JULIETA FRI 26 AUG – THURS 8 SEPT

DIR: PEDRO ALMODÓVAR • SPAIN • 2016 • 1 HR 39 MINS SUBTITLED

Julieta finds Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar (Talk to Her, All About My Mother, Volver) in austere, reflective mode. It’s based on three short stories by the Nobel Prize-winning writer Alice Munro (published online by the New Yorker if you’d like to seek them out) which follow the same character. In 2015, Julieta is a teacher of fifty-five. She writes a long letter to her daughter Antía, explaining the secrets she has kept from her over the last 30 years. But when she finishes her confession, she

doesn’t know where to post it, because they have been estranged since Antía left her at the age of 18. Starring Adriana Ugarte and Emma Suárez as the younger and older Julieta, this is an eloquent and richly resonant film, with Almodóvar eschewing the energetic farce of his last release - I’m So Excited - in favour of a return to his great subject; the emotional terrain and interior lives of women. “Julieta is a guilt-soaked pleasure… it’s like an unexpectedly dry martini in a dazzling Z-stem glass.” – TIM ROBEY, THE TELEGRAPH

BORN TO BE BLUE FRI 5 – THURS 11 AUG

DIR: ROBERT BUDREAU • UK/CANADA/USA 2015 • 1 HR 38 MINS

Ethan Hawke gives an extraordinary performance as legendary trumpeter Chet Baker, the ‘James Dean of jazz’, in Canadian filmmaker Robert Budreau’s unconventional biopic, which charts his tumultuous life and career. Similarly to Don Cheadle’s recent Miles Ahead, Budreau’s innovative anti-biopic riffs off its subject’s artistry and creativity rather than sticking exclusively to the facts of his existence, and reimagines a key moment in Baker’s life as the musician attempts to stage a comeback spurred in part by a passionate romance with a new flame (Carmen Ejogo).

THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER FRI 19 – THURS 25 AUG

DIR: BRADY CORBET UK/HUNGARY/FRANCE • 2015 1 HR 56 MINS • PARTIALLY SUBTITLED

A child’s angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious, senses-shattering feature debut from actor Brady Corbet. Liam Cunningham, Bérénice Bejo and Robert Pattinson head the cast of this dark domestic nightmare, featuring a thunderous musical score by Scott Walker. Set amidst the turmoil of World War I and its aftermath, it follows the young son (Tom Sweet) of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him – a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of Fascism in Europe.

DOCUMENTARY

BOBBY SANDS: 66 DAYS FRI 5 – THURS 18 AUG

DIR: BRENDAN J. BYRNE • UK/USA/DENMARK/IRELAND/SWEDEN 2016 • 1 HR 46 MINS

In the spring of 1981 Irish Republican Bobby Sands’ 66-day hunger strike brought the attention of the world to his cause. Drawing on an Irish Republican tradition of martyrdom, Sands’ emotive, non-violent protest – he wished to be classified as a political prisoner – became a defining moment in 20th century Irish history. Sands’ death after 66 days marked a turning point in the relationship between Britain and Ireland, and brought a global spotlight to the Northern Irish conflict – which eventually triggered international efforts to resolve it.

Bobby Sands: 66 Days is a major feature length documentary exploring Sands’ remarkable life and death, 35 years on from his ultimate sacrifice. The spine of the film is comprised of Sands’ own words, drawn from his hunger strike diary – a unique insight into the man and his beliefs as he embarked on his final journey. The 6.20pm screening on Sat 6 Aug will be a followed by a Q&A with director Brendan J. Byrne.

THE CONFESSION: LIVING THE WAR ON TERROR FRI 19 – SUN 21 AUG

DIR: ASHISH GHADIALI • UK • 2016 CERT TBC 1 HR 35 MINS

Moazzam Begg has been detained under suspicion of terrorism in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Cuba and Britain. In 2002, in Bagram, he confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda. He has never been convicted of any crime, or even brought to trial. This is his first-hand account of what forced that confession, a chronicle of terror, torture and rendition. The 6.30pm screening on Fri 19 Aug will be a followed by a Q&A with Moazzam Begg and director Ashish Ghadiali.

DOCUMENTARY

MOM & ME FRI 19 – THURS 25 AUG

DIR: KEN WARDROP • IRELAND/USA 2015 • 1 HR 16 MINS

CERT TBC

Irish documentary maker Ken Wardop (His & Hers) takes a delightful delve into the mother/ son relationship. Wardrop heads to Oklahoma (described as the ‘manliest state’ in the US at the start of the film) and – with Mother’s Day looming – uses a radio show in which men are asked to call in to discuss their mothers as a springboard to examine the lives of these relationships. It’s a touching and thoroughly engaging concept that results in a deeply moving, amusing and highly watchable film.


NEW RELEASES

DAVID BRENT: LIFE ON THE ROAD FRI 19 – THURS 1 SEPT

DIR: RICKY GERVAIS • UK • 2016 1 HR 36 MINS

David Brent: Life on the Road sees the highly anticipated big screen debut of one of comedy’s best-loved characters, David Brent (Ricky Gervais). The film catches up with Brent twelve years on from the BBC mockumentary ‘The Office’ to find he is now a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies’ personal hygiene products company. However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.

WIENER-DOG FRI 26 AUG – THURS 1 SEPT

DIR: TODD SOLONDZ • USA • 2016 CERT TBC 1 HR 30 MINS

Two decades into a career of mining the varieties of human dysfunction, celebrated independent filmmaker Todd Solondz (Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness) casts new light on the grotesque suburban landscape through the eyes of man’s best friend. As a hapless female Daschund makes her way through a series of troubled owners – including a failed screenwriter (Danny DeVito), an embittered octogenarian (Ellen Burstyn), and the resurrection of Solondz’s cult heroine Dawn Wiener as a veterinary assistant (Greta Gerwig) – Solondz crafts an outlandish, sometimes surreal portrait of all-American malaise.

MÆND & HØNS

MEN & CHICKEN FRI 5 – MON 8 AUG

DIR: ANDERS THOMAS JENSEN DENMARK/GERMANY • 2015 1 HR 44 MINS • SUBTITLED

The title Men & Chicken might hint at where this brilliant new black comedy is going to head, but you won’t have seen anything like it before. Starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and breaking box office records on its release in Denmark, Men & Chicken is about two hapless brothers who head to a dilapidated mansion on a remote island to meet their biological father – and their three seriously eccentric siblings – resulting in an outlandish hybrid of The Three Stooges and The Island of Dr. Moreau.

AN

SWEET BEAN TUES 9 – THURS 11 AUG

DIR: NAOMI KAWASE JAPAN/FRANCE/GERMANY 2015 • 1 HR 53 MINS • SUBTITLED

One of the most acclaimed figures in modern Japanese cinema, Naomi Kawase’s (Still the Water) Sweet Bean is a small-town drama of culinary redemption. Struggling street food vendor Sentaro (Masatoshi Nagase) finds himself confronted with Tokue (Kirin Kiki), an odd but sympathetic elderly lady looking for work. When he reluctantly accepts, it’s not long before Tokue proves to have an extraordinary gift when it comes to making “an” – the sweet red bean paste filling used in his dorayakis – which starts a relationship that is about much more than just street food.

THE IDOL FRI 12 – THURS 18 AUG

DIR: HANY ABU-ASSAD • NETHERLANDS/ UK/QATAR/ARGENTINA/PALESTINE 2015 • 1 HR 39 MINS • SUBTITLED

From Oscar-nominated director Hany Abu-Assad (Omar), The Idol maps the true story of Palestine’s first pop celebrity, Mohammed Assaf, and his stellar rise to fame following his victory in the 2013 season of Arab Idol. Reminding us that truth can be stranger – and more wonderful – than fiction, The Idol follows the remarkable story of Assaf’s journey from a refugee camp in Gaza, through to his audition in Egypt and his crowning victory in Beirut that stirred the dreams, hearts and aspirations of people around the world.

VALLEY OF LOVE FRI 12 – THURS 18 AUG

DIR: GUILLAUME NICLOUX • FRANCE/ BELGIUM • 2015 • 1 HR 32 MINS SUBTITLED

The legends that are Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu star in a moving new drama from French writer/director Guillaume Nicloux (The Nun). In this mysterious and beautiful examination of a broken family, Huppert and Depardieu play thinly disguised versions of themselves as a separated couple who journey to Death Valley after receiving a mysterious letter from their dead son. “In such a spare and intimate story, Huppert and Depardieu are riveting.” – KATIE WALSH, LOS ANGELES TIMES


SECOND SIGHT

QFT’s pick of restored and re-released classics, back on the big screen where they belong.

SID & NANCY FRI 12 – TUES 16 AUG

DIR: ALEX COX • UK • 1986 1 HR 53 MINS

Celebrate 40 years of punk with a reissue of Alex Cox’s (Repo Man) seminal 1986 biopic starring an almost eerily brilliant Gary Oldman. He plays the Sex Pistols’ Sid Vicious, with Chloe Webb as his girlfriend Nancy Spungen: together, an ill-fated King and Queen of alternative rock. Full of sound and fury, Cox’s cultish film is a barnstorming portrait of a defiant generation and its music but also a very touching love story, elevated further by Oldman and Webb’s outstanding performances.

MONONOKE-HIME

PRINCESS MONONOKE SUN 14 AUG, 2.30PM

DIR: HAYAO MIYAZAKI • JAPAN • 1997 2 HRS 14 MINS • SUBTITLED

One of the most successful films of all time at the Japanese box office, Hayao Miyazaki’s epic tale put Studio Ghibli on the international map. Set in medieval Japan, Princess Mononoke tells the tale of young warrior, Ashitaka, who battles with a cursed beast and receives a wound that refuses to heal. Searching for a remedy for the supernatural injury, his journey leads him to a forest where forest gods, led by the eponymous princess, are fighting against human invaders who consume the forest’s resources.

Subtitled version (we promise). Tickets £4.

DIR: JEAN-LUC GODARD • FRANCE • 1960 • 1 HR 30 MINS • SUBTITLED

DIR: TOM TYKWER • GERMANY • 1998 • 1 HR 20 MINS • SUBTITLED

Jean-Luc Godard’s groundbreaking tale of the brief love affair between petty criminal Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and young American student Patricia (Jean Seberg) was one of the first and most important statements of the French New Wave.

A whirlwind race against time, a breathless caper, a twisty philosophical game, and, when it first appeared, a fresh breath out of Germany that restored Berlin to its former status as a great movie location, Run Lola Run is smart pop cinema at its best. 35mm screening.

Introduction by Des O’Rawe, lecturer in Film Studies at Queen’s University.

Join us after the film in the QFT bar for a special DJ set from Venus Dupree, one half of GIRL: spanning the gap between disco, italo and house.

STAND BY ME SAT 13 AUG, 6.20PM

DIR: ROB REINER • USA • 1986 1 HR 29 MINS

In a small, quaint Oregon town, a group of friends are in search of a missing teenager’s body. Wanting to be heroes in each other’s and their hometown’s eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. When they encounter the town’s knife wielding hoods, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. Based on the Stephen King novella ‘The Body’, Stand By Me is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experience of growing up.

EMPIRE OF THE SUN SAT 27 AUG, 3.30PM

DIR: STEVEN SPIELBERG • USA • 1987 2 HRS 33 MINS

An inspiring, action-packed epic of a small boy in a great war. Jim Graham (Christian Bale) is a young man whose unconquerable spirit soars high and free above the harsh confines of a Japanese internment camp during World War II. Through his eyes we see the fascination and horror of war. And we see a child’s hold onto childhood weaken as his struggle to survive grows fiercer. Based on J. G. Ballard’s memorable bestseller.

SUN 14 AUG, 3.20PM

DIR: CLAUDE CHABROL • FRANCE/ITALY • 1987 • 1 HR 42 MINS SUBTITLED

DIR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK • USA • 1951 • 1 HR 41 MINS

Although Highsmith herself considered The Cry of the Owl a lesser novel, director Claude 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.

Often referred to as Alfred Hitchcock’s return to form after a series of critical and commercial disappointments, Strangers on a Train, co-written by Raymond Chandler, was adapted from Highsmith’s debut novel, published just a couple of months after the author’s 29th birthday in 1950. 35mm screening.

CAROL

DIR: ANTHONY MINGHELLA • USA • 1999 • 2 HRS 19 MINS

DIR: TODD HAYNES • UK/USA • 2015 • 1 HR 59 MINS

After the Oscar-laden success of his Michael Ondaatje adaptation The English Patient, AngloItalian filmmaker Anthony Minghella tackled a very different literary source – the book that first introduced the character of Tom Ripley (‘I loved the tone of the novel’ he said, ‘airless, alienated, uncomfortable, claustrophobic, lonely and also quite harsh.’)

An adaptation of one of Highsmith’s most intensely personal works – her second (pseudonymously published) novel The Price of Salt – Todd Haynes’ film, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, recently came top in a BFI poll of the Best LGBT Films of All Time.

When Saccard’s wife comes to a tragic end, the police are quick to link the two deaths.
