Programme

Thursday 10th May

1:30pm:

The Tempest (15)

UK 1979 91m. Dir: Derek Jarman. 

Jarman brings sumptuous visual style and a measure of the punk spirit that informed Jubilee to this cinematic version of the Shakespeare text. Festival guest Toyah Willcox plays Miranda, who has been banished to a desolate island with her father Prospero (Heathcote Williams) by Alonso, King of Naples (Peter Bull). Prospero’s plans for revenge are complicated when Miranda falls in love with the king’s son Ferdinand (David Meyer). If you discount the very loose sci-fi adaptation Forbidden Planet this was the big screen’s first version of the play.

3:00pm:

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.

Music On The Run (Advised 15)

Netherlands 2016 56m. Dir: Frans Bromet.

In the refugee camp at Calais, a clear man's voice resounds. Full of melancholy, he sings: 'I'm here, but my soul is across the sea' offering a striking description of the mood the thousands of refugees are in, many of whom have been camping out here for months. In the makeshift encampment, the hope of a better life has been replaced by fear, sorrow and apathy. What remains is music. Out of protest, solidarity or melancholia. This documentary examines how music gives the occupants of the camp back their dignity.
