Synopsis

GALA NIGHT! A DOUBLE BILL AND FOOD ALL FOR THE PRICE OF ONE FILM!

Our second film will start at 7.30pm. Incendies is a devastating mystery thriller. A dead mother, Nawal, leaves instructions in her will to her two twins, to deliver two letters to their unknown father and brother. What follows is their journeys, from Canada to the Middle East, and into their pasts. ‘The crucial territory covered is fixed in the heart. The film gathers momentum from its images, including the three dots Nawal tattooed on the heel of her missing son. I’ll say no more. Incendies is best opened fresh. But there is no way you’ll get it out of your dreams’ - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

This film was nominated for the Oscar for best Foreign Film and has won various awards at film festivals this year. Rod has found two great looking films here—and surprised all that know him by not choosing a French one! A good Gala night is promised for all.
