The Bioscope - du 18/07/2017

Enjoy great cinema from around the world at The Bioscope.

Continues This Week

After two sold out screenings at Encounters 2017 and a sold out screening on Youth Day, The Bioscope is proud to be hosting a run of the seminal documentary, Uprize!

Directed by: Sifiso Khanyile 58min

The Soweto uprising of 1976 is well documented: students peacefully protested the mandatory inclusion of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction. By nightfall over 200 lay dead. The less well-documented ‘76 protest action by activists in Bonteheuwel, Langa and the Cape Flats, and student deaths, are the heart of this film. Personal reflections of struggle stalwarts Fatima Dike, Dr Mongane Wally Serote and Duma. Ndlovu consider the states’ brutal response, the influence of the Black Consciousness Movement and their disappointment with the current state of the nation. It’s a glimpse into 70s SA, the cost of the fight for education and freedom, and especially relevant 40 years later as university students take on the ANC government demanding free, quality education.

Returns this weekend
Deep Blue / Middle C

After sold out screenings at this year's Encounters Documentary Film Festival, 'Deep Blue / Middle C' returns for a limited run here at The Bioscope.

Deep Blue / Middle C (2017)
Directed by: Bryan Little. 60min

This psychedelic surf film emerges from the Elands Bay dustbowl like an LED encrusted crayfish. Acclaimed Fokofpolisiekar and African Cypher director (and two-time Encounters Audience Award winner) Little recruited musicians, sculptors, artists, a coastal forager, underwater wildlife filmmakers, conservation biologists, drone pilots – to spend 10 days and nights at a camp site where they surfed, created artworks, and worked with the local community, celebrating that coast and ocean. Surfing the line between fiction and non, this strangely surreal dreamscape is an invigorating dip into the stream of consciousness of an eccentric and wildly talented bunch.

Tickets R45
EVERY SUNDAY 11am - 2pm

Guy Buttery, Live at The Bioscope

South African guitar maestro Guy Buttery returns to The Bioscope for another unique and intimate performance. No stranger to the space, Guy has sold out all his previous performances here, so booking is essential. Special merchandise will also be on sale on the night.

For those that need any more convincing....
“Guy Buttery is something of a National treasure”, says South Africa’s leading newspaper The Mercury. As an internationally recognized musician, this multi-instrumentalist enjoys invitations to play sell-out performances all over the globe. The USA, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, and Italy have all welcomed him back year after year. However, to simply label Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has surpassed merely performing concerts to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity. Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home.
