The popular cine club returns this summer season with a whole host of new films to discuss and debate with fellow film enthusiasts. The cine club started in January with a series of films from the BFI programme ‘The Time is Now!’ Exploring the changing role of women in film over the last century, inspired by Suffragette. This summer’s theme is ‘Survival Against all Odds’ with a selection of films and documentaries looking at stories of incredible human endurance in the most drastic of circumstances, some true, some from a dystopian future.

Stephen FingletonAlongside the screenings, cine club offers the chance to discuss the films with other enthusiasts. This season targets across generations as we have films from contemporary directors such as Danny Boyle but also icons such as Alfred Hitchcock, meaning that there will be lots of talking points to discuss. Our screening of The Survivalist will also feature a post-show talk from the director Stephen Fingleton, where the audience will hear first-hand about the filming experience and learn more about the inspiration behind the story.

The purpose of the cine club is to give people the chance to see films that they may have missed first time around and offers the opportunity to see a collection of stories encompassing similar themes, igniting discussions amongst film-goers and enthusiasts alike. Read below to see what is coming up this season.

In a kill-or-be-killed world where starvation is rife and strangers are always dangerous, The Survivalist lives off the grid, and by his wits. When a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover his forest refuge, his loneliness drives him to overcome his suspicion and strike a bargain with them in return for bed and board. But as desire becomes stronger than necessity, the exchange becomes an uneasy, ongoing arrangement which threatens not only his carefully constructed world but also his life. Featuring a post-show talk from director Stephen Fingleton.

In 1985, two adventurous young mountaineers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, set off to climb the treacherous west face of the Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. They were experienced climbers, and climbed “Alpine-style,” climbing the mountain in “one great push,” without setting up ropes or base camps ahead of time. After dealing with a snowstorm and some dangerous climbing over powder formations, they reached the summit (about 21,000 feet) on the third day. The climb down proved to be far more challenging and perilous.

Lifeboat

Thu 04 Aug; 7.30pmLifeboat (without white strip)
£7 (£6 conc., £4 members)

In this tense Alfred Hitchcock thriller, based on a John Steinbeck novella, American and British civilians who have survived the sinking of their ship by a German submarine struggle to reach land in a crowded lifeboat. When a German officer is rescued from the water, tensions only increase.
