Curtain up for film society's latest season
PUBLISHED: 06:30 19 August 2015
Budleigh Film Society is preparing to begin its eighth season, offering another eclectic mix of cinematic treats.
As usual, the committee has spent the off-season viewing films and agonising over which ones to include in the selection of nine to form a balanced programme.
The season opens on September 23 with Human Capital, a thriller from Italy about a car accident seen from three different perspectives.
An unusual Polish film, Ida, is the choice for October. It won special praise for its cinematography and an Oscar for its director.
Several French films will be shown, including Cycling with Moliere, My Old Lady, and A Bottle in the Gaza Sea.
The season also includes Japanese film Like Father Like Son, British film Pride, based on historical fact and set in 1984, and Diplomacy, a tense psychological drama. The final film, Au Revoir les Enfants, is described as Louis Malle’s most beautiful movie and his last great one.
The society’s screenings take place at the Public Hall.
Brochures with application forms are available at Budleigh Salterton Library and at Orchard Wholefoods in the High Street. Alternatively, visit www.budleighfilm.org.uk.
