She Said

New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor break one of the most important stories in a generation — a story that helped launch the #MeToo movement and shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood.

No Bears

No Bears is the outstanding new film from acclaimed Iranian auteur Jafar Panahi. In the film Panahi plays himself, a filmmaker trying to direct a cast and crew in Turkey, who is forced to remain in an Iranian village close to the border. As his actors perform their own story of attempted escape to Europe, Panahi finds himself coming up against suspicion and local traditions in the village where he is staying. Panahi’s latest film is a testimony to how artistry and protest can find inspiration in the very restrictions that he and other creative voices face.

NT Live: The Seagull

Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut in this 21st century retelling of Anton Chekhov’s tale of love and loneliness. A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside, dreams lie in tatters, hopes are dashed, and hearts broken. With nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other. Following his critically acclaimed five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, Jamie Lloyd brings Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s classic play to stage. Filmed live in London’s West End with a cast including Tom Rhys Harries (White Lines), Daniel Monks (The Normal Heart), Sophie Wu (Fresh Meat) and Indira Varma (Game of Thrones).

Jellied Reels presents: Letter Never Sent

Letter Never Sent is a visually dazzling and dizzying clash between the elemental forces of Mother Nature and the Human Spirit. Four committed geologists are sent to the expanses of Siberia in search of new diamond reserves. While their exploratory fervour burns bright amongst the bleak boreal forest, a love-triangle also begins to blossom within the group. However, with their task on the brink of completion, nature's unpredictable hand forces the expedition deeper into the wilderness and triggers a desperate bid for survival. Directed by Mikhail Kalatozov, internationally renowned for his collaborations with stylish cinematographer Sergei Urushevsky on The Cranes are Flying and Soy Cuba, shot many of the astonishing scenes in the less-often screened Letter Never Sent on location in the barren Russian hinterland. A significant influence on later western films such as The Revenant and Andrei Tarkovsky's early work, Letter Never Sent is a surprising examination of our relationship to the environment, the pursuit of progress, as well as a universal adventure of the highest order. "The most profound examination of man against nature ever filmed." - Dennis Jakob For more details of our monthly Jellied Reels screenings - follow us here!
