CAPTAIN FANTASTIC FRI 9 – THURS 22 SEPT

DIR: MATT ROSS • USA • 2016 • 1 HR 59 MINS

Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Road) stars as an idealistic father raising his children away from contemporary civilisation in the charming, eccentric Captain Fantastic from actor/ director Matt Ross. Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them. Reminiscent of Little Miss Sunshine in its study of a supposedly dysfunctional family finding

its way, and with a typically fine performance from Mortensen (as well as turns from Frank Langella, Kathryn Hahn and British actor George MacKay), Captain Fantastic is a heartwarming comedy/drama that looks at independence versus dependence, and the wisdom of bucking the system or joining in. “Finely wrought and inventive, Captain Fantastic surely earns the lofty praise of its title [...] heartfelt, comedic, gorgeous.”  - BRIAN MOYLAN, THE GUARDIAN ACCESS SCREENING The 6.20pm screening on Tues 20 Sept will include on-screen captioning (please note there will be no audio description for this film).

JULIETA FRI 26 AUG – THURS 8 SEPT

DIR: PEDRO ALMODÓVAR • SPAIN • 2016 1 HR 39 MINS • SUBTITLED

Pedro Almodóvar’s 20th feature film is a melodrama of loss and broken motherhood, painted in primary colours. Julieta is the story of a teacher played by Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte (as adult and young Julieta respectively). After the death of her husband, Julieta tries to find her daughter who inexplicably ran away from home aged 18. She writes her a long letter trying to explain family and personal secrets, and attempting to figure out destiny, guilt and the unfathomable mystery that leads some people to abandon those they love.

LA CHAMBRE BLEUE

THE BLUE ROOM FRI 23 – THURS 29 SEPT*

*NOT SCREENING ON WED 28 SEPT

DIR: MATHIEU AMALRIC • FRANCE • 2014 1 HR 15 MINS • SUBTITLED

Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) directs and stars in this impressive and impressionistic romantic thriller. Amalric plays Julien, a married man who runs foul of the law after an affair with a local femme fatale (played by co-writer Stéphanie Cléau). The film is tantalisingly sliced and pieced together through flashbacks, so you catch glimpses of his life unravelling and spiralling out of control. Amalric has crafted a mystery of savage tautness, cutting away all extraneous elements to leave the heart of a story that compellingly teases at the truth.

EL CLAN

In an affluent suburb of Buenos Aires in the early-80s, a seemingly normal family makes its living off kidnapping and murder. Welcome to the home of the Puccios - and the astonishing true story of Argentina’s most notorious crime family. “Audaciously entertaining… Martin Scorsese would immediately recognise a kindred spirit.”  - ROBBIE COLLIN, THE TELEGRAPH

JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY FRI 2 – SUN 4 SEPT

DIR:BRIANOAKES•USA•2016•1HR51MINS

In August 2014, a video of the public execution of American photojournalist James Foley rippled across the globe. That image challenged the world to deal with a new face of terror. Seen through the lens of filmmaker Brian Oakes, Foley’s close childhood friend, Jim takes us from small-town New England to the adrenaline-fueled front lines of Libya and Syria, where Foley pushed the limits of danger to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war. Jim is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion, and pain at the dawn of World War ISIS.

After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier’s sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: but the more he investigates, the stranger it gets… “Unexpected and brilliant.” – KATE LLOYD, TIME OUT

SECOND SIGHT/SPECIAL EVENTS

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH FRI 16 – THURS 22 SEPT

DIR: NICOLAS ROEG • UK • 1976 2 HRS 19 MINS

Newly restored in 4K, The Man Who Fell to Earth returns to UK cinemas for a 40th anniversary reissue. Directed by Nicolas Roeg and featuring a perfectly cast David Bowie as the otherworldly outsider of the film’s title, The Man Who Fell to Earth is a bold take on the science fiction genre and a striking addition to Bowie’s canon of oddball creations. The restoration has been in the works since late 2015, but is now especially timely and poignant following David Bowie’s death in January of this year.

DIR: JULIEN TEMPLE • UK • 2010 • 1 HR 16 MINS

Left over from the Cold War are a hundred million gallons of radioactive sludge, covering vast radioactive lands. Governments around the world, desperate to protect future generations from some of the most deadly and long-lasting substances ever produced, have begun to imagine society 10,000 years from now in order to create warning monuments that will speak across time. Part observational essay and part graphic novel, Containment weaves between an uneasy present and an imagined far future.

A documentary about the decay and industrial collapse of Detroit, formerly America’s fourth largest city. The city once referred to as the frontier of the American dream, and the Paris of the Midwest is now in ruins as a warning to the industrialised world. How did things go so wrong for Detroit and how can we avoid something like this from happening again?
