Film: The First Movie (2009)

Film is so ingrained in our culture that it can be difficult to imagine our lives without it, let alone how we might have felt when we first experienced its power. 

In this haunting documentary, film-maker Mark Cousins visits a small Kurdish-Iraqi village and shows films to local children for their first time. They are then given cameras to make their own films, and the resulting creations tell insightful stories of the magic, horror, and mundanity, of everyday human life.

7pm. Monday 20 May. Jill Craigie Cinema
