Monday 5 March at 2pm, 12 Years a Slave

Oscar winning true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom.  In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.  Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity.

Thursday 15 March at 2pm, From Scotland with Love

Made entirely of Scottish Film Archive a journey into our collective past, explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration work and play.  Ordinary people, some long since dead appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role.
