CROSSING THE CHANNEL: FRENCH IMPRESSIONISTS IN LONDON

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
With Fiona Fitzgerald, covering 1870-1904. This talk links with the ‘Impressionists in London’ exhibition at Tate Britain.
The cultural distance between France and England has always been elastic. In this talk, Fiona Fitzgerald tracks some of the artistic journeys made by Pissarro, Monet and Derain, as well as the more sustained stays by Dalou, Sisley and Legros. She explores interconnections with English artists and Art and asks why certain kinds of work travelled better than others.

Cinema @ The Cut - OUR LITTLE SISTER (PG)

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
Director Hirokazu Kore-eda, 2015, Korea, 128 mins, with Masami Nagasawa, Suzu Hirose, Haruka Ayase, Kaho.
'Watching this film is a vitamin boost for the soul' says Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian. It tells the story of three young sisters, all in their twenties, living alone in the family home, estranged from their parents. They are happy enough but there is a sense of stagnation. Then their delightful teenage half-sister Suzu moves in, completely changing the group's dynamics. The question is whether her presence will improve their situation or hold them back from finally maturing into adults.
Ticket Details: Ticket price - Standard £5.00, Cinema Club members £4.00
