Beats (18)

1994. Best mates Johnno and Spanner share a deep bond, forged through childhood. Now on the cusp of adulthood, life is destined to take them in opposite directions. But this summer is going to be different for them, and for the country. In pursuit of adventure and escape, the boys head out on one last night together that will change them forever.


"a rollicking buddy movie, both funny and stomach-churning as it follows two gawky 15-year-old lads seeking a debauched sendoff to childhood." - Variety

Black Orpheus image

Black Orpheus (PG)

Soul Jazz Records Cinema Club

Simply one of the best films ever about Brazil with the best music ever! A fantastic film based on the play by Brazilian poet, diplomat, singer Vinicius de Moraes is a modern (in 1959) reinterpretation of the myth Orpheus which simultaneously celebrates the beauty, music and people of Brazil. The music for the film created by Moraes, Antonio Tom Jobim and Luis Bonfa signifies the birth of Bossa Nova with some of the most beautiful songs ever heard. Orpheus is a streetcar conductor and Carnival dancer betrothed to the determined Mira but in love with Eurydice. As Mira and Death himself pursue the doomed Orpheus and his lover through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Carnival literally brings the streets to life.

Here you will hear samaba, batucada, witness authentic Candomble religious ceremonies, the beauty of Brazil and more in this incredible tale set in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Black Orpheus won the Palme d'Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival.

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.

Ted: handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. Liz: a single mother, cautious, but smitten. A picture of domestic bliss, the two seem to have it all figured out. That is until Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. As concern turns to paranoia, Liz is forced to consider how well she knows the man she shares a life with and, as the evidence piles up, decide if Ted is truly a victim, or actually guilty as charged.

Now married with a young son, she and her husband Iku appear to be happy together, but Yumiko’s life is abruptly changed by her husband’s sudden death – and was it an accident or suicide?

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.

Monte (a quietly wonderful Robert Pattinson) is one of a group of prisoners who volunteer for a long-term space mission. Subject to experiments in human reproduction by a doctor with secrets of her own, the ship is a fraught environment. Claire Denis’ take on the science-fiction genre is both earthy and haunting, melancholic and hopeful, brutal and beautiful.

London Double Bill (15)

Presented by Heavenly Films


Followed by a Q&A with the directors and members of Saint Etienne


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.

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.

One of the pinnacles of British silent cinema, Piccadilly is a sumptuous showbiz melodrama seething with sexual and racial tension. The Chinese-American screen goddess Anna May Wong stars as Shosho, a scullery maid in a fashionable London nightclub whose sensuous tabletop dance catches the eye of suave club owner Valentine Wilmot. She rises to become the toast of London and the object of his erotic obsession - to the bitter jealousy of Mabel, his former lover and star dancer (played by Ziegfeld Follies star Gilda Gray).


The film will be accompanied by a live soundtrack, performed by Donald MacKenzie on our original 1936 Compton cinema organ


"Piccadilly, restored to its original glory, was a genuine revelation to me. It's a bold, beautifully crafted, completely modern picture... One of the truly great films of the silent era." - Martin Scorsese

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.

The Wall image

The Wall (15)

To commemorate 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Open City Documentary Festival presents a screening of acclaimed filmmaker Jürgen Böttcher’s seminal documentary, The Wall.


Filmed between 1989 and 1990, Böttcher’s impressionistic, painterly study traces the Wall in the days leading up to and during its destruction, as demolition machinery moves in and Berliners begin dismantling it by hand, chipping away at its edifice with small hammers and chisels. Focusing on iconic locations in the centre of Berlin such as the Postdamer Platz, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, Böttcher reimagines the wall as a screen, projecting historic archival images onto it’s crumbling side: Emperor Wilhelm's ride through the Brandenburg Gate, the torch-lit procession of the Nazis, the famous image of an East German policeman filmed fleeing to the West in 1961 and, finally, the fall of the Wall itself. Böttcher’s singular images serve as a vital historical record and a poetic contemplation on the symbolic significance of the boundary between east and west and its moment of collapse.


The screening will be followed by a panel discussion between experts in film and architecture exploring cinematic and artistic representations of the Berlin Wall in Böttcher’s work and beyond.

Soul Jazz Records Cinema Club


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.


The film will be introduced by Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) and Soul Jazz Records DJs will also be playing heavy funk and soul tunes in the bar before and after the film.
