Bungay Film Club Presents Patience (After Sebald 12A) (12A)

UK 2012.  86 minutes.  Director: Grant Gee.

PATIENCE is inspired by THE RINGS OF SATURN, the work of W.G. Sebald (1944 - 2001), the German writer who spent most of his life in Norfolk and taught at UEA.  Both book and film take as their starting point a walk around Suffolk, but develop into a reflection on landscape and art, history and memory.  With contributions from writers Andrew Motion, Robert Macfarlane, Marina Warner and Iain Sinclair, artists Tacita Dean and Jeremy Millar, theatre director Katie Mitchell and film maker Chris Petit.

Grant Gee’s film is in keeping with the spirit of Sebald's writing: teasing, elegant and perhaps inevitably unresolved: an invitation as opposed to a destination.

This film is being shown as part of the Two Rivers Book Festival. Filmmaker Grant Gee has requested a £50 donation to the Suffolk Wildlife Trust in lieu of the usual licence fee.

Bungay Film Club Presents - Pain & Glory (15)

Spain 2019.  113 minutes.  In Spanish with English subtitles.

Directed by Pedro Almodovar. Starring: Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz.

A Spanish drama in which an aging film maker looks back on his life and loves, with vivid flashbacks to his childhood in a Valencian village and to his mother’s final years.  Antonio Banderas’ unshowy performance in the lead is one of many reasons to see this touching and ultimately uplifting film from one of the masters of contemporary cinema.
