Another highly rated film for Broseley and beyond
War in Georgia (not the American one), where local Apkhazians are fighting to break free from Georgia. An Estonian village between the mountains has become empty since almost everyone has returned to their respective homelands.
Only two men stayed: Ivo and Margus. But Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crops of tangerines.
In a bloody conflict in the miniature village, wounded men are left behind, and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. How do they all manage to handle it?
Admission £5.50 – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – cabaret layout
Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.

Broseley’s amateur dramatics group brings us another hysterically funny comedy from the Farndale Avenue suite, penned by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr
BroADS presented us with the ladies’ version of Macbeth a year or two back.
This one orbits around the efforts of the Townswomen’s Guild’s efforts to mount a sci-fi thriller: in their usual hopeless and hilariously funny fashion of course.
“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning”
The comedy itself is not a long one, but what a title!
Laugh yourselves silly at Broseley’s Birchmeadow. Tickets available from October 1st at Downes’s in Broseley High Street or via our website.
We can hardly wait until the BroADS crew heads out to the launch pad and the Red Planet. The countdown’s begun, and the excitement’s building.
Broseley’s amateur dramatics group, Directed by Kate Harris, brings us a hysterical Farndale Avenue comedy … another ACE by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.
“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning” is the title … nearly as long as the first act !
One wonders just how the Guild is going to make out this time – hilariously incompetently, no doubt.
Life in the impoverished slum of Katwe is a constant struggle.
When young Phiona meets Katende, a soccer player turned missionary who teaches children chess, she is captivated. Recognising her natural aptitude and the fighting spirit she’s inherited from her mother, Katende begins to mentor her … and she advances steadilly through the ranks in competitions & tournaments.
Her mother isn’t too happy initially, but she comes to realise that Phiona has a chance to excel. So she teams up with Katende to help Phiona fulfil her potential, to escape a life of poverty, and to save her family.
