AWAY

Dir: Gints Zilbalodis | Lativa | 2019 | 75 mins | Cert: G | Language: None

Important DISCOUNT CODE: Enter GARTER LANE in the discount code field when purchasing your film.

AWAY is about a boy travelling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he makes a series of connections with different animals and reflects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, AWAY explores our common, universal need to find a connection.

The multiple award-winning film took the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019. Director and animator Gints Zilbalodis worked on the film for three and a half years, writing the fascinating story, creating the beautifully animated landscapes and characters, and composing and recording the enchanting music to this stunning dialogue-free film.

LORRAM (Boat Song)

Directed, filmed & produced by Alastair Cole | Produced by Adam Dawtrey | Music by Aidan O’Rourke | 96 minutes | 2021 | PG

BOOKING LINK WILL BE LIVE ON Apr 06TH @ 6PM

The first cinema documentary entirely in Scottish Gaelic, Iorram (Boat Song) is a lyrical portrait of life in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, past and present.

Director Alastair Cole takes the audience on an immersive journey into the heart of a thousand-year-old community, blending archive sound recordings with contemporary visuals shot over the past three years, set to an original score by acclaimed folk musician Aidan O’Rourke.

At the core of the film is an extraordinary trove of sound archive, recorded by pioneering Scottish ethnographers in the mid-20th century, who visited the Outer Hebrides to capture the hardship and romance of life lived in precarious balance with the sea. These newly restored recordings preserve an oral history of lore and legends, tall tales and tragedies, passed down through generations of Gaelic speakers reaching back hundreds of years.

This soundtrack from the past is accompanied by images of the working rhythm of the islands today, on land and on water. The tough realities of fishing and gutting in all weathers and seasons co-exist alongside superstitions and visions of mermaids, faerie folk and mysterious vanishing islands.

The first film score by Aidan O’Rourke (of multi-award-winning folk group Lau) weaves together sound and vision in an emotional and cinematic narrative of toil, laughter and loss.

The sea has always sustained this community, while also holding the power to ravage the lives of the families who rely upon it. The film offers whispers and shadows of people and tragic events long since gone, yet whose memory continues to shape life on the islands today. As Scotland and the UK enter a new future, this provides a reminder that the threads of history and identity at this furthest edge of the British Isles are woven, unmistakably, in the lyrical power of the Gaelic language.

RAMS

Dir: Jeremy Sims | Drama | English | 118 min

BOOKING LINK WILL BE LIVE ON Apr 13TH @ 6PM

Important DISCOUNT CODE: Enter GARTER LANE in the discount code field when purchasing your film.

The funny and touching Rams is sure to have audiences flock to see it. In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill, Jurassic Park) and Les (Michael Caton, The Castle), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?

Inspired by the 2015 Icelandic film Hrútar, but very much its own piece, Rams was directed by Jeremy Sims (Last Cab to Darwin) and also stars Miranda Richardson (The Crying Game) plus Asher Keddie (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Wayne Blair (The Sapphires).

CARMINE STREET GUITARS

Dir: Ron Mann | Documentary | English Language | 81 minutes

BOOKING LINK WILL BE LIVE ON APR 20TH @ 6PM

Important DISCOUNT CODE:Enter GARTER LANE in the discount code field when purchasing your film.

Once the centre of the New York bohemia, Greenwich Village is now home to lux restaurants, and buzzer door clothing stores catering to the nouveau riche.  But one shop in the heart of the Village remains resilient to the encroaching gentrification: Carmine Street Guitars.

There, custom guitar maker Rick Kelly and his young apprentice Cindy Hulej, build handcrafted guitars out of reclaimed wood from old hotels, bars, churches and other local buildings. Nothing looks or sounds quite like a Rick Kelly guitar, which is the reason they are embraced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Jim Jarmusch, just to name a few.

Featuring a cast of prominent musicians and artists, the film captures five days in the life of Carmine Street Guitars, while examining an all-too-quickly vanishing way of life.
