The Great White Silence with an original live soundtrack from Non-Blank

The Great White Silence with an original live soundtrack from Non-Blank

The Great White Silence is a 1924 English documentary about the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910–1913, portraying expedition leader Robert Falcon Scott, his men and his ship, the Terra Nova, as they leave Lyttelton, New Zealand, to sail into the Southern Ocean and its ice floes. The principal filmmaker was Herbert Ponting, the first known photographer to take a cinematograph to the Antarctic continent. He follows the men as they set up tents, practice skiing, and prepare to probe southward toward the Pole. Scott did not choose Ponting to accompany him on his tragic onward journey and he remained on base, survived with his film sequences and eventually returned to England. Non-Blank are Oliver Cherer, Jack Hayter, Riz Maslen and Darren Morris. They return to Kino-Teatr after their success with a live soundtrack to The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari. They perform semi-improvised suites of music based on recordings, schemes and strategies made and devised in and around various locations, collections and libraries of sounds, using old tape machines, organic, analogue and digital instruments and voices.

  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden

  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
