AROUND THE WORLD ON THE BIG SCREEN IN KINGSBRIDGE
Kino's 2019 Autumn Season is now underway with an exciting programme, including two films from Africa (which has been sadly under-represented in previous seasons), brand new films from South Korea, Argentina and China, a black and white classic from Sweden and a comedy gem for our pre-Christmas screening. Click here to see the full season.
Our next film was voted one of Sight & Sound’s best films of 2018. Jia Zhangke's Ash Is Purest White explores the masculine codes of his country in this ravishing, self-referential film about a woman in love with a gangster. With a three-part structure, the film begins by following the quick-witted Qiao (Zhao Tao) and her mobster boyfriend Bin (Liao Fan) as they protect their turf against rivals in post-industrial Datong, before expanding into an epic narrative of how abstract forces shape individual lives and as a record of 21st-century China and its warp-speed transformations.
We show this on Sunday 27 October.
We show our films at Dodbrooke Parish Hall (at the north end of Church Street). Click here to see the Hall location. The Hall has recently been refurbished, has parking in the school car park behind the Church, has two toilets and a smart kitchen from which we can continue to offer you our excellent refreshment facilities and Juanita's delicious cake!
