BFI Southbank Guide Oct-Nov 2017

OUR PICKS Each month, we give you our top choices from the programme ‘HIDEKO TAKAMINE IS MAGNIFICENT IN NARUSE’S HEARTBREAKING STORY OF AMOUR FOU IN POSTWAR JAPAN’ JAMES BELL, SEASON PROGRAMMER Floating Clouds (p53) WELCOME! Taking the driver’s seat of BFI Southbank has been a thrilling ride. Fitting then, that we’re paying a blockbuster tribute to the thriller as my Head of Cinema and Events tenure begins. I now have a much keener respect for the quick wits of Roger O Thornhill in North by Northwest, Clarice Starling’s intuition in The Silence of the Lambs and the nitroglycerin transporters in The Wages of Fear – three classics set for a BFI re-release this month. Feeling a big thrill proves we’re alive. But if you need convincing, come along to a whole day’s exploration of this heartstopping genre on 11 November when you can sample talks, films, music, immersive games and storytelling. And once you’ve had your fill of over 40 international film and TV thrillers, including Indian, African and Russian offerings, you can lose yourself in a sublime collection of Japanese melodramas or our popular Big Screen Classics. There’s even a chance to catch Wim Wenders, Lee Child and singer Grace Jones live on our stage. We’ll provide the hula hoop. Gaylene Gould Head of Cinema and Events
