DROWNING IN PLASTIC – FREE SCREENING

Director Tom-Watt Smith – 2018 – 90mins

Introduced by the film’s writer/director, Tom Watt-Smith

Our blue planet is facing one its biggest threats in human history. Trillions of pieces of plastic are choking the very lifeblood of our earth, and every marine animal, from the smallest plankton to the largest mammals, is being affected. But can we turn back this growing plastic tide before it is too late? In this 90-minute special, wildlife biologist Liz Bonnin visits scientists working at the cutting edge of plastics research. She works with some of the world’s leading marine biologists and campaigners to discover the true dangers of plastic in our oceans and what it means for the future of all life on our planet, including us.

The screening will be followed by a Food-for-Thought panel discussion on the subject of plastic pollution and single-use plastics with representatives from our region who are involved with tackling this important issue.

Director Peter Greenaway – 1989 – 119mins
Starring: Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren, Tim Roth, Richard Bohringer

30th Anniversary Screening introduced by The League of Gentlemen actor/writer, Mark Gatiss (schedules permitting)

Sadistic gangster Albert Spica (Gambon), having recently acquired an upmarket French restaurant; proceeds to use it as his personal fiefdom in order to entertain thuggish cohorts and abuse patrons and staff alike seemingly oblivious to the effects his behaviour has on its reputation. The ensuing carnage is served up in Greenaway’s customary bold rich painterly style much like the haute cuisine being served. With costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier, the film is lavishly gastronomic and a timely reminder of a truly unique filmmaker at the very peak of his powers.

Midnight – The Riverside – Midnight Feast

THE EVIL DEAD (18)

Director Sam Raimi – 1981 – 85mins
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Hal Delrich

This year’s Midnight Feast presentation is Sam Raimi’s ultra low budget, cult classic. A byword in DIY filmmaking, The Evil Dead ushered in a new era of Horror and made Bruce Campbell a folk hero for the ages. The lack of money evidently never held back the crew and oodles of corn syrup and food colouring were poured over the cast to up the gore ante. Laced with a healthy dose of black humour it’s this, amongst many other reasons, that it’s justly celebrated as a landmark of the genre.
