Slam (15)

The London Australian Film Society is proud to present – direct from the Sydney Film Festival – the UK premiere of Partho Sen-Gupta’s Slam (2018), an extraordinary mystery drama about family, identity, and Islamophobia in Australia.


The comfortable life of Sydney café owner and Muslim refugee Ricky (Adam Bakri) is thrown into chaos when his estranged sister Ameena (Danielle Horvat) – a highly politicised, hijab-wearing slam poet – goes missing after a performance. As the search for Ameena intensifies, Ricky is forced to re-evaluate his own identity, whilst doing battle with a right-wing media intent on framing his family as extremists.


Stunningly shot, this complex examination of race and identity in contemporary Australia is aided by a superb ensemble cast led by Rachael Blake ( Lantana, Sleeping Beauty). A tough but honest look at the harsh realities of a ‘multicultural’ nation, this gripping drama invests a necessary complexity in its depiction of Australia’s own ‘hostile environment’.


This special screening will be followed by a panel of media commentators, scholars, and activists (TBA) discussing a range of issues, from screen representation to the broader contexts of Islamophobia in Australia and Britain.

Premiere


Trailblazer. Inspiration. Survivor. Suzi Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock ‘n’ roll when she broke through around the world in 1973.


The trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of female rock musicians who followed her, Suzi Q reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent pop-rock hits. Testimony is duly made by a string of rock luminaries, with focus on the women who followed the roadmap Suzi charted for them.


Exiled to Europe during her success yet now largely forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit. Exploring the long simmering family tensions and sibling rivalries that result from the success of one family member, Suzi Q reveals the price paid for success in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition and resilience.


Still on the road after 50 years, Suzi Quatro surely is The Queen of Rock’n’Roll. Accept no substitutes.

The Brink image

The Brink (15)

When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post — though some say he still has a direct line to the White House — he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement.

The Lehman Trilogy image

The Lehman Trilogy (12A)

National Theatre - Live


The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.

On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.


This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.

Under the Skin (15)

Part of INK ON SCREEN – The Mayfair & St James Literary Festival Cinema Strand – exploring the power of words on screen


Introduced by Tobias Menzies, produced by Asterisk Films and Justine Waddell.


Loosely based on the cult novel by Michael Faber, Jonathan Glazer’s 2013 film starring Scarlett Johansson, is a startling dystopian fable about an alien woman who drives around Scotland picking up random men who she drugs and delivers to her home planet. A dark and satirical meditation on factory farming, nature, and what it is to be a merciful human being, the film also boasts breathtaking cinematography from Daniel Landin and a remarkable score from Mica Levi.  


INK ON SCREEN


Aims to spotlight the indelible link between cinema and the written word. This inaugural season will be curated by Tobias Menzies, star of Casino Royal, Game of Thrones, Outlander, and most recently, Prince Phillip in the Crown. Ink on Screen is personal and quixotic, with Tobias’ choices being based on years of watching films, reading film scripts and a career creating indelible characters. The season will also include introductions and Q&A’s with Tobias and contributors from the chosen films, to open up the link between the written word and what we see on screen.

Upstairs Planet: Cleaners from Venus & Universe of Martin Newell image

Upstairs Planet: Cleaners from Venus & Universe of Martin Newell (15)

UPSTAIRS PLANET: Cleaners From Venus & The Universe of Martin Newell


This is the World Premiere of Graham Bendel's latest film, the third in a trilogy of 'rugged individualists' who've rocked the fringes and occasionally crossed over into the musical mainstream.


Martin Newell is a raconteur, poet, musical genius and the Godfather of Lo-Fi.

'Upstairs Planet' is about the greatest band from the 1980s you've possibly not heard of: Cleaners From Venus. Funny, moving and hugely entertaining, it's about a relatively unknown  - but hugely talented -  cult 80s musician who has been a tremendous influence on many well-known acts and admired by a whole host of others (John Cooper Clarke, XTC, Ariel Pink, Mac DeMarco, etc).


Will he ever get the credit that he so richly deserves? Does he even want that approval? In the meantime, reaching a wider audience is threatened by health setbacks and, quite probably, his irascible temperament.  Find out more about the 'Greatest Living Englishman' and his unique & eccentric take on the world.

Previous documentaries from director Graham Bendel have been on Vic Godard/Subway Sect & Billy Childish, which have been screened all over the world.


+ Short film by JF Whitney on Billy Childish (I'm Hurting/ The Bitter Cup)  5 mins 12 secs


Plus live special guest: Martin Newell, in a rare London performance, will perform a short set after the film.  


Music before and after in the Bar from DJs: (including:  

special guest DJ Richard Norris (The Grid/Beyond The Wizards Sleeve) who'll be playing a psychedelic & suitably eclectic set.
