20,000 Days On Earth
Runtime:175mins       Rating:15A

20,000 Days on Earth, followed by Live Satellite Event with Nick Cave September 17
20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is a bold vision of one of music's most mysterious and charismatic figures, the iconic Nick Cave. In their debut feature directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary by weaving a cinematically staged day in Cave's life with never-before-seen verité observation of his full creative cycle.
The film delves into Cave's artistic processes, unpicking the stuff that makes him tick. We meet those who have affected his life, personally and professionally, including hilarious moments shared with his regular collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist and epic beard-wearer Warren Ellis; actor and friend Ray Winstone; and Kylie Minogue, whom Cave duetted with on his mainstream hit single Where The Wild Roses Grow. These voices from the past revisit Cave in daydream-like scenes as he sits behind the wheel driving through his adopted hometown of Brighton, England. The film constructs a narrative and cinematic reality that seamlessly blends performance and storytelling with emotional truths. Avowedly neither a music documentary nor a concert film, 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH still contains electrifying performances. We see a song grow from the tiniest of ideas sketched out by Cave in his office to a monstrous epic performed by the peerless Bad Seeds on stage at Sydney Opera House. We also witness Cave open up to psychoanalyst Darian Leader as he discusses how his early years continue to inform his work, and later join him on a journey through his personal archive. This category-defying film possesses the same frankness and wry humour that run through all of Cave's work, and pushes the form into new territory, exploring universal themes and celebrating the transformative power of the creative spirit.

Soul Boys of the Western World & Spandau Ballet Live
Runtime:102mins       Rating:TBC

Soul Boys of the Western World is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world’s view of music and fashion. At the heart of it all was Spandau Ballet, five friends who epitomised the early 80s London scene and became one of the decade's most iconic bands with the world at their feet. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained. Directed by long-time Julien Temple producer, George Hencken, her archive-only feature documentary combines newsreel footage of the time with unseen video from the band's home movies, along with long lost material newly discovered. The film takes us into the heart of the era and the cultural, political and personal landscape that formed the backdrop to the band's story. A successor to Temple’s The Filth and The Fury and its depiction of punk era Britain, Soul Boys of the Western World is what happened next, the first on screen document of 1980s culture. The film will not only speak to fans of the band but to a whole new audience whom were not even born in the 80s. This is the real story of the time, from the DIY glamour and glitz reaction of The Blitz Club to the daily grime of the constant strikes and hardship the UK faced. Featuring music from throughout the band’s career, from their very first demos to songs recorded after their reformation, as well as music by their peers and influences, Soul Boys of the Western World lets the viewer inside the bubble of what life was really like to be a global pop superstar and what that can do to life-long friendships.

Royal Ballet: Manon (Live)
Runtime:155mins       Rating:LIVE

Manon tells the story of an impulsive young woman who is drawn into a world of male desire. She recklessly chooses luxury over love and, in doing so, pays the ultimate price. Jules Massenet based his 1884 opera on Abbe Prevost's controversial novel L'Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut. Laurent Pelly's charming production sets the action in the Paris of Massenet's day. The staging evokes the colour and elegance - as well as the darker social undercurrents - of the Belle Epoque. Manon is one of the great female roles of opera: she is both innocent ingenue and teasing seductress. Her music is richly varied, ranging from the sweetly hesitant 'Je suis encore tout etourdie to the flamboyant Gavotte, Obeissons quand leur voix appelle, and the heartbreaking duet with Des Grieux 'Tu pleures! The role of Des Grieux, whose music includes the great aria Ah! Fuyez, douce image!, is a popular one with many tenors. Vittorio Grigolo made his Covent Garden debut to great acclaim in 2010 as the passionate and betrayed lover.

Don Giovanni: Live from Opera National de Paris
Runtime:219mins       Rating:TBC

Of the three operas written with Da Ponte, Don Giovanni is indubitably the darkest and the most desperate. All the characters, the seducer and the seduced, are possessed by a breathless fury. Mozart offers them his most somber, suspenseful, extreme, yet perfect music. French writer Pierre Jean Jouve evoked Mozart’s mastery in these terms: "In this inspired work, instinct is capable of such Hysteria, in the strict sense of the term, of such extremes of behavior, of intoxication and oblivion, of supreme positivism and absolute negativism, that we who have the same tendencies within ourselves, are swept along from sphere to sphere, with no hope of respite, venturing into the somber regions of the human spirit, without ever leaving the exquisitely gilded frame of perfect, limpid beauty.” Alain Altinoglu directs this now legendary production by the Austrian director and filmmaker Michael Haneke.

L'Histoire de Manon (Ballet) Live from Opera De Paris Jules Masssenet
Runtime:155mins       Rating:TBC

Inspired by L'Abbé Prévost’s legendary heroine, Kenneth MacMillan expresses his fascination for offbeat characters and dramatic subjects. The choreographer faithfully follows the novel’s plot and reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naïve Manon - more victim than architect of her fate. In Regency Paris, bourgeois society gorges itself on luxury and easy pleasures. Carried off in this whirlwind, Manon is unable to resist temptation and devastates the faithful Des Grieux in her fall. The choreographer constructs his ballet on a mosaic of extracts from Massenet, finding in the music all the drama, freshness and romanticism necessary for this grand fresco in dance. From crowded ball scenes to spirited, romantic, spirited pas de deux, Manon’s passionate existence propels inevitably toward the ballet’s sublime, yet tragic conclusion.
