Winner of the Best New Director award at the San Sebastian Film Festival and scoring 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, Benedikt Erlingsson’s critically acclaimed debut feature Of Horses and Men is a darkly comedic, episodic tale of the lives of a remote Icelandic community and the deeply intertwined and highly emotive relationship with their horses. Erlingsson, viewing human behaviour through the eyes of the horses, brings deadpan humour to scenes that are sometimes bloody and brutal and not for the squeamish.

“Inventive, offbeat and, at times, jaw-dropping”  David Parkinson, Empire.

Iceland and UK, 2013, 81 mins. (Subtitled)

We plan to precede this film with a short made by one of a group of students who are currently studying film for A/AS level. We wanted an opportunity to bring the work of talented local individuals to the big screen, share their work with you and meet the film makers of the future.

Cinema located on first floor – regrettably no disabled access.

Licensed bar, hot drinks available from 7 pm.

Advance tickets available from Over the Rainbow (Sheepmarket, Leek),  Foxlowe Gallery or online.
