LOVING FRI 3 – THURS 16 FEB
DIR: JEFF NICHOLS • UK/USA • 2016 • 2 HRS 3 MINS
Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter, Midnight Special) directs Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga in the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1950s Virginia for the crime of getting married. The year is 1958 and the Civil Rights Movement has barely begun. Richard, a white construction worker, decides to propose to Mildred, a black woman. What should be a happy beginning to their life together soon becomes an arduous legal and political battle against the state and society. Driven out of their hometown, Richard and Mildred Loving spend almost ten years fighting for the right to live as a family in the town they consider home. They push their case as far as the Supreme Court, resulting in the landmark annulment of the discriminatory Virginian law banning interracial marriage.
There may be a sentimental streak running through Jeff Nichols’ film, but this real-life story is heartfelt and profound. “The stabbing simplicity of Negga’s acting is breathtaking. Jeff Nichols has given us a quietly devastating film that resonates for the here and now and marches to the cadences of history and the heart.” – PETER TRAVERS, ROLLING STONE ACCESS SCREENING The 8.50pm screening on Wed 15 Feb will include audio description and on-screen captioning.

MOONLIGHT FRI 17 FEB – THURS 2 MAR
DIR: BARRY JENKINS • USA • 2016 1 HR 51 MINS
Moonlight is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality. Anchored by astonishing performances and the singular vision of filmmaker Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is a groundbreaking exploration of male masculinity—a sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.
CHRISTINE FRI 3 – THURS 9 FEB
DIR: ANTONIO CAMPOS • UK/USA 2016 • 2 HRS
Rebecca Hall gives a careerbest performance depicting the troubled life and very public death of Florida anchorwoman Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide live on air in the summer of 1974. Although it does deal with notions of voyeurism and prurience in our mass-media age, Antonio Campos’ exquisitely mature, yet refreshingly unforced third feature is a poignant bid to give Chubbuck her humanity back, particularly through Rebecca Hall’s astonishing performance. “Hall makes it impossible to look away from this portrait of a woman brought to the heartbreaking conclusion that she’s beyond hope.” – DAVID ROONEY, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
20TH CENTURY WOMEN FRI 10 – THURS 23 FEB
DIR: MIKE MILLS • USA • 2016 • 1 HR 58 MINS
Director Mike Mills (Beginners) brilliantly pulls back the curtain on the struggles, tragedies and triumphs of three generations of American women living in 1979 Santa Barbara. Annette Bening stars as Dorothea, a smart and resourceful woman in her 50s, raising her son (Lucas Jade Zumann) by herself for many years. Surrounding Dorothea’s small family is Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a 20-something woman who has recently survived a cancer scare and returns to her hometown to reassess her direction in life; and Julie (Elle Fanning), a teenager navigating the burgeoning independence of her adolescence and the responsibility it brings.
An ace soundtrack – which includes Talking Heads and The Raincoats – drives the story and its specific time and place, while the film’s impeccable production design draws the audience into the crumbling decay of its central location, so fully that viewers can almost smell the plaster. Throughout, Mike Mills expertly recreates the warmth and passion of a great memory – but also the urgency and energy of three generations in the throes of momentous transition. “Love and loss go hand in hand in 20th Century Women, a funny, emotionally piercing story about a teenager and the women who raise him.” - MANOHLA DARGIS, NEW YORK TIMES

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA FRI 27 JAN – THURS 9 FEB (NOT SCREENING MON 6 FEB)
DIR: KENNETH LONERGAN • USA • 2016 2 HRS 17 MINS
Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams star in this critically acclaimed drama from writerdirector Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me, Margaret) about a man’s painful home-town return. Casey Affleck gives a careerdefining performance as Lee Chandler, a reclusive handyman who returns to his Massachusetts seaside home town after the sudden death of his beloved older brother. In only his third feature in 16 years, Lonergan proves himself a master of detail. Heart-wrenching and emotionally powerful, this is brilliant, intense filmmaking of the very highest order.
THE FITS SUN 26 FEB – WED 1 MAR
DIR: ANNA ROSE HOLMER • USA 2015 •1 HR 12 MINS
11-year-old tomboy Toni (a showstopping Royalty Hightower) is bewitched by the tight-knit dance team she sees practicing in the same Cincinnati gym where she boxes. Enamoured by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines and even pierces her own ears to fit in. But when a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance becomes more complicated. Gorgeously shot and with a mesmerising score, The Fits is a transformative experience and a marvellous portrait of adolescence.
T2 TRAINSPOTTING FRI 3 – THURS 9 FEB
DIR: DANNY BOYLE • UK • 2017 1 HR 57 MINS
Two decades after director Danny Boyle’s groundbreaking drama set in Edinburgh’s dark, druggy underbelly, the four friends drawn from Irvine Welsh’s novel return to make amends… or seek revenge. Begbie (Robert Carlyle) has just been released from jail, Renton (Ewan McGregor) is making an emotional homecoming, and Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Spud (Ewen Bremner) are awaiting them both with very mixed feelings. The opening voiceover – an acerbically hilarious update of the original film’s bleakly observed intro – is worth the ticket price alone.
PREVENGE FRI 10 – THURS 16 FEB
DIR: ALICE LOWE • UK • 2016 1 HR 27 MINS
Alice Lowe (Sightseers) writes, directs and stars in this riotous tale of a pregnant serial killer, hell-bent on revenge. Ruth is pregnant and full of murderous fury. Cloaked in ordinariness and with a sinister internal dialogue impelling her on, our highly cynical anti-heroine has a shape-shifting personality and a moral compass that’s gone AWOL. Alice Lowe’s directorial debut – made when Lowe herself was seven months pregnant – starts as a dark comedy, and just keeps getting darker.

DIR: DANIEL GORDON • UK • 2016 1 HR 32 MINS
He was football’s first rock and roll star – a handsome, charismatic Belfast boy who could thrill and excite the crowds with every turn of the ball. But George Best was also the lead in his own Shakespearean tragedy, a flawed genius, brought down by drink, temptation and depression. In this documentary, director Daniel Gordon (Hillsborough) recounts the tale of this beloved but be-devilled superstar with riveting, evocative footage and testimony by those who knew him at his best—and worst. The Best image featured on the cover is available as a poster from peterstrain.co.uk.
The 6.10pm screening on Fri 24 Feb will be followed by a Q&A with producers Trevor Birney and Brendan Byrne.
DANCER THURS 2 MAR, 6.30PM
DIR: STEVEN CANTOR • UK/RUSSIA/ UKRAINE/USA • 2016 • 1 HR 25 MINS
The UK premiere of Dancer, followed by a Q&A and performance by Sergei Polunin, broadcast live via satellite from the London Palladium. Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 21, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom – his talent more a burden than a gift. With archive footage and in-depth interviews, through to footage of Sergei’s life on and off the stage now, we witness every step of his journey.

GOODFELLAS FRI 17 – MON 20 FEB
DIR: MARTIN SCORSESE • USA 1990 • 2 HRS 25 MINS
“As far back as I could remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.” So begins Martin Scorsese’s modern classic, the story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) who in the mid-1950s was taken under the wing of local New York ItalianAmerican mobster, Paul ‘Paulie’ Cicero (Paul Sorvino) and his associates, the enigmatic James ‘Jimmy the Gent’ Conway (Robert De Niro) and aggressive hothead Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci). Described by Film4 as “Scorsese’s finest hour”, the film’s technical innovations and stellar soundtrack are vibrantly highlighted in a new 4K print.
TAXI DRIVER TUES 28 FEB – THURS 2 MAR
DIR: MARTIN SCORSESE • USA 1976 • 1 HR 34 MINS
Robert De Niro punches in for another shift as Travis Bickle, the insomniac Vietnam veteran struggling to navigate New York’s streets of vice in Martin Scorsese and Paul Schrader’s searing, seething state of the nation address. Taxi Driver defined the angst of 1970s America and Robert De Niro’s career-defining performance became the embodiment of confusion, alienation and simmering violence of the era. This re-release will see the film presented from a 4K digital restoration scanned from the original camera negative.

DIR: DAWN PORTER • USA • 2016 • 1 HR 21 MINS AGE: 18+
WANDA is thrilled to present a hugely important work from the feminist film canon, directed by Chantal Akerman. Starring Delphine Seyrig, the film follows the daily routine of widowed Jeanne as she cares for her grown-up son, does household chores and receives clients in the afternoon. The film was met with great critical success on its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1975, and propelled Akerman into a filmmaking career that would last until her sudden death in 2015.
Following the lives of abortion health care providers in the southern United States, Trapped reveals how recent legislation changes at best encroach on heath workers’ ability to care for patients and at worst lead to the closure of clinics. Director Dawn Porter embarked on the project when she heard the state of Mississippi had only one such clinic left. Along the way she found many warm and courageous health workers who feature in the film. The screening will be preceded by the short film Our Right To Choose (Dir. Hanan Dirya, 9 mins).

DIR: HAL ASHBY • USA • 1979 2 HRS 10 MINS

In one of his most finely tuned performances, Peter Sellers plays the pure-hearted, childlike Chance, a gardener who is forced into the wilds of Washington, D.C., when his wealthy guardian dies. Adapted from a novel by Jerzy Kosinski, this satire, both deeply melancholy and hilarious, is the culmination of Hal Ashby’s remarkable string of films in the 1970s.
With a post-screening discussion led by Dr Aaron Hunter (Media Studies, Maynooth University) and Robert JE Simpson (writer and film historian).

DIR: ALMA HAR’EL • USA • 2016 • 1 HR 22 MINS
DIR: MAKOTO SHINKAI • JAPAN • 2016 • 1 HR 46 MINS
A stunning new film from award winning director Alma Har’el, and featuring an original score by Flying Lotus, LoveTrue is a remarkably bittersweet documentary that follows three real life individuals and their stories, all of which involve the theme of ‘true love’. Alaskan girl Blake and her complex work life, young Hawaiian dad Willie, and New York busker Victory and her divided family. Dealing with the themes of age, loss of beauty and innocence, and nostalgia by using young actors to portray younger versions of its characters, LoveTrue is a remarkably honest piece that doesn’t pull any punches. – J.P.
Claimed to be Miyazaki’s successor, director Makoto Shinkai delivers Your Name, a body swap romance which was the most anticipated anime feature of 2016. The film follows the lives of Taki, a high school boy in the city, and Mitsuha, a girl who longs for Tokyo, as they inexplicably switch places. Dealing with themes such as identity and youth, this layered film blends both rom-com with sci-fi to deliver a stunning piece of animation which will have a lasting impact. – Thomas

SUN 26 FEB, 6.20PM DIR: MARTIN SCORSESE • USA • 1983 • 1 HR 49 MINS
Part biting satire, part disturbing character study, Martin Scorsese’s 1983 film The King of Comedy is an underrated masterpiece. Robert De Niro gives one of his greatest and most nuanced performances as the lonely and delusional Rupert Pupkin, who dreams of becoming a hit comedian. This haunting and hilarious movie has slowly risen in stature over the years and is now more relevant in today’s media obsessed society than ever before. One of my favourite films. – Matthew Followed by a CinePunked discussion. See page 10 for more Scorsese classics.
