Leeds Film Quarter Continues in 2011

Our Leeds Film Quarter Screenings kick off 2011 with A Blonde in Love (Lásky jedné plavovlásky) on Thursday 20 January at 6pm in the Albert Room. The landmark, Oscar-nominated film helped launch the Czech New Wave and the career of the director of Amadeus, Milos Forman. A young Czech girl falls in love with a musician after a one-night stand and moves in with him and his disapproving parents, throwing all of their lives into chaos.

Dir. Milos Forman, Czechoslovakia, 1966, 85 mins

In February we return with Celia on Thursday 24 February at 6pm in the Albert Room. Set in mid 1950s Australia, Ann Turner’s acclaimed debut feature is a dark fable of childhood’s end, and an enthralling film to rank along the likes of 400 Blows and Stand By Me. Celia depicts a long hot summer seen through the eyes and over-active imagination of a nine year old girl.

Dir. Ann Turner, Australia, 1988, 99 mins

Last but not least, we have In the Land of the Deaf (Les Pays des Sounds) on Thursday 24 March at 6pm in the Albert Room. The films of Nicolas Philibert, the director of Etre et avoir, have shown him to be one of contemporary cinema’s greatest documentary filmmakers. In The Land of the Deaf is a powerful and thoughtful portrait of the rich, diverse, but often isolated culture of the deaf community.

Dir. Nicolas Philibert, France, 1992, 99 mins
