Deaf Conversations About Cinema: The Report


Please note: This event took place in Nov 2019

Director Steven Soderbergh's new film is a searing political thriller about the U.S Senate's real life investigation into the CIA's use of torture post 9/11. The 16:40 screening on Mon 18 Nov will feature Descriptive Subtitles and an introduction from Thea Berry, Watershed’s Cinema Producer followed by a post-show discussion with audience members, both of which will have simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation.

Daniel Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) with delivering a definitive report on the "enhanced interrogation techniques" the nation's top intelligence agency adopted after the 9/11 attacks. Jones' relentless pursuit of the truth, over half a decade, leads to explosive findings that uncover the lengths to with the CIA (and the White House) went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public.

Brimming with authenticity, writer/director Scott Z. Burns nods to the politically conscious thrillers of the 1970s whilst delivering a fresh, incredibly timely feat of storytelling that is deservedly receiving major Oscar® buzz.

Join us in the Café & Bar from 18:45 for an informal discussion, which will include BSL interpretation. You’ll receive 10% off drinks with your cinema ticket – so grab a glass and let us know your thoughts about The Report.

NB: The DS screening of The Report on Mon 18 Nov starts at 16:40 – we have also confirmed a DS screening of The Report on Sat 16 Nov at 13:30 so that if you can’t finish work in time to get to Monday’s early screening and can make it to the matinee on Saturday you can still join us in the Café & Bar from 18:45.
