Asif Kapadia joins Jon Davies for the second in a special season of guest speakers at our fortnightly cinema club, No Ticket Required. Asif Kapadia, is the director of award-winning documentaries Amy, Senna and, most recently, Diego Maradona.
World-renowned director Asif Kapadia will look back to his 2002 feature film The Warrior, with special reference to its leading man Irfan Khan (Life Of Pi, The Lunchbox, Slumdog Millionaire), who sadly passed away earlier this year. The period drama is set in India at the time of the feudal lords and the power they wielded. Jon Davis will ask Asif about the film and how it might have relevance to the modern world.

No Ticket Required is a fortnightly online event. It's open to our audiences new and old and we look forward to seeing you there! Please book your free space on the 'book now' link on this page. Spaces are limited: book one space per screen joining (so if there are two or three of you joining on the same screen, you only need to book one space).
How No Ticket Required Works
Discussions take place on fortnightly Mondays at 8pm. By the Thursday prior, Watermans will release a short video from Jon Davies introducing the film. It can be watched on Watermans' website or YouTube. Jon will give a bit of background to the week's film and ask some questions to get you thinking. Watch Jon'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.
PLEASE NOTE WE WILL NOT BE SHOWING THE FILM AT THE DISCUSSION, SO YOU NEED TO WATCH IT BEFOREHAND.
On Monday at 8pm, we'll get together on via video calling platform Zoom for a short presentation from Jon and a chance to discuss the film.
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.
