A Woman Captured


  Wednesday 16 January 
    Director: Bernadett Tuza-Ritter
    Certificate: 12
    Runtime: 1hr 29mins 
    Release: 2017

Marish is a 53-year-old Hungarian woman who has been serving a family for a decade, working twenty hours a day without being paid. Forbidden to leve the house without permission, she is treated like an animal, with no bed to sleep in and only leftovers to eat. In one of the boldest investigative stories of recent years, Hungarian film-maker Bernadett Tuza-Ritter's shocking film shows, in almost full view, the exhaustion of being entrapped as a slave and what it takes to get out of it. 

‘The film is an outstanding personal and social-justice achievement.’ Charlie Phillips, The Guardian

Post-film Q&A session lead by Dr Carrie Ford from the Cambridge Centre for Applied Research in Human Trafficking. 


The Price of Everything


  Wednesday 20 February
    Directors: Nathaniel Kahn
    Certificate: 12
    Runtime: 1hr 38mins
    Release: 2018

The Price of Everything examines how the work of some artists draws huge multimillion-dollar bids at auction houses while the work of others goes barely noticed, exploring the increasingly blurred lines between creativity and commerce at a time when art has become a commodity traded like stocks, shares or property, and auction prices are skyrocketing. The film holds a mirror up to our values and our time, where everything can be bought and sold.

'A documentary for people who like Monet, money or both.' Charlotte O'Sullivan

Post-film Q&A session led by Mike Goldmark and Nigel Harpur from Oundle Arts Society.

Film screened with support from The Arts Society Oundle. 


A Plastic Ocean


  Wednesday 20 March
    Director: Craig Leeson
    Runtime: 1 hr 40 mins
    Release: 2016

Australian journalist Craig Leeson, whilst searching for the elusive blue whale, unexpectedly discovers significant plastic waste floating in the middle of the Indian Ocean.  Over the next four years, in collaboration with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists, Leeson travelled to twenty locations around the world to explore the fragile state of our oceans.  Superb shots of the marine environment contrast starkly with footage of heavily polluted cities and dumps full of plastic rubbish; this thought-provoking documentary also offers strategies that can be used to reduce its devastating impact.

‘The most important film of our time.’  David Attenborough

Post-film Q&A session led by Alan Rayden, Transition Oundle

Film screened with support from Transition Oundle. 


Nae Pasaran


  Wednesday 17 April 7.30pm
    Director: Felipe Bustos Sierra
    Certificate: 12A
    Runtime: 1hr 36mins
    Release: 2018

Edinburgh-based Chilean filmmaker Felipe Bustos Sierra successfully explores political protest in this wonderfully humane documentary about the Rolls Royce factory workers in East Kilbride who showed their solidarity with the people of Chile by refusing to fix the fighter jet engines used by Pinochet in the military coup of 1973. The film explores this modest act of rebellion in an admirably low-key way that emphasises the fundamental decency of the men who took a stand.  Reuniting the key players who risked their careers, the film shows how an act of oppression in a part of the world to which these men had no personal ties was still like a red rag to a bull.

'But what makes the film special is Sierra's ability to trace the real-world effect these men had by picking up the story in Chilie.' Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman

Post-film Q&A session.



Three Identical Strangers


  Wednesday 15 May 7.30pm
    Director: Tim Wardle
    Certificate: 12A
    Runtime: 1hr 36mins
    Release: 2018

In 1961 a team of psychiatrists led by Peter Neubauer worked with an adoption agency in the United States to split up a set of identical triplet boys, born to a teenage girl, and place them with families from different socio-economic backgrounds; they wanted to know how three boys with identical DNA would be affected by being brought up in different environments.  This documentary by British film director Tim Wardle traces the extraordinary lives of the triplets, who knew nothing of one another until being reunited by chance at the age of 19.

'That old adage of truth being stranger than fiction has never been more apt, nor so artfully explored, as in Tim Wardle's fascinating documentary.' Nikkie Baughan, The List.

Post-film general discussion.
