WHITBY Film Society will get the new year off to an award-winning start when audiences can see How I Ended This Summer at Whitby Coliseum on Thursday.
This winner of the Silver Bear at last year’s Berlin Film Festival is a beautifully shot and gripping film - a superbly acted two-man Russian drama of enormous power and subtlety.
The two meterologists are isolated at a remote polar station on an Arctic island taking readings from their radioactive surroundings.
Sergi is the seasoned Soviet-era professional with a sense of duty and sacrifice while Pavel is a callow youth on a temporary college placement.
How I Ended This Summer starts at 7.45pm. Admission is £5.
