HIADS Film Showing:

The Prison

Premier of this film by Alistair Harris

A modern day take on the Stanford Prison Experiment, "The Prison" explores the extent to which our behaviour can be manipulated by the environment in which we find ourselves. The film shows the experiences of 10 young men as they participate in a psychological study in which they are plunged into a fake but nonetheless hostile prison environment, whereby half are labelled guards, and half are labelled prisoners. However after just a few days of the guards and prisoners settling into their new roles, the experiment goes horribly wrong.

This is a 40 minute film by Alistair Harris which was supported by HIADS members, some of whom appear in the film.

Spider's Web

by Agatha Christie

Clarissa is given to daydreaming. "Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?", she says. And, of course, that is exactly what happens.
She discovers the body of Oliver Costello (the boyfriend of her stepdaughter Pippa's mother) in her drawing-room. Then Clarrisa needs to dispose of the body before her husband comes home with an important foreign politician, so she persuades her three houseguests to become accessories and accomplices.
But before they can effectively get rid of the body, an inspector suddenly arrives to investigate the murder. Who called him? Mildred Peake, the house’s jolly-hockey-stick gardener also gets involved in trying to solve the mystery.

HIADS Film Showing:

All is lost

Starring: Robert Redford.

Academy Award winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, an open-water thriller about one man’s battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

Code of Love Present

Code of love

The Code of Love is an exciting new musical written and composed by local girl, Louise Helyer, and based on the book "The Code of Love" by Andro Linklater. The musical was premiered in August 2013 to rave reviews.

It tells the story of how in 1939, Pamela Kirrage, met Donald Hill, an RAF pilot. After a golden summer of courtship, they became engaged. In September, with Britain now in conflict with Germany, Hill was transferred to the Far East to defend Hong Kong. Sensing that he was caught up in the sweep of great events, he begins a diary in an old school exercise book. However, officers serving abroad were forbidden to keep such records, so Hill devised a secret code that transformed his words into numbers.

When Hong Kong fell to the Japanese and Hill was captured and sent to a prisoner of war camp, he took his diary with him. The Donald Hill who returned from the war, after four brutal years of incarceration, was a dramatically changed man. Though he and Pamela married quickly, once the relief and emotion of their reunion had subsided it was obvious that Donald had been scarred deeply by his experiences. Eventually, tortured by savage flashbacks, he was confined to hospital. Pamela had always known that the numbers in the school book were a code and that somewhere within the lines of figures she would discover the key to understanding Donald's mental collapse.

The Code of Love is an unforgettable love story.

The code was finally deciphered 10 years after Donald’s death by Dr Philip Aston of Surrey University, Guildford.

HIADS Film Showing:

Blue Jasmine

Starring: Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins. Directed by Woody Allen.

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.

Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr. Flicker (Michael Stuhlbarg).

Feeling that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al (Louis C.K.), a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight (Peter Sarsgaard), a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style.

Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Delicately portrayed by a regal Cate Blanchett, Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall. Woody Allen's new drama Blue Jasmine is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don't want to see.
