Seven Samurai
Akira Kurosawa | Japan | 1954 | 206m (inc Intermission) | PG | In Japanese with English subtitles

Widely considered one of the best films of all time, Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is immensely influential and arguably the defining work of Japanese cinema.

When 16th-century farmers whose village is repeatedly attacked by merciless bandits ask an elderly, masterless samurai (Takashi Shimura) for help, offering nothing but food in return, he hesitantly agrees and assembles a band of warriors to defend and train the villagers.

Boasting terrific performances, (with Shimura and Toshiro Mifune – as a peasant masquerading as a samurai – particularly memorable), superb camerawork, and expertly mounted battle sequences, Seven Samurai is undoubtedly one of the greatest action films ever made

.The re-release of Seven Samurai is one of the highlights of BFI Japan 2021: 100 Years of Japanese Cinema, at cinemas UK-wide from October – December 2021. The RBCFT is also screening Tokyo Story on Monday 29 November.

Titane
Julia Ducournau | France | 2021 | 108m | N/C 18

The winner of the Palme d'Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Titane is one of the most provocative winners ever, and only the second for a female director. French filmmaker Julia Ducournau dazzled with cannibal-themed debut Raw but goes way further in her genre-shattering follow-up.

Unnerving newcomer Agathe Rousselle plays Alexia, a young woman who – following an accident in her childhood – has an unusual bond with cars, consummated by a strange encounter with one of the vehicles she writhes on in her job as a motor show dancer. When her murderous tendencies make her a fugitive, she disguises herself as a boy and forms a very ambivalent bond with the chief of a firefighting unit (Vincent Lindon).

Screening as part of this year's French Film Festival 2021.

This screening is part of the Monday Night Film Club. A volunteer or RBC staff member will give a short introduction to a latest release, and everyone is welcome to stay for a post-film discussion.
Free tea, herbal and fruit teas, and coffee will be made available.

The Big Bike Film Night
 

The Big Bike Film Night is anThe Last DuelBike Night evening dedicated to the love of cycling, showcasing a diverse range of short cycling films from around the globe.

Treeline is showcasing The Big Bike Film Night, a collection of short and documentary films that has everything a cycle-centric audience could want - action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly designed and devised for the two wheel devotee! 

This treasure chest of films includes a story that reminds you of the importance of finding your ‘why’, and that with a bike you can find a worthy adventure in your own backyard; a movie that shows inspiration can come in all shapes and sizes – sometimes that shape and size is a seven-year-old girl who likes to ride BMX; an audacious mountain climbing challenge; a tale of trees, traps and trails, a passage of three first timers on their way to IRONMAN TAUPŌ; two friends on an environmental mission; a beautiful story about the power of two wheels and a community built through bicycling; and a part documentary/ part fantasy with mountain bike illustrations that will have you looking for your rig and heading down the trail in search of the same kind of magic; ALL in the mix!! 

These short films are a wonderful reminder of why we love to ride our bikes with films that celebrate the fun, adventure and inspiration that cycling enables, whatever your ride is.

Getting Away With Murder(s)
David Wilkinson | UK | 2021 | 175 plus 15 min interval and Q&A | 15

David Wilkinson, the film’s director, will join us for a Q&A.

During the Holocaust almost 1 million people in 22 countries carried out the unprovoked murder of 11 million innocent men, women, and children. 99% of those responsible were never prosecuted; most were never even questioned.

The Allies knew what their crime was, and where these people could be found - Germany, Austria, Italy, the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and numerous countries in South America. However, after the late 1940s, almost nothing was done.

Director David Wilkinson asks the question - why were so many people actively permitted to get away with their crime(s) - that of mass murder on an industrial scale. Wilkinson’s journey takes him all over the UK, to Ireland, the USA, the killing fields of Lithuania, Latvia, and the Czech Republic, to the infamous death camp Auschwitz - Birkenau in Poland, to Austria, France and, of course, Germany.
