DETROIT USA 2017 (15)

DETROIT USA 2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Directed by  Kathryn Bigelow and starring John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski & Anthony Mackie

Detroit is a drama based on real events during the 1967 Detroit Riots:  that summer, one of the largest riots in the history of the USA erupted in Detroit, Michigan.   The event which sparked it off was relatively small-scale- the raiding of an unlicenced club frequented by African-Americans – but the kindling was centuries of oppression by arrogant white forces.  The anger hit breaking point and over five days the city burned;  43 were killed and hundreds more were injured.  

Kathryn Bigelow, the Oscar- winning director of THE HURT LOCKER, and the first woman to win this award, depicts these days in a gripping fictionalised reconstruction of those momentous days.  “This is an urgent, maddening, superbly made film and its relevance to what is happening right now in America could not be clearer” Olly Richards  The Telegraph.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Italy/France/Brazil/USA (15)

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Italy/France/Brazil/USA


PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


In English, Italian and French –subtitles where necessary

Directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Arnie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amiia Casar, Esther Garrel &Victoire Du Bois.

Nominated for best feature at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Luca Guadagnino’s latest film is a sublime, sun-kissed romance based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. During the shimmering summer of 1983, precocious Italian-American teenager Elio (a revelatory Chalamet) spends his days at his family’s 17th-century Lombardy villa studying music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). When the much older Oliver (Hammer) arrives to study with his historian father (Stuhlbarg), however, Elio’s romantic ambitions develop in a very different direction. Reining in the ostentatious style that characterised his earlier work, Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) immerses the viewer in the stunning, seductive setting of the Italian Riviera, and allows Call Me By Your Name to flourish as an evocation of the universal joys and pains of first love.

“It’s an incomparably lovely period romance, as warm and therapeutic as the sunlight which suffuses every frame” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
