“Cinema allows us to reflect on life in unique and diverse ways. I’m so honoured to have helped assemble this year’s eclectic programme of films and I hope that, in these politically charged times, audiences find it entertaining, stimulating and illuminating.
“Sit back and meet courageous journalists, Oscar winning monarchs and misunderstood loners. Allow masterful, influential filmmakers Frank Capra, Alfred Hitchcock and Barry Jenkins to take you on a journey and experience the adapted works of a diverse range of writers from James Baldwin to Daphne du Maurier”.
