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.


Enjoy this summer the right way here at our Bar Paragon in the heart of Genesis Cinema with a series of amazing FREE live music and movie events. Delicious cocktails, ice cold craft beer and delectable dinner always available! We have selected a great group of artists to come along and play a set of their wonderful music and, while they're here, show you their favourite film too. On June 29th Los Mojados Del Rio Tamesis present FRIDA.


Well established singer-guitarist, Guillermo Monroy sings with popular band Merengada amongst others. His characteristic voice brings to life the unforgettable tunes of Latin-America. Singing verything from Boleros, Son & Cumbias to Mexican Corridos, he is a natural when entertaining all types of audience.


Biopic of the bold and controversial life of artist Frida Kahlo. Set in Mexico City, this visually evocative film traces her lifelong, tempestuous relationship with her mentor, along with her illicit affairs with Trotsky and various women. Her forward-thinking artistic, political and sexual attitudes are explored as we witness a hard-drinking, passionate woman of the early 1900s, which earned an Oscar nomination for Salma Hayek.


#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.
