This Sunday
Special Screening of: Goldblatt

Directed by: Daniel Zimbler. 85min

South Africa through the eyes of David Goldblatt is an achingly beautiful place.

From his early photographs of Apartheid South Africa to the removal of Rhodes' statue from UCT, he has chronicled the country as faithfully as this film chronicles his life. Including interviews with Nadine Gordimer, Zanele Muholi and William Kentridge, the intimate portrait of man and country is captivating. We trail him in his campervan, capturing the essence and heartbreak of a land, and which invites deeper scrutiny.

Through frank and disarming revelations he shares his views on faith, fear, death and desire. This is a film which invokes a need to see as Goldblatt sees, feel as he feels.

From 1 August.
The Fun's Not Over, The James Phillips Story

The winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best South African Documentary at this year's Encounters Documentary Film Festival returns for an extanded run at The Bioscope.

Directed by: Michael Cross / Documentary. 101min.

James Phillips, who died aged 36 in July 1995, was a composer, musician, bandleader and the voice and conscience of a generation of white South Africans. His Afrikaans alter ego Bernoldus Niemand’s 1983 single, “Hou My Vas korporaal” (“Hold Me Tightly, Corporal”) became an anthem of the End Conscription Campaign and spawned “alternative” Afrikaans rock music and the Voëlvry movement. In 1985, with his beloved Cherry Faced Lurchers, he recorded the gut-wrenching “Shot Down” that addressed both white privilege and the violence of the apartheid state. James Phillips’ legacy is that of one of this country’s most aware, articulate and passionate artists. He was a genius, a satirist, a poet and probably one of the most accomplished songwriters that South Africa has ever produced. “The Fun’s Not Over” tells James’ story in his own words and through the voices of journalists like Max du Preez, satirists Zapiro and Pieter Dirk Uys, his musical collaborators and label-mates like Koos Kombuis and Vusi Mahlesela, contemporary artists like Jack Parow and his friends and family.

"Brilliant...A happy-sad masterpiece" - Gus Silber, Journalist
"A Magnificent piece of work" - Murray Le Vita, Network24
"A haunting celebration" - Andrew Worsdale, Filmmaker
"A powerful document" - Charl Blignaut, City Press
"An incredible story, beautifully told" - Erns Grundling, Author

From 9 Aug


This Women's Month, The Bioscope is proud to screen this seminal documentary about the extraordinary life of Women's Rights lawyer and cultural icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Directed by: Betsy West, Julie Cohen / Documentary. 96min

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.
