Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
We screen films to members and visitors on the first Thursday of the month from September to June at The Space – which is the new building above the library. Doors open at 7.15 for a 7.45 start. We can get quite busy and (so far) seats are on a first come first served basis, there’s no booking in advance it’s simply pay on the door (£5).
We’ve not had to turn people away yet but we’ve been very close and the numbers are rising so getting in early isn’t a bad idea.
If you’d like to receive reminders of the next film via email please join the mailing list – we only send a quick email out on the Monday before the film with details and any relevant message (like snow warnings!).
We’ve set up a simple bar (run by us) that is only set to cover costs, any suggestions to improve the service greatly received! Hope to see you there and hope you enjoy the film!
Our next film is:
4th April 2019
A couple fail to reconcile after their son, Alyosha, overhears a horrible argument in their cramped flat, and goes missing. Has he been kidnapped? Is the shy, unhappy 12 year old boy the basic cause or symptom of the collapse of his parents’ relationship? As the search fails to deliver results, a portrait of an entire society in crisis emerges. Loveless is a stark, mysterious and terrifying story of spiritual catastrophe: a drama with the ostensible form of a procedural crime thriller, its hypnotic intensity and unbearable ambiguity are compellingly maintained until the very end. This is a story of contemporary Russia, whose people are at the mercy of implacable forces in a loveless world, without the full means to support human life.
Loveless, which is like Ingmar Bergman’s “Scenes from a Marriage” dipped in battery acid, is a master class in melancholy.
