A great crowd for our first French film of the year last week although it got a bit squeezy in the foyer.

Don’t forget you can book online <http://www.centre-of-contemporary-arts-cairns.com.au/events/film.php> (no we don’t charge extra) and skip the ticket queue if you print your proof of purchase.
That way you’ll be able to get into the bar queue faster:)

There’s five more French Films coming up at the Alliance Francais de Cairns French Film Festival on the May 1-3 weekend.

We’re off over the border this week to Spain for a 60”s nostalgia road movie.
I think you’ll enjoy the trip.

Our April/May screening program is available for download ( pdf) now here <http://endcredits.org.au/PDFnews/2015/1504_lscape_newsltr.pdf>.

LIVING IS EASY ( WITH EYES CLOSED)  <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uO1jXG38XbM>
SPAIN (M) 108mins

Inspired by true events, writer/director David Trueba’s multi award-winning box office smash LIVING IS EASY (WITH EYES CLOSED) is a buoyant and heartfelt comedy set in conservative, Franco-era Spain, about a free-spirited English teacher’s quest to meet his idol, John Lennon, and the inspirational effect he has on two young people who share in the journey.

It’s 1966: Dedicated schoolteacher Antonio (portrayed by the brilliant Javier Cámara) is an obsessive Beatles fan – a passion that carries through to his classroom where he uses the lyrics from “Help!” to teach his pupils English. When he learns that John Lennon is filming Richard Lester’s absurdist comedy How I Won the War on the other side of the country, Antonio drops everything and sets out in in his tiny Fiat to find the production’s location, hoping Lennon can help him understand the lyrics to the newly released Revolver LP.

En route, Antonio adopts two hitchhiking runaways: Juanjo (Francesc Colomer), a 16-year-old boy fleeing his disciplinarian father, and Belén (Natalia de Molina), 20 years old, single and pregnant, heading home to face her mother. Together the trio travels across the sun-drenched Spanish landscape and learn more about each other – and themselves – than any had expected.

Fuelled by the affecting backbeat of surging Beatles euphoria, and accompanied by a glorious, award-winning original score by the legendary Pat Metheny, this funny and deeply affecting film is both a farewell to an era of repression and a welcome to a new age, capturing the spirit of both the ‘60s and of a nation aspiring to a better future.
