Penwith Film Society

Welcome to Penwith Film Society, showing the best new and classic cinema from around the world to audiences in West Cornwall.

For the first time, as well as current releases, we are screening mini-season of masterpieces of European cinema. These classic films have been chosen for their individual brilliance, but they also share thematic resonances: the relationship between personal and social identity; different forms of belonging; the chaos of social and individual madness and resultant games of power. They also show a rich diversity of form and feeling: terrifying, tender, sexy, hilarious, poignant.

THREE COLOURS: BLUE

 

Part one of Kieslowski’s meditation on the three colours of the French Tricolor, Three Colours: Blue follows Julie (Juliette Binoche) as she finds freedom following the death of her husband and daughter. One of the profoundest cinematic examinations of grief, Blue focuses on the transformations from despair and denial through anger to eventual acceptance. Binoche's sullen, withdrawn and frequently wordless performances is a masterclass in screen acting, captured wonderfully by Slawomir Idziak's luminous cinematography.
