Film Club

Meetings are held every third Wednesday of the month* at the Two Chairmen, 39 Dartmouth Street, SW1H 9BP, at 7 pm. Nearest tube stations are St James Park (3 mins) and Westminster (8 mins) There is no charge, as the landlady of the Two Chairman kindly allows us to have the room for free, but we would ask that you buy at least one drink.

In something of a new departure for the film club, over 2019 and 2020 we will be showing the ten one-hour films that make up Dekalog, inspired by the Decalogue or Ten Commandments, as they are more usually known in English. 

The films do not correspond exactly to the commandments, and though each film is independent, most of them share the same setting in Warsaw in the late 1980s, and some of the characters are acquainted with each other. Each short film explores characters facing one or more moral or ethical dilemmas.

As we realise that this is not going to be everyone's cup of tea we are not going to run the whole series en bloc, but alternate them with other films.

* Except for March, where the Two Chairmen is not available on the third Wednesday.
