Berlin 1945 (2020) // Volker Heise

Chief Operating Officer: Dougie 
"A three part documentary of archive footage and readings from contemporary diaries on the fall of Berlin in 1945. It's a terrifying insight into living in a capital city as the fabric of civilisation and decency collapses around you. It doesn’t shy away from the atrocities of the victors or the vanquished and gives a voice to the ordinary people who were just trying to survive."

Watch on BBC iPlayer
Bright Star (2009) // Jane Campion

Head of Cinema Operations: Yvonne

"Period romantic drama based on the relationship between Fanny Brawne and the poet John Keats. I loved Campion’s depiction of Fanny Brawne, she’s young and bravely loving in contrast to Keats and his complicated poet’s view of romance. The film is steeped in dappled sunlight and reflects Keats’ emphasis on sensuality and nature in his writing, it’s truly romantic."

Rent on Amazon Prime
Wolfwalkers (2020) // Tomm Moore, Ross Stewart
Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel
Wolfwalkers is a hand-drawn masterpiece with spiralling forests, a lilting score and this way of combining Miyazaki’s magical grit with Disney’s feel-good accessibility. Full of Celtic Myth, Irish History and the woes of over-parenting, this is a powerful film that’ll delight adults and children alike."

A Man Called Ove // Fredrik Bakcman
Payroll & Finance Officer: Sarah

"I just finished reading this, and it’s become one of my favourite books of the year. It has an incredible balance of humour and heartbreak, and a great reminder not to just write off any grumpy old men you meet! I think it’s one of those books which will stay with me for many years to come. Plus the 2015 film is a wonderful adaptation of the book, and is currently available to watch on MUBI. I would recommend reading the book first though, to get the full impact of the film!'' 

Many independent bookshops in Edinburgh will order in books in that you request - here's a great list of independent bookshops you can support!
