Evil Does Not Exist with Ryusuke Hamaguchi and Eiko Ishibashi | Picturehouse

Hosted by Picturehouse’s very own Sam Clements, The Love Of Cinema podcast is proudly supported by Kia. On this mini episode, Sam talks to director Ryusuke Hamaguchi and composer Eiko Ishibashi about their new film, Evil Does Not Exist, in cinemas now!  Takumi and his daughter Hana live in Mizubiki Village, close to Tokyo. Like generations before them, they live a modest life according to the cycles and order of nature. One day, the village inhabitants become aware of a plan to build a glamping site near Takumi’s house; offering city residents a comfortable ‘escape’ to nature. When two company representatives from Tokyo arrive in the village to hold a meeting, it becomes clear that the project will have a negative impact on the local water supply, causing unrest. The agency’s mismatched intentions endanger both the ecological balance of the nature plateau and their way of life, with an aftermath that affects Takumi’s life deeply. From the director of Oscar® and BAFTA winner Drive My Car. If you'd like to send us a voice memo for use in a future episode, please email [email protected]. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Copa 71 with Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine | Picturehouse

Felicity Beckett speaks to directors Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine about Copa 71, in cinemas from 8 March.   It is August 1971. Football teams from England, Argentina, Mexico, France, Denmark and Italy are gathering at Mexico City’s sun-drenched Azteca Stadium. The scale of the tournament is monumental: lavish sponsorship, extensive TV coverage, merchandise on every street corner and crowds of over 100,000 hollering fans turn this historic stadium into ‘a cauldron of noise and heat’ match after match. A fawning media treat the players like rock stars. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the greatest moments in international footballing history. But this is a tournament unlike anything that’s happened before. The players on the pitch are all women. And it’s likely you’ve never even heard of it. This is Copa 71, the unofficial Women’s World Cup. Dismissed by both FIFA and domestic football associations around the world, this event has been entirely written out of history. Until now.

Queendom with Agniia Galdanova | Picturehouse

Guest host Michael Urwin talks to director Agniia Galdanova about Queendom, in cinemas now.  Gena, a queer artist from a small town in Russia, dresses in otherworldly costumes made from junk and tape, and protests the government on the streets of Moscow. Born and raised on the harsh streets of Magadan, a frigid outpost of the Soviet gulag, Gena is only 21. She stages radical performances in public that become a new form of art and activism. By doing that, she wants to change people’s perception of beauty and queerness and bring attention to the harassment of the LGBTQ+ community. The performances - often dark, strange, evocative, and queer at their core - are a manifestation of Gena’s subconscious. But they come at a price.

A Year In The Field with Christopher Morris | Picturehouse

Felicity Beckett speaks to director Christopher Morris about our latest Green Screen film, A Year In The Field, coming to select Picturehouse Cinemas soon!  From Winter Solstice 2020 to Winter Solstice 2021, a string of unprecedented worldwide climate disasters, met by weak global political resolve, are revealed as fleeting moments under the ever-present, unflinching granite gaze of the Longstone: an ancient monolith that has stood sentinel in a Cornish field for millennia. Part provocation, part meditation, part invocation, BAFTA-winning documentarian Christopher Morris’ A Year In A Field invites us to slow down as he films for twelve months in the Longstone's field. As the wheel of the year turns, Morris’ 'eco-sophical' polemic unearths a mythic reality buried just below the soil of our consumerist age, suggesting, perhaps, that whilst time may feel like it’s running away at an ever-increasing rate, it’s not too late to pause, reflect, and change.

Killers Of The Flower Moon with Jacqueline West and Julie O’Keefe | Picturehouse

Host Sam Clements speaks to costume designer Jacqueline West and Osage wardrobe consultant Julie O’Keefe about working on the new film by Martin Scorsese, Killers Of The Flower Moon, in cinemas now.  At the turn of the 20th century, oil brought a fortune to the Osage Nation, who became some of the richest people in the world overnight. The wealth of these Native Americans immediately attracted white interlopers, who manipulated, extorted, and stole as much Osage money as they could before resorting to murder. Based on a true story and told through the improbable romance of Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone), “Killers of the Flower Moon” is an epic western crime saga, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal. Also starring Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese from a screenplay by Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese, based on David Grann’s best-selling book.

The Nettle Dress with Dylan Howitt | Picturehouse

Felicity Beckett speaks to director Dylan Hewitt about his new film, The Nettle Dress, which is playing at Picturehouse Cinemas as part of our Green Screen programme. Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress by hand just from the fibre of locally foraged stinging nettles. This is ‘hedgerow couture’, the greenest of slow fashion but also his medicine. It’s how Allan survives the passing of his wife, leaving him and their four children bereft, and how he finds a beautiful way to honour her. Stunningly filmed by award-winning documentary maker Dylan Howitt, The Nettle Dress follows Allan's journey through seasons and years, foraging, spinning, weaving, cutting and sewing the cloth, before finally sharing a healing vision of the dress back in the woods where the nettles were picked, worn by one of his daughters. A labour of love in the truest sense, The Nettle Dress is a modern-day fairytale and hymn to the healing power of nature and slow craft. It’s one story representing a huge groundswell of people rediscovering the joys of making. Actor Mark Rylance called the film “Exquisite and inspiring, beautiful and helpful for anyone suffering loss or grief”.

A Crack In The Mountain with Alastair Evans | Picturehouse

Host Flick Beckett speaks to director Alastair Evans about his new film, A Crack In The Mountain, in cinemas now.  Hang Sơn Đoòng which translates as “mountain river cave”, is located in the Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park in Quảng Bình Province in Vietnam. The national park is also a UNESCO world heritage site. First found in 1990 by a local farmer, it wasn’t explored until 2009 when a British expedition team rigged ropes and descended down. Many people have described Sơn Đoòng as a lost world. It has its own lake, jungle and even a unique weather system. In 2014 plans were announced to build a cable car into Sơn Đoòng. With many arguing that this would destroy the cave’s delicate eco-system and the local community divided over the benefits this development would bring, the film follows those caught up in the unfolding events. The documentary also uses the narrative as a lens through which to investigate related themes such as the challenges of modern day exploration, environmental conservation & sustainability, and the perils of operating as an activist in a country such as Vietnam where freedom of speech is severely curtailed.

Bae Doona’s answers are translated by Seh Hyun Rho.  On a rainy night in Busan, So-young (Lee ‘IU’ Ji-eun) leaves her baby Woo-sung outside a ‘baby box’, a safe place set up in Korean churches for new mothers to leave unwanted infants. Instead, he’s picked up by Sang-hyun (Parasite’s Song Kang-ho) who runs an unofficial adoption brokerage and plans to find him a new home. So-young tracks down both Sang-hyun and his business partner Dong-soo (Gang Dong-won) and decides to join their pursuit (alongside a seven-year-old stowaway from a nearby orphanage), but as they search for Woo-sung’s new family, the unlikely group evolves into something of a family themselves – unaware they’re being tailed by two detectives (Bae Doona, Lee Joo-young) who are determined to stop them. Heartwarming, funny and moving, BROKER is the outstanding new film from Hirokazu Kore-eda, the acclaimed director of Shoplifters.   If you'd like to send us a voice memo for use in a future episode, please email [email protected].

Felicity Beckett speaks to legendary Belgian directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne about their new film Tori and Lokita, in cinemas now.  This Cannes award-winner by the renowned Dardenne brothers is a moving and typically uncompromising drama about two teenage migrants trying to build a new life. Tori and Lokita are living in Belgium after surviving a dangerous journey together from West Africa.

Desperate to pay the traffickers who smuggled them into Europe and send money to relatives, they supplement their wages from restaurant work by selling drugs.

She Said with Maria Schrader | Picturehouse

Felicity Beckett talks to director Maria Schrader about her new film She Said, in cinemas now. This powerful investigative drama - inspired by true events - depicts how two New York Times reporters uncovered the widespread sexual abuse of women by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.  Adapted from the book by journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, She Said charts their months of painstaking research. They gradually piece together a horrifying trail of systemic misconduct that leads to Weinstein but must overcome a culture of silence and fear, and the non-disclosure agreements that prevent many survivors from speaking out.  Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan capture the dedication and commitment of the duo with conviction - they are determined to support each other, and the women whose experiences they have uncovered. The notable cast also includes Patricia Clarkson and Samantha Morton. With a nod to the likes of Spotlight and All the President’s Men, this is a gripping account of a pivotal cultural moment that helped to mobilise the #MeToo movement.

ParaNorman with Chris Butler | Picturehouse

Hosted by Picturehouse’s very own Sam Clements, The Love Of Cinema podcast is proudly supported by Kia. Sam is joined by writer-director Chris Butler from Laika Studios to discuss the 10th anniversary re-release of ParaNorman. As a co-writer of Coraline and the co-director of Flushed Away respectively, Chris Butler and Sam Fell had just the credentials to create arguably the most innovative 3D animation to date. Employing a unique hybrid of CGI and stop-motion technology, ParaNorman tells of a town besieged by rudely awakened and rather irate zombies. The town’s only hope of salvation is Norman, a boy blessed with the ability to understand the zombies’ language (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee, in a role that could hardly be more different from his character in The Road). As he battles with ghosts, witches and moronic adults as well as the living dead, Norman’s supernatural powers are entertainingly stretched to their limits, and the film’s breathtaking pace is further enhanced by stellar voicing from the likes of John Goodman, Elaine Stritch and Casey Affleck.

It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge - Kempton had spun a web of lies. The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage - how and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale.
