FILMS IN LONDON TODAY

SINGLE-O EXHIBITS

Films in London today: AND WITH HIM CAME THE WEST at Picturehouse Central (16 JUN).
Films in London today: AND WITH HIM CAME THE WEST at Picturehouse Central (16 JUN).

Double Bill: AND WITH HIM CAME THE WEST d. Mike Plante, 2019 + MY DARLING CLEMENTINE d. John Ford, 1946 + Q&A with Mike Plante at Picturehouse Central (16 JUN 15:00 – only £10!):

  • “After the moment of the Gunfight at the OK Corral in late 1881, Wyatt Earp became famous in his own time. He was already known within the western territories as a tough lawman. The gunfight represented the epitome of what the wild west stood for: good guys against bad guys in a thrilling duel. The real event was 30 seconds long. He decided he could rewrite history through the magic of movies, hanging out in Hollywood in the 1920s to try to get a movie made about his life. And it actually worked.”

NOTHING WITHOUT US: THE WOMEN WHO WILL END AIDS d. Harriet Hirshorn’s, 2017 + Panel at The Cinema Museum (16 JUN 19:30 – FREE!/Donations requested):

  • The VITO Project and PrEPster present: “the inspiring story of the vital role that women have played – and continue to play – in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. Combining archival footage and interviews with female activists, scientists and scholars in the US and Africa, NOTHING WITHOUT US reveals how women not only shaped grassroots groups like ACT-UP in the U.S., but have also played an essential part in HIV prevention and treatment access throughout sub-Saharan Africa.”

YOU CAN COUNT ON ME 35mm d. Kenneth Lonergan, 2000 + Intro by Matthew Broderick at BFI Southbank (16 JUN 14:00):

  • “Sammy (Laura Linney) lives and works in the town she grew up in, bringing up her son and keeping down a job in the local bank. The arrival of her estranged brother Terry (Mark Ruffalo) brings along a level of support and complication as they find ways to co-exist and deal with past issues.”
