1 - 16 October 2021: Filmfarsi

Filmfarsi is Ehsan Khoshbakht’s journey through the history of Iranian popular cinema before the 1979 revolution. The term “filmfarsi” refers to the rowdy and melodramatic genre films made in Iran from the early 1950s to 1979. This documentary provides a fascinating archaeology of “the biggest secret in cinema history”

16 - 24 October 2021: Pierrot le fou

In this stunning exploration of personal and global violence, Godard depicts the picaresque journey across France of a disaffected Everyman and his girlfriend, who become involved in criminal activities along the way.
17 - 30 October 2021: Le doulos

17 - 30 October 2021: Le doulos

The backstabbing criminals in the shadowy underworld of Jean-Pierre Melville's Le doulos have only one guiding principle: “Lie or die.” Shot and edited with Melville’s trademark cool and featuring masterfully stylized dialogue and performances, Le doulos is one of the filmmaker’s most gripping crime dramas.
17 - 29 October 2021: Breathless

17 - 29 October 2021: Breathless

One of the most important films to emerge from the French New Wave, Breathless is set in the fifties, when the influence of American culture in France was being felt at every level of life. Godard presents a story of boy-meets-girl animated by myths of innocence abroad and of the alienated gangster of B-movies
22 - 31 October 2021: A Woman Is a Woman

22 - 31 October 2021: A Woman Is a Woman

A dizzying compendium of colour, humour, and the music of renowned composer Michel Legrand, A Woman Is a Woman finds the young Godard at his warmest and most accessible, revelling in and scrutinizing the mechanics of his great obsession: the cinema.
23 - 31 October 2021: Léon Morin, Priest

23 - 31 October 2021: Léon Morin, Priest

Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance in the hot-under-the-collar Léon Morin, Priest, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema’s towering virtuosos.

24 - 30 October 2021: Seven Days… Seven Nights

24 - 30 October 2021: Seven Days… Seven Nights

"Moderate and songlike” – a musical tempo, but also an apt descriptor of this moody, deliberate drama co-scripted by Duras from her novel. Theatre giant Peter Brook’s restrained direction casts rare moments of intensity in relief, and Armand Thirard’s crisp cinematography conveys the desolation of life in a windswept town where “summer never comes.”
