Kennington Bioscope Silent Film Weekend June 1st & 2nd
Kennington Bioscope presents; City Girl (1930), Wednesday 29th May @ 7:30pm
Three years after his masterpiece, Sunrise(1927) director F.W. Murnau made his last film for the Fox Corporation, City Girl. The film is unjustly neglected and rarely shown.
During a brief trip to Chicago, an innocent farmer’s son Lem (Charles Farrell) falls for and weds Kate (Mary Duncan), a hard-bitten but lonely waitress. They fall in love, marry, and return to the farm in Minnesota. Conflict and adversity follows. Will their love survive?
Tenderly romantic and tough-minded in equal measure, City Girl is one of cinema’s great pastorals, featuring some of the most delicate performances Murnau ever filmed and influencing directors such as Terrence Malick and Jean Vigo.
Live accompaniment from Meg Morley for City Girl, and Colin Sell for the first half.
Silent film with intertitles which may be suitable for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Tickets are £5, but seats are limited. To avoid disappointment, please request an invitation using the email kenbioscope@gmail.com.
Kennington Talkies presents; Stranded (1935), Thursday 30th May @ 7:30pm
Kennington Talkies continues the Kay Francis season with Stranded, a 1935 drama, directed by Frank Borzage and co-starring George Brent and Patricia Ellis.
A construction engineer (Brent) falls in love with a social worker (Francis), while fighting a protection racketeer trying to derail the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Faraday Labour Party screening of Where To Invade Next (2015), Friday 31st May @ 2:30pm
Faraday Branch Labour Party is pleased to present Where to Invade Next (2015), directed by Michael Moore.
To show what the USA can learn from rest of the world, director Michael Moore playfully visits various nations in Europe and Africa as a one-man “invader” to take their ideas and practices for America. Whether it is Italy with its generous vacation time allotments, France with its gourmet school lunches, Germany with its industrial policy, Norway and its prison system, Tunisia and its strongly progressive women’s policy, or Iceland and its strong female presence in government and business among others, Michael Moore discovers there is much that American should emulate.

Tickets are £6 (+98p booking fee), and may be purchased from Eventbrite.
