Moonlight (15)

A young man deals with his dysfunctional home life and comes of age in Miami during the "War on Drugs" era. The story of his struggle to find himself is told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love while grappling with his own sexuality.

Directed by Barry Jenkins

Starring Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp, Duan Sanderson

'Moonlight takes the pain of growing up and turns it into hardened scars and private caresses. This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies: to understand, to come closer, to ache -- hopefully with another.' - Timeout

'Exhilaration and melancholy are dispensed in equal doses by Moonlight, destined to be one of the better-reviewed films of this year, and for good reason: It's a masterpiece -- an overused word, but not the wrong one.' - Wall Street Journal

Gregory Porter: Don't Forget Your Music (TBC)

Followed by a Q&A with Director Alfred Bailey.

Doc'n Roll FF presents:

An intimate portrait of an incomparable talent that explores some of the trials that Porter has encountered in his life: the absence of his father growing up and how jazz music filled the void, racial hostility in his hometown, and his triumphant journey to musical success. This feature film was shot over four years and spans the life and career of the breakthrough star. New interviews and archive footage chart Gregory Porter’s incredible journey from humble beginnings in Bakersfield, California, to stage, studio and beyond, with his remarkable story underpinned by exclusive access during recording of the new album, TAKE ME TO THE ALLEY. The film features contributions from musical luminaries including Don Was, Hubert Laws, Van Morrison, Jools Holland, Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, Jana Herzen and many more...

The film touches on universal themes of fulfilling one’s promise, the hardest and most important lessons gleaned from life, and how success can come calling for you at any time. Above all it speaks of the redemptive, all-conquering power of a mother’s love - the inspiration that would ultimately lead him back on the path to his destiny

The Cabinet Of Living Cinema

For one night only, The Cabinet Of Living Cinema presents


After a devastating flood, an artist finds refuge on an island of dissenters and visionaries. The Kingdom of Paul Nash is a “graphic novel ballad”, a fable, a celebration of love, chance, and surrealism.

Live score and foley by the Cabinet of Living Cinema.

Illustrations by James Edwards and animation by Tom Brown.

Inspired by the paintings of Paul Nash.

70 years after Nash’s death in Boscombe, 1946, The Kingdom of Paul Nash brings together graphic novel artists with musicians from the Cabinet of Living Cinema and Dorset folk musicians to trace his journey to a new artistic vision, inspired by the intense relationship he had with fellow surrealist, Eileen Agar, whilst living in Purbeck.

The Kingdom of Paul Nash will be followed by a programme of short films exploring surrealism, illustration and natural history.

“Mesmerising, dream-like, and wonderfully illustrated and animated, The Cabinet of Living Cinema’s second “graphic novel ballad” touches upon Nash’s experiences on the Western Front during the First World War as well as his affair with the artist Eileen Agar in Dorset during the Thirties. Rich in symbolism and metaphor, it also benefits from a lilting, intense score with wistful folk songs, dramatising elemental aspects of Dorset’s landscape and, of course, the love affair itself.

Beautiful”. Alastair Sooke, Art critic, The Daily Telegraph.

Theatre of the Wandering West combines beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and animation, ethereal soundscapes and music, Yiddish ballads and roaring Klezmer to tell an incredible story of a chance encounter and unrequited love. This "graphic novel ballad" will be followed by the Cabinet's touring show The Kingdom of Paul Nash. This is a unique double bill performance especially devised for the crouch end Arthouse.

HR: Finding Joseph I (TBC)

Doc'n Roll FF presents:

An intriguing, incisive and intimate film chronicling the eccentric life of punk rock reggae singer Paul "HR" Hudson of Bad Brains! The charismatic frontman's explosive live performances helped pioneer hardcore punk while delivering an enlightening message of positive mental attitude. HR's heavy devotion to the Rastafarian faith guided him in a spiritual direction, and he would leave the band several times to explore his love for reggae music. Over the years HR’s increasingly unpredictable and abnormal behaviour convinced many that he is suffering from mental illness.

Finding Joseph I delicately illustrates the true story behind the legendary lead singer's life, career and struggles, with never-before-seen archival footage, photography and exclusive interviews. Featured interviewees include Earl Hudson (Bad Brains/Brother), Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Anthony Countey (Bad Brains manager), Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat/Fugazi), Al Anderson (The Wailers), among many others.

Exhibition On Screen: The Artist’s Garden American Impressionism (TBC)

Following the popular 'Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse' comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism.

American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
