Penwith Film Society

Welcome to Penwith Film Society, showing the best new and classic cinema from around the world to audiences in West Cornwall.

Penwith Film Society is proud to have won "Distinction" in the Best Programming category at the Cinema 4 All Film Society of the Year awards, 2017. Congratualtions to the whole team.

 

And a warm welcome to our Spring 2018 season!

 

We continue this season at Newlyn Filmhouse. Many thanks to their staff for their continued help and support.

This season features as always a rich and varied array of films, somewhat more new releases than classics this time round. You may discern a (very broad) emergent theme to do with transmission and disjunction, the passing on of ideas and traditions through human culture, family, consciousness and in our relationship with nature.

You don’t need to be a  Penwith Film Society member to come along, you’re very welcome, but do please join us: it enables us to keep going, and you get a £1 discount on ticket prices. It cost £12 a year.

WILD STRAWBERRIES

Smultronställe literally means ‘wild-strawberry place’, but figuratively it is a uniquely special spot – a place or time of happiness. 76-year-old Prof. Borg (Sjöström) drives from Stockholm to Lund with his daughter-in-law (Thulin) to receive an honorary doctorate. On the long journey he recalls his past – his girlfriend Sara with whom he used to gather strawberries and who married his brother, and his own unsuccessful marriage. Through use of flashback the film creates a compassionate picture of a man facing up to the disappointments and sadnesses of an emotionally restricted life. In the tranquil dénouement Borg evokes his own personal smultronställe.
