Tue 14th May - 7pm

Dir: Robert Filliou
Dur: 127mins
Introduced by Lisa Le Feuvre, this
programme shows several of
Filliou's films, each demonstrating
his 'principle of equivalence'
which measures all products of
human labour by the categories
'well made', 'badly made' or
'not made'.
Showing in conjunction with the
exhibition Robert Filliou: The Institute
of Endless Possibilities at the Henry
Moore Institute (21st March 2013 23rd June).

To clear her debts, the titular
Madame sells some earrings
to the jeweller from whom her
husband originally acquired
them. The jeweller discreetly
informs the husband, who then
buys them for his mistress, who’s
just leaving for Constantinople,
where she is obliged to sell them
to a Baron, who in turn presents
them to Madame, who by then
has become his lover...
Although thematically the tale
is the stuff of farce, the wit here
is subtler, and the morality more
complex and mannered. This is a
highly rewarding, elegant period
piece by a master auteur.

HELEN OF FOUR GATES was
made in Hebden Bridge in 1920
by silent film pioneer Cecil M.
Hepworth. The film had people
queuing round the block at
cinemas when it first opened in
1921, but later fell into obscurity
with all copies believed to be
destroyed up until 2007 when
an original 35mm print was
discovered in a film vault in
Canada. The print was lovingly
restored by the BFI and we’re very
happy to present it to you as our
official Yorkshire Day film of 2013.

Young, effervescent and full of
life, Murielle has a promising
future ahead of her when
she meets and falls for the
handsome Mounir. A wedding
soon follows, and the happy
couple move in with Mounir’s
adoptive father Dr Pinget. As
the couple have four beautiful
daughters, tensions rise between
Murielle and the controlling
doctor. Director Lafosse's intense,
multilayered dissection of an
unorthodox family unit is based
on real-life events. Dequenne
won the Best Actress award in
the Un Certain Regard section
at Cannes for her devastating
portrayal of a young woman
losing her mind.
Conor Masterson’s film IN THE
DEEP SHADE is not a ‘definitive’
career-spanning documentary
of influential Irish rock/folk
band The Frames. Nor is it a
fly-on-the-wall expose or an usagainst-the-world hero saga. It is,
simply put, a stark and beautiful
portrait of an extraordinary
band, a band who have played
together for over 20 years. With
a photographer’s eye and a
painterly aesthetic, Masterson
examines the ever-evolving
relationship between five
musicians who’ve known each
other for many years, and over
the course of those years have
developed an almost unspoken
and intuitive way of playing
music together.

US 2012 , 92mins
When a documentary opens with
its subject belting the director
hard on the nose, you know you’re
in for something pretty unusual
and the legendary drummer
Ginger Baker certainly is that.
Inspired by great post-war jazz
players like Phil Seamen and Max
Roach, Baker is best known for his
work with Eric Clapton in Cream
though it was later when he left
for Nigeria in pursuit of musical
icon Fela Kuti that he truly came
into his own as an artist. BEWARE
OF MR. BAKER features fascinating
archive footage, interviews with
the man himself and his musical
peers as well as family members
offering up a stunning insight into
a true original.

The Danish cargo ship MV Rozen
is heading for harbour when it
is hijacked by Somali pirates in
the Indian Ocean. When the
pirates issue a ransom demand
to the head of the shipping
company (Søren Malling,THE
KILLING) for the safe return of the
crew and the boat he brings
in a professional negotiator to
help resolve the problem, but
his own arrogance quickly gets
in the way. Lindholm is one of
the most exciting filmmakers
working in Denmark at the
moment with writing credits on
Thomas Vinterberg’s THE HUNT
and acclaimed drama series
BORGEN. With A HIJACKING
Lindholm has crafted an intense,
meticulously researched
and nail-biting thriller about
contemporary piracy.

With complex thrillers like TAKE
SHELTER and PREMIUM RUSH
recently under his belt, Shannon
is emerging as the go-to guy for
damaged-goods anti-heroes. In
his portrayal of real-life freelance
killer Richard Kuklinski he emits
a certain quiet, psychopathic
menace that is truly chilling.
Married to his unsuspecting
teenage sweetheart, Kuklinski
is hired to do the dirty work for
the more overtly nasty New
Jersey gangster Roy Demeo. It’s
a simple tale of killer take all - or
at any rate, most - but Shannon’s
considerable presence, and the
gritty ’70s look created by director
Ariel Vromen, ensure that THE
ICEMAN exerts an unyielding grip
on its audience.
Malcolm and Sofia, two
determined teens from the
Bronx, are the ultimate graffitiwriters. When a rival gang
buffs their latest masterpiece,
they must hatch a plan to get
revenge by tagging an iconic
NYC landmark, but they need
to raise $500 to pull off their
spectacular scheme. Over the
course of two whirlwind, sunsoaked summer days, Malcolm
and Sofia travel on an epic
urban adventure involving
black market spray cans, illicit
bodegas, stolen sneakers,
a high stakes heist, and a
beautiful, stoned girl whose
necklace is literally their key to
becoming the biggest writers in

Much in the spirit of the play on
which it’s based, Joss Whedon’s
version of Shakespeare’s romantic
comedy was filmed in his Santa
Monica mansion in just 12 days.
The simplicity of the production
is enhanced by the decision to
shoot in monochrome and to
retain much of Shakespeare’s
dialogue.That strategy is further
supported by a cast of mainly
TV actors from Whedon’s past
projects, with Acker and Denisof
especially effective as the
combative ex- lovers Beatrice and
Benedick, who are persuaded
by some visiting noblemen to
kiss and make up.The result is a
pacey, amusing work that even
Shakespeare-phobes will find
engaging.
Spring, 1958. 21-year-old Rose
lives with her grouchy widower
father. Engaged to the son of
the local mechanic, she seems
destined for the quiet life. But
that's not the life Rose longs for.
When she travels to Normandy,
where charismatic insurance
agency boss Louis is advertising
for a secretary, the ensuing
interview is a disaster. But Rose
reveals a special gift - she can
type at extraordinary speeds.
Roinsard’s debut is a little bit
THE ARTIST and, thanks to its
charismatic leads, a lot Rock
Hudson/Doris Day. With luscious
cinematography and perfect
period set and costume design
POPULAIRE is a pleasurable treat
for all the senses.

Aguirre, the
Wrath of God
(Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes)
15th, 16th and 19th Jun
Dir: Werner Herzog
Starring: Klaus Kinski, Cecilia
Rivera, Ruy Guerra, Helena Rojo
DE 1972, 95mins
German with English Subtitles
Perhaps the most famed and
well-regarded collaboration
between New German Cinema
director Werner Herzog and his
frequent leading man, Klaus
Kinski. This tale of megalomania
and doomed obsession in
16th-century Peru sees Spanish
conquistadors penetrate
mountains and rainforests in
search of the mythical city of El
Dorado. AGUIRRE is a hypnotic
and haunting fever dream of a
film that more than deserves its
reputation as an essential piece
of world cinema. The version
screening is a newly restored
digital re-release of the film from
the BFI.
Before Midnight
From Fri 21st Jun (TBC)
Dir: Richard Linklater
Starring: Ethan Hawke,
Julie Delpy
US 2013, 108mins
Taking place nine years after
BEFORE SUNSET the final episode
in Linklater’s trilogy retains its core
simplicity: two lovers discuss their
lives and love during a single day.
Co-writers Hawke and Delpy
are the now very grown-up
Paris-based couple, but here we
find them holidaying in Greece
and pondering their future and that of their twin girls, born
since we last met the pair. Long
takes and extended dialogue
provide plenty of room for the
characters to develop over the
course of the film, with Hawke
and Delpy admirably conveying
the subtleties of a durable but
far from uncomplicated union
which constantly reminds us of
the challenges - and rewards - of
keeping such a partnership alive.
Something In The Air
(Après mai)
22nd and 26th Jun
15
Dir: Olivier Assayas
Starring: Clement Metayer,
Lola Creton, Felix Armand
FR 2012, 122mins
French with English subtitles
The latest film from the French
auteur behind IRMA VEP
and SUMMER HOURS, Olivier
Assayas, is again inspired by
the revolutionary France that
spawned his 2010 TV miniseries
CARLOS THE JACKAL. SOMETHING
IN THE AIR begins with a couple
of moody, middle-class students
who, having been somewhat
radicalised by the events in
Paris of May 1968, flee to Italy
with their friend Alain after
accidentally wounding a
security guard. There they fall in
with activist filmmakers, before
disillusionment and romantic
machinations change their
lives. An honest, beautifully shot
paean to youthful idealism and
its consequences.
I Am Nasrine

15
Dir: Tina Gharavi
Starring: Micsha Sadeghi,
Shiraz Haq, Christian Coulson
UK 2012, 88mins
When you change where you
are, does who you are change
too? I AM NASRINE is an intimate
journey of self-discovery, a film
that is both startlingly beautiful

modern day Tehran and the
UK, the film follows the paths
of Nasrine and Ali, a sister and
brother from a comfortable,
middle class Iranian home.
Following a run in with the police
Nasrine’s father decides to send
her and Ali to the perceived
safety of the UK. As Nasrine
and Ali find themselves in a
completely new land, exiled from
all that is familiar to them, for the
first time they are able to find
their own paths.
