The Artist

7.30pm Saturday 1st August 2012

Dir. Michel Hazanavicius | 2011 | English | 100 mins | Cert. U

Outside a movie premiere, enthusiastic fan Peppy Miller literally bumps into the swashbuckling hero of the silent film, George Valentin. The star reacts graciously and Peppy plants a kiss on his cheek as they are surrounded by photographers. The headlines demand: "Who's That Girl?" and Peppy is inspired to audition for a dancing bit-part at the studio. However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin's world upside-down.

The Great White Silence

7pm Sunday 5th August 2012

Dir. Dir. Herbert G. Ponting | 1924 | English | 96 mins | U

A BFI restoration of this remarkable 1924 documentary, chronicling Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated journey to the South Pole. Its director Herbert G Ponting was the Antarctic Expedition’s official photographer-cum-cinematographer – his camera takes in the otherworldly landscapes, the wildlife (penguins, seals, killer whales, Skua gulls) and the goings-on back at base camp as the men and their animals prepare for their daunting challenge. The footage is accompanied by a haunting original score, while Abide With Me has rarely sounded so poignant.
