Matinee Classics - tickets just £1.75 for the over-55s

Preminger’s wartime update of Bizet’s opera Carmen is headed by Dorothy Dandridge, whose vibrant performance resulted in the first Oscar® nomination for an African- American actress in a leading role. She stars as the eponymous, smouldering temptress who lures handsome GI Joe (Calypso star Harry Belafonte) away from his sweetheart Cindy Lou (Olga James).

Updating the opera to World War II setting, Preminger took a major risk in shepherding this film into high-gloss CinemaScope production. But the risk paid off, with a star-making role for Dandridge, and becoming a hit on release. Relive the many classic numbers and marvel at how opera and simmering sexuality meld on screen.

London Korean Film Festival - Teaser Screening


Recent years have witnessed a boom in political dramas in Korea, with hits such as A Taxi Driver (2017) and 1987: When the Day Comes (2017) bringing in audiences in their millions. The second teaser in our showcase, based on the true events of the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, adds the dimension of a fast-paced financial thriller to this popular genre. Default is an affecting film that considers the human impact of the crisis alongside acerbic commentary.


The crisis occurred when large companies, aspiring to compete globally, began to take out massive loans for expansion projects. When these investments failed to achieve returns, a domino effect began that would result in nationwide debt and the impending crash of the economy...  


Set in the run-up to the nation’s so-called “Day of Humiliation” where negotiations for a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were concluded, Default follows three interwoven character arcs: a senior financial analyst at the Bank of Korea (Kim Hye-soo, Coin Locker Girl) struggling to do right amongst her negligent colleagues; a factory owner (Huh Joon-ho, The Merciless) swept into crisis when his main client falls into bankruptcy; and an opportunist (Yoo Ah-in, Burning) looking to profit from the nationwide catastrophe. Accompanying this impressive ensemble is international star Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) as the unyielding managing director of IMF.


Default is the ambitious second title from promising director Choi Kook-hee, who won Best First Feature at the Fantasia International Film Festival in 2017 with Split. Not only does it conjure gripping blockbuster entertainment from this dark period still fresh in the Korean consciousness but also, in a masterful move not unlike Adam McKay’s hit The Big Short, it offers insight into the economic intricacies of a disastrous event that would come to shape the course of Korean history.

Studio 54 was the epicenter of ‘70s hedonism - a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society.

Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf image

Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.

Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania. As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts centre in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, “your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.” Through poetic cinematography and unique access, Five Seasons will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.

Go Back and Get it: Seeking Sankofa image

Go Back and Get it: Seeking Sankofa

Presented by CREAM Screen


In the Akan language of Ghana the word Sankofa acts as an everyday instruction to 'go back and get it', when something has been forgotten and left behind. But it is also a powerful word to trigger memories, both personal and collective, where the past can be found in the present. It has found many interpretations in film, literature, art and song, such as LA Rebellion film-maker Haile Gerima's 1993 film Sankofa. The Creating Interference network, in association with CREAM, explores the resonances of this potent word in a programme of contemporary and archival film and video works. Led by the artist Barby Asante and film-maker, curator and DJ Rabz Lansiquot, this evening of films and discussion rethinks Sankofa as a social, collaborative, transformative process of interruption and disruption.


The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) is recognised as the UK's leading centre for research in visual and media arts, design and music. We are based in the University of Westminster’s College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries.

Goldblatt (PG)

Presented by The Photographers' Gallery


On the eve of the first anniversary since his passing, join us to commemorate South Africa’s foremost photographer David Goldblatt, with a rare screening of this first feature-length documentary of his extraordinarily prolific life and career.


South Africa through the eyes of David Goldblatt is an achingly beautiful place. From his early photographs of Apartheid South Africa to the removal of Rhodes’ statue from UCT, he has chronicled the country as faithfully as this film chronicles his life. In director Daniel Zimbler’s decade-spanning narrative, Goldblatt’s images are explored not just as a way to discuss the photographer’s personal life, but also to re-investigate the layered histories he captured.


Including interviews with Nadine Gordimer, Zanele Muholi and William Kentridge, Goldblatt is a meditation on identity, place and longing, offering an intimate portrait of both man and country. The screening is introduced by author and curator Mark Haworth-Booth, who also features.


Produced in association with Goodman Gallery, A4 Arts Foundation and Studio Merge, Goldblatt premiered at Encounters and Durban International Film Festival, and was nominated in the Best Documentary and Best Directing categories at the 2019 SAFTAs.

A rare and timely opportunity to see Safi Faye’s 1976 docu-drama Kaddu Beykat (Letter from my Village), considered to be the first feature film made by a Sub-Saharan African woman. Taking the form of a letter narrated by the filmmaker, the film is set in the filmmaker’s native village of Fadjal, Senegal, with the villages playing themselves.

Heavenly Films and BBC Arena team up to bring you two outstanding documentaries about London. This program is a special Save The Social event and all proceeds will go towards The Social, Little Portland Street which has recently been under threat of closure due to rent hikes and developers.


Old Kent Road (1985)

directed by Mary Dickinson for BBC Arena.


Notorious as the cheapest square on the Monopoly board, the Old Kent Road can be traced back to Roman times when it formed part of Watling Street, which led from Dover to Londinium. In the middle ages it became a route of religious pilgrimage for those journeying to Canterbury to visit the tomb of the martyred Thomas Becket. Mary Dickinson’s classic study of this historic thoroughfare was shot for the BBC Arena series in 1985, and provides a charming portrait of a lost world of eccentric South London characters and their emporia, many then on the brink of being edged out by drive-in fast food joints and Thatcherite redevelopment schemes.


The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Mary Dickinson hosted by Travis Elborough.



Finisterre (2003)

directed by Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans with a soundtrack by Saint Etienne.


Mapping a lived-in London of timeworn shops and cafés, derelict housing estates and long-since gentrified neighbourhoods, Finisterre, the first of much loved electro-pop trio Saint Etienne’s feature length collaborations with the acclaimed filmmaker Paul Kelly, offers a pitch-perfect homage to a city and its inhabitants.  


The film will be preceded by a Q&A with directors Kieran Evans and Paul Kelly plus Saint Etienne members Pete Wiggs and Sarah Cracknell.

Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts which he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures.

The latest film from Oscar-winning auteur Paolo Sorrentino, director of The Great Beauty and Youth.


"Steamy sex, exotic dancers, cocaine sniffing and raucous poolside parties – the life and times of Italy’s scandal-tainted former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi would appear to be natural material for a biopic.” - The Guardian

Nervous Translation image

Nervous Translation (PG)

8 year old Yael is a shy, contemplative girl, living in her own private world. She prefers writing letters rather than joining in with her cousins and dancing to the delight of family members. She lives at home with her mother, while her rock star uncle is the only father figure around her. Her absent father works in Saudi Arabia to help support the family back home. Her only connection with him is the recorded cassettes he sends her mother, which she listens to secretly and incessantly. One day she sees a TV advert for a pen that can translate nervous thoughts, so she starts saving and sets out to find this ‘magic’ pen.

Based on Shireen Seno’s own experience growing up within the Filipino diaspora, Nervous Translation is a portrait of a common experience of many Filipino families, where only fragments of each other are seen and heard. The film is set in 1988, capturing a significant period in Philippine history, drawing connections to the present day through familiar issues: the complexity of the family unit in light of migration, an obsession with consumer electronics and personal technology, and the sheer power of nature to remind us of our limits and what really matters.

O Lucky Man image

O Lucky Man (15)

Marking the 25th anniversary since the early death in 1994 of its legendary director, the fiercely independent Lindsay Anderson, this very special screening is followed by a conversation with award-winning writer (and great admirer) Jonathan Coe, alongside the film's editor David Gladwell. The afternoon is curated and hosted by Gareth Evans, Adjunct Moving Image Curator, Whitechapel Gallery.


The second film in Anderson's remarkable state-of-the-nation 'Mick Travis' trilogy, all written by the late David Sherwin, is a remarkably relevant and prescient allegorical attack on unfettered Capitalism, a music-driven satire that is truly unique and unforgettable.

"No less than an epic look at society, it is in the form of a human comedy on a perky, ambitious but conformist young man using society’s ways to get to the top. Malcolm McDowell, practically on screen throughout, is first a salesman, then guinea pig to science, assistant to a great business tycoon, railroaded to prison as a fall guy, converted to near saintliness, almost martyred and then returned to conformism by an almost mystical reaching of understanding through a Zen-Buddhist-like happening. The film bows to various film greats but always assimilated to Anderson’s own brand of epic comedy. The music and songs of Alan Price also add by underlining and counterpointing the action." - Variety.


Jonathan Coe is the multi award winning writer of many novels, including The Rotters' Club, The House of Sleep, What a Carve Up! and Middle England, as well as a biography of B.S. Johnson. David Gladwell is the legendary editor of Ways of Seeing, If..,., O Lucky Man! and Nineteen Nineteen, among many others, and a film-maker, best known for Requiem for a Village and Memoirs of a Survivor.

Portrait of Jason image

Portrait of Jason

The Photographers' Gallery

Join us for screening of the seminal American documentary A Portrait of Jason, presented in dialogue with the photographs of Dave Heath. The film and its themes of performance, alienation and authenticity, is introduced by transdisciplinary writer and academic Gavin Butt.


On 2 December, 1966, Shirley Clarke and a tiny crew convened in her apartment at the Hotel Chelsea to make a film. There, for twelve straight hours they filmed the one-and-only Jason Holliday as he spun tales, sang, donned costumes and reminisced about good times and bad behaviour as a gay hustler, sometime houseboy and aspiring cabaret performer. The result is a mesmerizing portrait of a remarkable, charming and tortured man, who is by turns hilarious and heart-breaking.


Ingmar Bergman called it “the most extraordinary film I’ve seen in my life,” and when first screened in a sneak preview, the audience included Tennessee Williams, Robert Frank, Norman Mailer, Andy Warhol, Arthur Miller, Ruby Dee, Rip Torn, Geraldine Page and Terry Southern.


Daring, provocative, ground-breaking and truly gripping, Portrait of Jason was one of the first LGBT films to be taken seriously by wider audiences. Part cinema verité and part fiction it remains one of the most remarkable films of American independent filmmaking.

Heavenly Films Present

THE BLUEBLACK HUSSAR


An engrossing portrait of a true English original, The Blueblack Hussar is Jack Bond’s ride through the world of Adam Ant. The iconic pop star, who was perhaps the biggest music star on the planet during his halcyon days in the 1980s, disappeared completely from public life when he suffered a recurrence of the depression that has inflicted him since he was a young man. Sectioned and forcibly sedated, few would have anticipated his return from this particularly tortuous exile. Featuring the likes of Charlotte Rampling, Mark Ronson, Allen Jones, John Robb and Jamie Reynolds, this is a film exploring the road back for a unique British pop star, one still channeling his Highwayman/Prince Charming persona and who has, against all the odds, got himself back to playing to huge audiences once again, unapologetically and without compromise.  The Blueblack Hussar is a hugely enjoyable tribute to a great musical legend.


The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director Jack Bond hosted by Travis Elborough

Soul Jazz Records presents  this rare film screening of They Call Me Mister Tibbs! (1970), the CLASSIC Blaxploitation film starring Sidney Poitier and a wicked soundtrack by Quincy Jones. Call Me Mister Tibbs is a superlative black action thriller made in 1970 and starring Sidney Poitier reprising his role as Virgil Tibbs from the earlier groundbreaking film In The Heat of the Night. With all the ingredients of the best Blaxploitation movies of the early 1970s - including an unbelievably funky soundtrack from Quincy Jones - Call Me Mister Tibbs  towers above the genre through the powerful performance of Sidney Poitier, at the time the highest paid and most prominent African-American actor working in Hollywood. Poitier’s character distills all the righteous anger and self-respect of the civil rights movement into his character, a black police officer working with the San Franciso police to track down the murder of a prostitute.
