At Eternity's Gate

  • 12A

Screening as part of our Beacon Season.Willem Dafoe gives a magnificent, Oscar nominated performance as Vincent Van Gogh in painter-filmmaker Julian Schnabels (Before Night Falls, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) portrait of the famously troubled post-Impressionist artist, whose virtuosic talent went largely unrecognised in his lifetime.Shot on location in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhne and Auvers-sur-Oise in the south of France, it follows Van Gogh through the difficult final years of his life as he struggles to make a living, to maintain bonds with the people in his life - including his brother Theo (Rupert Friend) and painter Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac), with whom he shares a complex friendship - while completing some of his most important works and dreaming of the longevity his art might have beyond its cool contemporary reception.Dafoe delivers a performance of great integrity and wisdom as a wildly talented but difficult, profoundly lonely and morally ambiguous man, capable of menacing behaviour and violent acts (including the famous ear episode).A very heartfelt film, At Eternitys Gate pushes its sympathetic imagination inside the mind of the artist to depict Van Goghs ecstatic, almost spiritual creative response to the beauty of the natural world alongside his tremendously painful sense of exile and isolation.Dafoe adds another masterful performance to his resume; his work here is as deep and as piercing as his performance in The Last Temptation of Christ more than 30 years ago. Detroit NewsWillem Dafoe gives a magnificent performance as the troubled Van Gogh in Julian Schnabels gloriously artistic film.

Donbass

Donbass, from director Sergei Loznitsa (A Gentle Creature), winner of the Cannes Un Certain Regard Prize for Best Director at the 2018 festival is screening as part of our Beacon World Cinema Season.In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside killings and robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by separatist gangs.In the Donbass, war is called peace, propaganda is uttered as truth and hatred is declared to be love.A journey through the Donbass unfolds as a chain of curious adventures, where the grotesque and drama are as intertwined as life and death. This is not a tale of one region, one country or one political system. It is about a world, lost in post-truth and fake identities. It is about each and every one of us.Constructed from 13 episodes, Loznitsas engrossing drama Donbass provides a unique take on one of the most disturbing and threatening of contemporary conflicts. After watching amateur videos posted on the internet, Loznitsa constructed his own screenplay, referencing the format of TV reports and the frequent construction of fake news. Donbass is enthusiastically acted, sometimes deliberately theatrical and something of a grotesque tour de force. Its all brilliantly, if harrowingly, imagined with stunning imagery courtesy of expert cinematographer Oleg Mutu.Director: Sergey LoznitsaGermany/Ukraine 2018Run time: 110 mins

However, when Lauras teenage wild child daughter Irene goes missing, old secrets and bitter grudges emerge that turn the trip into a psychological nightmare. As you would expect from Farhadi, there is a complex puzzle at the heart of the script involving past entanglements with local vineyard-owner Paco (Javier Bardem). Supremely watchable, much of the pleasure in following how this taut thriller unravels is to observe what it reveals about the motivation of the characters in their own lives….the performances themselves are so intelligent, mature and yet uninhibited. Farhadis storytelling has overpowering force.

Exhibition On Screen: Van Gogh & Japan

This is the final film in the current season of Exhibition On Screen, the new season will announced soon!Van Gogh JapanI envy the Japanese Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based - Van Gogh Japan at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why.Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh.Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan - through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists - Van Goghs encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction.After leaving Paris for the south of France - to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors.In this little known story of Van Goghs art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.Director: David BickerstaffRun time: 85 mins

The Kindergarten Teacher

  • 12A

Maggie Gyllenhaal gives arguably her best performance yet in Sara Colangelos (Little Accidents) superb new drama. Winner of the Directing Award at Sundance 2018, it adapts Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapids 2014 film of the same name (and features Lapid himself as executive producer), switching the primary protagonist from a student to a teacher, and from a masculine to a feminine viewpoint.Caring, patient Staten Island kindergarten teacher Lisa Spinelli (Gyllenhaal) spends her days teaching a class of precocious youngsters and her evenings attending poetry classes in Manhattan; while navigating a marriage devoid of chemistry and her own disinterested children at home. When she inadvertently discovers her five-year-old student, Jimmy (Parker Sevak) is a gifted prodigy, she becomes determined to nurture his talent before his dismissive family destroy it - but her desire to do so sets her on a dangerous and desperate path.Both a nuanced trip into the psyche of a disillusioned woman and a remarkably tense thriller, The Kindergarten Teacher is a fantastically compelling moral drama; an unpredictable, really daring film that benefits immensely from Gyllenhaals intelligent acting and ripples with psychological depth.A brilliantly observed ethical pretzel about a poetically gifted kid ★★★★★ The GuardianDirector: Sara ColangeloUSA 2018Cast:Maggie Gyllenhaal, Parker Sevak, Rosa Salazar, Gael Garcia BernalRun time: 99 mins

Out Of Blue

Patricia Clarkson stars as a New Orleans detective trying to solve a murder mystery in director Carol Morleys unmissable adaptation of Martin Amis novel Night Train.When homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson) is called to investigate the murder of a leading astrophysicist and black hole expert, she is confronted by a mystery that begins to affect her in ways she has never expected. As the investigation deepens, a darker world is slowly revealed and she must use all her skills and experience to piece together fragments of a wider conspiracy that lies behind the murder - and a mystery behind the universe itself.A cosmic neo-noir like no other, this is a super intelligent, super stylish (and pretty offbeat) exploration of existence - and human nature itself. Enjoy!Like all of Morleys films, Out of Blue has some ragged edges that may alienate unsympathetic viewers. But having now seen the film three times, I find myself loving it all the more for its imperfections. When a film-maker aims this high, how can one do anything but watch in wonder? ★★★★★ Mark KermodeDirector: Carol MorleyCast: Mamie Gummer, Patricia Clarkson, Jacki WeaverRun time: 110 mins

Tigers

  • 12A

From Oscar-winning director, Danis Tanovic (NO MANS LAND) and Andy Paterson (GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING, THE RAILWAY MAN) comes a true story, 12 years in the making. A Pakistani salesman, employed by Nestle, one of the worlds largest corporations, learns that his promotion of baby formula to doctors is causing babies to die. He risks everything to make it stop, taking on the industry with the help of Cambridge-based Baby Milk Action.A BBC Films/UK Film Council version of the film was halted weeks before production; with defamation laws operating as guilty until proven innocent the huge potential costs of defending a true story in court meant that a transnational company could prevent a true story being told simply by virtue of its deep pockets. A few years later Indian producers Prashita Chaudhary and Guneet Monga finally made the film possible.With a breakthrough performance from Bollywood favourite Emraan Hashmi and a cast including Danny Huston, Geetanjali Thapa, Khalid Abdalla, Maryam dAbo and Satyadeep Misra, TIGERS was shot in the Indian Punjab and London. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and in Official Competition at San Sebastian.Baby Milk Action IBFAN UKTigers… A Roaring Success, The Express Tribune.Writer-Director Danis Tanovic explores the power of multinationals, the media and ethics in a finely crafted true-life story., The Hollywood Reporter.Director: Danis TanovicCast: Sam Reid, Emraan Hashmi, Adil Hussain, Khalid Abdalla, Maryam dAbo, Heino Ferch, Geetanjali Thapa, Danny HustonRun time: 94 mins

The Yukon Assignment

  • PG

British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall, depend on each other for survival, as they canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada. The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earths last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together, irrespective of age.Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children is fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.The film leaves the audience wanting to call their loved ones, dream big, and dare to believe.The feature-length documentary is a gentle, unpretentious love-letter to untamed nature and its ability to bring two people together. ★★★ The Arts DeskThe film is suitable for families and specifically made to inspire curious adventurers of all ages!Director: Chris LucasStarring Chris Lucas, Niall LucasRun time: 86 minsDistributed in the UK by Jonny Tull Film Distributor working with Tourism Yukon for this tour, bringing the beauty of the Yukon and spirit of adventure to a cinema near you!
