Best of 2012
ONCE again Sheffield’s Showroom picks its favourite films of the past year to screen during the festive season. The cinema is known for its diverse programme and commitment to world cinema, so as well as including a screening of the Michael Fassbender hit Shame, this year’s retrospective also includes Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, winner of the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Indonesian martial arts film, The Raid and Monsieur Lazhar about an Algerian immigrant who is hired to replace a popular teacher who committed suicide in her classroom. The programme will draw to a close with Searching for Sugar Man, the documentary about whatever happened to the mysterious 1970s rock ‘n’ roller, Rodriguez.
