Our next screening is If Beale Street Could Talk and I’m really excited about this one because not only is it the latest film from Barry Jenkins, the director of Moonlight, but it’s an adaptation of a novel by James Baldwin, a man who’s elegance and razor sharp intellect burn absolutely dazzle.
The plot is focused on a black woman in Harlem who embraces her pregnancy while she and her family struggle to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime. It’s a film of it’s time and ours that is both righteous and romantic.
Here’s the trailer…
The film is rated 15. Tickets cost £7 and can be booked here.

Clameur Du Cinema’s January screening is Aleksey Germain’s Khrustalyov, My Car! (1998).
Originally released in 1998 and presented here in a newly restored 4k scan, Khrustalyov, My Car! focuses on military doctor General Klenski who is arrested in Stalin’s Russia in 1953 during an anti–Semitic political campaign and accused of being a participant in a so-called “doctors plot”. It is regarded as an inspiration behind Armando Ianucci’s The Death Of Stalin (2017), and remains one of Aleksey German’s most enduring and satirical films amongst his exclusive body of work with includes the unforgettable Hard to Be a God (2013).
“Khrustalyov, My Car! is relentless and overpowering, yet the film is often poetic in its blend of pathos, freneticism, surrealism and matter of factness” – Time Out
“In this snowbound fever dream, beauty and anarchic humour co-exist with horror” – The Wall Street Journal

There are too many films to screen so at every Clameur Du Cinéma screening we like to give away some movies that have a (maybe tenuous) connection to the film we are screening.
This month’s film is The Rider (2018), a drama in which the main cast are played by the people involved in the real life story that inspired it. One audience member will win a copy of I, Pierre Riviere, Having Slaughtered My Mother, My Sister And My Brother (1975). I,Pierre… is the true story of a man who murdered his family in 1835 as re-enacted by non-professional actors from the area in which the events took place. It’s a fascinating drama-documentary and is accompanied by Back To Normandy (2007), a documentary that catches up with the cast over 30 years later.
You can book tickets for The Rider here.

Written and directed by Chloé Zhao, The Rider, based on the real experiences of it’s main cast, tells the story of a young cowboy’s search for new identity and what it means to be a man in the heartland of America after a traumatic head injury.
“Movies that blend real life and fiction usually foreground the docu-style realism, using the poetry as grace notes or punctuation. Zhao privileges both, and in so doing creates a work of heartbreaking beauty.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
