Oundle Cinema dOCs+ series present
The Congo Tribunal
Wednesday, 19th September, at 7:30pm

Director: Milo Rau
Runtime: 100 mins
The Congo – a country as large as Europe where, for more than 20 years, a forgotten war has been occurring that has claimed six million lives. It is a war no longer based on ethnic difference, rather for economic dominance in pursuit of high-tech raw materials – gold and coltan: raw materials essential for our global communications industry. This powerful and condemnatory film charts the fate of individuals and communities, as well as the role of governments, in prolonging this tragedy. It seeks the truth - and finds it.

Author Andrew Bibby sets out to cycle from the English Channel to the Humber, following the great stone belt of ‘cotswold’ limestone which has left its mark so powerfully on the countryside.
This is a journey of discovery into a very special landscape, and the author draws on themes as varied as social history, literature, land usage, agriculture and rural life today to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that shape the land. This wonderful book celebrates the beauty of this area of England, but also does very much more. Thoughtful, well-informed, sometimes provocative, Andrew goes beyond the superficial to reveal a Middle England which is considerably more complex than many might imagine. Includes chapters on Wellingborough, Corby and Oundle, and Stamford.
‘lf you asked your friends what route they'd recommend for an eight-day ride in the UK, pedalling the 430 miles from the Dorset coast to the Humber would probably not feature in their suggestions. That's one of the fascinating aspects of Andrew Bibby's journey to try to discover 'middle England', Duncan Dollimore, Cycle Magazine, (Book of the Month Feb/March 2018)

Conductor Paul Hilliam
Violin Freya Goldmark
Lutoslawski Little Suite
Bruch Violin Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No.1
The first concert in the Rutland Sinfonia’s 42nd season is a short piece by a composer new to the Orchestra. Lutoslawski’s ‘Little Suite’ is only 11 minutes long, but its rhythmic drive and strong folk-based thematic material will leave you wanting to hear more from Poland’s outstanding 20th century composer.
We then welcome back Freya Goldmark to play Bruch’s popular Violin Concerto, dating from 1866.
The concert ends with Sibelius’ First Symphony, completed in 1900. An 1897 performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.6 ‘Pathetique’ in Helsinki had an influence on Sibelius, but the mature Sibelius is already powerfully evident in this early work. "His symphony, a work full of unrestrained strength, full of passionate vivacity and astonishing audacity is – to state the matter plainly – a remarkable work, one that steps out on new paths, or rather rushes forward like an intoxicated god," wrote Ferdinand Pfol, the famous German music critic, on hearing it.
Oundle Cinema presents
Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (15)
Sunday, 23rd September, at 7:30pm
Stahl Theatre, Oundle
West Street, PE8 4EJ
Tickets: £6.50 adult / £3 U18
Cast: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Kenneth Cranham
Director: Paul McGuigan
Runtime: 1hr 45min
The Oscar-winning Hollywood star Gloria Grahame really did go to Liverpool at a desperate stage in her life; truth is stranger than fiction. Annette Bening as Gloria Grahame and Jamie Bell (all grown up since Billy Elliott) as the struggling young actor Peter bring this warm and heart-breaking story to life. Julie Walters and Kenneth Cranham are Peter’s down-to-earth Liverpudlian parents, astonished, sceptical, coping.
‘The movie makes the right decision to focus on the humanity and compassion. It’s a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
