Noma, My Perfect Storm
10th Apr 2016 7:00pm
(UK) – Rated M, Some Subtitles
Noma, My Perfect Storm is a creative journey into the mind of René Redzepi. A modern ugly duckling, bullied by his peers, Redzepi found his home in no man’s land and transformed into a swan. He revolutionised the entire world of gastronomy, inventing the alphabet and vocabulary that would infuse newfound pedigree of Nordic cuisine and established a new edible world whilst radically changing the image of the modern chef. However, beneath the polished surface, cracks appear and 2013 stands as the worst year in Redzepi’s career. He fights his way back to the top, reinventing NOMA, his internationally acclaimed restaurant, to reclaim the title of best restaurant in the world for the fourth time.
Running Time – 99 minutes
The Bélier Family
17th Apr 2016 7:00pm
(FRANCE) – Rated M, Subtitled
In the Belier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful 16-year-old Paula. She acts as an indispensable interpreter for her parents and younger brother, especially in the running of the family dairy farm. However, Paula’s attentions are elsewhere – she’s witnessed the handsome new boy at school sign up for the choir, and impulsively joined too. It’s not long before her music teacher discovers her considerable singing talent; however, his encouragement only exacerbates the matter of Paula’s independence. Building to a heart-soaring and emotional finale The Bélier Family is a feel-great triumph.
France’s most popular film of 2015.
Running Time: 105 minutes
24th Apr 2016 7:00pm
(ICELAND) – Rated M, Subtitled
Majestically shot in a spectacular, weather-swept valley, this wryly observed fable about two brothers who are more obstinate than the sheep they breed begins as a droll comedy about rural life and grows into a graceful and mythic tale about family, community and legacy.
Winner at 2015 Cannes International Film Festival, Prix Un Certain Regard, Rams received a 10 minute standing ovation at its premiere.
Running Time: 93 minutes
3 – 24 April 2016
