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:
Poland//2018//88mins//Subtitled// Dir Prawel Pawlikowski
Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story.

The story follows Laura, a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires, who returns with her teenage daughter Irene and young son to her hometown outside Madrid for a family wedding. The joyful reunion soon turns tragic when Irene is kidnapped and Laura is forced to come up with the ransom money without involving the authorities.
