Refugee Week: Limbo 
UK 2020, PG, 103 mins, drama, comedy

A BAFTA nominee for Outstanding British film, Limbo is a 2020 comedy/drama that centres on four asylum seekers who are staying on a remote island in Scotland, and taking cultural awareness classes, while awaiting the processing of their refugee claims.

‘A gorgeous tragicomic take on the refugee experience’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

 

Ben Sharrock expertly juxtaposes the limitless landscape of the Scottish islands with the curtailed options of oud-playing new arrival Omar, a Syrian migrant. It is a masterpiece of atmospheric film-making, with a superb original soundtrack created by the St Leonards based composer Hutch Demouilpied who will present a short introduction to the 7.30pm screening.

Xuefei Yang (China)
An Evening of Classical Guitar: The music from China, Spain, Brazil, UK & Argentina

Xuefei Yang is an outstanding classical guitarist from China. Born in Beijing, she became the first guitarist to enter a music school in China, and obtain a Bachelor of Arts from the Central Conservatory of Music. She was the first guitarist from China to study in the United Kingdom and the first guitarist to receive an international scholarship from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music for her postgraduate programme at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Xuefei  tours extensively in the UK, USA, Europe and China, performing the traditional and modern guitar repertoire (Falla, Barrios, Albéniz, Dyens, York), and a wide range of other classical composers (Debussy, Elgar, Schubert, Paganini, Britten, Mussorgsky), as well as  Chinese music. 

‘In Xiaoyong Chen’s Static and Rotation she turned sweet, chiming overtones into a wild sound like a hailstorm on a window. And, playing with similar brilliance in Robert Saxton’s Night Dance, Timothy Salter’s Equipoise premiere and Britten's Nocturnal after John Dowland, Yang’s easeful virtuosity won the day.' 

Matthew Connolly, The Times

Xuefei has made many acclaimed recordings for major labels. Her first received a gold disc & her second was selected as ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone magazine. Her recent releases include a solo album “Colours of Brazil,” (Decca Classics) and “Songs from our Ancestors”.

She has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and the BBC Proms

Classic FM named Xuefei Yang as one of the 100 top classical musicians of our time.

A critically acclaimed favourite of Bob Harris, BBC, NPR, Rolling Stone and others, White’s previous honours include a year-end Top 10 record pick by the Daily Telegraph.

Stepping out on stage with a guitar over his shoulder and a well-earned confidence in his chest, Robbie can hardly open his mouth without also opening his heart.

The Harder They Come 
Jamaica 1972, 15, 103 mins, drama, crime, music 

A 1972 Jamaican crime film directed by Perry Henzell and starring Jimmy Cliff. The film is most famous for its reggae soundtrack that is said to have "brought reggae to the world". Enormously successful in Jamaica, the film also reached the international market and has been described as "possibly the most influential of Jamaican films and one of the most important films from the Caribbean.

'My character, Ivanhoe Martin, was based on a 1940s Jamaican gangster, Rhyging, whose name struck terror into everybody. To play him, I drew on my experiences of living in Kingston and people I knew. And I loved the bad guys in the movies, which helped, too. The musical part of the storyline was based on me. In those days, producers were really rough guys who controlled the music industry and paid artists very little' Jimmy Cliff, songwriter and actor.

‘The film has a sharp and racy rhythm, in keeping with the syncopated music of the isle, plus an underlying social theme in the guise of a familiar tale’ Variety

Elvis 
US 2022 PG-12 159 mins, musical 

A 2022 biographical musical film directed by Baz Luhrmann, who co-wrote the screenplay with Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce and Jeremy Doner, the film follows the life and career of musician and actor Elvis Presley (Austin Butler) as well as his complex relationship with his manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks).
 
Elvis premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival on May 25, 2022  and was praised  for its direction and Butler's performance.

‘The most impeccably styled and blaringly gaudy thing you'll see all year' The Telegraph

‘Luhrmann's best film since Romeo + Juliet ... The power in the musical numbers is drawn from Butler's turn but also from Luhrmann, who edits with the kind of frenetic rhythms that are almost impossible to resist (feet will tap) ... They are the spine-tingling highlights that make the entire project a must-see movie’ The Times

‘He (Butler) had channeled and embodied my father's heart and soul beautifully. In my humble opinion, his performance is unprecedented and FINALLY done accurately and respectfully’ Lisa Marie Presley
