Wednesday Cafe & Cine November

Welcome everyone,

The nights may be drawing in but here at the cosy library house we shall be having a cafe! With lovely skipped vegan food from 6.30 to 8.00. Come along for some chat and food.

Then we will be showing our film from the November cinema program:

WIth A wOrlD liKe tHis wE sHouLdn’T be hAviNg QuiEt niGhtS iN!

4.NOV V for Vendetta (2005) by James McTeigue
The futuristic tale unfolds in a Great Britain that’s a fascist state. A freedom fighter known as V uses terrorist tactics to fight the oppressive society.

11.NOV Citizen Cane (1941) by Orson Welles
a timeless movie. it is a reflection of old and modern time and the power the media represent. “Kane goes from an idealistic journalist to a powerful mogul able to manipulate history through his media empire”

18.NOV 1984 (1956) by Michael Anderson
George Orwell’s novel of a totalitarian future society. In a futuristic, state-run society controlled by “Big Brother” in which love is outlawed, employee of the state Winston Smith falls for Julia, and is tortured and brainwashed for his crime.

25.NOV Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1974) by Pier Paolo Pasolini an adaptation of one of DeSade’s most depraved works channeled through the horrifying excesses of the Second World War with the Fascist ruling classes as its (authentically vile) villains, SALO also contains a lot of contemporary criticism, it is a perfect film metaphor, it shakes us out of our casual attitude to film violence. this film could be remade many times. whether it be pol pot in cambodia, stalin in russia, or america in vietnam, nicaragua, guetemala, there are a thousand salos waiting to be filmed.
