A Quiet Passion (12A)

A Quiet Passion

A Quiet Passion is Terence Davies' biographical drama detailing the life of Emily Dickinson her loves, her struggles and her magnificent poetry, painting a sympathetic but far from idealistic portrait of one of America's greatest poets.

Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

Dogs Without Names + Q&A (12A)

Dogs Without Names + Q&A
The screening will be followed by Q&A with the director and representatives of organisations featured in the film.

Following the death of her beloved golden retriever, a film maker channels her grief into making a documentary about people who rescue dogs and cats 'without names' - in other words, those with no one to care for them.

Akane Yamada’s moving docu-drama looks at animal adoption centres and shelters around Japan including those struggling to handle the countless lost dogs and cats in the 20-kilometre “red zone” around the Fukushima nuclear reactor. She meets and interviews many involved in such organisations and sees anew the power of our bonds with these animals and our responsibilities should we opt to care for them.

This event is organised in partnership with The Japan Society. We are delighted to welcome director Akane Yamada to the UK for this special screening and are grateful to Small Hope Bay Productions for their support.

Akane Yamada has over 30 years experience as a film and television director. Recent productions include The Happiness of Mucchan (NHK, 2014) which tracks Mucchan, a dog abandoned in the 20 kilometer ‘red zone’ around the Fukushima nuclear reactor, and The woman who sleeps with 1,000 cats (Fuji Television, 2015) featuring Yuri Nakatani, of NPO Minashigo Dogs and Cats Rescue in Hiroshima.

Glyndebourne: La Traviata (TBC)

Glyndebourne: La Traviata

Violetta gives up every hope of happiness in this heart-wrenching love story. With its world-famous arias, La traviata is the perfect introduction to Glyndebourne.

Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind - at least not until now. However, their dreams are threatened by both a merciless society that condemns Violetta’s racy past and an equally merciless disease.

There’s rarely a dry eye in the house when this poignant tale unfolds through Verdi’s robust, tuneful, full-hearted and full-throated score, laced through with melodies as familiar as the story.

Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva portrays the iconic role of Violetta, alongside American tenor Michael Fabiano as Alfredo. The visual beauty of Tom Cairns’s opulent production aptly echoes the irresistible allure of this beloved opera.

‘With a team this thrilling and a production so intelligent, Glyndebourne has a sure-fire hit on its hands.’ - The Observer

The Fits + Panel Discussion (12A)

The Fits + Panel Discussion
Adolescence as choreography: The Fits

A strikingly and often delightfully abstract film, The Fits (2015) explores the life of an 11 year-old girl torn between two worlds. Toni spends most of her free time at the boxing ring where she spars and helps out with her brother - that is until she discovers the adjacent gym where a group of young dancers practice. She consequently becomes torn between the two worlds when suddenly, one by one, strange and unexplained things start happening to the dancers.

Royalty Hightower is mesmerising as young Toni, silently observing the different worlds she has discovered. Anna Rose Holmer’s debut film takes on an appropriately dream-like quality as Toni is gradually drawn closer to the dance troupe, the Lionesses.

The main aim of this programme will be to explore the concept of adolescence, with a particular focus on girlhood as choreography. That is to say how girls experience, express and move through the landscape of society – gender stereotypes, class and race divides, peer pressure etc. - as they also experience both physical and psychological shifts in themselves.

The way in which the film portrays these themes as choreography will be the main focus of conversation between Tara Judah, Kelli Weston and Elinor Cleghorn in a discussion after the main feature.

Tara Judah: Tara is a freelance broadcaster and writer. She is a member of the WFCC (Womens Film Critics’ Circle) and is an “advocate for all manner of cinema-going, the film print medium and repertory programming.”
Kelli Weston: Kelli has worked as a researcher for the BFI (British Film Institute) and frequently writes for Sight & Sound magazine.
Elinor Cleghorn PhD: As part of her PhD study, Elinor programmed and organised, Maya Deren: 50 Years On at the BFI (British Film Institute). She specialises in early film and cinema spectatorship; the viewing body and proto-cinema as well as dance and choreographic movement on film.
