Much Ado About Dying + Director Q&A (15)

Simon Chambers is shooting a film in India when his uncle David calls him with a message of doom: “I think I may be dying.” David – a former actor and Shakespeare-lover – is a total drama queen, who has grown old on a diet of attention and applause. Simon finds his life drastically interrupted and everything that could go wrong does go wrong as he tries to help his uncle have a good death.


David’s anarchic spirit is unbreakable. He fights with Simon, refusing to go into a care home, insisting on dying in the squalor of his unheated tumble-down house. He can’t remember where he put his false teeth, but he still knows nearly all the lines from his beloved Shakespeare. David’s real life starts to echo King Lear, the play about an old man going mad and giving his kingdom away, as David starts giving away thousands of pounds to the hot, young “carer” who pops in from time to time.


Despite the house burning down, a period of homelessness, cancer, a permanent catheter, delirium from an infection, and the dreaded care home, they create an award-winning final performance to send David on his way.

Made in England: The Films of Powell and Pressburger (12A)

Directed by two-time BAFTA and Emmy winning David Hinton, this is Martin Scorsese’s personal and moving look at two of British cinemas greatest filmmakers.


Producing, writing, and directing, Powell and Pressburger created some of great classics of the British golden age including The Red Shoes, Black Narcissus, A Matter of Life and Death and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. In the words of Scorsese their films were “grand, poetic, wise, adventurous, headstrong, enraptured by beauty, deeply romantic, and completely uncompromising”. This film will be an unparalleled exploration of their genius.


Scorsese takes the audience on a very personal journey as we hear how, from a young age he was captivated by their films, how they helped shape his own filmmaking and how a later friendship with Michael Powell left an indelible mark on his own life.


Brought to life with a treasure trove of rare archival material from the personal collections of Powell, Pressburger and Scorsese, the story will be told using diaries, audio recordings, home movies, personal snapshots and of course the films themselves.
