Screening of Polyland (2017) + Directors Q&A, Friday June 22nd @ 7:30pm⠀

Polyland (2017) is a documentary film directed by Dasa Raimanova and Zofia Brom.⠀

Polyland gives a voice to three strong female characters from different minorities in Poland and explores the nuances of how it feels to be black, Muslim or LGBTQ+ in the most homogenous country in an ever more right-leaning Europe. Polyland‘s three women were all born in Poland and currently are citizens of Wroclaw, the biggest city in Western Poland. Ania, Miriam and Elmelda seek to be seen, not as “the other”, but as a part of Polish society.⠀

Advance tickets are £8.50 (£6.50 concession) and may be purchased from Billetto, or call 020 7840 2200 to purchase direct from the Museum by calling during office hours. If you would prefer to pay on the door, the price will be £10 (£7 concession)⠀

Kennington Noir presents Scarlet Street(1945), directed by Fritz Lang and starring Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett. Wednesday 20th June @ 7:30pm⠀

A lonely store cashier (the great Edward G. Robinson) is trapped in an unhappy marriage to a shrewish wife, and finds solace through his amateur painting hobby. Whilst on the way home one night he meets a beautiful woman (Joan Bennett) and he gradually becomes obsessed with her, seeing her as an escape from his humdrum existence and letting her believe that he is a wealthy artist. She plays along and takes advantage of his naiveté, manipulating him and extorting his money to support her own lifestyle. Her con-man boyfriend (Dan Duryea) gets her to pretend that the paintings are actually her own creations, and they attract a critic’s attention, until Edward G. finds out the truth, when the plot gets darker still.⠀

The Cinema Museum is delighted to welcome Kevin Brownlow to another of our popular ‘Desert Island Flicks’.⠀
