The Island and the Whales Cosmic Cat – plus Q & A with Mike Day (Director) –Monday 9th April – 7pm
In their remote home in the North Atlantic the Faroe Islanders have always eaten what nature could provide, proud to put local food on the table. The land yields little, so they have always relied on harvesting their seas.
Hunting whales and seabirds kept them alive for generations, and gave them the way of life they love; a life they would pass on to their children. But today they face a grave threat to this tradition.
It is not the controversy surrounding whaling that threatens the Faroese way of life; the danger is coming from the whales themselves.
The Faroese are among the first to feel the affects of our ever more polluted oceans. They have discovered that their beloved whales are toxic, contaminated by the outside world. What once secured their survival now endangers their children and the Faroe Islanders must make a choice between health and tradition.
Loving Vincent – Monday 16th April – 7pm
The life and death of famous Dutch post-impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh, becomes the focus of this innovative film.
First shot as a live action film with actors, then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in 65,000 oil-paintings, in the style of the artist himself, this extraordinary mix of performance, animation and painting questions what the medium of cinema can become in the 21st century.

LIVE THEATRE: Key Change – An illuminating portrayal of life in prison Monday 30th April – 7pm
Devised with women in HMP Low Newton, UK and originally toured to male prisons, Key Change is a raw and illuminating theatrical portrayal of women in prison. It was performed at the Houses of Parliament in 2016 to help policy makers further understand the complex journey women who come into contact with the Criminal Justice System face, and the impact of gender violence on their lives. Key Change is being performed and filmed in partnership with The Space, a digital commissioning agency supported by the BBC and Arts Council to share with a global audience.
“Key Change is notable for being neither sentimental nor in your face, yet refusing to duck the issues. In so doing it becomes a potent lesson in theatremaking for its total fusion of message with audience.”- The Stage.
13+ – Key Change has adult themes and language, including domestic violence, abuse, drug use.
