The Alpinist

The Alpinist
  • 2021
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen

If you enjoyed Free Solo or Touching the Void, then The Alpinist is the one for you - a documentary guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.

Marc-Andr Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23-year-old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. Yet, he draws scant attention. With no cameras, no rope, and no margin for error, Marc-Andr's approach is the essence of solo adventure. Intrigued by these quiet accomplishments, veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall) sets out to make a film about Marc-Andr. But the Canadian soloist is an elusive subject: nomadic and publicity shy, he doesn't own a phone or car, and is reluctant to let the film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. As Peter struggles to keep up, Marc-Andrs climbs grow bigger and more daring. Elite climbers are amazed by his accomplishments, while others worry that he is risking too much. Then, Marc-Andr embarks on a historic adventure in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing.

The Alpinist is an intimate documentary of a visionary climber who follows the path of his own passion, despite the heaviest of possible consequences.

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch
  • 2018
  • Canada
  • 1h 27min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky

In their follow-up to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark (TOAFF14 ), photographer Edward Burtynsky and his artistic collaborators Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier offer a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the Earth.

Whether or not one adheres to the concept of the Anthropocene, which seeks to recognise the “human signature” on the Earth’s geology and has raised vigorous and passionate international debate, the sheer scale of our massive reengineering of the surface of our planet is brought to light in astonishing perspective in this stunning documentary.

Spanning numerous countries, Anthropocene lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction, revealing how our mania for conquest defines our relationship to the Earth — and how we have created a global epidemic.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Blade Runner
  • 2007 (1982)
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

The Maltese Falcon

The Maltese Falcon
  • 1941
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Huston
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Gladys George, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet

Huston's first film is a quintessential, claustrophobic film noir. Bogart is caught in a web of deceit and betrayal as the Fat Man uses every means, including murder, to get his hands on the elusive ornament of the title. Forget the twists and turns of Dashiell Hammett's plot; enjoy instead the darkly comic world peopled by Sam Spade and Joel Cairo.

Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Dir. Ric Burns | 2019 | 111 mins |  Colour | USA | English | 15

London-born Oliver Sacks was a man of extremes. In his youth, he was a self-destructive, bodybuilding biker struggling with drug addiction and his own sexuality. In his maturity, he became a pioneering neurologist and the author of best-sellers such as Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat.   Filmed with full access to the man himself, and those closest to him OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE both celebrates Sacks incredible life and reminds us of his most important teaching: that our ability to connect with others is what truly makes us human.

The event release will include a pre-recorded Q&A with a panel of experts, colleagues and friends of Oliver Sacks.

Why you should see it: because it is a tender, joyous and life affirming portrait of a truly extraordinary man
