The press quotes speak for themselves:

  • “Provocative, mildly terrifying and essential”  – The Metro
  • “Many teenagers Kidron meets seem truly enslaved to their smart-phones”  – The Financial Times
  • “Beeban Kidron’s documentary about the reality of the online world looks for the strings” – The Evening Standard
  • “Beeban Kidron’s smart and serious documentary offers a survey of the virtual world’s creeping infiltration into our lives” – The Independent

In fact we have a fab documentary double-bill (both films are distributed by Dogwoof) for you on Thursday 21 November, starting at 7pm, with FREE interval snacks and all finished before 10pm, as we’re showing another brilliant new doc ‘Village at the End of the World’ (Sarah Gavron, 2012, Den/UK/Greenland, 82 mins, Cert Exempt) with ‘InRealLife’.

Watch trailer here:

In a village on an island of only 59 people (and even more dogs) a teenage boy runs the village store but hopes to go to the mainland to experience the  life he sees via Facebook. This charming new doc has amazing cinematography and music, gentle humour and shows us just how much more we all have in common in this global village we now live in.
