Stars: Anna Castillo, Javier GutiÈrrez, Pep AmbrÚs, Manuel Cucala

This web-page is a work in progress.  More content will be added in the next few days

Bollaín’s road-trip drama, written by her partner Paul Laverty (whose work on I, Daniel Blake was recently appreciated by a number of sell-out audiences at the David Lean), follows Alba (Anna Castillo) in her quixotic search for the 2000-year old olive tree beloved of her grandfather, which his children sold off to pay for a failed restaurant business.

She persuades her friend and a sceptical uncle to drive a truck from Spain to Dusseldorf to try to retrieve the tree from the foyer of a German energy company, gathering an online eco-activist following along the way.

The Olive Tree “has such charm and promotes such good” (The Irish Times).

News Update 07 May 2017

We’ve had another memorable week at the David Lean. In addition to sell out repeat screenings of Viceroy’s House, there was the highly original blend of horror and humour provided by Get Out, which wasn’t quite to everyone’s taste, but most found it very enjoyable. The Salesman offered reflective and absorbing drama, enhanced by the insight it offered into life in Iran. It proved so thought-provoking that discussions continued afterwards at the bus stops opposite the Clocktower!

Volunteer Vacancy:

The two David Lean Cinema volunteer co-ordinators are looking for a third volunteer to share their admin duties, particularly the creation of the monthly schedule of duties for stewards, box office staff and arts bar staff. Read More………….
