To mark the second anniversary of our cinema we revisit our opening programme, presenting six films by John Cassavetes on 35mm.

3 - 24 September 2017: Close-Up on Ruth Beckermann

Close-Up presents the first UK retrospective on the films of Ruth Beckermann. Born in Vienna in 1952, Beckermann has been creating essay films and documentaries for 40 years and is well known internationally as one of Austria’s most courageous and spirited filmmakers. This programme explores the work of a director equally suspicious of closed narrative forms and linear views of history and memory.
