Nae Pasaran! (12A)                   
Nov 13 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out vital repairs on engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew at the time what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. With unprecedented access, The film Nae Pasaran! now tells the tale and also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meeting survivors of the period and hearing the Chilean side of the story.

“The world is full of light and this film is one shining example.” Emma Thompson

XY Chelsea (15)               
Dec 11 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

After causing the largest leak of secrets in US history, when she disclosed 750,000 documents to Wikileaks, ex-soldier and trans woman Chelsea Manning was supposed to spend 35 years in an all-male military prison. But in 2017 President Obama commuted her sentence, in an unprecedented move that divided the US and the world. The film follows her as she leaves prison, after seven years inside, and begins a new life, whilst at the same time having to deal with the far-reaching consequences of her past; the historic leaks that lead to her prison sentences, the unintended celebrity status that is thrust on her as one of the world’s most notorious whistleblowers, and transitioning to become the woman she has always known herself to be.

“Manning is a tremendous example of personal bravery and integrity, and of the power of directing one’s own unhappiness (whatever the source) into positive action. Comfortable people have little motivation to take on the world.” Flick Filosopher

started as a project about prisoners that were unfilmable…”  Mark Kermode, BBC Five Live
