FEAST Film – Thelma & Louise – Sat 5th March

To coincide with International Women’s Day, FEAST Film Nights in association with The Portico Gallery presents…. Thelma & Louise (PG)

This iconic feminist road movie. 25 years on, the film still stands alone in this genre, something that is both a credit to the film itself – and also depressing in that so few similar movies were made in its wake.

“Meek” housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar. Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt) and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed.

7.30pm  Doors open
8.00pm  Thelma & Louise screening

Feast Film — Diva (1981) & short films – Sat 23rd January 2016

The Portico Gallery in association with FEAST Films presents…..

A 35th anniversary screening of Jean-Jacques Beineix’s French arthouse classic Diva. Police corruption, murder, bootlegging, philosophy and opera are all thrown into the mix to create this stylish Parisian thriller.

Very much a film of its time, Diva set the tone for a new era of French cinema, the “cinema du look” with emphasis on image, art direction and mise en scene. With Diva the result is an exciting movie and a visual treat.

Feast Film — Orphee , Sat 12th December

Peerless visual poetry and dreamlike storytelling represent the legendary Jean Cocteau at the height of his powers….

Jean Cocteau’s update of the Orpheus myth depicts a famous poet (Jean Marais), scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife, Eurydice (Marie Déa), and a mysterious princess (Maria Casarès). Seeking inspiration, the poet follows the princess from the world of the living to the land of the dead, through Cocteau’s famous mirrored portal. Orpheus’s peerless visual poetry and dreamlike storytelling represent the legendary Cocteau at the height of his powers.

And, as if this wasn’t enough of a feast, Alex Paterson (of The Orb (and wnbc.london) fame), has put together a brand new soundtrack for the film. This is a one off, unique composition by him and can only be heard at this screening. This really will make it a special event, don’t miss this one..

8.00pm – DJ set from Alex Paterson (The Orb & WNBC.london radio)
9.00pm – Film screening
