Screening: A Separation at Small World Cinema Club at Foundation Coffee House, Manchester, 8 January 2019, from £3 - Book now

Iran has proven to be one of the hotbeds of world cinema over the past couple of decades, with films by the likes of Jafar Panahi, Ashgar Farhadi and the late Abbas Kiarostami impressing year after year. It’s Fahradi who gets the Small World Cinema Club honour this January though, with a screening of his 2011, Oscar-winning film, A Separation. The drama, about a crumbling marriage in contemporary Iran, is an accomplished, deliberate piece which captures both the psychological complexities of its characters and the intricacies of the society which binds them.

Small World Cinema Club prides itself on its small, social events held at Foundation Coffee House in the Northern Quarter. There are seats for around thirty people, so you’ll want to book fast, but the intimate club-like setting is meant to foster community and attendees are encouraged to stick around to discuss the film afterwards. Doors are at 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start, making Small World Cinema Club the perfect post-work social activity for those of you looking to switch gears in the evening.
