THE PARTY (15)
Sunday, 18th February, 7.30pm
THE STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ
Cast: Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall, Kristin Scott Thomas
Director: Sally Potter
Runtime: 1hr 11min
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.
‘...plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punch line twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
TICKET UPDATE 16th February:
There are still tickets available for sale on the night at the Stahl.
A SYRIAN LOVE STORY (12A)
Wednesday, 21st February, 7.30pm (New start time!)
Fletton Way, Glapthorn Rd, Oundle, PE8 4JA
Director: Sean McAllister
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.
‘Sean McAllister’s intimate, achingly poignant documentary couldn’t be more timely.’ The Times

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.

Ai Weiwei's Human Flow
Saturday, 24th February, 6:30pm
St Peter's Church, Oundle
Tickets: £5 (price includes refreshments)
Proceeds from the film go to Hope Into Action
Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.
Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey.
Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?
Directed by Ai Weiwei, Human Flow is produced by Ai Weiwei, Chin-Chin Yap and Heino Deckert and executive produced by Andrew Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media.
