ELFs July film: Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Dear Film Fans,

it was so nice to see you again last week at “Mrs Lowry & Son” back at Alte Gerberei. Special thanks to Platform 2, who performed some songs live before the movie. They will also be there on July 23rd …

Our July film is WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE;  the story of Bernadette, an “architect on the verge of a nervous breakdown”.

More news soon …

Pictures of Matchstick Men

We still owe you some infos about Laurence Stephen Lowry … the English artist whose life is portrayed in our next ELFs film.

L. S. Lowry (1887 – 1976) had his very own style of painting, he used only few colours and his figures were often referred to as “matchstick men”. His motives were scenes of life in the industrial districts of England; landscape and portrait works were found only after his death.

All in all Lowry made about 1.000 paintings and over 8.000 drawings.

Lowry holds the record of “rejecting the most number of British honours”. Most of his work is displayed today a gallery in Salford, called “The Lowry”. It was opened in the year 2000 and hosts around 400 L. S. Lowry’s works.

He was also referred to in popular culture, e.g. “Pictures of Matchstick Men” is the name of Status Quo’s first hit single.

See more about Lowry’s interesting biography on this Wikipedia link.

A film with “an appealing old school charm”

Dear Film Fans,

it’s nice to see you again at the Alte Gerberei, for another movie night with a film in English, some drinks from the bar, live music before the film, all as usual.

“Mrs. Lowry and Son has an appealing old-school charm and two performances that make it worth seeing. It addresses some well-explored issues of parenthood, living up to parental expectations vs. following your own path, and following your dreams. …” says Alex Saveliev in his review of Mrs Lowry & Son. See the full Filmthreat article here.

L. S. Lowry worked as a rent collector by day, at night he followed his true passion: painting. The film portrays Lowry’s life at a time before he became famous for his art.

More background details will follow in a few days – we hope to see you next Thursday!

COVID-19 Update

ELFs_Logo-Covid-19 As we wait for some kind of government timetable to plan any of our future ELFs film evenings (in whatever form is safe), the Alte Gerberei in St. Johann stands empty and therefore slowly slipping more and more into debt.

The MuKu team have been working hard behind the scenes to try to save this drastic situation and have started a Crowdfunding campaign to keep the wolves at bay – for now.

Check it out at www.muku.at.

You can also help by a direct donation at:
https://www.startnext.com/zukunft-muku

or simply Sharing/Liking their social media sites:
https://www.facebook.com/muku.at/
https://www.instagram.com/muku_st.johann/

or you can simply tell everyone about this – good old fashioned word of mouth still works, with social distancing of course 😊.

We are really looking forward to when we can safely spend a cinematic evening together once again – It’ll be a real celebration – Cheers! ELFs
