Details

The small Jewish community in “The Women’s Balcony” is a tight-knit one. When they talk, they don’t say “I,” they say “We". They are not just a community, they are a “congregation,” with all that that implies to the faithful. A huge box office hit in Israel, the film was written by Shlomit Nehama, and directed by Emil Ben-Shimon. “The Women’s Balcony” is an eccentric portrait of an already devout community suddenly under pressure from a super Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way. While the mood is that of a gentle and affectionate comedy, the film makes some extremely sharp points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.

KLCCC is an independent, not-for-profit organisation for film enthusiasts in the area. We aim to show a varied programme of films which reflect the tastes and interests of our members.

Films are screened at the historic St George’s Guildhall, King’s Street, usually on the second Thursday of the month. We programme two seasons per year, May-October and November-April, screening at least one film per month. Members pay a subscription of £30 for a season of films and can bring along two guests to each one. You may join at any time simply paying pro rata and new members are always welcome.

Day memberships are available on the door at £5 per person.
