We are so pleased to be collaborating with Cinemaattic, the platform for Spanish, Iberian and Latin American cinema in Scotland. Join us for this live projection of Jean Francois and the meaning of life (2018) directed by Sergi Portabella.
This event starts at 6.30pm, doors open at 6.00pm. The running time of the film is 1hr30 mins and we will start promptly at 6.30pm so please arrive on time. The bookshop is small and is accessed with six steep steps in front and regrettably has no wheelchair access.
A twelve-year-old existentialist kid runs away from home to meet his favorite philosopher, Albert Camus, not knowing he has been dead for fifty years. On his way, he finds love and rejection for the first time in his life.
