1. The Go Master

Date & Time: 18 April @ 8pm
Directed by: Tian Zhuangzhuang
Duration: 106 minutes
Type: Colour
Origin: China
Year: 2005

The Go Master is based on the true life story of a Chinese prodigy who became the undisputed master of the ancient Japanese board game of Go. His name was Wu Qingyan. Go, a game which requires intense stamina and intellect was developed in ancient China, but found a new home in post-Meiji Japan. Wu overturned the established traditions and strategies of this ancient game, gaining multitudes of fans and enemies along the way.

2. Pickpocket

Date & Time: 19 April @ 8pm
Directed by: Robert Bresson
Duration: 76 minutes
Type: Black & White
Origin: France
Year: 1959

A tale of crime and redemption follows Michel, a young pickpocket who spends his days working the streets, subways and train stations of Paris. As his compulsion grows, so does his fear that his luck is about to run out. Bresson’s work is unique in cinema, his films rigorously avoid theatrical elements. His dislike of acting and of plots make films such as “Diary of a Country Priest”(1951), “Balthazar” (1966), “A Man Escaped” (1956) and “Pickpocket” (1959) uncompromizing visual explorations of existential truth. Bresson has only made ten films in a career that spans over forty years, yet his reputation as one of the great artists of cinema is secure.
Starring Martin LaSalle, Marika Green, Jean Pelegri, Pierre Leymarie, Dolly Scal & Henri Kassagi.


3. Juliet of the Spirits

Date & Time: 25 April @ 8pm
Directed by: Federico Fellini
Duration: 145 minutes

A bored middle-aged woman finds she can conjure up spirits who lead her into a world of sensual gratification. A companion piece to 8 and a 1/2, the other side of the coin.
There is not much else to say about Fellini, other than the fact that he won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film four times.
Starring Giulietta Masina, Sandra Milo, Mario Pisu, Valentina Cortese & Valeska Gert.

“Not to have seen the cinema of Ray means existing in the world without seeing the sun or the moon”
–Akira Kurosawa
