Films in London this week: In Conversation with Malcolm McDowell at BFI (05 APR).

In Conversation with Malcolm McDowell at BFI Southbank (05 APR 18:15):

  • “Few actors have played more than one iconic role in their career. Malcolm McDowell, having embodied such enduring characters as Mick in IF…. (1968) and Alex in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971), is one of those exceptions. Wickedly charismatic onscreen, his career has spanned over five decades across cinema, television, animation and video games.”

Films in London this week: MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON, part of Film Poems at Close-Up (06 APR).
Films in London this week: MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON, part of Film Poems at Close-Up (06 APR).

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE d. Stanley Kubrick, 1971 + Q&A with Malcolm McDowell at Picturehouse Central (06 APR 16:00):

  • “Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s decline-of-civilisation novel remains a chilling, thrilling and unsettling cinematic vision of nihilistic violence and social control. Set in a flamboyantly stylised near-future where gangs of disenfranchised teenagers indulge in narcotic cocktails and revel in acts of ‘ultraviolence’, the film centres on Alex (McDowell) and his band of droogs.”

Film Poems at Close-Up (06 APR 20:00):

  • “On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his first Film Poems touring programme, Peter Todd presents a programme framed by Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid’s MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON 16mm, 1943 and Guy Sherwin’s MESSAGES 16mm, 1983. Curated and introduced by Peter Todd. Readings from Gareth Evans and MESSAGES introduced by Guy Sherwin.”

IF THE DANCER DANCES d. Maia Wechsler, 2018 + Q&A with the director & dancer Lisa Friedman at Barbican (06 APR 16:00):

  • “How can a new cast of dancers inhabit a work from another era? A dance has no script or score; it only comes alive when it’s passed from one dancer to another, body to body. It’s this intimate process we witness in this film as three former members of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company teach Cunningham’s iconic 1968 RainForest to the Stephen Petronio Company.”

NEVER APOLOGIZE: A PERSONAL VISIT WITH LINDSAY ANDERSON d. Mike Kaplan, 2007 + Q&A with the director & Malcolm McDowell at BFI Southbank (06 APR 14:20):

  • “Malcolm McDowell’s funny, insightful, often hilarious and finally very moving celebration of director Lindsay Anderson and their colourful circle of colleagues is a dramatised scrapbook in which the iconoclast actor paints a multifaceted portrait of his equally iconoclast mentor.”

South Social Celebrates Japan at Moving Pictures (06 APR 18:00):

  • “South Social is pleased to partner with The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation to showcase Japanese culture with a film screening, live performance, cuisine and discussion. Central to the event will be a screening of Naoko Ogigami’s feel-good CLOSE-KNIT, 2017.”

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE d. Stanley Kubrick, 1971 + Q&A with Malcolm McDowell at Curzon Mayfair (07 APR 14:30):

  • “Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s decline-of-civilisation novel remains a chilling, thrilling and unsettling cinematic vision of nihilistic violence and social control. Set in a flamboyantly stylised near-future where gangs of disenfranchised teenagers indulge in narcotic cocktails and revel in acts of ‘ultraviolence’, the film centres on Alex (McDowell) and his band of droogs.”

THE FACES WE LOST d. Piotr Cieplak, 2017 + Q&A with the director at DocHouse (07 APR 16:00):

  • “The 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda claimed the lives of nearly one million people in just 100 days. THE FACES WE LOST explores how Rwandans now use personal photographs to commemorate the loved ones they lost.”

PALAIS DE DANCE 35mm d. Maurice Elvey, 1929 + INTRO by Lucie Dutton + LIVE SCORE by Costas Fotopoulos at BFI Southbank (07 APR 13:10):

  • “Cinderella is at the wrong kind of Ball in this romance of a night-watchman’s daughter who takes a job as ‘No.16’ in a sleazy London dance hall. Maurice Elvey is at his best in this lively drama with nice Mabel Poulton and naughty Chilli Bouchier.”

THE GHOUL d. Gareth Tunley, 2017 + Q&A with producer Jack Guttmann at Curzon Wimbledon (09 APR 20:30):

  • Wimbledon Film Club presents: “As a detective, Chris (Tom Meeten), investigates a double murder, the case begins to indicate the best way to follow up leads is to go undercover as a patient seeking psychotherapy for depression. What follows is a sinister story where nothing and no one seems reliable and Chris begins to doubt himself.”

SHIRAZ: A ROMANCE OF INDIA d. Franz Osten, 1928 + LIVE SCORE by Anoushka Shankar at Royal Festival Hall (09 APR 19:30):

  • “A lavish spectacle with a cast of thousands, SHIRAZ: A ROMANCE OF INDIA was shot entirely on location in India and released in 1928. It is the tale of a great love: the fictionalised backstory behind India’s most iconic building, the Taj Mahal, the monument built by a Moghul emperor in the memory of his beloved queen.”

THAT MONSTER: AN ALLEGORY d. Silvia Kolbowski, 2018 + PANEL with the artist & academic Mignon Nixon at ICA (10 APR 18:45):

  • “In a body of video work produced over the past decade, Kolbowski has explored strategies of ‘re-animating’ the past to pose questions about politics in the present. In THAT MONSTER: AN ALLEGORY, she returns to the genre of silent film and Mary Shelley’s fictional tale of man-made monstrosity.”
