The Conversation

The Conversation
  • 1974
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Written by: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Cast: Gene Hackman, John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Cindy Williams, Frederic Forrest, Harrison Ford, Robert Duvall

Harry Caul (Hackman) is a master of surveillance who works alone and is secretive to the point of paranoia. One day a routine wire-tapping job turns into a nightmare when Harry thinks he hears something disturbing in a conversation between a young couple. As he begins to worry that his tape may be used as a pre-emptive to murder, he breaks his own rigid rules by getting involved. Post Kent State, bang in the middle of the worst atrocities of Vietnam, Caul was a metaphor for the American middle-aged everyman, betrayed by his government, yet hated by a younger generation. A dark, existential thriller which has often been copied but never equalled.

Gyuto Monks

The Dalai Lama's Gyuto Monks of Tibet will be visiting the UK for a series of special Sacred Music Concerts "Open Mind, Loving Heart" in November and December 2017, blessing communities along the way and recording a new album. The Dalai Lama's world famous Gyuto Monks of Tibet are Masters of Tibetan Buddhist ritual and ceremony and are delighted to be returning to the UK for a series of special concerts to raise funds for their monastery in India which holds over 500 Tibetan refugee Monks. From Devon, through London, Oxford, Cambridge, Lancashire, Edinburgh to Oban on the West Coast of Scotland, The Gyuto monks will share their sacred chants and traditions with local communities across the UK in these one-of-a kind Christmas cultural performances. The Gyuto monks chant in a deep harmonic overtone, unique on the planet that has a positive impact on the listener and accorded them virtual rock star status around the world - a fact unrecognised and oblivious to them despite selling out to worldwide audiences from the Sydney Opera House, Australia, to opening the world famous Glastonbury Music Festival in 2016. To be in their presence is to experience pure love and acceptance without judgment. Millions around the world have benefitted from their music and tradition to open the mind and experience a profound and loving heart. Organiser Jean-Paul Mertinez of Illumina Studios & Media Ltd enjoys a special relationship with the monks, he says "I am honoured to be welcoming His Holiness' Gyuto Monks of Tibet back to the UK, they are very special people. To witness their culture and chanting concerts in community settings is to be transported and connected to a 600year old living musical tradition that I'm sure is as powerful and profound today as it was way back then." The special one off performances of connection, love and compassion, connecting with the sacred through the Tibetan chants and traditional Tibetan Instruments is not to be missed! All ages welcome to join these special celebrations.
