DOUBLE BILL – TWO AMAZING DOCUMENTARIES. We could not secure the rights to ‘Nanook of the North’ in time, so we have substituted it with a very timely brand new documentary ALL parents should watch and which compliments ‘Village at the End of the World’ perfectly.

‘InRealLife'(Beeban Kidron, UK, 2013, 82 mins) asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children? Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive. Quietly building its case, InRealLife asks if we can afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net? Directed by British director Beeban Kidron (‘Oranges are not the only fruit’ and ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’) and co-founder of the national initiative, Film Club. Trailer and info:


’VILLAGE AT THE END OF WORLD’ (Sarah Gavron and David Katznelson, Denmark/UK/Greenland, 82mins, 2012, Cert Exempt) A witty, surprising and ultimately feel good portrait of an isolated village of 59 people and 100 sledge dogs, surviving against the odds – beautiful cinematography and engaging subjects. Shot over the course of a year in Northern Greenland, the film introduces audiences to a remote village with more dogs than people. The film focuses on four townsfolk from the tiny population of 59 – Lars, the only teenager; Karl, the huntsman who has never acknowledged that Lars is his son; Ilanngauq, the outsider who moved to Niaqornat after meeting his wife on-line; and Annie, the elder who remembers the ways of the Shaman and a time when the lights were fuelled by seal blubber. In this astutely constructed real-life drama, we see how the economic and ecological future of the community is more fragile than its hardy inhabitants. Trailer:
