Cinema for All South West Spring Viewing Day
Lost In Film is very proud to host the first of the two Cinema for All South West Spring Viewing Days on Sunday 17th April 2016 in Lostwithiel, South East Cornwall. The second leg of the Viewing Day will be in Shipham the following Sunday, 24th April.
The event is open to all Cinema for All Members and Associates and C Fylm organisers in the South West region.
Headlining the Lost In FIlm line-up are two of the top winners from these year’s Oscars®. Brie Larson won ‘Best Actress’ for her portrayal of the mother imprisoned with her son in Lenny Abrahamson’s gripping drama, Room, whilst Spotlight won ‘Best Picture’ for director Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) with its impressive ensemble cast making this story of investigative journalism in Boston truly believable and involving. Another take on the recent past in the States is provided by the over-looked 99 Homes set against the background of the 2008 housing crisis in Florida, starring Andrew Garfield, a long way from his Spiderman role.
Previews usually include one documentary and this year He Named Me Malala has been chosen, Davis Guggenheim’s telling of Malala Yousafrzai’s inspiring story which deserves a wider audience. The final two titles are contrasting comedies from Iceland and India. Rams has some hints of Nordic noir but its story of two sheep-farming brothers has been best described as a ‘moving comedy’. Festival favourite, The Crow’s Egg (Kaaka Muttai), gives the lie to the myth that award-winning sub-titled films are generally dull and worthy with its feel-good energy and its two boy stars.
The day is not just about films but also provides a chance to meet other community cinema organisers in the SW from both Cinema for All and from C Fylm. Many thanks to Carn to Cove for their help in presenting films.
