In an acclaimed debut, Gideon Koppel's film is set in rural mid-Wales where he grew up and follows a year in the life of villagers. A small story but testament to the declining farm community, its values and practices. It is an observation piece, quiet and in its quiet, poignant and unnerving as a real document of a community at odds with the impact of industrialisation and social harmony.
Through his own cinematography and unintrusive filming Koppel emphasises the importance of landscape, both to the story and the community, and the imagery is hauntingly accompanied by a soundtrack from Aphex Twin, marking the first time Richard James has approved his music for an entire feature soundtrack.
A surprising and beautiful film that is a story of our time.
The watching-with-baby screenings are for parents/carers with young babies (up to 1 year) to enjoy a movie in the company of other parents and their
offspring. We follow the weekly film program so you don't loose out on the latest blockbusters, foreign language films and classic favourites. The Cube provides an area for prams, baby changing facilities, lowered movie volume and extra lighting in the auditorium.
There will always be a friendly Front of House on hand to help.
