  • Playing at The Civic – Aug 30 – Sept 5

    A triple header of music changing lives in England.
    ‘Blinded by the Light’ is inspired by the life of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and his love of the works of Bruce Springsteen. Javed is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteeen, Javed sees parallels between the singer’s powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment. Springsteen’s melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams.
    And so, back by popular demand for a pair of screenings, ‘Yesterday’, finds Indo-English struggling musician, Jack Malik, in the interesting position of being the only one left who remembers the Beatles. Our last screening turned people away, so here’s another chance.
    To complete the triple, our Thursday film, ‘Wild Rose’, features a fresh out of prison Scottish woman who juggles her job and two children while pursuing her dream of becoming a country music star. She soon gets her chance when she travels to Nashville, Tenn., on a life-changing journey to discover her true voice.
    Also playing is a couple encore screenings of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, whose run was cut off too short.
