Cinema Paradiso Movie - Charcoal - this Saturday 6th July

For all our movie buffs, you will definitely want to come along and check this film out!


Charcoal - Bleakly funny and never predictable, with its stellar cast Charcoal is a comic portrait of just how heavy the weight of poverty can be on those whose souls it destroys. Brought to life through charmingly human flourishes such as little Jean’s inability not to flaunt his newfound wealth and Irene’s tentative flirtation with the idea of a better life, Markowicz’s debut feature is full of life and color, immersing us completely in the little dramas of everyday life which steadily yet subtly work to make us empathize with characters whose morality is often shady at best. It is in this sense as compassionate as it is funny; Charcoal is a gentle, loving portrait of poverty and desperation where moral judgement takes a back seat to the complex art of survival.


So come along on Saturday night, 6th July - doors open at 6.30 pm for mingling and movie starts at 7.00 pm. C4 Theatrette, Porters Promenade (next to Visitors Information Centre).
