UK | 2020 | 95 mins | dir.s Stephen Warbeck & John Paul Davidson, with Ciarán Hinds and Stephen Dillane

An astonishing feat of contemporary film-making, The Man in the Hat is a beautifully fashioned odyssey of music, story-telling and silent comedy traversing the breath-taking landscapes of France.

Pursued by five angry men, a man in a hat (Ciarán Hinds) journeys through France in a Fiat 500 accompanied by a framed photograph of an unknown woman. Who is he? Why are they chasing him? And how can he shake them off?

Travelling North on his escape across the mountains, gorges and bridges of France, he comes face to face with the vivid eccentricities of an old country on an old continent, whilst trying to evade the pursuers who are always, relentlessly, on his tail.

The screening at 7.45pm on 21 September will be followed by a Q&A with Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck, co-director John-Paul Davidson and Radio & TV presenter Francine Stock
