CINÉ-REAL Citizen Kane 1941
This month CINÉ-REAL, a non-for-profit film club with the aim of bringing filmmakers and cineastes together, are screening a 16mm print of Citizen Kane at The Russet, Thursday 28th January 2016.
Citizen Kane is an American drama which follows the rise and fool of a publishing tycoon. It is described as a fresh, sophisticated and classic masterpiece.
CINÉ REAL began two years ago in East London, after Liam Saint-Pierre found an old super 8 projector lying in a bin. Seeing this as a sign from the cinematic gods he wiped off the used teabags and banana peel and carried it home. The projector looked in good condition, but Liam couldn’t get it to work. He remembered there was a shop in Hackney called Umit & Son that specialised in super 8 and 16mm film projection. The shop was run by Umit Mesut, a passionate, friendly, life long film fanatic. As Umit worked on the projector (free of charge) they talked about the beauty of celluloid and bemoaned the lack of places to watch film as film. Inspired Liam decided to set up CINÉ-REAL, a non-for-profit film club with the aim of bringing filmmakers and cineastes together, to enjoy a classic celluloid experience, along with promoting collaboration and discussion.
