Falling between the cracks in society…

1

We’re only a few days away from our second screening of the season, and for this one we’re taking you to the Middle East for the story of three very different, young Palestinian women sharing a flat in Tel Aviv.

The three women suffer from belonging neither to traditional Arab society nor to secular Westernised society; they live in the space “in between” these two, often placing them at odds with their families and the cultures surrounding them.

 

There’s still time for friends and family to take advantage of this year’s membership offer – this season’s 8 remaining films for £25, that’s the price of a cup of coffee per film.  Membership forms can be found on our website, or at the Crewkerne Local Information Centre in the Town Hall – or better still, come along to Friday’s screening.

 

Don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter; we really appreciate those of you who do and help to share our events with the community.

This Friday 13th is lucky for FilmCrew members!

Not only do they get to see Hidden Figures but they can also cast their vote on next month’s film.

Hidden Figures tells the true story of three black American women who overcame all sorts of challenges and prejudice to become instrumental in NASA’s attempt to launch man into space – and to bring him back safely. A heart-warming tale of determination.

Victoria and Abdul

Judi Dench stars in Stephen Frears’ well-received drama based on the real-life relationship between Queen Victoria and her Indian man-servant

My Cousin Rachel
Based on the Daphne du Maurier novel and filmed in England and Italy, this mysterious dark romance weaves a story of intrigue, revenge and desire.

The Big Sick

This witty romcom shows a charming young couple from different racial backgrounds struggling with relationship issues and a life-threatening illness.

Warming up for Friday

Burn Burn Burn (2)

As the snow and ice start to fade and everyone throws more logs into their wood burners, we have our next screening this week with the suitably titled ‘Burn Burn Burn’.

The film is a coming-of-age tale, inspired by the Jack Kerouac novel On the Road published in 1957. The fictional plot follows the story of two girls, Seph and Alex, taking a road trip to follow the instructions of their close friend Dan, who has died and given them instructions where to scatter his ashes. The ashes (stored in tupperware in the glove compartment) keep diminishing in quantity as the trip progresses.

 

Doors open at 7pm with the film starting at 7:30.

Visitors – £6 per person
