1900 image

1900 (18)

Bernardo Bertolucci's 1900 (Novocento) presents a sweeping political epic of Italian history from 1901, the year Verdi died, up to the Liberation in 1945.

The film follows the stories of Alfredo Berlinghieri, the son of a wealthy landowner, and Olmo Dalco, whose family works on the Berlinghieri estate. Born on the same day, the two are bound by a close childhood friendship but are separated by social chasms and opposite destinies as they grow up during the turbulent interwar years.

1900 presents a critique of Italy's unequal social structure, which remained unchanged through half a century of war, racism, and liberation.

A Quiet Dream image

A Quiet Dream

As Part of the London Korean Film Festival: Teaser Screenings


Internationally acclaimed director Zhang Lu’s 11th feature film, A Quiet Dream revolves around the everyday lives of four friends - a young woman and three less-than-ordinary men. Yeri, the Chinese Korean immigrant, cares for her paralysed father whilst running the small ‘Hometown Bar’ in the impoverished Su-saek neighbourhood of Seoul. Ik-june is a former small-time gangster expelled for laughing during his boss’s funeral; Jong-bin is the milk-drinking, epileptic son of the Hometown Bar’s landlord and Jung-bum is an introverted North Korean defector who suffers from depression.


This film doesn’t follow a conventional narrative structure, but rather unfolds quietly as if taken from a small segment of their everyday lives, lives that are spent hanging out at Yeri’s bar. Although each has their own complex issues to deal with, they somehow muddle through with little more than friendship and laughter.


An interesting element to this film can be seen with the three male characters who are played by a trio of prominent Korean film directors of the same name. Each of the directors steps in front of the camera for A Quiet Dream to play a character that they had previously created in their earlier films, namely:  Ik-june from Breathless (2008), Jong-bin from The Unforgiven (2005) and Jung-bum from The Journals of Musan (2010). This adds to the film’s dreamy and mysterious texture, blurring the line between fantasy and what’s on screen and the reality outside of the screen.


Much lauded, the film opened last year’s Busan International Film Festival and was invited to the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2017.

Asunder

Presented by Heavenly Films


“… and then all the world began to roar.” Private William Finlay, Durham Light Infantry Regiment and Lincolnshire Regiment.


Asunder tells the story of what happened to an English town during the First World War, with almost all of its men fighting abroad and its women and children left behind. The North East was in the front line, thanks to its shipyards and munitions factories.


Using archive and contemporary footage and audio, Asunder collages the stories of people from Tyneside and Wearside to uncover just what life was like on the home front, with bombs falling on Britain for the first time, conscientious objectors sentenced to death, and women working as doctors, tram conductors and footballers.


The narrative moves from an Edwardian golden era, in which sport grew in popularity and aircraft and cars pointed to a bright new future, to a war that horrifically reversed this progress. In the Battle of the Somme, British, French and German armies fought one of the most traumatic battles in military history. Over the course of just four months, more than one million soldiers were captured, wounded or killed in a confrontation of unimaginable horror.


Narrated by Kate Adie, with a soundtrack composed by Mercury-nominated Field Music and Warm Digits.

Beginning of an Unknown Century

This two-part omnibus film was commissioned to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Revolution. Deemed too dark by Brezhnev's censors, the film was immediately shelved, and first shown only twenty years later in 1987.

Andrei Smirnov's episode, Angel, is a story of everyday heroism and brutality during the Civil War years of the 1920s. It follows a group of refugees fleeing the conflict, whose train is derailed and captured by bandits. In Larisa Shepitko's Homeland of Electricity a young mechanic is sent to a famine-stricken village in order to bring electricity to the people. The striking black-and-white visuals of the film are frequently compared to the works of Aleksandr Dovzhenko, Shepitko's master.

Black God White Devil (12A)

In this foundational film of Brazil's cinema novo movement, Glauber Rocha explores the climate of fear that gripped the country in the 1940s. The film is a parable of a peasant who, after killing his master, seeks salvation. Following a principle Rocha termed "Aesthetics of Hunger", the film unapologetically depicts desperate poverty and the brutality of working class life.

Shot with hand-held cameras in stark black-and-white, Rocha created a veneer of deliberate amateurism, which rejected prevalent Western filmmaking conventions of the time. Sequences of action dissolve into frenetic montages of split-second close-ups, designed to disorient and emotionally unsettle the viewer.

Danton (12A)

Andrzej Wajda's historical drama about the ideological battle between two of the French Revolution's titanic figures - Danton and Robespierre - is an intense political allegory about the futility of violent revolution.

Set in the second year of the French Revolution, the film recounts how Danton becomes the focus of revolutionary ire after criticising its terror. The film carries potent political resonances with Polish "solidarity" - a movement being repressed by the government at the time of production. Originally intended to be shot in Poland, the imposition of martial law in 1981, however, made filming in Wajda's homeland impossible.

Danny Saysis led by Fields’ voice and is largely crafted from over 250 hours of present-day interviews and items from Danny Fields’ immense archive (thousands of photographs, audio cassettes, ephemera).

I Am Not Your Negro image

I Am Not Your Negro

Kush Films in-conjunction with Altitude Entertainment, in these poignant times, are very proud to present a UK exclusive screening of  I Am Not Your Negro.


This acclaimed James Baldwin inspired documentary film comes from noted filmmaker Raoul Peck. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and with unprecedented access to James Baldwin’s original work, award-winning filmmaker Raoul Peck (Murder in Pacot, Moloch Tropical, Sometimes in April, Lumumba), has completed the cinematic version of the book Baldwin never wrote - a radical narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of Baldwin’s friends, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. 


Whilst it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, I Am Not Your Negro is about what it means to be black in America today. By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassinations of these three men we uncover a larger narrative of America’s historical and current denial and irrational relationship with race.


This ‘history of violence’ is also told through the long simplified narrative that Hollywood recounts as a story between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ or ‘right and wrong’, reflects our current racial precariousness. I Am Not Your Negro is also the autopsy of the American racial imagery and iconography.

I am Cuba image

I am Cuba (PG)

Soy Cuba

In this Soviet take on the Cuban revolutionary experience, Mikhail Kalatozov attempted to create a film as powerful as Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin. Set in the mid-1950s during the Batista dictatorship, the film traverses four loosely narrated stories portraying life in pre-revolutionary Cuba.

Shot in luscious black and white and demonstrating acrobatic camerawork, the film is an exhilarating visual experiment by Kalatozov and his cinematographer, Sergei Urusevskii, in what they termed ‘emotional camerawork’ - a technique to express characters' feelings through camera movements. The film remained practically unknown until it was rediscovered in the early 1990s, but is now until it was rediscovered in the early 1990s but is now considered a masterpiece of world cinema.

Weekend (18)

Jean-Luc Godard's scathing late-sixties satire presets a critique of bourgeois consumer culture. The film follows a couple who travel across the French countryside in the hope of snatching away an inheritance from a dying relative. Their journey is beset by a series of increasingly gruesome events as society starts to crumble under the weight of its own consumer preoccupations.

Rich in historical and literary references, Weekend is a compellingly nihilistic and surreally funny depiction of society reverting to savagery. Released less than a year before the student uprisings of May 1968, Godard's film captures the revolutionary spirit of the time.

This gripping political thriller chronicles the assassination of liberal Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963 and its cover up by military and government officials. The film is accompanied by a stirring score by Mikos Theodorakis, who was imprisoned at the time of the film's production. With its kinetic, rhythmic editing and expressive vérité photography, the film is a technical masterpiece.

On its release, Z immediately became one of the cinematic sensations of the late sixties, and was the first foreign film in 31 years to earn an Oscar nomination for best picture.
