Kedi (2016 Turkey) Cert. U – subtitled

Additional screening
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.

For October we are showing Cycliste De Reve (4 mins), directed by Caleb Pithers-Gregory. This story of a boy’s efforts to gain a new bicycle recently won the School’s Best Year 12 Short Film award. 
 
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.

The review includes a link to the ‘official US’  Trailer, while ‘trailer 1’ can be seen below

Latest News – 08 October 2017

Tuesday’s audience for The Big Sick was the first to see the results of the recent project work – see update below. I myself saw Dunkirk the following afternoon, and the improved picture only added to the total sense of immersion that the film produced. Patrons were enthusiastically praising the film well after the final credits. There is a further chance to see Dunkirk on Wednesday 18 at 19:30.Thursday saw two screenings of our first Black History Month title, Daughters of the Dust.

This week’s offerings start off on Tuesday with our regular Babes in Arms screening of the delightful cat documentary Kedi. This film has proved very popular, with a sold out performance last month, so there is also another chance to see it next Saturday. On Tuesday evening, we have our second Black History Month feature, Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit, set during the race riots of 1967, and featuring standout performances for British actors John Boyega and Will Poulter. On Thursday we have two showings of Final Portrait, Stanley Tucci’s affectionate study of the last days of the great artist Alberto Giacometti, subject of a recent Tate Modern exhibition.

Latest News 24 September 2017

Last week was a busy one, with screenings on Tuesday and Wednesday, plus our AGM on Thursday. Kedi attracted an audience of cat lovers and people who had visited Istanbul, and obviously enjoyed the sold-out screening. I’m not in either group, but still found it a very pleasing viewing experience. If you missed it, there are two further chances to see it again on Saturday 14 October at 14.30, or in our Babes in Arms screening on Tuesday 10 October at 11.00. Our Dunkirk screenings on Wednesday were both sold out, but there are other opportunities to see this film, which has been a great critical and commercial success, on Wednesday 4 October at 14.30 (subtitled for those with hearing loss) and Wednesday 18 October at 19.30. Read more about our AGM etc.

We’d like to welcome you to our AGM to be held in the Braithwaite Hall, Croydon Clocktower on Thursday 21 September at 19:30. The meeting will be followed by a screening in the cinema of a new 28 minute documentary about the Fairfield Halls entitled The Fairfield Collection. Refreshments will be available. Do join us if you can – your comments and views are always important to us and this is an ideal opportunity for you to let us know what you think.

Looking back to last week, My Cousin Rachel was enjoyed by the Babes in Arms audience on Tuesday morning. Sophia Coppola’s re-make of US Civil War drama The Beguiled mostly compared favourably with Don Siegel’s 1971 version which starred Clint Eastwood. “Great” and “very enjoyable” were just a couple of the comments from younger film-goers, but others perhaps preferred the original…

The delightful Kedi (Cats) on Tuesday is fully booked, but we’re pleased to say there’s another showing on Saturday 14 October at 14:30. Meanwhile, it’s our next Babes in Arms screening on 10 October at the usual time of 11:00. Read more…….
