9th May, 2018

A Female gaze through a grindhouse film full of flair, feminist subversion and a wicked sense of humour!

Coming up this Friday we have the first of 2 'R-rated' films, we start with Revenge, the explosively confident, bloody debut from Coralie Fargeatwhich will... punch you in the face, to be honest! And then on Tuesday 15th, Deadpool 2 will scoop up your teeth, ventriloquise and then politely pop them back in for you!

What do you do in the toothless interim period? Maybe you'll enjoy Redoubtable, the slyly funny film about Jean-Luc Godard set in the 1960s!

This is the very tongue-in-cheek official synopsis for Deadpool 2: 

"After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the Yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover."

Forget Avengers: Infinity War, Aquaman and Antman and the Wasp. There’s only one superhero film we need to see this year, which is of course, Deadpool 2.

Revenge


Jen is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend -- until his two sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. As tension mounts in the house, the situation abruptly and viciously intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, she survives and soon begins a relentless quest for bloody revenge.

Redoubtable

With his romantic and slyly funny Godard Mon Amour the Academy Award-winning director of The Artist, Michel Hazanavicius, once again affectionately transports moviegoers back to a unique time and place in cinematic history: France, in the late 1960s.

Hazanavicius beautifully recaptures the anarchic energy of Godard's iconic early works...

STILL MARCHING...

100 years of women’s protest on film

Women who woke up and spoke up, who took action and still are...

From May until the end of 2018, we  bring you their stories in a series of feature films and documentaries, to mark 100 years since (some) women in the UK won the right to vote.

Accompanied by a lively programme of talks, debates and performances with guests from the worlds of politics and activism, arts and entertainment, the films show women at home, at work and in combat, in the streets and fields, corridors of power, factory floors and on stage – across more than a century of ongoing protest.

CROUCH END OPEN STUDIOS 2018
THIS WEEKEND

Crouch End Open Studios – a much loved N8 institution – is back in May with its biggest line-up yet. Thirty-seven local artists will be exhibiting their work in a range of local venues, all walking distance from central Crouch End. It’s a free event, so visitors can plan their own art trail and drop in on as few or as many artists as they choose. There is something to interest all ages, with a huge variety of paintings, prints, ceramics, sculpture, film and photography on show. It’s a great chance to explore this lovely part of north London, meet the artists in the community, and maybe take the chance to buy an original artwork.
