We continue to support the amazing Reclaim the Frame - a grassroots audience-boosting programme from Bird's Eye View that has the main aim of getting more of us out to cinemas watching, supporting and discussing films made by women.
We'll be at each of these screenings and we'll be around with Mia Bays BAFTA award-winning producer and director of Birds Eye View after the screenings for Q&As with guests and drinks and conversation in the bar with like-minded film fans.
First up is this Friday at HOME is a special screening of...The Rider
Once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, Brady is warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
Back home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota, Brady struggles with the physical and emotional complications of the accident. He is comforted by his inimitable little sister Lilly, who has Aspergers Syndrome, yet tensions between Brady and his gambling father, Wayne, is reaching a breaking point when Wayne resorts to selling Brady’s favourite horse, to keep their trailer home.
It premiered in the Directors' Fortnight section at the Cannes Film Festival where it won the Art Cinema Award, and at Sundance Film Festival 2018. It was written, produced and directed by Chloé Zhao and stars a real-life Lakota Sioux Bronc rider Brady Jandreau and his actual sister Lilly Jandreau and father Tim Jandreau playing versions of themselves.
The Rider with Reclaim The Frame screening + intro 18.15 this Friday 14th September at HOME
