The Worst Person In The World
Joachim Trier | Norway, France,Sweden, Denmark | 2021 | 128m | 15 | n Norwegian with English subtitles

A modern dramedy about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo, The Worst Person in the World chronicles four years in the life of Julie (Renate Reinsve), a young woman navigating the troubled waters of her love life and struggling to find her career path. The third and final standalone title in Joachim Trier’s Oslo-set trilogy, following Reprise (2006) and Oslo, August 31st (2011), this is a wry, moving, and sexy portrait of Julie’s journey of self-discovery, leading her to take a realistic look at who she really is. Stirring together its beauty, complexity, honesty, and humour, this is a relatable romantic comedy with performances that deserve to be celebrated.

EVENT CINEMA: This Much I Know To Be True
Andrew Dominik | UK | 2022 | 101m | 15

Shot on location in London & Brighton, Andrew Dominik’s new feature documentary THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE captures Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ exceptional creative relationship as they bring to life the songs from their last two studio albums, Ghosteen (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) and Carnage (Nick Cave & Warren Ellis).

In this document of their first ever performances of these albums, filmed in spring 2021 ahead of their UK tour, we see the two, accompanied by singers and string quartet, as they nurture each song into existence. The film features a special appearance by close friend and long-term collaborator, Marianne Faithfull.

Shot in colour by Andrew Dominik and with cinematography by Robbie Ryan, THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE is a companion piece to Dominik’s 2016 film One More Time with Feeling. It reaches into the deep friendship and personal relationship between Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, something glimpsed in the 2014 Cave pseudo-documentary, 20,000 Days on Earth. The film will prove to be another significant moment in the journeys of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, capturing the mood and spirit of the pair as they move through a new, optimistic phase.

Pushed Up The Mountain plus Director Q&A
Julia Haslett | China, USA | 2020 | 76m | No Cert 12+

PUSHED UP THE MOUNTAIN is a poetic and emotionally intimate film about plants and the people who care for them. Through the tale of the migrating rhododendron, now endangered in its native China, the film reveals how high the stakes are for all living organisms in this time of unprecedented destruction of the natural world.

We are delighted that director Julia Haslett will join us for a post-film Q&A. Julia is Assistant Professor of Documentary Film at North Carolina University and will be in Scotland in late May / June (peak rhododendron flowering season) to speak about the film during special screenings at the Botanic Gardens (RBGE) in Edinburgh and the new cinema in Fort William.
