Jubilee (15)

UK 1978 106m. Dir: Derek Jarman

When Queen Elizabeth I (Jenny Runacre) asks her court alchemist John Dee (Richard O’Brien) to show her the future of England she is transported forward 400 years to 1978. She arrives to discover a post-apocalyptic society on the brink of collapse where girl gangs rove the streets indulging in casual murder, the police are openly fascistic, and public opinion is manipulated by all-powerful media moguls. Forty years on from its first release Derek Jarman’s Jubilee remains the quintessential punk film, a daring and unique vision, featuring many icons of the punk era including festival guest Toyah Willcox, Little Nell, Wayne Country, Jordan, Adam Ant and many more.

Marisa In The Woods (Advised 15)

Spain 2017 83m. Dir: Antonio Morales

35 year old playwright Marisa is avoiding her own problems by focusing on her friend Mina’s troubles following a relationship breakdown.

This debut film from director Morales is a subtly amusing and heartfelt character study.

Hunter's Crossing (Advised 15)

USA 2017 76m. Dir: Zach Zeman.

In this funny and offbeat mockumentary we are introduced to amateur hunter and bona fide idiot Hank Williams. Hank wants to win a hunting competition and will go to almost any lengths to do so. His lust for glory will lead him to team up with a bigfoot hunter and a slayer of bears to take down the competition.

The Man Who Always Did His Part (Advised 15)

Ecuador 2017 95m. Dir: Orisel Castro & York Neudel.

In this documentary, we are invited to spend some time in the company of the 78 year old Dr. Rota. He dreams of fame but is full of internal conflict. After years spent locking himself away at home he has written a book and feels it will bring him the fame and legacy he deserves. This character study is revealing of the many contradictions at the heart of a fascinating and sometimes less than politically correct figure.

Jeune Femme (15) - PREVIEW SCREENING

France 2017 97m. Dir: Léonor Serraille.

31-year-old Paula (rising star Laetitia Dosch) is broke with nothing but her pet cat to her name and no idea what path she should follow in life. Returning to Paris after a long time away, she intends to stay with photographer and old flame Joachim but finds she is not welcome. She ends up on aimless odyssey, crashing on floors and encountering many different people, all of whom have different views on where Paula is going wrong in her life. This debut film of director Léonor Serraille who, working with an almost completely female crew, has created a character study that is both stylish and memorable.

Backstage Jazz Mystery (Advised 15)

Russia 2017 70m. Dir: Anton Sukharev.

In this experimental film, shot in glistening black and white, a young saxophonist attends a school graduation celebration in St. Petersberg. Different versions of the same events unfurl as reality, illusion, dream and mystery intermingle leaving the audience to consider what is real and what is not as they are confronted by one astoundingly original image after another.
