Synopsis

She is a dreamer, a fighter - curious and full of mystery. She is full of contradictions. Sometimes vulnerable, often wild and unpredictable. She is a lover, a mother, a teenager, a wife, a daughter, a woman, and this is her story.

We continue our commitment #WomenInFilm2018 with our season “Her Name Is…” which will see us screen films centred on her.


Our monthly screening with Nick Walker of Rochester Kino returns with Jean-Jacques Beineix's BETTY BLUE. The screening will be introduced by Nick Walker and will be followed by a salon discussion upstairs at the bar where you will have a chance to discuss this great film with fellow fans and first-time viewers!


A young woman whose passionate affair with handyman and would-be writer inexorably drifts towards tragedy as she becomes increasingly unbalanced.


#WomenInFilm2018 is presented in association with Birds Eye View, Hackney Wicked Women, WFTV, F-Rated, Bechdel Test Fest, Cinesisters, and #genesisters. As part of this year-long season we'll be screening films that have: a female director/co-director, a female writer/co-writer, or a strong/iconic female lead.
