Lingui, The Sacred Bonds15
In a small village in Chad, determined single mother Amina works tirelessly to provide for her 15-year old daughter Maria. However, their lives are thrown in disarray when Amina discovers that Maria is pregnant and does not want to have a child. This beautifully shot and fiercely feminist drama explores the strength of bonds between women in a male-dominated society.
‘Breathtaking visuals and deeply moving story and performances. One of the best films of the year – astonishingly realised and lingers with you long after.’
Rogan Graham, Little White Lies
‘Fierce stabs of sexuality and violence cut through the stoic calm of Chadian film-maker Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s urgent drama of survival’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
