John Muir Film Festival

Dunbar Film will be showing two films at the beautifully refurbished  West Barns Village Hall on Saturday 19 April as part of the John Muir Film Festival.

1.30pm.  The Edge of the World (U)

Dir: Michael Powell (UK 1937) 1h12m

Cast: John Laurie, Belle Chrystall, Eric Berry, Kitty Kirwan, Finlay Currie.

The film that made Michael Powell’s reputation is a love story set on the remote island of Foula. Filmed on rocks and dizzying cliffs, it’s a landscape film par excellence – a rhapsodic vision of lives lived at the farthest extremes of nature and human society.

Pay on the door £4 (£10 family)

3.15pm. Grizzly Man (15)

Dir: Werner Herzog (USA 2005) 1h44m

Filmmaker Werner Herzog, perenially fascinated by obsession, here takes on the strange case of Timothy Treadwell, who spent 13 summers in Alaska living among grizzly gears and chronicling their lives on video. The animals he loved, however, were to be his downfall. (Contains strong language)

Pay on the door £4 (£10 family)

I’ve Loved You So Long

This year’s season kicks off on Friday, 25th Jan with

I’ve Loved You So Long

Quoting my colleague, Tadg:

“This film nearly made it onto our programme for last year. I can’t remember why we decided not to include it but over the year we have been watching how it has done with other film societies. The verdict has been universally positive with almost every one ranking it as their best film of the year. So, it became an obvious choice for our first film of the year.

If you want to have a look at the trailer it’s here I’ve Loved You So Long (Trailer) – YouTube

(it doesn’t give anything away)

Hopefully we will see you on Friday 25th at Hallhill (doors open 7:30, film begins at 8:00)”

We encourage and welcome all members, ex-members, and everybody else who simply want to pay 5 pounds for a ticket on the night!

Here is our film programme of the year, 2013 (a pdf file to download).
