Birds Of Passage (15)

From the filmmakers behind the Oscar-nominated EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT comes their latest epic, BIRDS OF PASSAGE, a tale about indigenous traditions and the corrupting forces of wealth and power, set against the backdrop of the Colombian marijuana boom of the 1970s.


A film of both gangsters and spirits, corruption and fratricidal war, this is a thrilling depiction of the origins of the drug trade told through the story of an indigenous Wayuu family’s downfall when greed, passion and honour collide, putting their lives, culture and ancestral traditions at stake.


"Three viewings in, I'm still flabbergasted by the scope and detail of this movie ... and in awe of the way its unique cover version of a crime-doesn't-pay story totally pays off."

2001: A Space Odyssey (U)

Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

Icons of Greek music: Theodorakis, Hadjidakis, Xarhakos

This special event will bring together a quintet of musicians and friends from different bands who share the same passion for these 3 'giants' of Greek music.


The audience will listen to beloved melodies from Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis and Stavros Xarhakos who compossed them for different reasons during almost the same decades. Songs that dressed beautiful poems and coloured movies, that were inspired by political situations or talk about love and passion; some of them dynamic, some nostalgic but all of them meaningful.


If you share the same love for these composers, we hope to see you on 26.05.19 at the ArtHouse to join voices and feelings!

The Isle (15)

1840 and another ship crashes on the rocks of an almost deserted island in Scotland. Three sailors survive the wreck and make it to shore where the few locals take them in as they wait for the mainland boat to come for them. But the sailors' survival story has only just started as they uncover the strange past of the once vibrant island.


"Superbly shot, exquisitely paced and genuinely compelling and surprising - indeed astonishing...The Isle is the kind of cinema that is getting far too rare."

Stephen Fry


"...a taut, slow-burner of a horror piece that lights the senses on fire in all the right ways. Conleth Hill, Alex Hassell and Tori (Butler-Hart) really bring the terror of The Isle to life."

THE MODERN JUNGLE (La Selva Negra) is a portrait of globalization filtered through the  fever dream of its main character – a Mexican shaman, don Juan – who falls under the spell  of a pyramid-scheme-marketed nutritional supplement. Juan’s neighbor Carmen lives  simply, in harmony with the land her martyred husband paid for with his life. This film  documents their struggles and encounters with outside forces: from capitalism and  commodity fetish, to the culture of cinema, and the directors of this film. Five years in the making, THE MODERN JUNGLE is an intimate document of two people and their Zoque culture, yet simultaneously a story about consumerism, modernity and monoculture.

The Yukon Assignment (PG)

The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can sometimes bring us together, irrespective of age.  


Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children is fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.   The film leaves the audience wanting to call their loved ones, dream big, and dare to believe.

As the passage of time and circumstance leave their lives hanging in a fragile balance, the couple yearn for their long-absent son to return home from the city.
