Penwith Film Society

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

Welcome to the Autumn/Winter 2017 season!

We’re continuing the idea of having a theme to enable us to explore films contextually, both classics and recent releases. This season we look at the vicissitudes and joys of love, complicated, broken, courageous, beautiful. Love is examined not just in how individuals react and become different with each other but, in many of these films, how the erotic and amorous soul is shaped by societal expectations and pressures.

DINA

Documentary masquerading as romcom. Dina’s eponymous heroine is a 49-year-old woman with (as her Mother puts it) a smorgasborg of mental difficulties. Her fiance Scott has Asperger Syndrome and is not so keen on physical contact. The filmmakers (one of them has known Dina all his life) take an involving and poignant but unsentimental look at this romance during the days before and after the wedding.

Dina won the Grand Jury prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

“Alternately comic and tragic and best when its both at once, Dina humanizes a world of people who were only dehumanized because we allowed them to be.” David Ehrlich, indieWire
