After over two years away, Broomhall Community Cinema is back! Based in the Broomhall Centre, the volunteer-run group brings to the screen films chosen by members of the public. For May 2022, it's the beautiful Leave No Trace.
Based on a true story, Leave No Trace follows a father and his teenage daughter who have spent years living off-the-grid in the forests outside Portland, Oregon. But their life in the wilderness is brought to an end when they are arrested by park rangers, and forced to return to “civilization". Father Will, a military veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, struggles to readjust to the life he chose to leave behind.
Featuring a stunning breakout performance from Thomasin McKenzie, Leave No Trace is a tender and deeply humane story about the strength of people's connections to each other and to nature. It was released to universal acclaim, and is the most reviewed film to hold a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Every audience member will receive a free mini zine about the film. There'll also be a brief intro talk about the film before it begins.
Before Leave No Trace, there'll be a screening of The Spring, a short film directed and edited by local artist Madeline Shann. The Spring is about community, belonging, and our place in the natural living world.
Doors open 6:30pm
The Spring starts at 7:15pm
Leave No Trace starts at 7:30pm
There are a limited number of free tickets available for each Broomhall Community Cinema screening – email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to request one.
