This week’s highlights:
- 20th April – 3rd May: Palestine Film Festival 2012
See below for details of particular screenings and events.
- 25th April @ Barbican: Promised Lands + The Beautiful Language (introduction by Ella Shohat)
A unique opportunity to view Susan Sontag’s 1974 post-Yom Kippur War documentary, alongside Mounir Fatmi’s visually groundbreaking The Beautiful Lanugage. Film scholar Ella Shohat will be presenting both films; catch her the following day discussing her book Israeli Cinema: East/West and the Politics of Representation. Tickets and information for both events which are part of the Palestine Film Festival 2012 are available here.
- until 27th April @ ICA: Blank City
Fans of Jim Jarmusch, Nick Zedd and Gaspar Noe’s work, grab a ticket for one of the last few screenings of Celine Danhier’s 2011 documentary. If you’re familiar with the No Wave movement, and more particularly if you’re not, this is a must-see.
- 28th April @ Parsons Green: Film Fugitive Presents: Rear Window
If you’re not quite sure how an angel of the big screen (Grace Kelly), an unholy treatment of a terrifying subject (by Alfred Hitchcock), and painted glass and a pew (in St Dionis, Parsons Green) all fit together, why not find out for yourself? One of four pop-up cinema screenings by Film Fugitive for the Pull Up A Hitchcock Pew series.
