Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Movie fans have plenty to look for­ward to in the Welling­ton Film So­ci­ety’s 2015 pro­gramme, which runs un­til Novem­ber.

The pro­gramme cov­ers sev­eral themes.

There are the melo­dra­mas of Dou­glas Sirk with All That Heaven Al­lows, The Tar­nished An­gels and A Time to Love and a Time to Die and the work of In­dia’s Satya­jit Ray, rep­re­sented by The Big City, Charu­lata along with The Ele­phant God.

There are also three clas­sic films of 1960s Bri­tish cinema.

Two are col­lab­o­ra­tions be­tween direc­tor Joseph Losey and writer Harold Pin­ter – The Ser­vant and Ac­ci­dent – and the third is John Sch­lesinger’s Billy Liar.

Fash­ion in film makes an ap­pear­ance. Alain Delon smoul­ders as Tom Ri­p­ley in Pur­ple Noon, there’s the orig­i­nal adap­ta­tion of Pa­tri­cia High­smith’s The Tal­ented Mr Ri­p­ley, and Ur­sula An­dress and Fate Du­n­away bring glam­our to The 10 and Puz­zle of a Down­fall Child re­spec­tively.

To mark the cen­te­nary of Gal­lipoli, a screen­ing of All Quiet on the West­ern Front has been pro­grammed.

The full pro­gramme com­prises 33 films from 12 coun­tries span­ning the years 1902 ( A Trip to the Moon) till 2014 ( Black Coal, Thin Ice).
