This week’s highlights:

  • 28th March @ Curzon Soho: Into The Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life + Q&A with Werner Herzog

The acclaimed director offers us his observations on capital punishment in his latest documentary, as part of Curzon DocDays and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Tonight’s Q&A session predictably sold out weeks ago but you can find more information here. Further screenings to be announced shortly.

  •   29th, 30th, 31st March @ BFI: Jobriath A.D.

A highlight of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, BFI’s Brian Robinson calls it “a hymn to the enigmatic, cult glam rocker Jobriath, ‘I am the true fairy of rock’.” Full trailer and tickets available here.

  • 31st March @ BFI: Future Film Programme

A collection of shorts by young filmmakers aged 15-25 as part of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. More details to be revealed shortly and tickets available here.

  • Once Upon A Time In Anatolia @ Curzon Cinemas

Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s 5 star-rated film had me sold before I even read any of the reviews: the mere image of a group of 12 men including police, doctor and murder suspect, set against a desert landscape bodes well for the element of poetry percolating this thriller. Once Upon A Time In Anatolia is still screening at Curzons Soho and Chelsea.
