      The New Yorker calls her ‘one of the most distinctive guitar players of her generation’, while NPR refers to her as among ‘this era’s most powerful players', Marisa Anderson is a master of lovely melancholy. Classically trained, she honed her skills playing in country, jazz and circus bands, Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her deeply original work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country music, re-imagining the landscape of American music.

      Anderson’s discography includes five solo records and multiple collaborations. LOST FUTURES (2021), is a collaboration with guitarist William Tyler. In 2020 Anderson released THE QUICKENING with drummer Jim White (Dirty Three, Xylouris White). Anderson is sought after as a collaborator and composer, contributing to recordings by Matmos, Tara Jane O’Neil, Beth Ditto, Sharon Van Etten and Circuit Des Yeux among others, as well as creating music for short films and soundtracks. Her latest solo album, STILL,HERE, was just released to wide acclaim. Currently on tour with Godspeed You! Black Emperor, don't miss this very special intimate evening with an extraordinary artist.

      • Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN follows lifelong friends Pádraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Pádraic, aided by his sister Siobhán (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Pádraic's repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.

        Featuring some of acclaimed filmmaker Martin McDonagh's (Three Billboards, In Bruges) finest work and a pair of outstanding lead performances, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN toggles masterfully between comedy and tragedy; realism and fable. It manages to be both of the moment and completely timeless. A gut punch of a comic-drama that keeps finding new ways to land hard-hitting body blows, and it's easily one of the year's very best films.

      • From a mountain peak in South Korea, a man plummets to his death. Did he jump, or was he pushed? When detective Hae-joon arrives on the scene, he begins to suspect the dead man's wife Seo-rae. But as he digs deeper into the investigation, he finds himself trapped in a web of deception and desire. A subtle masterpiece from Park Chan-wook, braiding a heart-stirring tenderness into a Hitchcockian thriller, giving us one of the smartest, most satisfying murder mysteries in years. Winner of Best Director at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
