Through the Olive Trees – Canterbury Film Society


Mon 15 Jun 2020, 7:30pm–9:20pm

Where: Isaac Theatre Royal, 145 Gloucester St, Christchurch

Restrictions: All Ages

The Canterbury Film Society's 2020 programme now in full swing after a two-month 'COVID-19 holiday'. For the month of June only, screenings will be at the Isaac Theatre Royal (ITR) in Gloucester Street. Doors open at 7pm and screenings start at 7.30pm with a short introduction. There is easy parking in the central city at this time with free street parking after 6pm and a Wilson's carpark over the road from the theatre.

THROUGH THE OLIVE TREES is the third in Abbas Kiarostami’s 'Koker Trilogy'. Time Out's review calls it "...a witty, poignant, illuminating film about cinema’s potential as a unifying force…sheer brilliance.” This is ostensibly a film about shooting a movie in an earthquake-riven area. It evolves into a romantic comedy about a genial-but-illiterate ex-bricklayer, Hossein, who keeps asking for the hand of a girl from a better family. As with the ending of last week's AND LIFE GOES ON, the film’s last shot is a stunning tour de force, merging landscape, title and plot in one braided whole.

Tonight is a members-only event but we have membership prices to suit everyone, including generous discounts for students and youth. New memberships must be paid online beforehand OR by phone banking app on the night (we'll have no Eftpos available throughout June).

Food and drink will be available from the ITR downstairs bar. Please note: NO outside food or drink may be brought into this venue.

Contact tracing will be done inside the entrance (MOH Covid-19 QR reader or written list).
