A GHOST STORY FRI 11 – THURS 24 AUG

DIR: DAVID LOWERY • USA • 2017 • 1 HR 32 MINS

With A Ghost Story acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Awardnominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and

history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal — a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll. “Opening in domestic contentment, moving through personal anguish and ending with a cosmic lament, it’s a simple, wrenching story of love and loss that pries open a window onto eternity.” – JUSTIN CHANG, LOS ANGELES TIMES ACCESS SCREENING The 6.40pm screening on Tues 22 Aug will include audio description and on-screen captioning.

MAUDIE FRI 4 – THURS 17 AUG

DIR: AISLING WALSH • 2016 IRELAND/CANADA • 1 HR 56 MINS

Maudie tells the story of folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins) and the unlikely romance between Maud and hardened reclusive bachelor Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke). The partnership the two develop helps turn her into one of Canada’s premier folk artists, whose paintings hang in The White House. Eliciting performances of tremendous complexity and physicality from her leads, Aisling Walsh’s film is a profoundly inspiring story of a woman who transcended both her disability and the social mores of her time through her art, as well as a moving exploration of the human heart.

ENGLAND IS MINE FRI 4 – THURS 17 AUG

DIR: MARK GILL • 2017 • UK 1 HR 34 MINS

England Is Mine is a feature length film based on the early life of the outspoken popstar Morrissey, former lead singer of seminal British band The Smiths, and successful solo artist with a career spanning over 30 years. Writer-director Mark Gill, Oscar and BAFTA-nominated for his astounding short, The Voorman Problem, makes his feature debut sending us back to the UK and Manchester in the ‘70s and ‘80s: Thatcher’s Britain, unemployment, rioting.

DETROIT FRI 25 AUG – THURS 7 SEPT

DIR: KATHRYN BIGELOW • 2017 • USA • 2 HRS 23 MINS

From the Academy Award winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked the city in the summer of ‘67.

to the point where the Governor was forced to call in the National Guard. When the riots were over, 43 people were dead, hundreds were injured, thousands were arrested, and many of the city’s buildings had been destroyed.

Kathryn Bigelow’s tense crime drama stars John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Will Poulter (The Revenant), Algee Smith (Earth to Echo) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton).

Detroit explores the systemic racism that led to arguably one of the most destructive civil disturbances in the history of the United States.

The film is set against the backdrop of the devastating Detroit riots that took place over five days in the summer of 1967, after police raided an unlicensed bar in the city’s Near West Side. The confrontation between the police and citizens quickly turned violent,

The film marks the third collaboration between Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, who won an Oscar in 2010 for his screenplay for The Hurt Locker and received an additional nomination for his work on Zero Dark Thirty.

DUNKIRK FRI 21 JUL – THURS 17 AUG

DIR: CHRISTOPHER NOLAN • UK/ NETHERLANDS/FRANCE/USA • 2017 1 HR 46 MINS

When 400,000 men couldn’t get home… home came for them. From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) comes the epic action thriller Dunkirk. Nolan directed Dunkirk from his own original screenplay, utilising a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

UNDER SANDET

LAND OF MINE FRI 4 – THURS 10 AUG

DIR: MARTIN ZANDVLIET • DENMARK/ GERMANY • 2015 • 1 HR 41 MINS SUBTITLED

Land of Mine, a 2017 Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, exposes the previously hidden story of Denmark’s darkest hour in the immediate aftermath of World War II. In the days following the surrender of Nazi Germany in May 1945, German POWs held in Denmark were put to work by the Allied Forces. With minimal or no training in defusing explosives, they were sent to remove in excess of two million of their own landmines from the Danish west coast. Brutal, believable and punctuated with gallows humour, Land of Mine sheds light on this historical tragedy.

TOM OF FINLAND FRI 11 – MON 14 AUG

DIR: DOME KARUKOSKI • FINLAND/ SWEDEN/DENMARK/GERMANY/USA 2017 • 1 HR 56 MINS • SUBTITLED

Award-winning filmmaker Dome Karukoski brings to screen the life and work of one of the most influential and celebrated figures of twentieth century gay culture. Touko Laaksonen returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II to find post-war Helsinki rampant with homophobic persecution. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specialising in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhabitations. His work – made famous by his signature ‘Tom of Finland’ – became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.

FINAL PORTRAIT FRI 18 – THURS 24 AUG

DIR: STANLEY TUCCI • 2017 • UK 1 HR 30 MINS

Writer/director Stanley Tucci takes a brief moment in the life of artist Alberto Giacometti and distills it into an amusing, sophisticated and insightful film about art, life and love. Final Portrait is based on young American art critic James Lord’s (Armie Hammer) memoir of how Giacometti invited him to sit for him in Paris in 1964, only to find his portrait sitting extending into days and weeks. 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.

L’ODYSSÉE

THE ODYSSEY FRI 18 – THURS 24 AUG

DIR: JÉRÔME SALLE • FRANCE • 2016 2 HRS 3 MINS • SUBTITLED

Featuring a gleaming French cast including Audrey Tautou, director Jérôme Salle takes us on a voyage through the life of legendary French oceanographer, environmentalist and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau. Taking in locations from across the globe, The Odyssey is no hagiography; Salle gives us a flawed Cousteau, a visionary who struggled to reconcile his boundless ambition with his roles as a father and husband. Lambert Wilson brings a rakish charm and verve to Cousteau, a devil-maycare counterpoint to his wife, Tautou’s feisty and long-suffering Simone. Salle’s biopic pays fine tribute to one of France’s most enduring cultural icons.

Known for cult classics The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, and with the revival series of Twin Peaks about to reach its climax, David Lynch is one of the most prolific filmmakers working in the industry today. The formative years of his life are explored in unprecedented depth, from his idyllic upbringing in small town America, to the dark streets of Philadelphia, recounting the events that helped shape one of cinema’s most enigmatic and revered directors.

Williams tells the story of Formula One legend Frank Williams’ rise to fame and how his family battled to keep him alive and the team afloat after the crash that left Frank wheelchair-bound for the rest of his life. Featuring heart-pounding racing footage, interviews with muchloved Formula One stars (including Sir Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell, Alan Jones and Sir Patrick Head) and candid never-before-seen accounts of what really went on behind closed doors, this is an honest, authentic and incredibly revealing portrait of one of the most extraordinary families in motorsport.

AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER FRI 18 – THURS 24 AUG

DIR: BONNI COHEN & JON SHENK USA • 2017 • 1 HR 38 MINS

A decade after An Inconvenient Truth became an unprecedented box-office hit and brought the climate crisis into the heart of popular culture, this riveting follow-up shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. The film follows Al Gore as he continues his fight, inviting the audience to travel the world with the tireless campaigner as he visits parts of the globe affected by climate change and delivers his rousing, ever-evolving lecture. The stakes have never been higher, and this brilliant and timely sequel is precisely the urgent wake-up call that we all need.

Narrated by Maxine Peake, Dispossession explores the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain.

CITY OF GHOSTS MON 28 – THURS 31 AUG

DIR: MATTHEW HEINEMAN • USA • 2017 1 HR 32 MINS • SUBTITLED

Director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land) returns with City of Ghosts, the heart-stopping, incredible story of the citizen journalists of Raqqa, Syria who are single-handedly exposing the atrocities of ISIS whilst under constant threat of torture and death. A real-life international thriller, City of Ghosts exposes a new type of warfare: a battle over ideas, a fight for hearts and minds, a conflict over clicks and views. With astonishing, deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile.

BRITAIN ON FILM: LGBT BRITAIN WED 16 AUG, 6.20PM

DIR: VARIOUS • UK • 1909-1994 1 HR 25 MINS

Britain’s LGBT history is the inspiring subject of the fifth Britain on Film on Tour programme. With films spanning 1909 to 1994, it documents a century in which homosexuality went from crime to Pride, via decades of profoundly courageous activism, and the shifting attitudes to LGBT people and their rights across the board throughout a time of explosive social change.

MONTEREY POP

DIR: D.A. PENNEBAKER • USA • 1968 CERT 1 HR 18 MINS TBC

A 50th anniversary screening and new 4K restoration of D.A. Pennebaker’s classic concert film, shot on a beautiful June weekend in 1967, at the height of the Summer of Love. The first and only Monterey International Pop Festival launched the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a wildly diverse cast that included Simon & Garfunkel, the Who and the extraordinary Ravi Shankar. Pennebaker captured it all; immortalising these now legendary performances. Enjoy drinks offers and a late bar at every QFT Late: Cult & Classic!

PRICK UP YOUR EARS FRI 25 – SUN 27 AUG

DIR: STEPHEN FREARS • UK • 1987 1 HR 50 MINS

50 years after the death of its subject, Stephen Frears’ rollicking Joe Orton biopic returns to cinemas. Gary Oldman stars as the controversial playwright and provocateur who rose from working class Leicester lad to the toast of swinging ‘60s London - not forgetting a brief pit stop in prison - before his promising future was cut short. Supported by an all-star cast, Oldman delivers outrageous one-liners and scandalous sexual barbs with a Cheshire cat grin in a film that captures the giddy charm of a true English eccentric and the tragedy of an artist lost in their prime.

VICTIM MON 28 – WED 30 AUG

DIR: BASIL DEARDEN • UK • 1961 1 HR 40 MINS

Victim is an exposé of London’s gay subculture and its associated criminal underworld - shocking on its first release, poignant and powerful today. Director Basil Dearden couples controversial subject matter and a strong genre slant to create a thriller that is both politically compelling and dramatically taut, while Dirk Bogarde sheds his matinée idol image with a bold performance that would initiate the actor’s second life as a performer in challenging, subversive roles. “The film's presentation of sexual oppression remains shockingly relevant to this day.” – DAVID JENKINS, LITTLE WHITE LIES

DIR: KEN HUGHES • UK • 1968 2 HRS 16 MINS

DIR: FRANKLIN J. SCHAFFNER • USA 1968 • 1 HR 52 MINS

The timeless musical fantasy starring Dick Van Dyke as a child-like inventor whose lovingly restored racing car reveals a little magic under its bonnet. This relaxed screening has been designed to be friendlier to people with cognitive and sensory disorders, autism spectrum conditions, or dementia, and is open to all.

There’s nothing quite like the original Planet of the Apes. The ‘68 simian sci-fi classic endures for a host of reasons: the production design, the makeup effects, Charlton Heston’s hairy chest, the brilliant script and, of course, composer Jerry Goldsmith’s iconic score.

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

Described by The Observer as 'One of the most important theatrical events of the last twenty years', the Donmar Warehouse presents the first part of Phyllida Lloyd's Shakespeare Trilogy. Lloyd takes her tense, arresting production of Shakespeare’s famous discourse on power, loyalty, and tragic idealism into a gripping version for screen. Please note that this is a recorded performance with no interval.

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.
