A Syrian Love Story

 
a syrian love story 01

  Wednesday 21 February 7.30pm
    Director: Sean McAllister
    Certificate: 12A
    Runtime: 1hr 16min 
    Release: 2015
    

Awarded the Grand Jury Prize at Sheffield Doc/Fest, this searing film is an intimate portrait of love and the loss of a homeland. Amar meets Raghda in a Syrian prison cell, where they communicate through a pinhole in the wall and fall in love. This film helps us to understand why people are literally dying for change in the Arab world. When the pair achieve political asylum in the French town of Albi, their travails are not over, as the separation from Syria leads to increasing domestic dissonance and Raghda’s mental universe unravels. 

This film should be seen in conjunction with Ai Wei Wei’s all-encompassing tragedy of the global refugee crisis, Human Flow, to be shown at St Peter’s Church, Oundle on the following Saturday, 24th February.

  Wednesday 21 March 7.30pm
    Directors: David McIlvride, Roger Williams
    Runtime: 1hr 35mins
    Release: 2017
 

RiverBlue follows international conservationist, Mark Angelo, and spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most polluting industries – fashion. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and toxic chemical waste, one of the world’s favourite, iconic products - denim - has destroyed rivers and changed the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

Narrated by clean-water supporter Jason Priestley, this ground-breaking documentary shines light on the damage to the world’s rivers and demands significant changes from the textile industry, yet also suggests solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.

Cameraperson

  Wednesday 18 April 7.30pm
    Director: Kirsten Johnson
    Certificate: 15
    Runtime: 1hr 43min
    Release: 2017
 

A boxing match in Brooklyn; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment: these are just a few of the scenes woven into the award winning Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage that is the result of the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions and extraordinary camera work, Johnson looks at the tension between objectivity and the intervention of the camera. It is a film that combines documentary, autobiography and ethical inquiry, thus providing a moving glimpse into one film-maker’s personal journey.

Our Last Tango

  tango3

  Wednesday 16 May 7.30pm
    Director: German Kral
    Runtime: 1hr 25min
    Release: 2015
    

Argentinian Tango has become a universal phenomenom over the last hundred years, with its mix of rhythm and sensuality. This film looks at this extraordinary dance through the story of two of its greatest protagonists: Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years, until a painful separation tore them apart. In German Kral’s Buena Vista style study, the virtuosos reunite to tell their story to young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

‘A documentary that both celebrates and challenges the passions of dance.’ Abbey Bender, Village Voice
