Showroom Cinema: ‘Clio Barnard’s Dark River runs into Sheffield for special Q&A’

When Francis Lee’s magnificent and Yorkshire set God’s Own Country exploded onto cinema screens last year, it felt like it mined a similar kind of vein as Hope Dickson Leach’s remarkable 2017 debut – The Levelling - in sprawling, emotional and beautiful fashion.

Cinema: With all good intentions

Cinema: With all good intentions

It’s the time of year for promises, resolutions and good intentions as we cross from one year to the next - of blank slates and fresh starts, and of understanding our mistakes and learning from them.

Cinema: War-torn desert country

The Afghanistan that is most familiar to UK screens is a war-torn desert country, full of soldiers and certainly not a place that would be high on most people’s holiday destination list. After being based in Afghanistan covering news reporting for French radio, director Sonia Kronlund turned her camera on a more surprising subject, the filmmaking of Salim Shaheen.
