Dog Called Money (15)

Dir. Seamus Murphy 2019 | 94 mins | UK, Ireland

Short copy:

As imaginative as the creative process it documents, this is a uniquely intimate journey through the creation of a PJ Harvey record.

Web copy:

As imaginative as the creative process it documents, this is a uniquely intimate journey through the inspiration, writing and recording of a PJ Harvey record.

Writer and musician Harvey and award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy hatched a collaboration. Seeking first-hand experience of the countries she wanted to write about, Harvey accompanied Murphy on his worldwide reporting trips, joining him in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington DC. Harvey collected words, Murphy collected images.

By capturing the immediacy of their encounters with the people and places they visited, Murphy shows the humanity at the heart of the work.

Shooting The Mafia

In Partnership With Italian Cultural Society Dir. Kim Longinotto 2019 | 94 mins | Italy

Short copy:

A fascinating feature documenting the years Letitzia Battaglia has spent interviewing and photographing the Sicilian Mafia.

Web copy:

Language: English and Italian

In the streets of Sicily, gutsy Letizia Battaglia pointed her camera straight into the heart of the Mafia that surrounded her and began to shoot.

Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia has spent years documenting the life and crimes of the Mafia. This fascinating documentary combines present day interviews with Battaglia, with archive footage and her own photography to paint a vivid portrait of her life and experiences. This audacious work brings grit, texture, and critical new perspective to Battaglia’s work and dismantles the romantic narrative of the Sicilian Mafia from the perspective of someone who lived inside it.

Steampunk Yule Ball 2019 - A Space Oddity

“No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinised as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us…” H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds

Join Fey Pink and her motley crew of intergalactic creatives from all corners of the galaxy for an unmissable night of SPACE ODDITIES – . Are you a Space Pirate looking for your crew? Or an Alien hunting Steampunk? Maybe you fancy yourself Ziggy Stardust for the night? Or a killer cyborg? If so, come and join our party of misfits, miscreants, and mischief makers. All welcome. All loved.

We will have some astronomical performances from the unsurpassable PROFESSOR ELEMENTAL; the interstellar GASLIGHT TROUBADOURS; the cosmological MEN WHO WILL NOT BE BLAMED FOR NOTHING; and introducing the “out of this world” SHE ROBOT.

Also joining us from the grave our very own Richard Burton(ish) as our Master of Ceremonies.

Cosmic tunes in the Bar from DJ’s PERFECT & LOUIE-LOUIE.

And moreover … get fire freaky with the extra-terrestrial Fire Hoopers!

Two Popes (12A)

Dir. Fernando Meirelles 2019 | 126 mins | Various

Short copy:

Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins portray two holy men, unfailing in their faith but capable of weakness all the same.

Web copy:

Languages: Latin, English, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, German
Subtitled

2012 and frustrated with the direction of the Catholic Church, Cardinal Bergoglio requests permission from the Pope to retire. Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences as these two very different men must find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world.

Staring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins, The Two Popes explores these holy men as men, unfailing in their faith but capable of weakness all the same. Director Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener, City of God) allows humour to flourish as we see the Two Popes tease each other, argue about football, acknowledge their own egos and struggles in connecting with God.
