If you are a cinema lover, don’t miss out on the International Film Festival on Tuesday 2 October from 3.40pm !
Organised by the Modern Languages Department to celebrate the European Day of Languages, the festival will feature four fantastic films from all over the world and there will be for all tastes and ages:
- Year 7 upwards: Ponyo (rated U) – A beautiful Japanese “Studio Ghibli” animé. An imaginative retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale. The Little Mermaid, Japanese style!
- Year 9 upwards: Wadjda (rated PG) – An insightful and fun Saudi Arabian drama that questions the traditional conservatism around the behaviour of girls in Saudi society. 10-year-old Wadjda is determined in her quest to buy a bicycle…
- Years 11-13: Train to Busan (rated 15) – An unidentified virus sweeps the country, only Busan is rumoured to be safe. Can a father, his daughter and fellow passengers make it there in time? A great South Korean Zombie movie.
- Years 11-13: The Clash (rated 15) – An intense and challenging Egyptian drama set in the aftermath of the Egyptian revolution that illuminates police brutality and the futility of religious divides. Very thought provoking.
All films will be shown in their original language with English subtitles.
