Sunday 29th July Mike Pruss Talk Fully Booked
A strange thing happened to the website – it reverted to a version back in March/April time. I’ve now brought it back up to date. The important thing to know is that today’s special talk and film showing by Mike Pruss of Ridley Scott’s Scott Free production company, is now fully booked.
The introduction will be at 7:15 with the film “Equals” starting at 7:30. After the film we’ll have a talk and Q&A with Mike.
All of you who have let us know that you’ll be there, we look forward to seeing you at the Malt Hall on this horrid wet windy day.

8.00pm The Other Side of Hope (2017; Finnish/Arabic, subtitled)
Dir Aki Kaurismäki (Finland) 1hr 40mins. Colour, 12A
Finland’s master of deadpan comedy, Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre), presents the story of an unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. Winner of the Berlin Silver Bear for Best Director, it’s a beautiful, timely film from one of the world’s leading auteurs.This refugee drama artfully blends poignancy with torrents of laughter (Curzon; Telegraph; Guardian).
Sunday 13th May 2018 8.00pm
The Olive Tree (2016; Spanish/German, subtitled)
Dir Icíar Bollaín (Spain/Germany) 1hr 40mins. Colour; 15
A young woman decides to rescue her grandfather’s olive tree, sold to a German company as a green symbol, in Icíar Bollaín’s (Even the Rain) low-key, sweet-natured, heartfelt film. Commentary on a changing Europe – and especially a socially and economically forlorn Spain – underpins The Olive Tree, but the human relationships are most poignant here, especially the one between Alma and her ailing grandfather.(Guardian; Timeout)
