970 134 mins Dir: Peter Brook
Legendary stage director Peter Brook directs his own adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. King Lear (Paul Scofield), having decided to split his kingdom between his three daughters, decides to apportion the lands according to which daughter declaims her love for him best. When his daughter Cordelia refuses to flatter her father’s ego with claims of devotion, Lear angrily gives the lion’s share of his power to her sisters, Goneril and Regan. They soon abuse the trust, and Lear finds himself emasculated and powerless. Before long he is drifting into madness, as his former empire falls apart.
All Night Long Monday 12th & Tuesday 13th September UK 1962 91 mins Dir: Basil Dearden
Enough Rope (Le Meurtrier) (Advised ) S Sunday 24th – Tuesday 26th July France 1963 104 mins Dir: Claude Autant-Lara
The big screen version of Highsmith’s ‘The Blunderer’ stars a pre-Goldfinger Gert Frobe as boorish bookseller Melchior Kimmel. After seeming to escape justice for killing his wife, Kimmel comes to the attention of philandering husband Walter Saccard. When Saccard’s spouse Clara comes to a tragic end, the police are quick to link the deaths.
The Talented Mr Ripley Sunday 4th – Tuesday 6th September USA 1999 139 mins Dir: Anthony Minghella
After the Oscar-laden success of his adaptation The English Patient, Anthony Minghella tackled a very different literary source – the book that first introduced Tom Ripley. “I loved the tone of the novel” he said, “airless, alienated, uncomfortable, claustrophobic, lonely and also quite harsh”. Casting Matt Damon as the protagonist opposite Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow, Minghella sought to be faithful to the original text.
This adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello updates the tale to 1960s Britain and brings the jazz greats of the day along for the ride. Aurelius Rex (Paul Harris) is happily married to Delia (Marti Stevens). Patrick McGoohan (The Prisoner) plays Johnny Cousin (this film’s Iago) who is scheming to steal Rex’s job and starts to spread rumours of Delia’s unfaithfulness. Also starring Betsy Blair and Richard Attenborough, All Night Long is set against the jazz backdrop of Dave Brubeck, Charlie Mingus and many more.
The Bad Sleep Well
Wednesday 28th & Thursday 30th September Japan 1960 129 mins Dir: Akira Kurosawa
Koichi Nishi (Toshiro Mifune) is a grieving son seeking revenge for the suicide of his father. By assuming a new identity he rises through the ranks of the Public Corporation and cynically marries the president’s daughter to better infiltrate the company and expose the corrupt practice that was responsible for his father’s death. However as Koichi falls in love with his wife, disaster looms. A powerful indictment of the dark side of business and politics with distinct overtones of Hamlet.

“Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf is not just fun, it’s a critique of the leisure industry. A bit like Banksy’s Dismaland, but with shorter queues.” Jonathan Jones, The Guardian Artists: Yinka Shonibare MBE, John Akomfrah OBE, Hetain Patel, Yara El-Sherbini, Ellie Harrison, Candice Jacobs, Lindsay Seers, Eyal Weizman, Reactor, Doug Fishbone.
Leisure Land Leaderboard As part of the exhibition QUAD has commissioned Brendan Oliver of Floating Point Digital to produce a digital scoreboard. Projected large in the Gallery – see if you can top the leaderboard!
This summer Doug Fishbone transforms QUAD Gallery into a playful environment, taking visitors on an amusing and thought-provoking journey with an artist-designed mini-golf course. The Gallery installation uses the fun and accessible game of mini-golf as a powerful tool for questioning the leisure industry and society’s compulsion for consumption whilst also addressing other important cultural topics from migration to global warming and globalisation.
Costs: to play: £2 per person, £1.50 concessions, £5 Family ticket. The course is available to hire, please enquire at QUAD Reception.
2nd July – 4th September 2016 QUAD Extra Gallery Spaces

Accompanying Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf will be a presentation of Sunscreen, an online project of 40 digital artworks in the form of downloadable screensavers that visitors to the Sunscreen website are invited to select and install onto their own work stations for free. Conceived by Candice Jacobs, Sunscreen explores the role of the internet in both work and leisure. It considers how our tastes, aspirations and value systems are controlled through consumerism. Each of the 40 Sunscreen artists has a connection to the East Midlands region. http://sun-screen.uk
East Meets West 2.0 presents sixteen artists working with moving image or photography, gathered from an open call to practitioners based within the Midlands, or those who have graduated from a Midlands-based University in the past three years. The open call asked for responses relating to ‘Leisure’ – a core theme explored in Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf – and resulted in a fascinating and diverse collection of interpretations, from projects delving into drinking culture, documenting community-led action to save a local swimming baths, to a sensitive portrait of a young Shetland Island resident’s use of his leisure time. Through a selection process conducted by a panel of experts, the work of the selected artists will be exhibited throughout QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces, before touring to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in partnership with GRAIN Projects, Birmingham, while also receiving a one-to-one professional development session from industry professionals.
QUAD would like to thank Nicola Shipley, Director at GRAIN Projects, David Severn, Sebah Chaudhry and Claire Reece for collaborating on this project, the artists for their participation in East Meets West 2.0, and to all those who submitted to the open call.
The artwork was commissioned for the 56th Venice Biennale by EM15, a collective of arts organisations from the East Midlands, including QUAD, New Art Exchange, One Thoresby Street and Beacon Art Project with support from Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. More information can be seen: www.em15venice.co.uk The exhibition is FREE to visit.

Through ongoing research into belief systems and their place in collective action, Reactor explores the ways in which culture and common beliefs hold together specific social groups. Each project creates a different social microcosm with its own internal iconography, logic and meanings – from a utopic new community in a small rural Scottish village, to a Big Lizard Fun Bus touring city centres across Europe. Reactor has completed numerous national and international commissions, working in the UK with organisations such as Gallery North (Newcastle), Grizedale Arts (Cumbria), Castlefield Gallery (Manchester), and internationally with KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), MoBY (Tel Aviv), and Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt).

COMING SOON! Glitched! Quest for the Lost MacGuffin 24th September – 20th November 2016
A MacGuffin is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The specific nature of a MacGuffin is typically unimportant to the overall plot. Glitched: Quest for the Lost MacGuffin is a game-like journey in which the player explores QUAD Gallery, looking for five fragments of a ‘lost’ MacGuffin. These fragments exist as ‘Augmented Reality’ (AR) – visible only through the screen of a handheld tablet computer. Once the five fragments have been found the ‘lost’ MacGuffin is revealed. But beware! There are decoy MacGuffins – can you find the five fragments of the lost MacGuffin?! And to throw you off the scent, the gallery is full of ‘glitches’ – real-life corruptions or fissures in the everyday world around us that will make your journey around the gallery very interesting indeed!

On a tiny exotic island, Tuesday, an outgoing parrot lives with his animal friends in paradise. But Tuesday wants to discover the world. When a traveller is shipwrecked on the shore, he sees this Robinson Crusoe as his ticket off the island. But first he must help his new human friend survive the two new savage cats that are taking over the island.
USA 2016 Dir: Andrew Stanton & Angus MacLane
