The Super 8 Years12A
An intimate look at the life of French writer and 2022 Nobel Prize laureate Annie Ernaux, told through home videos shot by her then-husband Philippe between 1972 and 1981. A moving and probing documentary that provides a detailed account of Ernaux’s family life as well as an examination of the period when she first became a published author – and the subsequent effect on her marriage.
‘A slim film containing multitudes: a slice of life and time, richly grained with recollective detail. The images have a deceptive, universal simplicity.’
Danny Leigh, The FT
‘An astonishing personal document, as well as a spry social history of modern France.’
Mark Asch, Little White Lies

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!
