Critics have acclaimed Moretti’s latest film as his best for many years, at least since The Son’s Room: we screened what is possibly his most well known work, Caro Diaro (The Diary) many seasons ago.

Film for Tuesday 21st March

The distributors of our intended screening, “Black Mountain Poets”, ceased trading earlier this year, and we are unable to obtain a license for the screening of this film.  We are currently deciding on a replacement, and an announcement will be made as soon as possible.

The 21st is also the scheduled date of our second informal discussion evening, to be held in the Foyer of the Cramphorn Theatre, following the screening of the film.  This event may have to be rescheduled, however, depending on the length of the replacement film
