Day Shall Dawn


Wednesday 1st & Thursday 2nd November



Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th November

Pakistan 1958 93 mins Dir: AJ Kardar

India 1957 138 mins Dir: Guru Dutt

An extraordinary collaboration between artists in hostile parties – West Pakistan, East Pakistan, India and the UK – Day Shall Dawn is a long-lost treasure of Pakistani cinema. Out of circulation for decades, this film has been denied an audience over the years. Ripe for rediscovery, the film is inspired by Manik Bandopadhay’s 1930 novel Padma River Boatman and focuses on the intimate struggles and infinite wells of humanity and dignity in the daily lives of fisherfolk in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), a world dominated by poverty and exploitative loansharking.

An immortal classic, Guru Dutt’s soulful, romantic masterpiece is frequently listed as one of the greatest films of all time. Made in 1957, the same year as Mehboob Khan’s Mother India, it was part of Hindi cinema’s golden age. Translating as ‘The Thirsty One’ set in post-independence Kolkata (then Calcutta), it tells of a young poet’s ambition. But after he is mistakenly believed killed in an accident and his reputation instantly soars, he sees that success may hang only on a twist of fate. Beautifully restored in 2015, the stark black and white photography powerfully evokes the antagonistic forces at work in this classic romantic melodrama.

Miss Lovely


India 2012 113 mins Dir: Ashim Ahluwalia


14 – 15 FRINGES



Wednesday 6th & Thursday 7th December

Friday 10th & Saturday 11th November


The Chess Players

Brothers Vicky and Sonu Duggal are partners in crime, churning out sex-horror films for the underground Mumbai’s small picture houses, where opportunism, corruption and lust abound. Skirting censorship, and gangland distributors, hustler Vicky struggles to run their operation, leaving the legwork to Sonu, whose rage bubbles beneath the surface. On the train home one day, Sonu is mesmerised by the mysterious Pinky, a struggling actress. He knows that only she can save him. Increasingly resentful of Vicky, Sonu decides to produce his dream romantic film, Miss Lovely. But nothing is what it seems in this garish underworld of shifting alliances and doomed love.

India 1976 129 mins Dir: Satyajit Ray

Set in Lucknow in 1856, two noble landowners Mir (Saeed Jaffrey) and Mirza (Sanjeev Kumar) incessantly play chess every day oblivious to the political developments happening around them; the colonising aims of a powerful British army seeking to annex the Indian state of Awadh. Ray uses chess as a subtle metaphor for the larger political game being played out around Mir and Mirza.

Britain On Film: South Asian Britain Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th November UK 2017 90 mins Dir: Various

Explore the history of Britain’s South Asian population, weaving together archive footage from across the UK touching on disparate communities originally from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Showing life before and after British rule in South Asia, this compelling collection illustrates how the relationship between Britain and the region was made inextricable by the Empire; its dissolution, and often painful legacy – and ultimately, how the South Asian diaspora in the United Kingdom has so gloriously and meaningfully enriched life in our country.

FILMS Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool UK 2017 105 mins Dir: Paul McGuigan

78/52 USA 2017 91 mins Dir: Alexandre O. Philippe

An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the ‘Man Behind The Curtain’, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema. In 78 setups and 52 cuts, the deliriously choreographed two-minute shower sequence in Psycho ripped apart cinema’s definition of horror. America’s changing social mores – revealing how one bloody, chaotic on-screen death killed off chaste cinema and eerily predicted a decade of unprecedented violence and upheaval.

The Death of Stalin From 20th October – 2nd November USA/UK 2017 107 mins Dir: Armando Iannucci “The Death of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-List line-up. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian. The return to the cinema screens of Armando Iannucci after 2009’s In The Loop is a welcome return indeed. This black comedy follows the backstairs intrigue that followed the death of Stalin in 1953 and the Soviet Communist Party’s leaders’ attempts to cope with the massive vacuum left at the heart of the state. An amazingly well cast film that features Michael Palin, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough and Simon Russell Beale.

Tuesday 21st November at 6:45pm

Spain 1999 101 mins Dir: Pedro Almodóvar

After her son Sebastian is killed in an accident, Manuela (Cecilia Roth) leaves Madrid for her old haunts in Barcelona. She reconnects with an old friend, a pre-op transsexual prostitute named La Agrado (Antonia San Juan), who introduces her to Rosa (Penelope Cruz), a young nun who turns out to be pregnant. Tracing the delicate web of friendship and loss that binds these women together, the film is anchored by compassion, generosity and an incredible vitality of the characters. Winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar (2000).

Happy End

USA 2017 101 mins Dir: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie

France 2017 107 mins Dir: Michael Haneke

After a botched bank heist lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through New York City’s underworld in an increasingly desperate and dangerous attempt to get his brother out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Constantine finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance. Featuring Benny Safdie and a resurgent Jennifer Jason Leigh (recently seen in The Hateful Eight and Twin Peaks). Channelling the spirt of Elmore Leonard, the Safdies have created a visual odyssey packed with claustrophobic energy.

Anne (Isabelle Huppert) is the chatelaine of both her family’s estate and lucrative business, having inherited it from her father Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) – who is suffering from dementia and occupies a Lear-esque place in their household, waited on by long-suffering Moroccan servants. A blistering satire of the hautebourgeoise, wrought by master of cinema, Michael Haneke (Amour, The White Ribbon) exploiting his familiar themes of familial dysfunction and psychological violence; the horror of death and the obsession with surveillance – to brilliant effect.

The Florida Project

Trans-Memorial Screening

All About My Mother S

This adaptation of Peter Turner’s memoir depicts the surprising romance between Oscar winning movie star Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening), then in her mid-fifties and Turner (Jamie Bell), a young actor in his twenties.

Their relationship spans London, Los Angeles, New York and…Liverpool. With Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Graham, Frances Barber, Kenneth Cranham and Julie Walters.

Good Time

USA 2017 115 mins Dir: Sean Baker

Battle Of The Sexes


From 24th November

From 27th October

USA 2017 121 mins Dir: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris This biopic of tennis star Billie Jean King, played by Emma Stone focuses after King’s triumphant win at the 1972 US Open. Here she finds that a new prize fund has been introduced offering women eight times less than the men. Her opposition brings out the misogynist ex-pro Bobby Rigg (Steve Carell), who challenges her to an exhibition match to prove finally, in his eyes, who is the better sex! The film also explores King’s marriage and her burgeoning same-sex relationship with her hairdresser, played by the everreliable Andrea Riseborough.

UK 2017 117 mins Dir: Andy Serkis Andy Serkis steps out of the motion capture suit and behind the camera for this true-life drama about Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) and his unwavering wife, Diana (Claire Foy) as they face the odds in his fight against polio. A spirited tea broker is suddenly and irreversibly paralysed with polio aged 28. Despite being confined to a bed, he devotes the rest of his life to help fellow patients and the disabled. A great central performance by Garfield may put him on the same wave that swept Eddie Redmayne to the Oscars for The Theory Of Everything.

“A shot of pure cinematic joy” Little White Lies Director Sean Baker made a huge splash in 2015 with the ‘shot-on-aniPhone’ film Tangerine, and his new film follows up on that gem. Set in the shadows of the theme parks of Orlando, this film follows the inhabitants of a motel block and their everyday battle to live, ride and survive in Disney territory. Single mum Halley is struggling to raise her wisecracking child Moonee while Willem Dafoe is brilliant as the harried motel manager Bobby whose life seems to consist of keeping his rowdy tenants in check. A fantastic portrait of working class America.

The Glass Castle USA 2017 127 mins Dir: Destin Cretton Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jeanette Walls, this new film follows Jeanette (Brie Larson) as a young girl coming of age amidst a dysfunctional family of non-conformist nomads. Her mother Rose Mary (Naomi Watts) is an eccentric artist while her father (Woody Harrelson) is a drunk who tries to stir the children’s imaginations as a distraction from their poverty.


The Killing Of A Sacred Deer UK/Ireland 2017 109 mins Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos Yorgos Lanthimos continues to become a bigger draw despite not ‘toning’ down his unique vision of cinema. Last years The Lobster was a hit in UK cinemas, including QUAD, and he returns with another all-star cast for this tale of a heart surgeon’s bafflingly strange life. Steven Murphey (Colin Farrell) is a successful professional man with a stylish wife (Nicole Kidman), two charming children…and a 16 year old best friend? The odd dynamic between the two, starts to unfold – what has this teenager got on Steven? An unusual strange world has been created here but what do you expect from the director of The Lobster and Dogtooth.

Roman J Israel, Esq USA 2017 129 mins Dir: Dan Gilroy “A   nervy, compelling performance from the Oscar-winning actor dominates this unconventional morality play from the writer/ director of Nightcrawler.” – The Guardian Denzel Washington stars as Roman J Israel, a socially awkward, idealistic defence attorney who is relegated to an office based position in the firm he co-partners. But when tragedy strikes his partner he is forced into a world that is unfamiliar and unwelcoming. He is head hunted by the slick head of a larger firm (Colin Farrell), and then his life begins to change. Dan Gilroy builds on his excellent Oscar nominated Nightcrawler with the character study of a man who is usually in the background in life.

Suburbicon From 24th November

50 Years Ago, 50 Years On presented by QUAD and Derbyshire LGBT+

Prick Up Your Ears Friday 24th November at 8:30pm. Dir: Stephen Frears’ 1987

Biopic of the British playwright Joe Orton, celebrating its 30th Anniversary. Based on diaries, the film tells the tragic story of Orton (played by Gary Oldman) and his older lover Kenneth Halliwell. Both are desperate for acclaim but it is the younger writer Orton that is shot to fame after his enormously successful plays Entertaining Mr Sloane and Loot hit the London Stage.

USA 2017 104 mins Dir: George Clooney George Clooney steps behind the camera once again with frequent collaborators The Coen Brothers scripting this satirical black comedy. Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic community with affordable homes and manicured lawns. Matt Damon plays Gardner Lodge, a man reeling from a brutal home invasion that resulted in the death of his disabled wife. While his neighbours are suitably scandalised, they have other things on their mind: the black family that have moved in down the street. Set in 1959, this film parallels the very modern problem of racism hiding behind the white picket fences of suburban America.

Blood Simple: Director’s Cut

The Wages Of Fear

Friday 27th & Saturday 28th October

France/Italy 1953 131 mins Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzet

USA 1984 96 mins Dir: Joel Coen

The Coen brothers’ thrilling debut is back on the big screen in a new 4k restoration approved by The Coens and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld (Men In Black). Immediately pulpy and cultish in feel, Blood Simple possesses all the characteristics that propelled the Coens to later success – razor sharp dialogue; a predilection for lethal and futile violence; ironic, fatalistic humour; and an inventive focus on the tragicomic lives of idiosyncratic misfits. M. Emmett Walsh is sleazy Texas private eye Visser, hired by bar owner Marty (Dan Hedaya) to kill his unfaithful wife (Frances McDormand) and her lover (John Getz). Given a plan to work from, he decides to modify it without warning; and matters quickly spiral out of control. The screening on Friday 27th October at 8:30pm will be introduced by journalist and film critic Nigel Powlson.

Monday 30th & Tuesday 31st October

Gene Hackman plays Harry Caul in Francis Ford Coppola’s classic paranoid thriller. Caul is a surveillance expert, tasked with recording a couple with cold professional distance by an unknown client. But what he captures raises unsettling, deadly questions. Wrestling with the echoes of the past, Caul is tormented by past mistakes and forced to engage with his work’s moral implications. Released within years of the Watergate scandal, The Conversation is both a telling document of the paranoid ’70s and also a chilling reminder in an age where surveillance is the norm. Featuring a wealth of incredible supporting actors – Harrison Ford, Robert Duval and John Cazale – this is a haunting film about technology, alienation and guilt.

“The Wages Of Fear has no superior in the field of action-suspense” The Guardian In an unnamed South American country four men are each offered $2,000 to drive two trucks of highly volatile nitro glycerine to a remote oil field. One truck is manned by the happy-go-lucky Luigi (Fulco Lulli) and calculating Bimba (Peter Van Eyck), the other by aging hood Jo (Charles Vanel) and the young Corscian Mario (Yves Montand). Tension builds between the men as they inch their way over the treacherous mountain roads, in the knowledge that the slightest jolt could have explosive consequences. Henri-Georges Clouzet more than earns his title as the ‘French Hitchcock’. The screening on Monday 30th October at 6:10pm will be introduced by film lecturer David Leicester.



Monday 6th & Tuesday 7th November France 1969 124 mins Dir: Costa-Gravas

Pulse pounding political thriller Z remains one of the most influential of all time. Jean-Louis Trintignant plays a magistrate assigned to investigate the supposed accidental death of a left-wing politician, memorably played by Yves Montand. In the course of his work he uncovers a series of deceits and lies that attempt to hide the real political motivation of the killing. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film in 1970, after also having been nominated for Best Picture.

40th Anniversary Screening

Sorcerer Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November USA 1977 121 mins Dir: William Friedkin

The Silence Of The Lambs

The Hitch-Hiker

Friday 17th & Saturday 18th November

USA 1953 71 mins Dir: Ida Lupino

USA 1991 118 min Dir: Jonathan Demme

Roy Scheider lends his intense talent to this taut action-adventure from director William Friedkin, a spin on Henri-Georges Clouzet’s magnificent Wages Of Fear. Scorcer is set in a South American jungle, where a desperate four man team must transport a volatile cargo of nitro glycerine over 200 miles of treacherous terrain in order to stop a potentially disastrous oil fire. With an outstanding score by Tangerine Dream. The screening on Friday 10th November at 8:45pm will be introduced by journalist and film critic Nigel Powlson.

The recently sadly departed Jonathan Demme’s seminal thriller was only the third film to sweep all the top categories at the Oscars. Based on the Thomas Harris novel, Jodie Foster is young, shrewd FBI trainee Clarice Starling, assigned to interview – and bait – brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer Dr Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). But as she tries to pry his secrets loose, he in turn begins questioning her – skilfully digging into her psyche and eliciting long buried traumas. An exceptional thriller and an undeniable classic. The screening on Saturday 17th November at 6:15pm will be introduced by MA Film Student Charlotte Baker.

Sweden 1976 110 mins Dir: Bo Wilderberg

The Man On The Roof, featuring the character Martin Beck from the long running series of novels by left-leaning crime writers Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo, is a great example of a 1970’s Scandi-crime film. Here Beck, played by CarlGustaf Lindstedt, and his team investigate a brutal murder in a hospital, encountering stories of police brutality as they progress, which in turn leads to a thrilling climax on the rooftops of Stockholm. A great opportunity to see the roots of the current wave of Scandinavian crime dramas.

Ida Lupino’s gritty noir deserves to become a classic of the thriller genre. Based on the case of psychopathic murderer Billy Cool, the story begins with two friends (Edmund O’Brien and Frank Lovejoy) taking a fishing trip. Picking up a hitchhiker (William Talman), they quickly realise their mistake as he forces them on a grim road trip, after fleeing a killing spree. A terrifyingly real ride into the heart of darkness. The Screening on Tuesday 21st November will be introduced by Film writer Christina Newland.

The Last Seduction Monday 27th & Tuesday 28th November USA 1994 110 mins Dir: John Dahl

John Dahl’s reputation featured an all-time great femme fatale in Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino). Self-interested and willing to achieve her ends by any means, she washes up in Beston, a tiny town in New York State, having made off with the ill-gotten gains of a drugs deal. Needless to say her hardboiled past catches up with her, with her robbed husband hot on her trail. The screening on Monday 27th November at 6:10pm will be introduced by journalist and film critic Nigel Powlson.

Italy 1972 98 mins Dir: Lucio Fulci

This rather wonderful Giallo (the Italian violent thrillers named after the publishing trend of bright yellow book covers) is a great example of the ways in which a popular form, here the giallo style of violent thriller, can be used to critique institutions. In Lucio Fulci’s (Zombie Flesh Eaters) film, a series of murders of young boys takes place in a rural village where suspicion falls on those residents that are different and considered outsiders. On Saturday 2nd December, the screening at 6:30pm will be introduced by Fright Club historian Darrell Buxton followed by a special Café Bar Soundtrack Night

West Germany 1975 106 mins Dir: Volker Schlondorff & Margarethe von Trotta

Based on the best-selling novel by Frederick Forsyth. Fred Zinneman’s legendary film explores the attempts of a right-wing paramilitary group to assassinate French President General De Gaulle following the independence of Algeria.

Friday 8th & Saturday 9th December

Wednesday 27th & Thursday 28th December

Netherlands 1988 102 mins Dir: George Sluizer

USA 1953 90 mins Dir: Fritz Lang

“A   brilliantly crafted intellectual thriller with a spring like a trap.” The Washington Post Dutch filmmaker George Sluizer’s original is a supremely disturbing psychological thriller built from a nightmare premise. During a routine rest stop in an idyllic road trip, two young lovers are separated. Bafflement turns to panic for Rex (Gene Bervoets) as he realises his partner has truly vanished. The film follows Rex as he searches for Saskia (Johanna ter Steege) after her mysterious disappearance. He remains desperate, even years later, to find out what happened. A masterpiece of suspense; a brilliantly chilling study of both the nature of obsession and the nightmarish potential for perversity and evil in the everyday.

 “Memorable, audacious, hilarious, and bloody” Indiewire

Battle Royale meets Alice In Wonderland! In a world populated solely by women schoolgirl Mitsuko is heading off on a trip to summer camp with schoolmates when a bizarre incident leaves all but her dead. The confused and terrified Mitsuko then tumbles down a violent rabbit hole where everyone she encounters seems to die gory deaths at the hands of mysterious malevolent forces. Has she slipped into an alternate dimension? Is it all a nightmare? Will she stay alive long enough to find out? Japanese mischief-making director Sion Sono (Love Exposure, Tokyo Tribe) continues to masterfully blend violence and humour with this wickedly bloody treat.

When researching black magic in Bali, student Cathy meets a witch who promises to teach her the secrets of the dark arts. This is actually a trick and Cathy finds herself transformed into a Penanggalan, a mythical Indonesian monster made up of a head with the body’s internal organs hanging from its neck. Before directing Lady Terminator, a film still talked about in gob-smacked awe by those who saw it at Satori Screen in 2015, director H. Tjut Djalil was responsible for this other unforgettable piece of wonderous craziness. Bonkers in all the right ways.

It is the eternal debate: Nature or Nurture played out on the big screen. Two super-rich siblings place a bet on this debate. Firstly, they take the privileged managing director (Dan Ackroyd) of their commodities brokerage, fire him from his job and cast him out of his elite social circle. Then they take a small time street hustler (Eddie Murphy) who has been arrested and bring him into the fold. With Jamie Lee Curtis as a hooker with a heart and Denholm Elliot as the ever loyal butler. Get in the Christmas mood and see John Landis’ Christmas classic back on the big screen.

“There are three rules. 1) No Bright Lights, 2) Don’t Get Him Wet, and 3) Never feed him after midnight, no matter how much he begs. Rules to live by, rules that Billy Peltzer failed to follow.” The cute, adorable Mogwai Gizmo spawns a whole bunch of meaner friends who quickly turn into the malevolent Gremlins and bring a nightmare to the people of Kingston Falls. This yuletide classic is back on the big screen. We are delighted to welcome star of Gremlins Zach Galligan to QUAD for a post screening Q&A. What better way to kick start your Christmas!

Employing the characteristic humour in all Patel’s work, the films, crafted into a single multi-screen installation, create an immersive cinematic experience that is in turns playful, suspenseful and occasionally ominous. Shot with production values that emulate Hollywood feature films, both works feature an original orchestral soundtrack by composer Amy May that Patel employs to push the installation into epic realms.

Carmen On The Lake: From Lake Constance, Austria Encore: Monday 20th November at 1:00pm

Performed on the spectacular water stage of Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria, George Bizet’s Carmen is a story of passion, destiny and obsession. The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera and the Toreador Song. Recorded live on the floating stage with an extravagantly original and innovative design and the waters of the lake being used as an extension. This production of Carmen will be directed by Kaspar Holten, Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin whose past work includes sets for such stars as Adele, Take That, and Kanye West. Live Opera Tickets: £18, £16.50 Concessions and £15 QUAD members.

In this exhibition, Lightseekers (Kajal Nisha Patel) presents a new selection of sculptural works produced by participants during collaborative workshops. These workshops were designed to encourage the reimagining of artisanal craftsmanship, skill-sharing and hands-on production led by professional sculptor David Booth and Lee Richards of Upcycled Creative. Newly made lens-based works based on these varied and expansive collections of sculptural objects are also presented. The workshops took participants through a series of activities, from conceptual thinking to development of sculptural and utilitarian artworks using local scrap metal and other recycled materials. This led to wider discussions on art and making as a catalyst for change and a tool for communities to begin the process of forming new, collective identities, shaped around skills and knowledge exchange, and reflecting on the regions pre and post-industrial periods in which technological advances have forever altered the role of artisans in society.

Kimchi and Chips Line Segments Space 9th December 2017 – 28th January 2018 QUAD Gallery

QUAD presents the first UK showing of the mesmerising and immersive installation Line Segments Space by acclaimed Seoul-based artist and technology duo Kimchi and Chips. An architectural web of threads spans a gallery space. It hangs abstract and undefined, a set of thin positive elements segmenting the dark negative space between. Dynamic imaginary forms are articulated into physical volume by the material of this thread, and the semi-material of the light, the visual gravity of the filaments occupying the space between. A 2D canvas is reduced from a surface piece into a line segment, but then constructed into another dimension, a volume. Light creates contrast and order on the lines to articulate digital matter. Digital forms inhabit the interconnected boundaries of space, moulding visual mass.
