Barn Cinema October 2023
Dark themes – but hope shines through!
This month Timothy Spall brings us Bolan’s Shoes, unpacking the childhood trauma that follows a bus crash, (and the power of uplifting music); Kenneth Branagh returns with A Haunting in Venice, his third – and spookiest – Poirot mystery as he debunks a séance; And Then Come the Nightjars explores the culling of a herd of cows during the Foot and Mouth Epidemic of 2001; Oppenheimer details the origins of the Atom bomb; and Sound of Freedom calls us to fight child trafficking. Are these films grim viewing? Sometimes, but hope shines through!
There are also upbeat tales: Chevalier is based on the true story of the son of a slave and a plantation owner who wins over French society by being an accomplished violinist, composer and fencer; Theater Camp is a Mockumentary of how some eccentric American teachers and peculiar children overcome the odds to put on a musical, despite their director falling into a coma; and AngelHeaded Hipster is a documentary about making an album of covers celebrating the life of Marc Bolan, with archive footage so you can Get it On with The Jeepster like in 1971.
Finally, to celebrate 100 years of Disney there are some classic animations; the original Toy Story, The Princess and The Frog, and a sing-along of Frozen. Go on ‘Let it Go!
