About this event

Our fortnightly online cinema club 'No Ticket Required' has been running since April 2020. It seeks out the interesting nuggets, forgotten gems (and maybe a few more recent box office smashes too) and gives you the chance to go deeper into film with our new host Michael Brooke. 

Michael will introduce the film and director, and lead an informal discussion via Zoom: feel free to join in, or just listen in. All are welcome.

FILM CHOICE FOR MONDAY 4 OCTOBER

For this session in light of the London Film Festival, the chosen film by the group is the BAFTA and Evening Standard Film award-winning I Am Not A Witch. The debut film by Rungano Nyoni that tells the story  about a little girl living in a small Zambian community, who is denounced to be a witch. She is sent to a special 'witches camp' where she is exploited to do chores and become a local attraction.

 PLEASE NOTE WE WILL NOT BE SHOWING EITHER FILM AT THE DISCUSSION, SO YOU NEED TO WATCH THEM BEFOREHAND

About Michael Brooke

Michael Brooke is a freelance writer specialising in central/Eastern European cinema and contributor to the book Polish Cinema Now! (2010). Michael also regularly leads talks for the Polish Cultural Institute. In No Ticket Required he lends his expert insight and relaxed conversational style to cinema from across the spectrum and invites you to take part.

How No Ticket Required Works

Discussions take place on fortnightly Mondays at 8pm. By the Thursday prior, Watermans will release a short video from Michael Brooke introducing the film. It can be watched on Watermans' website or YouTube. Michael will give a bit of background to the week's film and ask some questions to get you thinking. Watch Michael's video by clicking 'Play Trailer' above.

You'll then have until Monday to watch the film at home on an easily-accessible streaming platform such as Curzon Home Cinema or BBC iPlayer and to book your space on the video call.

On Monday at 8pm, we'll get together on via video calling platform Zoom for a short presentation from Michael and a chance to discuss the film... as well as vote on what the next week's film should be.

Don't worry if you're no Zoom expert: it's very simple. We will send you a link by 5pm on the day of the event, and our friendly box office team will be available from 7.30pm to help you get online if you have any problem at all. Please note you only need to book one ticket per screen, even if more of you are joining on that screen.
