A White, White Day (2019) // Hlynur Pálmason

Belmont Head of Cinema Operations: Colin

"Hvitur, Hvitur Dagur is a claustrophobic drama set in Iceland. Ingvar Eggert Sigurdsson is as magic as ever as a father and grandfather who loses his wife. Through his grief he begins to learn of relationships by his own, which had been previously hidden from him. It's tense and terse, with a towering lead performance and a thankfully rehabilitative ending."

Iorram: Boat Song (2021) // Alastair Cole

Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel

"Filmed across Scotland's Western Isles, the choice to shoot this documentary entirely in Scots Gaelic gives a roaring nod to its continued use in fishing communities and a powerful platform to an endangered culture. 

Iorram shows the eerie, mystical power of the sea by cooing a shanty of hardened superstitions, dire times and a community fighting to stay alive."

Away (2020) // Gints Zilbalodis

Marketing Assistant: Ellie

"Follow the journey of a parachuting boy and a tiny yellow bird as they cross desert-like terrain, glassy lakes and snowy mountains to return home. Though the imagined landscape is darkly tinged by the presence of a menacing spirit creature, Away proves for meditative watching. Without a sound of dialogue, Gints Zilbalodis’s one-man animation is all at once gentle, suspenseful and extremely compelling."

Life, Animated (2016) // Roger Ross Williams

Education Recommends

To mark World Autism Awareness Week, the Education team recommends Life, Animated, a thoughtful documentary which shows how films can help us communicate. 

When toddler Owen stopped speaking aged three, he gradually reconnected with his family and the world by using the language of his beloved Disney films.

“We hope that this allows fellow cinephiles a new way to enjoy our carefully-curated films before we are able to welcome them back into our cinemas and also ensure that those who are less able to venture to our cinemas in Aberdeen and Edinburgh have a new way to access the best of independent, world cinema.”

Podcast series Script Apart takes a deep dive into the script with screenwriters Karen McCullah and Kiwi Smith, revealing some first-draft secrets and what they'd do differently if they wrote the film today.
