Viceroy's House (12A)

Drama | History

Dir. Gurinder Chadha, UK/India, 2017, 106 mins

Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville

Directed by Gurinder Chadha, VICEROY’S HOUSE tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India.

Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (played by Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.

The film’s story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite – Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi – converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.

The film is deeply personal to the director Gurinder Chadha, whose own family was caught up in the tragic events that unfolded as British rule came to an end. Her film examines those events through the prism of a marriage – that of Dickie and Edwina Mountbatten – and a romance – that between a young Hindu servant, Jeet (Manish Dayal), and his intended Muslim bride, Aalia (Huma Qureshi). The young lovers find themselves caught up in the seismic end of Empire, in conflict with the Mountbattens and with their own communities, but never ever giving up hope…

Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (PG)

Documentary | Music

Dir. D.A. Pennebaker, UK, 1973, 90 mins

Cast: David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder

D.A. Pennebaker’s concert film “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars” will screen in movie theaters across Europe on March 7 as part of a celebration of the life and music of David Bowie.

The evening, courtesy of event cinema company CinEvents, will include a new film produced by Mojo magazine exclusively for this screening. Picturehouse Entertainment is partnering with CinEvents for distribution of the event.

The film will be screened in multiplex and independent cinemas across the U.K. as well as selected countries across Europe, including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Germany, France and Spain.

The documentary/concert film captures Bowie and his band, The Spiders From Mars, performing at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on July 3, 1973. It was at this concert that Bowie made a sudden announcement, shocking fans and media alike by stating “it’s the last show we’ll ever do.”

Rather than marking his withdrawal from music, his declaration signaled the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust persona, and the end of a hugely influential chapter in Bowie’s own story.

In addition to the concert movie, the evening will include a new film produced by Mojo magazine exclusively for these screenings. This film will feature Mojo’s editor-in-chief Phil Alexander in conversation with The Spiders From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey, whose memoir “My Life With Bowie: Spider From Mars” has just been published by Sidgwick & Jackson. As well as re-living that fateful night in 1973, Woody will provide further insight into what he describes as “the adventure of a lifetime.”

CinEvents is working with Mojo magazine — Britain’s biggest-selling music magazine, which Bowie guest edited in 2002 — to “further enhance the cinema-going experience.” Every attendee will receive a special edition of the magazine, which will document the Ziggy-era, and will also feature an exclusive David Bowie/Spiders From Mars Collectors’ Cover.

Tickets for the screenings are on sale now and customers will be able to find their closest participating cinemas via www.ziggystardust-cinevents.com.

Creeping Garden, The (E)

Documentary

Dirs. Tim Grabham, Jasper Sharp, UK, 2014, 81 mins

Cast: Mark Pagnell, Heather Barnett, Bryn Dentinger

A real life science fiction movie exploring a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined.

The Creeping Garden is a multi award winning feature length creative documentary exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould.

The slime mould is being used to explore biological-inspired design, emergence theory, unconventional computing and robot controllers, much of which borders on the world of science fiction.

But as well as exploring the slime mould in the lab, the film also travels out into the wild, hunting for the organisms in their natural habitat.

Co-directed by artist film-maker Tim Grabham and writer and film curator Jasper Sharp, the film follows in the unconventional footsteps of Grabham’s previous feature ‘KanZeOn’ and Sharps fascination with the extended world of mycology.

With an original soundtrack composed by celebrated musician and producer Jim O’Rourke (Sonic Youth, Werner Herzog’s ‘Grizzly Man’) this is a unique exploration into a hitherto untapped subject matter, observing and immersing the audience into the worlds of the observers and the observed.
