English and Kazakh with English subtitles.

Dir:  Otto Bell,   English narration Daisy Ridley

In the remote Mongolian landscape, the nomadic Kazakh people have for generations perfected fox hunting, using trained eagles.  It was traditionally an exclusively male sport, but Aisholpan, the 13 year old daughter of a much-garlanded eagle hunter, calmly decides to change all that.  Set against the breath-taking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, the Eagle Huntress features some of the  most awe-inspiring cinematography ever captured in a documentary, giving this intimate tale of a young girl’s quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.

“A joyful, majestic film” – HomaKhaleeli, The Observer.

Dir:  Mick Jackson. Cast: Timothy Spall, Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Alex Jennings, Andrew Scott

In 1993 American academic Deborah Lipstadt dubbed British historian David Irving “one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial”.  Irving was well known for his outspoken pronouncements, which included declaring that there had never been gas chambers at Auschwitz. Lipstadt was stunned, then, when he sued her for libel. Their landmark battle is the subject of this compelling courtroom drama scripted by David Hare.  His screenplay stays true to the actual events; the dialogue from the courtroom scenes was taken verbatim from the court records.  There are strong performances from Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt, Timothy Spall as Irving, Tom Wilkinson as QC Richard Rampton and Alex Jennings as the Judge, Sir Charles Gray.   “This film, telling its story with punchy commitment and force, was a breath of fresh air”.  Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

Dir:  Terence Davies. Cast: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff, Keith Carradine,Johdi May

This is the story of the American poet Emily Dickinson, from her early days as a young schoolgirl to her later years as a reclusive unrecognized artist.  Growing up unmarried in the bosom of her loving family in Amherst, Mass, Emily (Nixon, an outstanding performance) has the sharp wit and searching mind of a woman out of step with the codes and formalities of her time.  Her story is beautifully told by Director Terence Davies, with fine supporting performances by Ehle (Emily’s sister Vinnie),  Carradine (her lawyer father Edward) and her brother Austin (Duff).  “A Quiet Passion is one of those rare movies about a writer that conveys the sense that the character, as depicted, is capable of artistic creation at a world-historic height of achievement”. Richard Brody, The New Yorker.

Market Lane,Wells, NR23 1RB


EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is thrilled to present this film of one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before travelling to London and Washington.

One can’t appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery London, MoMA New York, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the impressionists – until now.

Directed by Phil Grabsky.
