NTCP8: A Look Back at Films by Anticipate Pictures

Description
Anticipate Pictures was founded to address one frustration - where did all the good films go? When was the last time we walked out of a cinema feeling like the film we just saw changed our lives?

Since September 2016, we have released 12 films under the labels Anticipate Films and Anticipate Docs. Most of them are screened at a little-known cinema venue called The Arts House, where there is an intimate cinema called the Screening Room on the ground floor. It has been our default home since Dec 2017, and now, Anticipate Pictures invites you to revisit some of our past films, where our fans have been voting since June to pick their favourite 6 titles to bring back onto our big screen.

As an extra incentive to see the films, we will provide discounts for every person in your party who attends - so the more people in your group, the bigger the discount for each of you! In addition, to commemorate the occasion, we will also launch our first anti-cellphone-use t-shirt for sale.

We look forward to seeing you at our movies!

Schedule:

Thursday 19 July, 8pm - HAPPY END dir. Michael Haneke (107 mins) - NC16



Synopsis: When her mother falls ill under mysterious circumstances, young Eve is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais. The Laurent family – wealthy, neurotic and self-obsessed – own a lucrative construction company and live in a sprawling mansion house, waited on by servants. But trouble is brewing, as a series of intergenerational back-stabbings threaten to tear the family apart. | Cannes Film Festival 2017 Palme d'Or Nominee

Friday 20 July, 8pm - PATERSON dir. Jim Jarmusch (118 mins) - NC16


Synopsis: Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer. He goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani). By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. The quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

Saturday 21 July, 1pm - OH LUCY! dir. Atsuko Hirayanagi (95 mins) - M18



Synopsis: The story of Setsuko Kawashima (Shinobu Terajima), a lonely, chain-smoking office lady in Tokyo who is past her prime. After deciding to take an English class, she discovers a new identity in her American alter ego, 'Lucy,' and falls for her instructor, John (Josh Hartnett). When John suddenly disappears, Setsuko earnestly sets out on a quest to find him, eventually leading her to the outskirts of Southern California.


Saturday 21 July, 3:15pm - THE SQUARE dir. Ruben Östlund (152 mins) - M18



Synopsis: Christian (Claes Bang) is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is "The Square", an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian's foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for "The Square". The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.

Sunday 22 July, 1pm - CITY OF GHOSTS dir. Matthew Heinemann (90 mins) - M18



Synopsis: Captivating in its immediacy, CITY OF GHOSTS follows the journey of “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” – a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014. With astonishing, deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to stand up against one of the greatest evils in the world today.

Sunday 22 July, 3:15pm - TONI ERDMANN dir. Maren Ade (162 mins) - M18


Synopsis: A prankster father tries to reconnect with his hard working daughter by creating an outrageous alter ego and posing as her CEO's life coach.
