Seven Songs for a Long Life
Amy Hardie | GB | 2015 | 82m

Seven Songs for a Long LifeThis documentary filmed at the Strathcarron Hospice in Scotland, featuring terminally ill patients, challenges current western taboos about death and dying.

As part of the ‘Being Human’ festival after the screening, Professor David Clark and other members of the University of Glasgow led project ‘Global interventions at the end of life’, will host a discussion with director Dr Amy Hardie. The panel will explore the medical humanities and the personal issues faced by researchers and film-makers working in this field, which by nature involves collaborating with people in difficult and often tragic circumstances.

Justin Kurzel | GB, France, USA | 2015 | 113m | 15

This visceral interpretation of ‘the Scottish play’ places emphasis on the physical conflict – transposing much of the action to the epic Scottish landscape, with battlefields steeped in the red haze of death. Michael Fassbender excels as the brave general whose ambition leads him to guilt-ridden moral ruin, and Marion Cotillard conveys Lady Macbeth’s powerhungry descent into madness with nuanced sophistication. Shot in locations including Skye and the Highlands, this is a brilliantly bold adaptation.

Royal Opera House - Don Giovanni
Francesca Zambello | 2008 | 202m

Don GiovanniMozart's music, and the words of his great collaborator Da Ponte, are brought to life in Francesca Zambello's engrossing production with its rich and colourful designs by Maria Bjornson. The music is memorable, dramatic and enjoyable: from the seductive solo voices of the famous 'La ci darem la mano' to the fabulous ensemble as Don Giovanni's infatuated conquests, vengeful victims and their outraged relatives join forces for justice. And retribution does finally come to Don Giovanni, a serial womanizer and a murderer, with the searing flames of Hell ready to engulf him. Simon Keenlyside heads the outstanding cast, conducted by renowned Mozart expert Charles Mackerras.

Sarah Gavron | GB | 2015 | 106m | 12A - Infrequent strong language, moderate violence, a scene of force-feeding

SuffragetteAt the turn of the century, British women suffered at the hands of the patriarchy – forbidden the right to vote and basic equality. This film tells the story of the select few who stood up to the social norm, working women who radicalised the status quo and saw violence as the only route to change– willing to sacrifice everything for what they believed in. This is an important and compelling story, told by a female writer (Abi Morgan) and director (Sarah Gavron), and with an all-star female cast.

Do I sound Gay?
David Thorpe | 2015 | 18

Do I sound Gay?This free and open screening of the acclaimed documentary “Do I sound Gay?” is sponsored by the Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women Partnership (DAVAWP) and it will provide an opportunity to explore questions relating to gender, hyper-masculinity, discrimination, bullying and homophobia.

Does such a thing as a “gay voice” or a “straight voice” exist? Who determines what a “gay voice” or a “straight voice” should be like? Why sounding “gay” can trigger bullying and discrimination? How do gender stereotypes influence our behaviour?

These and more questions will be explored during the screening and in the discussion afterwards which will be supported by members of the DAVAWP, LGBT Youth, Terrence Higgins Trust and LGBT Plus.

This film screening is free of charge but booking is required.
To book your place, please contact or phone 01387 245190
