EVENT CINEMA Faust: Opéra de Paris
Running Time 205m | 2021 | 12+ | With English Subtitles


This production was filmed live in Paris on March 22, 2021

Frustrated by the futile quest for knowledge, the erudite old Faust sells his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal youth and the beautiful Marguerite… Reworking the legend which Goethe popularised, Gounod focuses on the love story and elevates the significance of Marguerite’s fall and ultimate salvation. His decision to lighten the philosophical scope of the narrative allowed him to balance scenes where the supernatural called for something visually spectacular with a parallel microcosm governed by inner actions and feelings. Gounod’s score is a tour de force of melodic invention whose vocal composition reveals the composer’s skill at conveying sincere and immediate emotion.

For his Paris Opéra debut, German director Tobias Kratzer reflects on contemporary society’s obsession for eternal youth. With its sophisticated scenography, his production oscillates between hyperrealism and magic, the world of today and the eerie atmosphere of German romanticism.

Ahead Of The Curve plus post film discussion
Jen Rainin, Rivkah Beth Medow | USA  | 2020 | 98m | 12A


We are delighted to be screening the documentary about the long-running lesbian magazine Curve in conjunction with local magazine D&G Queerier, which recently celebrated its third birthday. D&G Queerier is a community magazine created by and for the LGBT+ community in Dumfries & Galloway.

All are welcome to stay on for a post-film discussion with staff from the magazine.

With a fist full of credit cards, a lucky run at the horse track, and chutzpah for days, Franco Stevens launched Curve, the best-selling lesbian magazine ever published. Ahead Of The Curve tracks the power of lesbian visibility and community from the early '90s to the present day through the story of Franco's founding of Curve magazine. Decades later, in the wake of a disabling injury, Franco learns that Curve will fold within the year and questions the relevance of the magazine in the face of accelerating threats to LGBTQ+ community. To forge a path forward, Franco reaches out to women working in today's queer spaces to understand what queer women need today and how Curve can continue to serve the community.

Film contains infrequent strong language, moderate sex references, nudity, discrimination.
