A Bunch of Amateurs

Wednesday, April 26, 6 PM at Landmark Grand 10

Audience members may relate to this documentary about the efforts of a British filmmakers club to remain viable in the face of a changing environment and evolving technologies.  (Dare we mention the popularity and threat of Tik Tok?) The club’s cinema ambition extends to replicating the opening scene of the classic Oklahoma! with an 80-year-old Yorkshireman who’s never ridden a horse. Beyond the simple joy of watching British eccentrics at play, we see the importance of maintaining enthusiasm right up to the final hurdles. This film captures the Bradford Movie Makers “with honesty and a grounded style, transporting you into their small but hugely enthusiastic world.” Rebecca Cherry, Film Carnage

UK, 1 hour 35 minutes
