  • Maghreb Ciné presents: “The story of the life-and-death struggle between the French colonial government and the Algerian Liberation Front. This powerful film – shot in a gritty documentary style – is one of the most influential movies of all time, depicting the brutal acts of both sides.”

Films in London this week: IVUL at Close-Up (16 FEB).

Andrew Kötting: Earthworks + INTRO/Q&A by Andrew Kötting at Close-Up (16 FEB various times):

  • :Andrew Kötting presents a rare opportunity to see his Earthworks trilogy in its entirety. Taking place on, above and below the earth, as a whole the trilogy offers an experimental mediation on human existence. Kötting will introduce all three films and will be in conversation with Gareth Evans prior to the final film.” Includes: THIS FILTHY EARTH d. Andrew Kötting, 2001 (14:00); IVUL d. Andrew Kötting, 2009 (17:00); and, LEK AND THE DOGS d. Andrew Kötting, 2017 (20:00).

CENTRAL BUS STATION d. Tomáš Elšík, 2018 + Q&A with the director at Rio Cinema (16 FEB 15:30):

  • “Most Israelis pass through the central bus station in south Tel Aviv as fast as they can. It is dirty and decaying, its maze of corridors a haven for drug addicts. The story of an ambitious vision and a flawed realisation is the focus of this award-winning documentary.”

French Impressions: ORPHÉE d. Jean Cocteau, 1950 + TALK by Jon Davis at Watermans (16 FEB 13:00):

  • “This magical retelling of the Orpheus myth turns the lyre-playing singer of Greek legend into a famous left-bank poet in postwar Paris. Fallen out of favour and lost for poetic inspiration, Orphée becomes obsessed with a mysterious black-clad princess who first claims the life of a rival poet, and then Eurydice, his wife.”

MIDNIGHT EXCESS: THE STUD/THE BITCH d. Quentin Masters, 1978/d. Gerry O’Hara, 1979 at Rio Cinema (16 FEB 23:00+):

  • SUPAKINO and Zodiac Film Club present: “A dirty disco double bill featuring the infamous Joan Collins films THE STUD (1978) and THE BITCH (1979). A rousing alternative to Valentine’s Day, we invite you to put on your platforms, bring a date and prepare to dance.”

THE PONDS d. Patrick McLennan & Samuel Smith, 2018 + Q&A with the directors at Rio Cinema (17 FEB 15:45):

  • “In a world of flux, chaos and Brexit, it certainly is a shock to discover some experiences remain natural, unhurried and unchanged. THE PONDS explores one of them. In the middle of London lies Hampstead Heath, 320 hectares of forest and parkland plus three swimming ponds. People swim in them all year round, whatever the weather, just as they did in the time of Keats and Constable.”

SHOAH: FOUR SISTERS d. Claude Lanzmann, 2018 at Close-Up (17 FEB 18:00):

  • “Starting in 1999, Claude Lanzmann made several films that could be considered satellites of Shoah, comprised of interviews conducted in the 1970s that didn’t make it into the final, monumental work. In the last years of the late director’s life, he decided to devote a film to four women from four different areas of Eastern Europe with four different destinies, each finding herself improbably alive after war’s end.”

Films in London this week: CHEF FLYNN at DocHouse (18 FEB).

A PRIVATE WAR d. Matthew Heineman, 2018 + Q&A with Paul Conroy at Curzon Mayfair (18 FEB 18:10):

  • “The first feature from documentary director Matthew Heineman avoids biopic cliches and instead asks troubling deeper questions about Marie Colvin’s motivations. Told with the genuine savagery and chaos of modern warfare, it is a testament to the pursuit of the truth at all costs.”

CHEF FLYNN d. Cameron Yates, 2018 + INTRO with the director at DocHouse (18 FEB 16:30):

  • “It started off “like a nutty play date”: Flynn McGarry’s mother indulged his love of fancy cooking by letting the eleven year old run a pop up restaurant from her front room in California, staffed by his friends.

Films in London this week: AFTER THE STORM at The Exchange (19 FEB).

OLD BOYS d. Toby MacDonald, 2018 + Q&A with the director & actor Alex Lawther at Curzon Soho (19 FEB 18:30):

  • “A sweet British coming of age comedy that hilariously updates Cyrano de Bergerac. Amberson (Alex Lawther) is the bottom of the pecking order at boys’ boarding school Caldermount. Picked last for everything and awkward beyond belief, he is incapable of winning the attention of Agnes, the daughter of a visiting French teacher.”
