Zulu screens Sun 22 May as part of Hollywood Blacklistees in Europe: a season of films from American cinema's exiled generation.

Seen by many as a classic British film, Zulu depicts the 1879 battle of Rorke’s Drift which took place during the Anglo-Zulu war. Cy Endfield was blacklisted from Hollywood and later worked extensively in the UK, whilst star and producer Stanley Baker had also collaborated with another blacklistee Joseph Losey.

Today, the film raises questions regarding the representation of the Zulu nation and the success of the film’s perceived anti-imperialist intentions.

🎥🎞️ 35MM PRINT FILM LOVERS REJOICE!🎞️🎥

Spanish classic Calle Mayor screens in our cinemas Thu 19 May, as part of our Hollywood Blacklistees in Europe season. A super rare screening that's not to be missed!

Isabel is an unmarried woman in a provincial Spanish town. A group of bored local men cruelly plot to embarrass her by feigning a romantic interest. Their prank is linked to the wider class-based social structures of Spain at the time by writer-director Juan Antonio Bardem (uncle of Javier Bardem).

Isabel is played with great subtlety by Betsy Blair, who at the time was a victim of the #hollywoodblacklist. She only agreed to travel to Spain to make Calle Mayor once she had been informed of Bardem’s political opposition to General Franco. Today, the film is considered a classic of Spanish cinema.

“Its cinematic prowess is not only a reflection of the director’s technical expertise
and his insight into capturing their soulful, elegiac music, but also a testament to the
depth of the relationship built between subject and framer.”
Rafaela Sales Ross, @theplaylistnation

BEHIND THE SCENES | A couple of weeks ago, we caught up with RashDash Theatre during their rehearsals for their exciting brand-new show, Oh Mother, that poses radical and poignant questions about care.

"We're drawing on our own experiences, but also trying to make something that feels relevant to the experiences people might be having who are taking care of people or thinking about starting a family.

The show is made up of fragments of stories that are interrupted and cut off, woven together to create the dreamlike world you can live in when you are taking care of someone, at the beginning or the end of their life. We’re exploring how our relationships change when we take care of someone who depends on us. How it can change our relationships with ourselves, our bodies, our friends, our partners, our work…

The stories of three people are interspersed with sequences of movement and music that adventure into Epic Domestic, Rage, Gender, Bonding and Attachment…" - Abbi Greenland
