International Movie Night
Day for Night is a London based film company that aims to make independent films more accessible to the wider population. They work on exhibitions, distribution, and translation. In June they set up Cinémathèque, a monthly film night that is to take place at The Proud Archivist. This restaurant combines food with art, as the space is also used as a gallery and place for cultural events.

Every last Wednesday of the month, Cinémathèque will screen independently made art house films from around the world. Tickets are £4 in advance or £5 at the door. They are delicate, experimental, powerful, and gives you a glimpse into another culture. The film night debuted last month with HI-SO (Thailand, 2010), and the next two events have just been announced:

The Boot
23rd July, 7.30pm, Directed by Mohammad Ali Talebi, Iran, 1993, 59 minutes

Samaneh is a little girl with a brand new pair of red boots. One day she loses one of the boots, and goes on a journey to try and find it.

Children in the Wind
27th August, 7.30pm Directed by Hiroshi Shimizu, Japan 1937, 88 minutes

A mischievous little boy, Sampei is chief of his gang until his father is imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Sampei is sent to live with his uncle, but runs away to the circus, wondering if his father will ever come back.
