About this event

A joint presentation and screening by Jon Davies and Michael Brooke

A warm welcome to our two resident film experts, who finally get the chance to meet in the flesh, for a entertaining and informative look at Pawel Pawlikowski,s multi award winning drama.

It has more poignancy than when released given the times we live in, but stands on its own as one of the finest period dramas of the past decade.

Cold War (15)

Paweł Pawlikowski follows the Oscar-winning Ida with this stunning and epic romance set against the backdrop of post-war Europe. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, it spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.

A bona fide masterpiece... Pawlikowski is a peerless dramatist
