Thursday Pictures – All Quiet on the Western Front

This film from 1930 follows a group of German schoolboys, talked into enlisting at the beginning of World War I by their jingoistic teacher. The story is told entirely through the experiences of the young German recruits and highlights the tragedy of war through the eyes of individuals. As the boys witness death and mutilation all around them, any preconceptions about ‘the enemy’ and the ‘rights and wrongs’ of the conflict disappear, leaving them angry and bewildered. The film is not about heroism but about drudgery and futility and the gulf between the concept of war and the actuality.

Thursday, November 7, 7.30pm at the Killara Centre, Camperdown.

Refreshments and supper after the screening.

Thursday Pictures – Mostly Martha

Martha relies on her culinary skills as her primary means of communication. She lives for her work and presides with obsessive care over her spotless, precise kitchen. When a fateful accident leaves Lina, her 8-year-old niece, in her care, Martha’s orderly life begins to come undone. When the owner is consequently forced to bring in help, Martha and the new charming and carefree Italian chef are instantly at odds.

Screening starts at 7.30pm at Killara Centre, Camperdown. Supper and refreshments available after the screening.

Thursday Pictures – Sweet Country

IT’S FILM WEEK! The second half of our 2019 program kicks off this Thursday with Sweet Country, a deeply affecting tale of an Aboriginal man’s plight to seek justice after killing a white man in self-defence. Based on true events in 1920s outback Australia, this screening will complement a number of local events commemorating NAIDOC Week. Come along to see a modern Australian classic and enjoy supper and discussion afterwards. $10 entry or $30 for a three-month membership subscription.

Thursday Pictures – Departures

IT’S FILM WEEK! After winning a string of major awards including the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Departures went on to enchant audiences around the world. It centres on a young cellist who loses his job and finds himself reluctantly working in the funeral industry, knowing he will be shunned by many people, including friends and family. From this unpromising start, Departures blossoms into a lyrical, eye-opening film you are unlikely to ever forget.

Come along out of the cold this Thursday night for a touching film and stay after for supper and a discussion.

FILM WEEK – Goodbye Christopher Robin

After leaving London for the English countryside, writer A.A. Milne starts to spin fanciful yarns about his son’s growing collection of stuffed animals. These stories form the basis for “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “The House at Pooh Corner,” published respectively in 1926 and 1928. Milne and his family soon become swept up in the instant success of the books, while the enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to the rest of postwar England.

7.30pm at Killara Centre, Camperdown. Thursday, May 2, 2019. $10 entry (supper included). Three screening subscriptions available for $30 or yearly subscription available for $90.
