Deborah Kerr stars in this adaptation of Henry James’s classic ghost story THE TURN OF THE SCREW as an emotionally fragile governess who begins to suspect the young siblings in her care are not as innocent as they seem. Critically regarded as one of the best psychological thrillers ever made and ranked by Martin Scorsese as one of the scariest films of all time. Watch this chilling and atmospheric haunted house classic in the grand surroundings of Pollok House and enjoy a delicious two course meal in the servant’s quarters.

Join us for an evening of film, discussion, food and music with this special refugee event presented in partnership with Refuweegee and Plantation Productions that puts a spotlight both on the refugee crisis and the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers, particularly in Govan in the Southside of Glasgow. We will screen short films TRANSIT ZONE (N/C-suitable for all, 35mins, 2015) & WELCOME TO GOVAN (N/C-suitable for all, 15 mins, 2016) and the films will be followed by a discussion and music. Food and paid bar available.
TRANSIT ZONE (N/C-suitable for all, 35mins, 2015) Directed by Fredrik Subei, this film gives an authentic insight into the life of refugees in the jungle of Calais. The filmmaker spent 3 months in the camp living with the refugees during the winter and follows Teefa who has fled Sudan and wants to start a new life in Britain but begins to question this after 6 months in the jungle. The result is an intimate and atmospheric creative documentary which goes far beyond the ordinary news report. TRANSIT ZONE was featured by I-D magazine as one of 8 recommended films to watch about the refugee crisis. Followed by a Q&A with Iman Tajik -the photographer who accompanied Frederik to Calais.

WELCOME TO GOVAN (N/C-suitable for all, 15 mins, 2016) Over the summer of 2016 the participants of Plantation Productions’ Well Said! created a welcome video for those who are arriving to Govan from far and wide. The videos have been translated by the participants into Tigrinya, Amharic and Arabic. The welcome video tells you where to go for support and advice in Govan and the surrounding areas.

What does it mean to film another person? How does it affect that person – and what does it do to the one who films? Documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson turns the spotlight on her own work reaching into the vast trove of footage she has shot over decades around the world- a boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home… This film combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry and is a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.
