  • 65 min

  • Directed by: Lotte Reiniger

The Battleship Potemkin

The Battleship Potemkin
  • 1925
  • USSR
  • 75 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Sergei Eisenstein
  • Written by: Nina Agadzhanova, Nikolai Aseyev, Sergei Eisenstein, Sergei Tretyakov
  • Cast: A Antonov, Vladimir Barski, Grigori Alexandrov.

Made for the 20th anniversary of the 1905 revolution, Eisenstein's all-time classic follows the mutiny by the crew of the Prince Potemkin and the support given by the local civilian population, who are mown down by the Czar's troops in the famous Odessa Steps sequence. Expressive camera technique and a grasp of editing that wrote the textbooks are just some of the innovations that first put Eisenstein and Soviet cinema firmly on the map.

  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian.

  • Switzerland, France
  • 66 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Claude Barras
  • Cast: Gaspard Schlatter (voice), Sixtine Murat (voice), Paulin Jaccoud (voice)

Icare (Schlatter) is a nine year old boy who gets placed in an orphanage after the death of his alcoholic mother.

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger
  • 2016
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
  • Cast: John Berger, Tilda Swinton,

Wonderful documentary comprising four essay-films about the writer John Berger, in which Swinton and fellow film-makers hang out with him and discuss what it calls his ‘radical, democratic humanism’. Each film is stand-alone but they form a lovely mosaic, being not just about Berger but also about how others respond to him.
