Louth Film Club has launched its programme, running from February 2015 to January 2016, and it includes the pick of new films from around the world.
There are films from as far apart as China and the USA and from conflicting neighbours Israel and Palestine, from as geographically contrasting locations as Australia’s western desert, Russia’s Arctic coast and Turkey’s Antatolian mountains.
And kicking off the programme, on 9 February, the club is showing its first-ever film from Laos, The Rocket.
Several of the films the club has selected have won major prizes, including the Polish drama Ida, voted Best Film at the London Film Festival and the European Film Awards, and Turkey’s Winter Sleep, which took the coveted Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
Louth Film Club shows all its films at the Playhouse Cinema at 7.30pm every other Monday.
