  • Triangle Of Sadness - Sunday 4th December 5pm

    28 November 2022

    In Triangle Of Sadness we follow two 'beautiful people' onto a freebie aboard a fabulously rich yacht with VERY wealthy people aboard, including some capitalist Russians. Captained by a disillusioned Marxist (Woody Harrelson), the crew have been told they cannot say 'no' to any request. All goes, well, swimmingly, until a huge storm hits and their worlds are turned upside down...

    "An absurd, iconoclastic riot. Ruben Östlund’s point may be blunt — yep, rich people are bad — but his telling of it is hilariously, breathlessly entertaining." - John Nugent, Empire Magazine

  • The Gravedigger's Wife - Sunday 27th November 5pm

    21 November 2022


    Winner of many awards around the world's film festivals and the Somali entry for the Oscars, "The Gravedigger's Wife is a beautiful love letter to the power of family" (Marya E Gates, RogerEbert.com)

    "A handsome, widescreen fable about family bonds and financial insecurity, this Somali-language film’s simplicity and economy is its power." - Wendy Ide, The Observer

     

     

  • Vesper - Sunday 20th November 5pm

    14 November 2022


    Vesper is a 13-year-old girl trying to rebuild a dying world. "Set in 'the new dark ages' — a ruined tomorrow in which the engineered viruses and organisms that humanity created in order to stem the planet's ecological crisis have escaped into the wild and remade life on Earth into a dreary (but awesome) Cronenbergian wasteland full of fleshy droids, bioluminescent critters, and trees whose spores try to suck out your internal tissue while you sleep — Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper's 'Vesper' has already drawn several comparisons to the likes of 'Stalker' and the Andrei Tarkovsky-inspired 'Annihilation.' It’s easy to see why.

  • The Woman King - Sunday 13th November 5pm

    7 November 2022

    This week we are taken back to Africa, the Kingdom of Dahomey in 1823 when the Agojie defended the kingdom against the Oyo Empire. 'So what?' you might say, but the Agojie were an elite unit of ALL FEMALE warriors. On one level, this is a blockbuster historic war movie, disguising a black feminist story; a big hitter with a social conscience.

    "The Woman King isn't intended to be any ordinary account of history. It is a vibrant, restorative celebration of Black womanhood in all its glory" - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent.
