20-22 August, Glanusk Park, near Abergavenny
We return to Green Man for another jam-packed Friday night of movies old, new, borrowed but probably not blue. If for some reason you want to watch bands and other stuff, the full lineup is at www.greenman.net.
SHORTS AND ANIMATION
Includes a selection of kid-friendly cartoons from 3-4.30.
NUTS IN MAY (Dir: Mike Leigh, UK 1976, 80 mins)
Keith and Candice-Marie are wholefood enthusiasts from Croydon. Honky and Finger are Brummie bikers. Put them together on a Dorset campsite, and you have a recipe for one of the most fist-gnawingly funny comedies ever commited to television. Get back to your tenements!
SEPARADO! (Dir: Gruff Rhys & Dyl ‘Goch’ Jones, UK 2009, 86 mins)
In this colourful, surreal road-movie Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) takes the well-beaten trail from Wales to Patagonia, in search of poncho-wearing troubadour and distant relative René Griffiths.
*Update*: Rhys and Jones will both be present to talk about the movie afterwards.
SUNRISE (Dir: FW Murnau, USA 1927, 79 mins)
Murnau's first Hollywood movie, the tale of a simple country bloke driven wild by a sassy vamp from the big city. Looking as fresh now as it did 80 years ago, Sunrise will be accompanied by a beautiful new score written and performed by pianist Alcyona Mick with Geoff Hannan on violin and Jon Wygens on guitar.
A TOWN CALLED PANIC (Dir: Aubier & Patar, Belgium 2009, 75 mins)
This bizarre stop-frame spin-off from the Belgian TV show is a joy from start to finish, and this is one of the first chances to see it in the UK. Released in October.
Then on Saturday morning we'll be back for a family matinee show featuring Studio Ghibli's amazing PONYO (dir: Hayao Miyazaki, Japan 2008, 101 mins).
