July 20th – 22nd 2012

Baldersby Park, Topcliffe, North Yorkshire

www.deershedfestival.com

Deer Shed Festival = the vibe of a lazy Sunday afternoon in the perfect pub beer garden, sound-tracked by a bill that resembles the 6 Music playlist. Shortlisted for the Best Family-Festival at the UK Festival Awards 2011, this is an independent festival run by a family for the family. The Deer Shed Festival team book bands they love, work with like-minded people, keep it chilled, don’t squeeze a thousand tents into a field the size of a postage stamp and don’t charge a fortune. Good old-fashioned hospitality and great bands.

Tickets are available online now for Picturhouse members here. Non members will need to call to reserve tickets at 08717042068 quoting the password ‘Heavenly Films Night’.

Finisterre is a beautifully shot and edited homage to London, soundtracked by songs from the band’s album of the same name. Directed by Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans in collaboration with Saint Etienne the film explores the attraction of the city through interviews with artists, musicians and kindred spirits that have inspired the band over the years. The one hour film premiered at the onedotzero film festival in 2003 and will be re-issued later this summer by the BFI as part of a Saint Etienne London trilogy film set.

The evening starts at 8pm, the film will be accompanied by the rarely screened trio of films about London’s disappearing cafes – Today’s Special, the premiere of a new short Banksy’s London and two Q&A sessions: one with Bob, Pete and Sarah, another with Paul Kelly & Kieran Evans. Afterwards from 10.30 to midnight Bob and Pete will be Djing in the bar. Should be a great night, tickets are limited so book soon to avoid missing out.

15 Jun: Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People: A Paul Kelly Retrospective

WHEN: Saturday 15 June 2013, 11am-6pm
WHERE: Cantor Film Center, 35 East 8th Street (between Greene Street and University Place).

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

11:00: INTRODUCTION by Sukhdev Sandhu
11:15: THIS IS TOMORROW (2007), 54 min (NYC premiere)
12:15: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TODAY, MERVYN DAY? (2005), 45 min (NYC premiere)
1:30: FINISTERRE (2003), 60 min
2:45: TAKE THREE GIRLS (2008), 40 min (NYC premiere)
3:45-4:15: Discussion between Paul Kelly and Bilge Ebiri/ Q&A
4:30-6:00: LAWRENCE OF BELGRAVIA (2011), 86 min (NYC premiere)

Over the last decade, Paul Kelly – already well known as a musician (as a member of the much-revered East Village) and graphic designer – has forged a reputation as one of the most distinctive British documentarians of his generation. Refining an unusually lyrical brand of psychogeography informed by pop-modernist aesthetics, he moves between the city symphony, film essay and companionate portraiture to fashion beautifully composed and deeply atmospheric evocations of overlooked places and individuals. Whether working in collaboration with the band Saint Etienne on a lushly ambient trilogy about London, or in his witty and empathetic films about the much-beloved Dolly Mixture and Lawrence of Felt, Kelly’s films are immediately recognizable and immediately lovable.

Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People is the first retrospective of this key filmmaker’s work to have been held anywhere. Organised by the New York-based Colloquium for Unpopular Culture (Kiss Me Again: The Life and Legacy of Arthur Russell; Leaving The Factory: Wang Bing’s Tie Xi Qu; A Cathode Ray Séance: The Haunted Worlds of Nigel Kneale) in collaboration with Chickfactor magazine, it will feature the US premieres of many films, introductions by a constellation of artists and musicians, and Paul Kelly himself in discussion with the director and writer Bilge Ebiri.

To mark Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People, there will be available for sale copies of a very limited-edition book designed by Rob Carmichael (John Cale, LCD Soundsystem, Animal Collective’s ‘Crack Box’) and featuring contributions by a wide range of writers, musicians and architectural historians including Jon Dale, Travis Elborough, Alistair Fitchett, Dan Fox, Joe Kerr, Stephin Merritt, Jude Rogers, and Peter Terzian.

Mar 30: How We Used To Live, Regent Street Cinema, London

Screening of How We Used To Live, followed by a Q&A with director Paul Kelly and writer/author Travis Elborough hosted by author Cathi Unsworth.
Presented by Heavenly Films

How We Used To Live is a unique celebration of post-war London by acclaimed director Paul Kelly, created through a compelling use of rare footage drawn from the BFI National Archive.

With a narration by Ian McShane and an original score composed by Saint Etienne, How We Used To Live is alluringly impressionistic, poetical and political. Perhaps the most joyful, creative and entertaining offering to come from this unique film making collective.

Preceded by the short film Weather The Storm, 36mins (2017)
The stark beauty of Shetland in winter provides the perfect backdrop for a couple in search of reconnection. Soundtracked by Skylark and the Scorpion (aka Nick J. Webb and Petra Jean Phillipson).

How We Used To Live Header - screening at Regent Street Cinema

Apr 18: Asunder, Regent Street Cinema, London

Screening of Asunder, followed by a Q&A with director Esther Johnson and writer/producer Bob Stanley.
Presented by Heavenly Films

“… and then all the world began to roar.” Private William Finlay, Durham Light Infantry Regiment and Lincolnshire Regiment.

Asunder tells the story of what happened to an English town during the First World War, with almost all of its men fighting abroad and its women and children left behind. The North East was in the front line, thanks to its shipyards and munitions factories.

Using archive and contemporary footage and audio, Asunder collages the stories of people from Tyneside and Wearside to uncover just what life was like on the home front, with bombs falling on Britain for the first time, conscientious objectors sentenced to death, and women working as doctors, tram conductors and footballers.

The narrative moves from an Edwardian golden era, in which sport grew in popularity and aircraft and cars pointed to a bright new future, to a war that horrifically reversed this progress. In the Battle of the Somme, British, French and German armies fought one of the most traumatic battles in military history. Over the course of just four months, more than one million soldiers were captured, wounded or killed in a confrontation of unimaginable horror.

Narrated by Kate Adie, with a soundtrack composed by Mercury-nominated Field Music and Warm Digits.
