Le bonheur + Forage-along

Join us for (possibly) the world’s second ever forage-along! 

Agnès Varda’s Le bonheur is a Technicolor dream that hides a kaleidoscopic nightmare – or, as Varda describes it, it is ‘a summer peach with its perfect colours, and inside there’s a worm’. The film’s tale of bliss and betrayal has confused and divided critics since its release. 

Worms won’t be joining us for the screening, but The Nottingham Forager will. In her expert company we will sample foraged delights inspired by the film and hear her reflections on the changes she has noticed along Nottinghamshire rivers. 

 This event is part of the ‘Water and World Cinema’ film season dedicated to local, national, and international bodies of water and inspired by the intense reporting on these waterways in the UK press. The film season is generously sponsored by NTU’s Institute for Knowledge Exchange.

Bacurau (18)

Following the death of its matriarch, Carmelita, the fictional village of Bacurau is subjected to a series of mysterious goings-on, including apparently disappearing from the face of the earth. But is their source supernatural or something far more mundane but no less destructive? Community action proves the answer to this riddle. 

For this screening we're thrilled to be joined by Adam Pickering, co-founder of Green Hustle, who'll be discussing the power of community action.

X Trillion (PG)

"We are about as far away from civilisation as one can get. Yet here, all around us, is evidence of our daily lives on land. Our choices. Our purchases. This is your old toothbrush, my empty shampoo bottle, the lid to his coffee cup."
– Michelle Byle, packaging designer ​​

There are thought to be 500 times more pieces of microplastic in the sea than stars in our galaxy. And every tiny fragment of plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has come from somewhere. Some things are so vast, complex and far away that they seem impossible to grasp, and harder to recount. But change is wrought through personal testimony, and heroes are made at sea. X Trillion takes us aboard with the all-women crew of eXXpedition North Pacific as they sail out of their comfort zone and into the unknown, becoming witnesses to a global problem and emerging transformed.

The Soul of a Cyclist

A documentary about cycling and those who participate in it, from South to Center Portugal, to the UK, France and Spain.
'A Alma de um Ciclista' by Nuno Tavares aims to understand the passion of cyclists when it comes to this hobby and, most particularly, to old-school bikes.

Through a group of "classic" cyclists and their common interest in vintage bicycles, we'll rediscover the values that are being lost in our modern society, such as the importance of friendship, ecology, valuing the old, and other important premises to achieve a happier, simpler and more fulfilled life with what really matters. As in life, in this documentary, bicycles transport us in our discovery, in our reflection.
