Kedi (2016 Turkey) Cert. U – subtitled

Director: Ceyda Torun
Stars: Cats, Istanbul

While Istanbul is developing rapidly, kedi (cats) – both domestic and wild – still run freely through the old quarters.

 

 

We meet kedi as different as fearsome neighbourhood queen Psikopat and mild-mannered deli mascot Duman, and the artists, fishermen and market traders who live with them and care for them on the streets.

 

 

This charming, ingeniously filmed documentary is a hymn to both the bond between humans and animals, and the rhythms of life in this ancient and magical city.

 

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.

This Month we present:

My cousin rachel (2017, UK/USA), Cert. 12A

Director: Roger Michell         
Stars: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen 

A fine British cast lead this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1951 tale of a young man plotting revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin. 

Du Maurier’s books were already popular with Hollywood (‘Rebecca’, ‘Jamaica Inn’, ‘Frenchman’s Creek’) and ‘My Cousin Rachel’ was moved to the big screen almost as soon as it was published, in 1952, with Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton in the lead roles.

Phillip (Claflin) has been orphaned at an early age, with his older cousin Ambrose becoming his guardian.  He suspects Ambrose’s wife Rachel (eponymously played by Rachel Weisz) of poisoning Ambrose and when the widow turns up at the Cornish family home he is deeply suspicious.

 

 

 

 

However, he quickly falls under her spell.  But if his suspicions were right, does the same fate await him?

 

 

 

As well as a more modern sensibility from director and screenwriter Michell (Notting Hill, Enduring Love, Le Weekend), this gripping new production also features gorgeous Devon and Florence locations.

Plus BRIT School Showcase film London.wav (2016, 3 mins), directed by Samuel Marino.  This montage of London images, precisely synchronised to music, launches a new partnership involving the School’s Film & Media Production department.
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.
 

 

Here is a link to (one of the many) recent reviews in the The Guardian, which includes a link to the trailer.  We are also linking to an earlier article in The Telegraph highlighting the beneficial side effect of having your property used as a film location.
