Deaf Conversations About Cinema: Mid90s

Talk

Please note: This event took place in April 2019

Jonah Hill makes his directorial debut with this spiky coming-of-age story set in 1990s Los Angeles about a teenage boy who finds his scene when he meets an eclectic group of skateboarders.

The 18:10 screening on Mon 15 April will include Descriptive Subtitles and a short introduction which will feature simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation. Following the screening please join us for a post-show discussion with other audience members. The post show discussion will take place in the Café/Bar and will feature simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation.

Stevie (Sunny Suljic) is an awkward LA teen who escapes his home life to find solace in a group of skate punks who take him under their tattered wings. His new friends are older, more experienced, and guide Stevie through their rituals and routines as they skate, smoke, chase girls and talk nonsense around the suburbs of LA, thrusting him into exciting - but also ever-scarier - situations...Set to a brilliant soundtrack of '90s rock and rap, Mid90s is equal parts sweet and sour - an authentic, warm (never nostalgic) celebration of the era, of youth, and seeking refuge in friends (and skateboarding).

Following the screening please join us for a post-show discussion with other audience members. The post show discussion will take place in the Café/Bar and will feature simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation.
