NEWS FROM ACROSS LONDON’S ALTERNATIVE CINEMA SCENE.

Welcome back Phoenix Cinema. Open from 05 November. Tickets on sale!

The historic venue reopens with IDIOT PRAYER – NICK CAVE ALONE AT ALEXANDRA PALACE (d. Nick Cave & Robbie Ryan, 2020) which sees the artist “playing his songs at the piano in a rarely seen stripped back form” (05 NOV 19:30). You can also see this event almost everywhere that’s open…

It’s a great week for film festivals with the end of the week looking particularly crowded, as if the great programming committee had agreed that 04 & 05 NOV were ideal opening nights. Film Africa, Raindance Film Festival, French Film FestivalLondon Korean Film Festival and Doc’n Roll Film Festival all open in venues this week whilst several others continue on- and off-line. 

We know not everyone can or feels safe going to the cinema right now. However, subject to further COVID-19 controls, we see it as our primary job to promote venue-based events as the whiff of popcorn and bubble gum seats are what got us started compiling these listings in the first place. For this reason, we also support events like the Protected Group Screenings at Watermans for anyone who requires greater protection in the darkness. The next one of those is, appropriately enough, CINEMA PARADISO on 02 NOV (see daily listings for details).

In drive-ins, Rooftop Film Club’s current programme comes to an end at Alexandra Palace this week as does Luna Cinema’s residency at Copthall Stadium (aka Allianz Park). The Drive-In at Troubadour Meridian Water extends their 50% discount until the end of 2020 (making it a cosy £17:50/car/film).

IF WE HAD TO SEE JUST ONE EVENT THIS WEEK, IT WOULD BE…

It’s a screen week packed with memorable dates, and we’ll get to HALLOWEEN in a bit… Two other dates stand out for anyone with an interest in democracy, namely the USA election (03 NOV) and Guy Fawkes Night (05 NOV). You can mark the former with a special Birds’ Eye View Reclaim The Frame screening of RAISE HELL: THE LIFE & TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS at Genesis Cinema (03 NOV) and The Prince Charles probably pips other venues to the post for Bonfire night with their 35MM screening of V FOR VENDETTA (05 NOV). See daily listings for all details. 

Having championed the ROY ANDERSSON season at Curzon Cinemas last week (more dates have been added if you’re curious…), it’s time for the maestro’s final film to get a preview: ABOUT ENDLESSNESS at Genesis Cinema (02 NOV 18:55). We also really like the look of Mark Cousins’ WOMEN MAKE FILM season at BFI with Kira Muratova’s THE ASTHENIC SYNDROME (01 NOV 18:00) being a standout. See SEASONS for info.

And it’s time to turn back to HALLOWEEN… Loads of venues have pulled together extensive programmes this season, so we hope you find something suitable to your screen tastes. Our special mention this week goes to The Celluloid Sorceress for her super-rare screening of The Hughes Brothers’ Jack The Ripper exposé FROM HELL 35MM (31 OCT) in a suitably East End venue, Genesis Cinema (which almost makes it a site-specific event…).

Our Featured Attraction of the Week is the Pitshanger Pictures presentation of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) with live organ accompaniment by Henry Tozer at St. Barnabas Church W5 (31 OCT). If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ll know RADIANT CIRCUS had a catastrophe trying to get to their previous event, Fritz’ Lang’s WOMAN IN THE MOON. We are determined not to miss this one!

See you in darkness,

RADIANT CIRCUS

FROM HELL 35MM presented by The Celluloid Sorceress at Genesis Cinema (31 OCT).

ABOUT ENDLESSNESS d. Roy Andersson, 2020 at Genesis Cinema (02 NOV 18:55):

  • Preview: “A reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.”

AN OLD LADY d. Lim Sun-ae, 2020 at Everyman Screen On The Green (03 NOV 18:00):

  • London Korean Film Festival: “69-year-old caregiver Hyo-jeong is undergoing physiotherapy in hospital when she is raped by a much younger male nursing assistant. Attempting to seek legal redress, Hyo-jeong possesses a complete lack of credibility in the eyes of the criminal justice system, and also amongst her closest relationships; what she confronts here is society’s prejudices against older people, and in particular older women’s bodies.”

RAISE HELL: THE LIFE & TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS d. Janice Engel, 2019 + Intro by Keme Nzerem at Genesis Cinema (03 NOV 18:20):

  • Birds’ Eye View #RECLAIMTHEFRAME presents: “Be inspired on US election night by the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on the Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said “Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us to raise hell!”

WHITE RIOT d. Rubika Shah, 2019 + Live Q&A with the director & co-writer/producer Ed Gibbs at Everyman Crystal Palace (03 NOV 19:30):

  • “Rubika Shah’s energising film charts a vital London protest movement. Rock Against Racism (RAR) was formed in 1976, prompted by ‘music’s biggest colonialist’ Eric Clapton and his support of racist MP Enoch Powell. WHITE RIOT blends fresh interviews with queasy archive footage to recreate a hostile environment of anti-immigrant hysteria and National Front marches.”

  • Doc’n Roll Film Festival: “Behind the success of Kelly Jones’ acclaimed 2019 solo tour was an astonishing, untold tale – an unbelievable uphill battle staged in strict secret. Follow the Stereophonics frontman as he faces the biggest challenge of a stage career that began at the age of 12 and has spanned 20 years of huge arena shows. Don’t miss the chance to peek behind the glamour and learn the heartfelt, human story of how one of Britain’s most-loved artists rediscovered his distinctive voice.”

Opening Night: MAMA WEED aka La Daronne d. Jean-Paul Salomé, 2020 + Recorded Q&A with the director at Ciné Lumière (04 NOV 19:00):

  • French Film Festival: “A French-Arabic police translator (Isabelle Huppert) specialises in phone tapping for the anti-narcotics unit. The job is tough and low-paid, but the Chief Inspector is charming. One day, while listening in to drug dealers, she discovers that one of them is the son of her mother’s devoted carer. She decides to protect him and infiltrates a huge drug trafficking network. When she discovers a huge haul of cannabis, she uses the opportunity to her advantage, becoming the Mama Weed in the title.”

Opening Night UK Premiere: STARDUST d. Gabriel Range, 2020 + Q&A with the director at Genesis Cinema (04 NOV 18:00):

  • Raindance Film Festival: “Starring Johnny Flynn (EMMA, BEAST) as a young David Bowie embarking on his first trip to America, STARDUST reveals the inspirations and life events that gave birth to his iconic alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.”

THE HAPPY LIFE 35MM d. Lee Joon-ik, 2007 at Genesis Cinema (05 NOV 18:20):

  • London Korean Film Festival: “Three middle-aged men, all struggling in life, gather together at the funeral of their old classmate. As university students they had all been members of the same rock group, a notentirely-successful endeavour called ‘Active Volcano’. After losing themselves in memories for a time, the jobless Ki-young (Jung Jin-young) suddenly blurts out, “Let’s re-form the band!”. To his friends, and especially to Ki-young’s wife and teenage daughter it sounds like an absurd, crazy idea. But sometimes crazy ideas have a way of picking up steam.”

LOVE AFFAIRS aka Les choses qu’on dit, les choses qu’on fait d. Emmanuel Mouret, 2020 at Ciné Lumière (05 NOV 20:20):

  • French Film Festival: “Holidays in the French countryside provide the perfect setting for Emmanuel Mouret to continue his exploration of all things tender and loving, throwing heart, soul and passion into the subject. François has to rush back to Paris to cover for a sick colleague, leaving his partner Daphne, three months pregnant, to welcome his cousin, Maxime. In the four days until Francois’ return, Daphne and Maxime get to know each other, sharing increasingly intimate stories that bring them closer.”
