Now that we’re deep into the dark days of January, a cinema evening at the Arts Centre in Old Town could be just what you need to get through the month. On Wednesday 18th January, the Swindon Film Society opens its new season of World Cinema with the Spanish crime film “Marshland”.
Set in 1980s Andalucia, this expertly-paced thriller sees two city detectives investigate a series of killings out in the wilds of rural Spain. As the investigation twists and turns, and the two detectives test out their relationship, the film also examines a country shaken by political instability and corruption.
If you’re a fan of Scandi crime drama and fancy watching something set in much warmer lands, you’ll no doubt enjoy this satisfying and beautifully-shot story.
The film starts at 7.45pm, and the doors open at 7.15pm – with drinks available in the Arts Centre bar. We’ll be keeping you updated on upcoming films as part of World Cinema over the next few weeks, but if you’d like more information in the meantime, check out the Swindon Film Society’s Facebook page @swindon.film.society or go to their website www.swindonfilm.org.uk.
