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.

The Breath

The Breath is Stuart McCallum (ex-guitarist of The Cinematic Orchestra), Irish singer Rioghnach Connolly and McCallum's fellow Cinematic alumnus pianist John Ellis, along with drummer Elliot Bennett.

Born out of Manchester's fertile music scene they mix Irish folk influences with mesmerising guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks. Connolly's soulful vocals are interwoven into the electronic fabric of McCallum's distinctive sound-world. In turns hypnotic, lush, powerfully raw and raucously punchy, their songs entrance, uplift and break your heart as The Breath conjure a kaleidoscope of sound that perfectly frames Connolly's raw songs and soul cleansing vocals.

Drawing on the influences of traditional Irish folk song, Connolly's original lyrics pour forth from her own life in a torrent of meaning. She sings songs of birth and death, woman's rights, first love, the call of motherhood, the death of men at sea and post-colonial wrongs. All delivered with compelling emotional honesty and a raw urgency as McCallum, Ellis and Bennett delve deeply into the spaces between rock, ambient, folk and jazz to deliver a powerfully hypnotic accompaniment that moves from chilled soundscapes to rocking anthems.

Recorded in Manchester and at Real World Studios and mixed by sound guru Tchad Blake, The Breath's debut album Carry Your Kin was released on Peter Gabriel's Real World Records in April 2016.

Cassils: Human Measure

Cassils: Human Measure

Internationally regarded for their work, Cassils makes their own body the material and protagonist of their work. Working in live performance, sculpture, photography, sound design and film, Cassils contemplates the history(s) of LGBTQI+ violence, representation, struggle and power.

Curated by Bren O’Callaghan, Cassils’ Human Measure is a 10-year survey at a critical moment for transgender advocacy. The works, which take the form of an exhibition and accompanying one day performance, will grapple with the question: “What does it mean to engage in the politics of representation in a moment of heightened violence?”.

The performance is Cassils' first commission for stage, a collaboration with renowned choreographer Jasmine Albuquerque, and is inspired by Yves Klein's Anthropometries paintings to demonstrate movements grounded in oppression and resilience, an artist whose physical practice deeply inspires their work.

A City Seen: Leave it on the Floor

With Intro and post-show discussion with Rainbow Noir. As part of our Black History Month programme, we invited Rainbow Noir to select this A City Seen screening. And Rainbow Noir chose high flying and low down, ‘Leave it on the Floor’ a one of a kind celebration – a gay African-American musical about finding your true family.

In the spirit of ‘Paris Is Burning’, Sheldon Larry’s audacious, raunchy and big-hearted musical – with songs by Beyonce’s music director Kim Burse and choreography by Beyonce’s dance master Frank Gatson Jr. – takes us into the fabulously funky world of voguing. Here the setting is contemporary downtown L.A. Our hunky, homeless hero Brad, discarded by his homophobic mother, falls in with the members of the ‘House of Eminence’, a troupe of wild and unforgiving dancers and artists ruled by the stern diva Queef Latina, who keeps a careful, loving watch over her makeshift family of runaways and throwaways. When two of her crew fall for Brad, the Queef is royally unamused, and with a dance-off showdown fast approaching, things are going to get seriously heated!

Screening with have an introduction and post-show discussion with Rainbow Noir. This event is part of an ongoing partnership between HOME and Rainbow Noir. A City Seen is HOME’s quarterly film programme exploring the creativity of our city’s most essential charities, community groups and voluntary organisations.

Great Freedom (15)

(Grosse Freiheit) Dir Sebastian Meise/AT DE 2021/117 mins/German wEng ST Franz Rogowski, Georg Friedrich, Anton von Lucke

Winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes, Sebastian Meise’s searing prison drama is a captivating chronicle of queer history.

In post-war Germany, Hans (a remarkable performance from Franz Rogowski) finds himself repeatedly incarcerated in high-security prison. With Paragraph 175 outlawing the ‘unnatural sex act committed between persons of male sex’, Hans is continually forced to pay a heavy price for his desire to live an authentic life. As the decades roll by, Hans finds a succession of lovers during his stints behind bars, but one constant emerges in his fractured existence – his friendship with cell mate Viktor.

Serving a life sentence for murder, Viktor’s initial hostility and revulsion towards Hans slowly begins to thaw, and over time the unlikely pair develop an intense and primal bond. Set across three different timelines, Sebastian Meise’s arresting drama offers a powerful reflection on historical injustice and the persecution of homosexuals, as seen through the eyes of one man. It is a hard-hitting, often uncompromising piece of work, yet beneath its tough exterior lies a deeply unsentimental, disarmingly tender love story that is almost impossible to forget.

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

2 hours (including interval)

'The Darkening' is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band’s music blazes fiercely, invoking the dark, powerful, sounds of Ancient Northumbria and broadcasting them to the modern world.

Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten quintessentially Northumbrian countryside along Hadrian’s Wall; yet almost 2000 years ago, that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs.

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling new material and binding all together with contemporary resonance and attitude.

The Last Duel (18)

Dir Ridley Scott/GB US 2021/153mins Jodie Comer, Matt Damon, Adam Driver

Based on Eric Jager's book and scripted by Nicole Holofocener, Ridley Scott’s latest film brings the turbulent Middle Ages to life in striking detail. When etiquette, social aspirations and justice were driven by the codes of chivalry, the consequences for defying the institutions of the time - the Church, the nobility at court and a teenage king - could be severe. For a woman navigating these violent times, one who had no legal standing without the support of her husband, the stakes were even higher.

Memoria (15)

Dir Apichatpong Weerasethakul/CO TH FR DE MX CN 2021/136 mins/Spanish and English with partial EngST Tilda Swinton, Elkin Díaz, Jeanne Balibar

Shot and set in Colombia, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s meditative rumination on memory and the human condition is anchored by Tilda Swinton’s enigmatic, otherworldly presence.

Visiting her sister in Bogota, Jessica (Tilda Swinton) is woken up by a loud bang, audible only to her. Restless and disoriented, she roams the city in search of an explanation for the mysterious sound, becoming immersed in the aural richness around her – whispers in a hospital room, sound effects playing in an editing studio, indiscreet noises from a city square. Despite being present throughout, Jessica’s motives remain opaque and her encounters enigmatic. Shooting a feature outside Thailand for the first time, Weerasethakul continues to probe the unknowable. Drawing on the familiar themes of sleep, memory, past lives, verdant landscapes and dreams, Memoria retains its own enthralling logic as the filmmaker employs his status as an outsider in Colombia to further amplify the power of the impenetrable. The film’s commitment to sound allows us to follow Jessica to the threshold of personal and collective memory and provides a rare cinematic experience that will reverberate for a long time to come.

Alec Utgoff, Maja Ostaszewska, Agata Kulesza

When a mysterious stranger arrives in a gated community on the outskirts of a large Polish city, he is welcomed by the wealthy residents who embrace his talents as a masseur. Though his hands provide healing, his eyes seem to penetrate their very souls, lifting a disquiet in each of their lives. Zhenia (Utgoff) possesses a magical gift and to the residents his Russian accent also sounds like a song from the past, a peaceful melody from their childhood when the world was a safer place. And though his hypnotic techniques bring calm, his background remains a mystery, leaving the residents to wonder what other secrets he holds. Featuring a hypnotic lead performance from Utgoff, this striking new film from Małgorzata Szumowska and her longtime collaborator Michał Englert is wondrous, compelling and uplifting.

No Place Like Home (18)

Dir Perry Henzell/JM US 2006/90 mins Susan O'Meara, Carl Bradshaw, Countryman

Almost fifty years after Henzell’s The Harder They Come put Jamaica on the cinematic map, the late director’s long-lost second feature which went into production in 1973, at last achieves a theatrical release. Reconstructed and restored, this definitive version of the film is both a sun-kissed love letter to Jamaica and a thoughtful examination of it. This naturalistic and largely improvised work reveals Perry Henzell’s affinity with the cinema of John Cassavetes, Robert Altman and Dennis Hopper. A road movie that celebrates Jamaica’s natural beauty whilst also questioning the tourist economy, it offered an early role for Grace Jones and features a cracking soundtrack.

The Outsiders: The Complete Novel (PG)

Dir Francis Ford Coppola/US FR 1983/111 mins C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio

The story of young men growing up facing hard times where they have little going for them. Two opposing groups, the Greasers and the Socs, continually fight against each other and their "turf".

“The Outsiders: The Complete Novel came about after meeting students over the years who repeatedly asked me why certain scenes from S.E. Hinton’s wonderful book were missing from the theatrical version. These questions reminded about my inspiration for the film - in 1980, a contingent of 12 to 14-year-old students wrote and asked me to make it. I listened to those young fans back then, and I continue to listen to young people now and believe in their opinions, so this complete film version of the novel is for them.” Francis Ford Coppola

Sam Carter

Sam Carter

Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2020 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Sam Carter has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, and has been described as "the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation". Sam's last solo album, How The City Sings, was characterised by The Guardian as a "bittersweet electric-folk concept album" in their glowing 4-star review. His new album, Home Waters, is a return to his softer side, pairing his virtuosic guitar playing with an exquisite string quartet backing to explore the search for a sense of belonging in a transient, constantly changing world.

Spiers & Boden "The Comeback Tour" Manchester Folk Festival

Spiers & Boden "The Comeback Tour" Manchester Folk Festival

By the time John Spiers & Jon Boden had hung up their highly regarded hats as the Spiers & Boden duo in 2014 they had earned a place in the hearts of the folk audience that few could rival. Described by The Guardian as 'the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene', Spiers & Boden first rocketed onto the music scene in 2001, quickly winning a clutch of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and went on to become one of the best loved duos on the English folk scene and beyond. John and Jon were also founding members of the pioneering and hugely successful folk big band Bellowhead, whose stellar career increasingly came to dominate their time. But now, after exploring solo projects, the duo is back with a brand new 13 track album 'Fallow Ground".

The Velvet Underground (15)

Dir Todd Haynes/US 2021/121 mins

The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock ’n’ roll’s most revered bands. This fascinating documentary from Todd Haynes shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture. The film features in-depth interviews with key players, combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band's creative ethos: “how to be elegant and how to be brutal.”
