Part of the 'A Cinematic Odyssey: Postcards from Europe' strand.

One of the most transformative cinematic experiences that cinema has offered us in recent times.

French director Céline Sciamma returns to the big screen after the poignant and beautiful Portrait of a Lady on Fire with this radiant tale. Crafting a mysterious and delicate exploration of childhood and grief.

After the death of her beloved grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) meets a strangely familiar girl her own age in the woods.

Instantly forming a connection with this enigmatic new friend, Nelly embarks on a fantastical journey of discovery which helps her to come to terms with her loss.

The film will be introduced by Dr Paul Sutton, who will stay for the end of the film for a post-screening discussion in the front-tier of the downstairs seating area.
