Abre Los Ojos'open Your Eyes'(1997) + Guest Speaker Dr Silvia Camporesi - Sci-Fi Sundays

Welcome to Sci-Fi Sundays at Deptford Cinema. Join us for an afternoon movie on the last Sunday of the month. With quarterly themes, our 2018/2019 programme delves into wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, Earthly welcomes, post-Earths, new flesh and everything in between when it comes to our favourite Science Fiction cinema.Alongside each screening weve organised a little something extra; quizzes, short-films, panel discussions and much more.Our final theme for our 2018/2019 programme looks inward at the BODY and its evolution and manipulation at the hands of humankind.–-Cesar is a wealthy, entitled pretty-boy who inspires envy in those around him. Between cruising in his open-top sports car and holding meetings with the managers of his ample financial trust, he spends his time throwing parties in his high-ceilinged loft apartment and bedding a never-ending string of beautiful women.Superficial and self-interested, Cesar is presented as a victor in the lottery of life. He treats his girlfriends with a cool disinterest and is indifferent to the jealousy of his closest friend, Pelayo, ignoring entirely his feelings when he decides on a whim to pursue the woman his friend is in love with. However, Cesars life is abruptly transformed when he is involved in a serious accident and he begins to experience life from a very different vantage point. His life goes on to take a series of strange turns, eventually prompting him to question his friends, his environment and ultimately his own identity.Alejandro Amenabars 1997 film is multi-layered and excitingly original; a thriller first and foremost, the story follows a series of twists and turns as Cesars strange fate unfolds. Whilst it is clear from early on in the film that things are not entirely as they seem, the line between appearance and reality is not fully clarified until the final moments of the film.Cesars story is also a meditation on despair, isolation and identity, articulating the most cynical of perspectives on the effects of beauty on a persons destiny. Open Your Eyes nevertheless embodies a hopeful optimism in Cesars desire for the truth, and, finally, in its hopeful message about the value of human life. The film also works as a wistful romantic drama illustrating the poignancy and peril of obsession, and of lost love.–-DR SILVIA CAMPORESI - Guest SpeakerDirector of Bioethics and Society Masters programme at Kings College LondonSilvia Camporesi is a bioethicist who researches the ethical and social issues raised by frontier biomedical technologies.

Badlands (1973) - Terrence Malick Season

Terrence Malick based his peerlessly poetic debut on the real-life story of Charles Starkweather, a teenage James Dean wannabe who fled across the midwest on a killing spree, his 14-year-old girlfriend in tow. But the film couldnt be further from a pulpy true-crime tale, or a hip New Wave homage like Bonnie and Clyde. Its a true original: eloquent about the intersection of crime, romanticism and myth-making in America, and highly innovative in its use of colour, editing and voice-over. Martin Sheen, who was cast as the Starkweather surrogate, Kit, believed Badlands was the best script he had ever read. Still is, he says. It was mesmerising. It disarmed you. It was a period piece, and yet of all time. It was extremely American, it caught the spirit of the people, of the culture, in a way that was immediately identifiable. Sissy Spacek played Holly, the baton-twirling schoolgirl who elopes with Kit after he kills her father (Warren Oates). - The GuardianInspired by real-life killers Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate, this tale of crime and love begins in a dead-end town. Teenage girl Holly (Sissy Spacek) angers her father (Warren Oates) when she begins dating an older and rebellious boy (Martin Sheen). After a conflict between Holly and her father erupts in murder, the young lovers are forced to flee. In the ensuing crime spree, they journey through the Midwest to the Badlands of Montana, eluding authorities along the way.Dir: Terrence Malick| Starring: Sissy Spacek, Martin Sheen, Warren Oates | Rating: 18 | Running Time: 95 minsDoors Open 1.30pmScreening Start 2.00pm

The Birds - Deptford Cinema Film & Book Club

DC Film and Book Club is back in October with a pre-Halloween special, pairing Hitchcocks classic avian horror-thriller The Birds with its lesser-known source material, Daphne Du Mauriers short story written in 1951.Although the Cornish author has often been de-valued as a writer of romance, popular literature or melodrama, the twisted plot lines, sexual intrigue and suspenseful atmosphere that characterise her fiction have proved endlessly inspiring for filmmakers. With 12 du Maurier film adaptations and more than 40 television dramatisations, notable examples include Nicholas Roegs Dont Look Now(1973) and more recently, Roger Michells My Cousin Rachel (2017). As film critic Iris Versey explains, Her novels The Birds and Rebecca provided the perfect blend of moral complexity and Gothic drama.In Hitchcocks adaptation, he re-locates The Birds from rural Cornwall to a Californian resort, playing up the on-screen violence but redressing the pessimism and ambiguity of du Mauriers original ending. Re-visiting this horror in the wake of #MeToo and the controversy surrounding the directors abusive treatment of lead actress Tippi Hedren (exposed in her 2016 autobiography), perhaps the films famous climax carries new layers of meaning in relation to its gender politics.Join us to discuss these themes and more after the screening.

Days Of Heaven (1978) - Terrence Malick Season

Terrence Malick's 1978 movie Days of Heaven was never a huge hit, but it was such a departure and so deliberate an attempt to have the audience stirred by beauty that it felt calming and inspiring. Without shame or caution it was trying to address the pre-modern era of American history, the natural conflict between landowners and newcomers. But it was just as interested in the vanity of men and women trying to tame and organise the wild parts of the country. Beyond that, was this perhaps the most beautiful picture ever made? Second films are famously hard, but with Days of Heaven, Malick was announcing that he would do things his way. - The GuardianA screen poem about life in America at the turn of the century. A story of love and murder told through the voice of a child and expressive images of nature in 1916. A steelworker flees Chicago after a fight with his boss; he takes his little sister and girlfriend with him.Dir: Terrence Malick| Starring: Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepard, Linda Manz | Rating: 18 | Running Time: 95 minsDoors Open 4.30pmScreening Start 5.00pm

Based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommys cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend–and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what youre doing

The Films Of Louise Marie Cooke

Deptford Cinema, in association with Freyja Films, presents The Films of Louise Marie Cooke: A Retrospective (So Far). This micro-season on the films of Louise (so far) aims to characterise her trajectory from an emerging Writer/Director to the established and unique voice that she is in independent cinema today. Louise is currently developing her debut feature film Isobel based on Film London backed short Breathe and a supernatural queer web-series.At surface level, one might compare Cookes career trajectory to that of French filmmaker Lea Mysius(AVA, Thunderbirds, The Yellow Island), whom Deptford Cinema is currently planning a season of. Alternatively, her work could be compared to the playful rebelliousness of early Francois Ozon (See the Sea, Under the Sand) or the confrontational sexual politics of Catheine Breillat (A Real Young Girl, Virgin/Junior Size 36). However, Louise has a unique approach for tying in these themes of pre and post-sexual awakening and naturalistic exploration of the world and ones body within it, with verve and authenticity unlike anything of recent times. Her cinematic approach is un-romanticised, and unwavering - making this writer-director a martyr of the modern female gaze.ABOUT THE FILMMAKERLouise is writer director making films with complex female characters at the centre of the narrative. Her work is influenced by themes of sexual awakening and identity. Her short films have screened multiple times at BAFTA qualifying festivals including London Short Film Festival (First Bite, Siren, Breathe), Underwire Festival (First Bite, Siren, Pillow Talk), Iris Prize (Siren, Pillow Talk) and Frameline: San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival (Siren).Following a master degree at the Northern Media School Louise made her non-student directorial debut with the Film London backed coming of age film First Bite (2011) which has so far been watched over 1.7 million times on YouTube. This was followed up by Siren (2014), a short film focusing on the sexual awakening of a woman in her early twenties. Alice: A Social Media Journey (2015) was her first non-fiction film, commissioned by the joint university research project ReelLives. In 2017 she crowdfunded to make Pillow Talk which was selected for over 25 festivals and was funded a second time by Film London, to make Breathe. Made as part of the London Calling 2017 slate, Breathe was released in festivals at the start of 2018. Louise directed her seventh short film Confessional in late 2018. She is currently developing her debut feature film Isobel based on Film London backed short Breathe and a supernatural queer web-series.EXHIBITIONAn exhibition, featuring written photographic work and development material, provided by Louise Marie Cooke and Freyja Films will be on display during in the cinemas gallery - The Corridor, across the weekend.PROGRAMME - (TITLE | Running Time in Minutes) -Saturday 21st September Sunday 22nd September 2019: 2pm - 4pm14:00 - TRACKS | 9 - Noah and Holly come together to deal with the loss of their childhood friend; haunted by the past, Noah struggles to move on.14:10 - FIRST BITE | 11 - Eve is a girl full of emotions trapped by the world around her, longing to break free.

Frankenstein (1931) + Short The Art Of Sci-Fi Book Covers - Sci-Fi Sundays

Welcome to Sci-Fi Sundays at Deptford Cinema. Join us for an afternoon movie on the last Sunday of the month. With quarterly themes, our 2018/2019 programme delves into wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, Earthly welcomes, post-Earths, new flesh and everything in between when it comes to our favourite Science Fiction cinema.Alongside each screening weve organised a little something extra; quizzes, short-films, panel discussions and much more.Our final theme for our 2018/2019 programme looks inward at the BODY and its evolution and manipulation at the hands of humankind.–-The story of Dr Frankenstein, a scientist who cobbles together and animates a monster from parts of dead bodies taken from graves, is one of the best known in fiction. Frankenstein is initially euphoric in successfully creating life, but in spite of his hopes and ambitions for the creature, it is misunderstood and maligned. The monster inspires fear and loathing in those it encounters, as the scientist struggles to contain his creation. Universal Studios 1931 film remains the classic cinematic version of Mary Shelleys novel, easily surpassing remakes of the film in 1973, 1992 and 2015. The image of Boris Karloff (a relatively normal looking person in real life), transformed for the film into an incarnation of the monster that conveys both its power and vulnerability, now occupies genuinely iconic status in horror, science fiction and cinema more broadly.Mary Shelleys novel was 200 years old in 2018 and it continues to serve as a cautionary tale about the extent to which we should intervene in nature, articulating deeply held anxieties about the pace and power of science, and intuitions about the sacred, God-given character of life. Many of these themes resonate today, and Frankensteinis still frequently cited in public conversations about biotechnology, genetic engineering and artificial intelligence.

The Innocents (1961) - Built Upon Bodies Season

In this chilling psychological horror, Deborah Kerr plays Miss Giddens, the new governess to two orphans residing on their uncles sprawling country estate. While at first she is delighted by the precocious and charming children, she soon comes to suspect that something about the household is awry. She gradually uncovers sinister and sensual secrets hiding behind the Victorian decorum, that have possessed not only the children but seemingly the house itself. A gothic tale of sexual repression, The Innocents is as haunting as it is elegant, with carefully composed visuals and an eerily lingering soundtrack.Director: Jack Clayton | Starring: Deborah Kerr, Peter Wyngarde, Megs Jenkins |Running Time: 99 minsPart of 'Built Upon Bodies', a season showcasing a selection of films suggesting a relationship between the human body, the built environment and its manifestation in cinema. Taking as a starting point the infamous scene in Jean-Luc Godards Contempt of Brigitte Bardot sunbathing on the roof terrace of the Villa Malaparte in Capri, the season draws attention to how filmmakers across different genres have staged interactions between architecture and gendered bodies to iconic and haunting effect.

Inventing Tomorrow (2018)

INVENTING TOMORROWfollows young scientists from Indonesia, Hawaii, India and Mexico as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today - right in their own backyards. Each student is preparing original scientific research that he or she will defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, we immerse the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most.Considered the Olympics of high school science fairs, ISEF is the largest gathering of high school scientists in the world, attracting approximately 1,800 finalists from over 75 countries, regions and territories. All the finalists want to do a good job, but the heart of the story isnt about whether they go home with an award. As they take water samples from contaminated lakes, dig up the dirt in public parks, board illegal pirate mining ships, and test their experiments in a lab, we see each student display a tenacious curiosity, and a determination to build a better future. Motivated by the desire to protect their homes, these young people are asking questions about the issues they observe in their communities, and proposing innovative solutions to fix them.

Rear Window (1954) - Built Upon Bodies Season

Due to a broken leg, the newspaper photographer Jeff (James Stewart), used to travelling the world in search of adventure, is bound to the confines of his small apartment. Lucky for him, his rear window provides ample views into his neighbours apartments, and he begins to obsessively observe the scenes that unfold on the other side of the courtyard. Even his stunning, too perfect girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly) is unable to distract him. But when the pair witness a series of events pointing to a brutal crime, their relationship is re-ignited as they attempt to solve a mystery they themselves become entangled with. Set entirely inside of Jeffs apartment, Rear Window is an expression of the voyeuristic power of the male gaze – and has been called a metaphor for cinema itself.Director: Alfred Hitchcock | Starring: James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter, Raymond Burr |Running Time: 112 minsPart of Built Upon Bodies, a season showcasing a selection of films suggesting a relationship between the human body, the built environment and its manifestation in cinema.

Too Late To Die Young (Tarde Para Morir Joven)

Set in Chile in the summer of 1990, Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama, partly inspired by the directors own experiences growing up in the alternative ecological community of Pealoln. As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochets dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune is the foothills of the Andes attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships.

The Tree Of Life: Extended Edition (2011) - Terrence Malick Season

Four decades into an already legendary career, Terrence Malick realized his most rapturous vision to date, tracing a story of childhood, wonder, and grief to the outer limits of time and space. Reaching back to the dawn of creation, Malick sets a story of boyhood memories on a universal scale, charting the coming of age of an awestruck child (newcomer Hunter McCracken) in Texas in the 1950s, as he learns to navigate the extremes of nature and grace represented by his bitter, often tyrannical father (Brad Pitt) and his ethereal, nurturing mother (Jessica Chastain, in her breakout role). Achieved with the aid of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and production designer Jack Fisk, the Palme dOr-winning The Tree of Life marks the intimately personal, cosmically ambitious culmination of Malicks singular approach to filmmaking.In this highly philosophical film by acclaimed director Terrence Malick, young Jack (Hunter McCracken) is one of three brothers growing up as part of the OBrien family in small-town Texas. Jack has a contentious relationship with his father (Brad Pitt), but gets along well with his beautiful mother (Jessica Chastain). As an adult, Jack (Sean Penn) struggles with his past and tries to make sense of his childhood, while also grappling with bigger existential issues.Dir: Terrence Malick| Starring: Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, Sean Penn | Rating: 12 | Running Time: 188 mins (2019 Criterion Collection Extended Edition)Doors Open 6.30pmScreening Start 7.00pm

Videodrome (1983) - Sci-Fi Sundays

Welcome to Sci-Fi Sundays at Deptford Cinema. Join us for an afternoon movie on the last Sunday of the month. With quarterly themes, our 2018/2019 programme delves into wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, Earthly welcomes, post-Earths, new flesh and everything in between when it comes to our favourite Science Fiction cinema.Alongside each screening weve organised a little something extra; quizzes, short-films, panel discussions and much more.Our final theme for our 2018/2019 programme looks inward at the BODY and its evolution and manipulation at the hands of humankind.–-LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH!Max Renn (James Woods, never better) is the controller of a small Cable TV channel that specialises in softcore porn and hardcore violence. Renn is constantly on the lookout for new content ripped from the illegal airwaves to deliver to his insatiable audience.His tech pirate, Harlan, picks up glimpses of a channel, seemingly from South America, that seems perfect: Videodrome. Its a show of show of shocking and meaningless violence and Renn is determined to have it. But as he starts to investigate where the show comes from he encounters the demented media mogul Brian Convex who wants to use television to rid America of the weak. Not only does Max begin to suspect the violence and murder on Videodrome is real but that there is something more terrifying going on beneath the surface. Because hidden within the Videodrome broadcast is another signal. A signal that seems to do strange things to the human bodyCronenberg was inspired to make this film by contemporary fears that violent video content was damaging viewers. Videodromeimagines a world in which watching extreme content does indeed twist and warp its viewers - but in typical Cronenbergian body-horror fashion, the effects are not just mental, but very physical.Working with legendary special make-up effects artist Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London) Cronenberg creates some of the most iconic and disturbing images in sci-fi horror. Though inspired by the analog aesthetic of the VHS era, the fears and anxieties explored in Videodrome are just as relevant in todays world.
