You are invited to join us for screenings of films as part of The Fabulous Picture Show, where our audience attend the screenings and discussions of forthcoming cutting-edge feature films from around the world.
On Friday 16th July 2010, we will be joined by actor William Shimmel for a screening of 'Certified Copy'.
‘This is the story of a meeting between one man (William Shimmel) and one woman (Juliette Binoche) in a small Italian village in southern Tuscany.
The man is a British author who has just finished giving a lecture at a conference. The woman, originally from France, owns a local art gallery. This is a common story that could happen to anyone, anywhere.
Iran’s Abbas Kiarostami is one of the giants of modern cinema: an inveterate experimenter with cinematic form whose films also pack an emotional wallop. Certified Copy, despite its attractive stars and lush setting, despite being perhaps Kiarostami’s most entertaining and accessible feature yet, is a tantalising intellectual puzzle that bears the classic stamp of this master.
After the screening, audience members will have the chance to discuss the film with actor William Shimmel, in a Q & A hosted by journalist Amanda Palmer.
