A new strand of cinema comes to The Riverside from February 17th, and each third Monday of the month thereafter, showcasing World Cinema, documentaries, independent films, and re-issued classics.
Our season starts with FOR SAMA (18) on the 17th February at 7:45pm. An intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her. PARASITE (15) follows on 16th March and then the Cannes winner, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE (15) on 20th April.
