16th November (Thursday)

My Life as a Courgette (PG)

Dir. Claude Barras Switzerland/France/Monaco 2016 (67m)


This gorgeous Oscar-nominated stop-motion animation - for kids, teens and adults alike - traces the effects of childhood tragedy with both great wit and sadness. Adapted by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), this funny and moving film tears up the rulebook for children’s cinema.

IMDB

The Red Turtle (PG)

Dir. Michael Dudok De Wit France/Belgium/Japan 2017 (81m)


Oscar winning Dutch animator Michaël Dudok De Wit mixes hand and computer-drawn animation for this wondrous story about the unlikely friendship between an island castaway and an enormous sea turtle. Without the use of any spoken dialogue, this unforgettably beautiful film explores both the freedom of isolation and emotion of companionship.

Dudley's notes (both films) and as DOC


Courgette posterLa tortue rouge affiche

Datchet Village Hall is a short walk from the village centre, shops and railway station.  There is plenty of free car parking adjacent to the hall.  Unfortunately it does not have a licence for the sale of alcohol but if you would like to bring alcoholic drinks to consume on the premises we will provide the glasses!

The Royal Stag in the village centre on The Green is a proper pub serving good food and beer, and open until midnight.  Ideal for a pre-film aperitif or a post-film drink and discussion.
