Easter Parade (U) - Dementia Friendly Film Screening

Starring: Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Peter Lawford, Ann Miller

In this lavish musical, Broadway star Don Hewes’ (Fred Astaire) dancing partner (Ann Miller) goes solo, and Don declares that he can make a hit performer out of the next dancer he sees. This turns out to be the inexperienced Hannah (Judy Garland), who bristles as Don tries to make her into his old partner. But as he realizes that he is falling in love with Hannah, Don knows that he must let her grow into her own kind of dancer if he wants her to reach her full potential.
Featuring beautiful song and dance routines and music by Irving Berlin, including the title track Easter Parade, Steppin’ Out With My Baby and A Couple of Swells.

Happy End (15)

RIALTO FILM SCREENING

In French with English subtitles

Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz and Toby Jones
Director: Michael Haneke

Master auteur Michael Haneke (Amour, The White Ribbon, Hidden) returns with a biting satire on bourgeois family values set in the shadow of the European refugee crisis.

It’s piercing dark comedy on the blind preoccupations of middle-class angst. When her mother falls ill under mysterious circumstances, young Eve (Fantine Harduin) is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais.

The Laurent family – wealthy, neurotic and self-obsessed – own a lucrative construction company and live in a sprawling mansion house, waited on by servants. But trouble is brewing, as a series of intergenerational back-stabbings threaten to tear the family apart.

Meanwhile, distracted by infidelities and betrayals, they fail to notice that their new arrival has a sinister secret of her own.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Happy End bears all the hallmarks of Haneke’s uniquely stark and unsympathetic style. Pairing pitch-black humour with chillingly precise direction, it’s proof – if we ever needed it – that he remains one of modern cinema’s true visionaries.

‘Happy End is a satirical nightmare of haute-bourgeois European prosperity: as stark, brilliant and unforgiving as a halogen light…It is also as gripping as a satanically inspired soap opera, a dynasty of lost souls.’ THE GUARDIAN

DO NOT BEND: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC LIFE OF BILL JAY

Not suitable for Under 15s

Film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay, produced and directed by Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.

We are pleased to present a special one night only film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay to compliment Oriel Colwyn’s new exhibition opening of Bill’s photographers portraits.

Magazine editor, writer, lecturer, photographer, evangelist, mercurial force; Bill Jay was all of these and more.

Bill Jay ignited the fire beneath British photography in 1968 with his magazine Creative Camera and fanned its flames via Album magazine, the ICA, the RPS, and camera clubs and polytechnics across the land before decamping to the University of New Mexico and on to Arizona State University.

His lectures and teaching created a generation of American photographers, teachers, curators and publishers. He wrote twenty books and over four hundred articles, living a life filled with controversy and passion. Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay documents his life through archive images, audio and photographs alongside interviews with his friends, colleagues and family including Martin Parr, David Hurn, Homer Sykes, Ralph Gibson, Paul Hill, Brian Griffin, Daniel Meadows, Alex Webb, John Benton-Harris, Sue Davis, and Mary V. Swanson amongst others.

Following the film screening, co-producers Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt will host a discussion on Bill Jay’s impact on the world of photography and share their experience of producing the film with limited budget and resources.

6.30pm - 7.30pm: Exhibition opening of Do Not Bend: Bill Jay’s Photographers Portraits.
7.30pm – 9.00pm: Film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay, produced and directed by Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.
9:00pm – 9.30pm: Interval
9.30pm – 10.30pm: Discussion / Q&A with Do Not Bend film co-producers Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.
