Coming Up Next on Saturday 25th November 2017 LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD and POLES APART
Short: Poles Apart (National Film and TV School). Shortlisted for the 2017 Animation BAFTA’s and one of a string of successes that included four winners in four years. A wonderful little story of two bears (one white and one brown) who meet in the arctic. Starving, they are in two minds if each should become the others next meal or, each being lonely, life-long pals. Running time: 11 minutes.
Main Feature: Letter from Baghdad, France/Great Britain/USA 2016 - Directors Zeva Oelbaum, Sabine Krayenbühl
| This fascinating documentary explores Gertrude Bell’s role – much less familiar than TE Lawrences’s – in shaping today’s Middle East. Both explorer and British spy, she learnt Farsi and Arabic and became an archaeologist. Tilda Swinton’s voice reading from Bell’s eloquent letters combines with archive and modern footage to portray this little-known part of history. Running Time 95 minutes plus short film. English and Arabic, with subtitles. View screening notes.
The annual membership is £22 or £25, and £5 for students 16 or over till 31st March 2018. Members pay a reservation charge of £6, or £3 for students, guests pay £10 which covers a pre-screening glass of wine or soft drink and nibbles. Doors open at 7:15pm; the film starts at 8pm.
We look forward to welcoming you soon at one of our screenings which are held in the auditorium at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in central Beaconsfield.
