Films at Heart is a not-for-profit group run by volunteers. Members and non-members are equally welcome. We are part of Headingley Development Trust.
We screen contemporary independent films from around the world that you may have missed the first time round or that had only limited exposure.
Films at Heart screens on the second Tuesday of every month September to July. Check our programme on HEART’s ‘What’s On’ listing pages.
Films start at 8pm and tickets are available on the door from 7.30pm on screening nights and are priced as follows:
USA // 2018 //85 Mins // Dir Jonah Hill
In 1990’s Los Angeles, a 13-year-old spends his summer navigating between a troubled home life and a crew of new friends he meets at a skate shop.
Jonah Hill’s remarkable directorial debut gained a clutch of nominations and wins at film festivals around the world earlier this year.
UK//Chile//2018//96mins//Part subtitled// Dir Felipe Bustos Sierra
This heartfelt documentary is about the decency and moral courage of a group of Scottish workers and trade unionists at a Rolls-Royce factory in East Kilbride. The men downed tools refusing to work on Chilean Air Force parts from 1974-78, due to the atrocities carried out in Chile by the Pinochet dictatorship that had toppled the democratically elected socialist government.
Denmark//2018//85mins//Subtitled//Dir Gustav Moller
Police officer Asger Holm answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. When the call is suddenly disconnected, the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins. With the phone as his only tool, Asger enters a race against time to save the endangered woman. But soon he realises that he is dealing with a crime that is far bigger than he first thought.
Israel//France//2016//96mins//Subtitled//Dir Maysaloun Hamoud
Three young Palestinian women, living in liberal Tel Aviv, struggle with the rule-bound Arab world and the inequality of Israeli society and their desire to free themselves. Away from the constraints of enforced tradition, they find themselves ‘in between’ the free unfettered lives they aspire to lead and the restrictions imposed on them by a blinkered society.
