Showing next on Tuesday 19 March at 8.30pm
Pili

director: Leanne Welham
starring: Bello Rashid, Nkwabi Elias Ng'angasamala, Sesilia Florian Kilimila
Pili

In rural Tanzania, Pili works the fields for a pitiful daily wage in order to feed her two children whilst struggling to keep secret the fact that she is HIV-positive. When she is offered the chance to rent a sought-after market stall but given only two days to raise the deposit, Pili is forced to make difficult decisions that could have serious consequences for her and her family. The first feature from British filmmaker Leanne Welham is an uncompromising but poetic and moving work that has documentary origins, and a timely reminder of a still-serious issue that too rarely hits the headlines any more.


 


Why our films (usually) have to start promptly at 8.30pm

Although our films are scheduled to start at 8.30pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8.30pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.

Please note that some longer films will be scheduled to start at 8pm.
