"An intimate portrait of a reluctant hero" - New York Post
A small town among the mountains of Trentino. A group of old ladies ("Funne" stands for "girls" in local dialect) who dedicated their lives to the family and have never seen the sea. Erminia, their leader, decides to start a crowdfunding to finance a trip to the seaside. An apparently simple journey but with a strong idealistic meaning. A funny and poetic documentary which tells a true story like the fairytale it became.
The screening will be introduced by Journalist and Writer Daniela De Rosa.

Undead Sun and We Put The World Before You look back at the aftermath of the First World War, and the huge technological and cultural transformations it brought in its wake.

Jane and Louise will discuss their work and the legacy of early cinema and its technologies.
Can magic mushrooms cure depression?
Over 2 years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to the first ever medical trial to give psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms) to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression.
His remarkable film follows three of the volunteers and their families, and the ambitious staff running the trial, who are hoping this controversial treatment will have the power to transform millions of lives.
With deeply moving footage of the “trips” the patients go on, this intimate film is an absorbing portrait of the human cost of depression, and the inspirational people contributing to groundbreaking psychedelic research.
Followed by a Q&A with Magic Medicine director Monty Wates, and contributor Professor David Nutt.
Psychology at the Movies
Christopher Nolan launched his career with this mind-bending neo-noir. Guy Pearce stars as the amnesiac who can’t form new memories. On the hunt for revenge, but only able to retain information for a short period, he relies on polaroids and tattoos to track his own investigation.
After the film there will be an audience discussion with a panel of guest speakers to discuss issues and themes from the film.
“There's grade A work from all concerned, especially Pearce, but in the end this is Nolan's film. And he delivers, with a vengeance.” - Time Out
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Jack Bond
The first feature-length film starring the Pet Shop Boys, It Couldn’t Happen Here finds Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe on an extraordinary odyssey from the coast to London encountering the likes of Barbara Windsor, Gareth Hunt and Joss Ackland on a journey that is in turns brightly comic and darkly sinister.
Inventively directed by Jack Bond (An Artist’s Eye, Anti-Clock), the only filmmaker ever invited to collaborate on a documentary with Salvador Dali, It Couldn't Happen Here is a mordantly funny prime slice of pop surrealism and a deeply English take on the road movie. The film is chock full of songs from the group’s classic first two albums, including the hits “West End Girls: and "What Have I Done to Deserve This?"
Hardly ever screened and, to date, never issued on DVD, this is a rare chance to catch this unique late eighties cinematic gem from synth-pop’s most intelligent, enduring and much-loved performers. As the critic Anthony Nield has observed: ‘What other film offers up muscle men, mud wrestlers, thigh-flashing nuns and the fleeting glimpse of Neil Tennant in a tasselled gold lame suit?’ Miss this screening at your peril.
A darkness swirls at the centre of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
"Suspiria is a film of rare and unfettered madness, and it leaves behind a scalding message that's written in pain and blood: The future will be a nightmare if we can't take responsibility for the past." - David Ehrlich, indieWire
Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III encore screening as part of National Theatre
It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.
The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey).
