German film Stations of the Cross is set to be shown by Louth Film Club at the Playhouse Cinema this evening (Monday, December 30) from 7.30pm.
The film is about a girl from an ultra-conservative Roman Catholic sect approaching her confirmation.
Divided into 14 chapters very loosely representing the stages of Christ’s crucifixion, it is directed by Dietrich Brüggemann and scripted by his sister, who based the film on their experiences in a similar religious organisation.
Paul Hill, chair of LFC, commented: “With three brief exceptions each chapter is shot by a fixed camera. The effect is mesmeric, theatrical and insightful.”
Membership of the club costs £10 with £4 for each film (£6.90 for non-members; £5.50 for concessions). See full details on all the films in the current season at: www.louthfilmclub.com.
