2 Graves

Posted in: Programme 2013 | Posted on: May 8, 2013

A man avenges the death of his father, and while on the run embarks on a hallucinogenic Odyssey to the dark heart of his soul. Featuring a stunning score from Michael Nyman, and based on Paul Sellar’s acclaimed West End play, 2 Graves is a daring piece of cinema, having Jack (Jonathan Moore) retell his story in a hypnotic rhyming monologue. Bobby Tops’ rise and fall at the 1978 World Professional Darts Championship, subsequent death and his son’s revenge are relayed with mordant humour and tragic irony, all on a crumbling, atmospheric theatre set. Tickets available from the Genesis Cinema website here.

Channeling British classics such as Witchfinder General and The Wicker Man whilst retaining the gender-bending tastes Wheatley displayed in Kill List and Sightseers, the film sees an alchemist capture a group of deserters and set them to the task of finding a mysterious treasure; feasting on huge circle of mushrooms; and becoming the victim of the field’s mysterious energies. A true one-off from one of our most distinctive, and truly British, filmmakers. This screening will be accompanied by contributions from Ben Wheatley, producer ...

A World Not Ours

Posted in: Programme 2013 | Posted on:

London-based Palestinian director, Mahdi Fleifel, returns to the Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon where he spent much of his childhood. This is a personal and nostalgic exploration of a community that has been waiting for generations to be granted the right to return to what they see as their rightful homes in Israel. Exploring the stories of his friends and family, the World Cup proves an outlet for escape. This is a charming and moving take on belonging, borders and family, which won the Peace award at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year. Tickets available from the Rio Cinema website here.
