Days of the Bagnold Summer

Cast: Monica Dolan, Earl Cave, Rob Brydon, Tamsin Greig, Alice Lowe, Elliot Speller-Gillott
Director: Simon Bird
Screenplay: Lisa Owens based on the graphic novel by Joff Winterhart.

Set in the English suburbs, Joff Winterhart’s 2012 graphic novel unspools over one long summer, as Daniel, a 15-year-old metalhead, finds himself stuck at home with his 52-year-old librarian mum, Sue when his trip to Florida to visit his dad and his dad’s pregnant new wife is canceled. Drenched in ennui, pathos, gentle humor, anger, and affection, Days of the Bagnold Summer is a funny yet sweet coming-of-age story about single motherhood and Metallica. Daniel and his mom are suddenly faced with the prospect of six long weeks together. An epic war of wills ensues in their suburban home as Daniel just wants to listen to heavy metal and start a band while his mom hopes to rekindle the fun times they used to have together. Featuring original songs by Belle and Sebastian.

M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity

M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity

1:21hrs

Director: Robin Lutz

Narrated by Stephen Fry.

This story of world famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972) is equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia. Robin Lutz’s entertaining, eye-opening portrait gives us the man through his own words and images: diary musings, excerpts from lectures, correspondence and more are voiced by British actor Stephen Fry, while Escher’s woodcuts, lithographs, and other print works appear in both original and playfully altered form. Two of his sons, George (92) and Jan (80), reminisce about their parents while musician Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills & Nash) talks about Escher’s rediscovery in the 1970s. The film looks at Escher’s legacy: one can see tributes to his work in movies, in fiction, on posters, on tattoos, and elsewhere throughout our culture; indeed, few fine artists of the 20th century can lay claim to such popular appeal.

This new documentary chronicles the rise, fall, and resurrection of the father of the American Arts and Crafts movement – Gustav Stickley.

It traces the development and evolution of Stickley’s unique style, as well as the creation of his diverse businesses including the Craftsman Magazine, Craftsman Farms, and his ground-breaking Manhattan store. It also details the eventual loss of his businesses – and, after several decades, the rebirth and recognition of the movement he inspired. The film visits several key locations in his lifetime, including his Syracuse home, where he lived and created his first arts and crafts interior, and the pump house at Skaneateles Lake in upstate New York, which he restored as a summer family camp; as well we meet some of the talented collaborators Stickley surrounding himself with, such as Harvey Ellis, Lamont Warner, and Irene Sargent.
