1917
Sam Mendes | UK,USA 2019 | 119m | 15

Two young British privates during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldier's brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.

***** The Guardian, "all filmed in one extraordinary single take... Sam Mendes’s 1917 is an amazingly audacious film; as exciting as a heist movie, disturbing as a sci-fi nightmare."

**** Empire, "Almost everything you’ve ever seen in a war film is here. But never quite like this. It is very much a stylistic exercise, but if you’re going to do that, you have to really go for it. And 1917 really, really goes for it."

Monty Python's Life Of Brian
Terry Jones | UK 1979 | 94m | 15

Monty Python's brilliant comedy is shown in tribute to Terry Jones, who passed away recently after a long illness.

Possibly the most quotable film ever made ("What have the Romans ever done for us?", "Blessed are the cheesemakers"), Monty Python delivers an anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood's depiction of all things biblical with Life of Brian. Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in the stable next door, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and reluctantly mistaken for the promised messiah.

"So funny it was banned in Norway!"

Agniyogana
Emma Balgaves | Australia 2019 | 64m | U

Offering an experiential collage of action and stillness, light and darkness, sound and silence, Agniyogana explores the richness of traditional Hatha Yoga teachings. The film takes the viewer on a journey through time and space to rediscover the inner dimensions of Hatha Yoga and the true meaning of “yuj” (yoga). The documentary begins with a visual and aural initiation. The journey inward then explores the key requirements of Hatha Yoga: firmness of mind; the importance of faith; the necessity of a qualified teacher; skillful moderation; the methods to restrain the senses; and the practice of universal equanimity. Throughout the film the microcosm of the internal self is examined in relation to the macrocosm of the elements, seasons, time of day, and other external forces of nature. The narrative is woven together through commentary, wisdom, and insight from those who continue to uphold and live by the ancient ways of yoga.

Throughout, Agniyogana offers rarely seen glimpses of traditional Hatha Yoga practices as expressed by modern day yogins. Agniyogana is a meditation.

We are delighted to welcome Susan Neal who will give a short introduction to the film. Susan is a Yoga Scotland qualified teacher following the tradition of the Himalayan Institute.

A Hidden Life
Terrence Malick | Germany USA |2019 | 174m | 12A

The latest from director Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life) is a drama based on the true life of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer and devout Catholic, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II.

From rogerbert.com: "Terrence Malick’s “A Hidden Life,” the true story of a World War II conscientious objector, is one of his finest films, and one of his most demanding. It clocks in at nearly three hours, moves in a measured way (you could call the pacing “a stroll"), and requires a level of concentration and openness to philosophical conundrums and random moments that most modern films don’t even bother asking for."

Screening as part of the Monday Night Film Club. Each film will be introduced by a volunteer and all are welcome to stay on afterwards to discuss the film over complimentary tea and/or coffee.
