JAMES McCALLUM ART EXHIBITION (U)

JAMES McCALLUM ART EXHIBITION

PRESENTED BY THE MALTINGS TRUST

at The Sackhouse,

Wells NR23 1AN


James McCallum is an artist based in North Norfolk. He is a graduate of The Royal College of Art and is best known for his watercolour paintings of the natural world, particularly birds, made outdoors from life.

Working directly from nature has enabled him to develop a thorough knowledge of the behaviour and visual language of wildlife in its chosen surroundings. The behaviour of wild creatures is frequently complex and often surprising and he uses drawing and painting as a means of recording what he sees. Correctly interpreting and accurately representing fleeting moments of action has proved an exciting challenge and has increasingly become a focus for his work.

The resulting pictures made rapidly whilst watching have an authenticity and energy difficult to reproduce in the studio.

Although happily engrossed in studying the wildlife of his native Norfolk, his interests, particularly in migrant birds, have taken him to many parts of the world. These have included visits to Europe, The Middle East, Africa and Japan. The North and Arctic have a special appeal and have resulted in trips to exciting destinations such as Spitsbergen and Hokkaido.

Most cherished are long periods spent in Finnish Lapland, Varanger and Alaska and joining Russian expeditions to remote regions of Chukotka and Kamchatka.

The results of some of these trips to the North were published in his book Arctic Flight which was awarded ‘Best Bird Book of the Year’ in 2007 by British Birds and The British Trust for Ornithology.

Seven books of his paintings and observations have been published. The latest being The Long, Wild Shore - Bird and Seal Seasons on Blakeney Point.

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS USA/UK/Mongolia 2016 (U)

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS USA/UK/Mongolia 2016

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane,Wells NR23 1RB


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.

YOUNG MARX - NT LIVE (12A)

YOUNG MARX - NT LIVE

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


From the Bridge Theatre, London

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production  is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

DENIAL UK/USA 2016 (12A)

DENIAL UK/USA  2016

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


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.

A QUIET PASSION UK 2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane,Wells NR23 1RB


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.
