Jimmy Stewart plays George Bailey, a forlorn small-town banker who, while considering suicide, meets Clarence (Henry Travers), an angel in training. Clarence shows George what life would be like if he had never been born, and through this George is able to realize how valuable one person’s life can be. This film, directed by Frank Capra, has become a Christmas classic. It is a reminder that life may not be what we expected but it is still sweet and rich.

Fletton Way, Glapthorn Rd, Oundle, PE8 4JA

Narrator: Willem Dafoe

Description: Robert MacFarlane

Director: Jennifer Peedom

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 13min

Collated from more than 2,000 hours of footage shot in 15 countries, Mountain is a 70-minute white-knuckle ride: a safari into the sublime, a vertiginous voyage to the top of the world providing astonishing vision of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers. With accompanying music from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the film’s adrenaline-charged footage reveals mountains as places of stately splendour and perilous exposure, including Alex Honnold’s heart stopping free climbing and Danny Macaskill’s stunning bike ride over the Cuillin Ridge on Skye. Director Peedom seeks succesfully to convey the allure of mountains, and the increasing pressures that they face.

The Climate Majority; Apathy & Action in an Age of Nationalism

David Hone:
Putting the Genie Back; Solving the Climate and Energy Dilemma

Thursday, 18th January 2018, 7:45pm

The Great Hall, Oundle School
New Street, Oundle, PE8 4GH

Leo Barasi is a freelance consultant on climate change policy and campaigns. He writes regularly for the Guardian, New Statesman, openDemocracy and ClimateHome. He was awarded the 2014 Sustainable Futures Prize by Birkbeck, University of London.

Leo Barasi’s important and timely book, The Climate Majority, is not about the climate deniers or the climate activists. It’s about apathy, about those who don’t talk about global warming, the billions of people who have heard plenty about climate change and acknowledge there’s a problem, but who are just not engaged enough to stimulate the change required to stop it.

Preventing extreme climate change is one of the hardest tasks humans have ever faced. Rising nationalism and the US withdrawal from the Paris Agreement are blows to progress. However only by influencing those who have, so far, remained outside the debate, will we have a chance of building a climate majority to back the measures required to avoid disaster.

David Hone works as Chief Climate Change Adviser at Shell International Ltd. and has been involved with the climate change issue for 15 years. He is a board member for the International Emissions Trading Association, (IETA), and Washington-based think tank Centre for Climate and Energy Solutions, (C2ES).

David questions whether it is realistic to believe that workable solutions can be found to cover the full range of services delivered by fossil fuels, and whether warming can be limited to the agreed global goals of the Paris Agreement. Putting the Genie Back explores the climate issue from its very beginnings through to the end of the 21st Century and looks in depth at the transition challenge we collectively face.

Alison Weir Talk: Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession

Friday, 26th January 2018

19:30 - 21:00

In this richly illustrated talk, bestselling historian and novelist, Alison Weir, will shed light on the relationship between Katharine of Aragon and her rival for the King’s affection, Anne Boleyn. Fresh from the sophisticated palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws the attention at the English court and embraces the play of courtly love. But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game. She has a spirit worthy of a crown - and a crown is what she seeks. And so she embarks on her perilous course, which will plunge a kingdom into turmoil.

Alison Weir weaves new research and theories into the dark, powerful tale of Henry VIII’s second wife - a woman ahead of her time, who dared to question traditional concepts of femininity, and whose ambition drove her to gamble with the fickle nature of a dangerous king.

There will be a book stall and at the end of the evening Alison will be signing copies of her two recent novels, Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession, and Katherine of Aragon, the True Queen.

Tickets: £12 adults, £10 under 16s (including a glass of wine or soft drink).

6.00pm A Tudor-style Pottage & Ale Supper

The 13th century Knights’ Chamber is the atmospheric setting for a supper before Alison Weir’s talk. It will be accompanied by re-enactors and attendants in Tudor costume.

TICKETS: £48 per person, includes drinks and a reserved seat for the 7.30pm talk by Alison Weir. £36 for supper only. For more information or to book visit www.peterborough-cathedral.org.uk/143/section.aspx/142/pottage2018 or call 01733 452336.

Sunday, 28th January, 7.30pm

THE STAHL THEATRE
West St, PE8 4EJ, Oundle

Cast: Mark Rylance, Fionn Whitehead, Kenneth Branagh

Director: Christopher Nolan

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 46min

In May 1940 Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. By the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers had been safely evacuated.

Writer/director Nolan has crafted a film that will arguably become the definitive cinematic depiction of this remarkable chapter of history. With its thunderous sound design, Dunkirk assaults the senses, yet minimal dialogue means that large sections of the film play like classic silent cinema.

‘It’s an utterly immersive experience that fulfils Nolan’s promise of creating "virtual reality without the goggles"...see it you must.’Mark Kermode, Observer

Release: 2017

Shot in black-and-white, there is a steady stream of great laughs in Sally Potter’s state-of-the-nation comedy, set at a middle-class London dinner party given to celebrate the appointment of Janet (Scott Thomas) as Shadow Health Minister. Janet’s husband (Spall) also has dramatic (medical) news to share, and as the sophisticated evening starts to unravel, a night that began with champagne turns to arguments and a pointed gun.

Director: Sean McAllister

Release: 2015

Runtime: 1hr 16min

Awarded the Grand Jury Prize at Sheffield Doc/Fest, this searing film is an intimate portrait of love and the loss of a homeland. Amar meets Raghda in a Syrian prison cell, where they communicate through a pinhole in the wall and fall in love. This film helps us to understand why people are literally dying for change in the Arab world. When the pair achieve political asylum in the French town of Albi, their travails are not over, as the separation from Syria leads to increasing domestic dissonance and Raghda’s mental universe unravels.

This film should be seen in conjunction with Ai Wei Wei’s all-encompassing tragedy of the global refugee crisis, Human Flow, to be shown at St Peter’s Church, Oundle on the following Saturday, 24th February.

Found in the Fields

Friday, 23rd February 2018, 7:45pm

St Peter's Church
Church Street, Oundle, PE8 4AL

Carry Akroyd is a locally based painter and printmaker whose images examine the relationship between wildlife and the farming landscape, but are just as much about colour and composition.

This event will celebrate Carry’s work and the publication of her second book. At its core is her lithograph series 'Found in the Fields', sixteen images incorporating words from the poet John Clare, a recurring theme in her work. In her painting and printmaking Carry portrays landscapes both familiar and re-imagined, finding wildlife and nature around the margins of agribusiness. Throughout, her enjoyment of colour and sense of composition combine productively with her eye for bird life and botany. This book brings together the persistent threads in her work over a period of years, revealing through the range of media employed all the motifs that evolve as her own personal symbolism for change and continuity in the countryside.

Her work has been displayed in solo show and mixed shows around the country and she displays annually at the Natural Eye Exhibition in London with the Society of Wildlife Artists. "Found in the Fields" is a series of lithographs launched at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh during the 2011 Festival, and has since toured numerous venues and will be coming to the Yarrow Gallery in Oundle in March 2018.

Come along and find out more about this talented and dynamic artist in our midst.

Director: Claude Barras

Cast: Gaspard Schlatter, Sixtine Murat, Paulin Jaccoud

Release: 2016

Runtime 1hr 6min

This multi-award winning, stop-motion animation gained international critical acclaim and narrowly missed out on the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. A gentle, tender film, it tells the story of a 9-year-old boy (Courgette) who is removed from his unhappy home life and taken to an orphanage. At first he struggles to find his place in the strange and at times hostile environment, but as friendships develop with other children they come to terms with the unkind cards they have been dealt and their new home becomes a place of shared experience, refuge and freedom.

‘Think of ‘My Life as a Courgette’ as less of a children’s film than a film about childhood which children can watch, and you’ll have some idea of the quietly extraordinary tone it manages to strike.’ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Margot Robbie, Kelly Macdonald

Director: Simon Curtis

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 45min

This is the story of before and after Winnie the Pooh. It shows how the books came to be written, what happened next, and the consequences for young Billy, the real life Christopher Robin. Domnhall Gleeson plays AA Milne, back home from the trenches in 1916, damaged, and determined to write a book about the war. How that plan turned into the Winnie books is the remarkable subject of this heart warming movie. If you are a fan of the bear then don’t worry, the people behind this movie understand the magic and, somehow, bring it alive on screen.

‘With its bittersweet interweaving of fact and fantasy, youthful innocence and adult trauma, this tale of the creation of a children’s classic could have been called Saving Mr Milne.’ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Mozart's D minor piano concerto is one of contrasts. The drama of the first movement is followed by the sublime Romance and then the lively Finale. The programme ends with the music Arthur Bliss wrote at the height of his powers in 1937 for his ballet ‘Checkmate’, which depicts the moves of Bishops, Knights, Kings and Queens as they clash in a dramatic game of chess.

Argentinian Tango has become a universal phenomenom over the last hundred years, with its mix of rhythm and sensuality. This film looks at this extraordinary dance through the story of two of its greatest protagonists: Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years, until a painful separation tore them apart. In German Kral’s Buena Vista style study, the virtuosos reunite to tell their story to young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

Arriving in Istanbul for a relaxing holiday, the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot receives a telegram summoning him back to London. Soon the vigilant detective finds himself on board the luxurious Orient Express, sharing a carriage with an eclectic assortment of first-class travellers and an invisible murderer who walks unnoticed among them. When a sudden massive avalanche blocks the tracks, trapping the passengers on board the train, the gruesome murder of a commuter in his cabin forces Poirot to solve a conundrum where everyone is a suspect. Classic Agatha Christie.

'Branagh clearly has fun with the eccentric nature of the Poirot character, whose gift of insight is a blessing when it comes to solving crimes but a curse in its effects on his daily existence.' Brian Lowry, CNN.com
