Hong Kong Style comes to The Poly with a screening of one the genre’s greatest iconic screen legends.
Dir Jackie Chan – HONG KONG (1985)- 99mins (15)
Starring Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin
Following his disappointment with the US produced The Protector (1985), Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan wrote and directed this crime story vehicle to showcase his wide variety of skills in front of and behind the camera.
Dir: Lenny Abrahamson – USA – 118mins (15)
This film is an unparalleled celebration of the bond between parent and child. Ma has created a whole universe in ‘Room’ for 5 year-old Jack, where they have both lived for Jack’s whole life. But when Ma decides they have to escape, she risks everything to give Jack the chance to make a thrilling discovery.
Hitchcock’s supreme and most mysterious piece (as cinema and as an emblem of the art). Paranoia and obsession have never looked better. Voted the Greatest Film of All Time in a BFI poll.

Dir: Grímur Hákonarson – ICELAND – 93mins (15) S/T
Two brothers, who haven’t spoken to each other in 40 years battle to save their ancestral sheep stock following a disease outbreak in the secluded Icelandic valley where they live.
A marvel of dead pan comedy. Wonderfully wry, witty and poignant.
Winner of Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes and Iceland’s entry to the Oscars.
Paintings, Drawings and Prints that visually record the artist’s exploration of the Cornish part of the South West Coastal Footpath; inspired by and recording favourite walks and locations visited.
On my walks along the Fal/Penryn river bed at low tide I have been finding my materials.
Weathered wooden shapes and panels that are then transformed in the studio with the addition of related printed images, maps, diagrams of nautical equipment etc., and then the built shapes of boats and harbours.
