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:
Mr. Kaplan will be replaced tonight by ‘I am Not a Witch’
Uruguay //2014 // 90 mins // Subtitled // Dir Alvaro Brechner
After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he’s found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. A potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr. Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, ageing and the drive for significance.
The Divine Order
Switzerland // 2017 // 96 mins // Subtitled // Dir Petra Volpe
Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a little village. She is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone – until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women’s right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.
