WFC's March offering will be at the Connaught Studio Cinema.

Date: Monday 19th March
Time: 8.15
Place: Connaught Studio

Loveless is a Russian drama film directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev. (The Return / Leviathan)
This beautifully sculpted film tells the sad tale of a lost boy.

When 11-year-old Alexey goes missing, unnoticed for two days, the estranged parents come together to find him and here commences our journey into the dark corners of the human psyche. Loveless.

The cinematography is effortlessly and subtly masterful, giving us some respite from the achingly desperate story with pallid urban & haunting bucolic landscapes beautifully framed at every turn. Where seemingly inconsequential visual detail early on in the film, later becomes heavily meaningful and poetic.

Zvyagintsev skillfully paces this crippling ordeal of a film, captivating his audience with a compelling unfolding of the drama. Again, Zavaginsev displays a true talent in screenwriting. Especially with his characterisations, never giving us the characters 'on a plate' but instead he reveals their personalities and their flaws bit by bit, through conversations with work colleagues and hairdressers and lovers, so slowly we get to piece these damaged people's lives together over the span of the film itself. Just wonderful.

Loveless opened to critical acclaim and it won the Jury Prize at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Our next screening at Coast is 'THE LOOK OF SILENCE'.

Joshua Oppenheimer's superb companion piece to the equally outstanding and groundbreaking 'THE ACT OF KILLING'.

Monday the 12th of February, doors at 7.30pm, film at 8pm.

A middle-aged Indonesian man, whose brother was brutally murdered in the 1965 purge of communists, confronts the men who carried out the killings. Out of concern for his safety, the man is not fully identified in the film and is credited only as "anonymous," as are many of the film's crew positions. Some shots consist of the man watching (what seems to be) extra footage from The Act of Killing, which includes video of the men who killed his brother. He visits some of the killers and their collaborators—including his uncle—under the pretense of an eye exam.

 "Powerful" - Variety
"Riveting" - Time Out
"stunning masterpiece" - Guardian's film critic Lucy Walker

Co-produced by award winning maverick Werner Herzog with Errol Harris, this film is a must-see documentary of singular clarity and brutal honesty.
