Moonlight (Scottish preview screening)
GFT is delighted to host exclusive Scottish preview screenings of Barry Jenkins' Golden Globe winning drama Moonlight. See the film ahead of UK Release on 17 February.
A truly lyrical and unique piece of filmmaking, Barry Jenkins’ second feature follows Chiron through three stages of his adolescence, as he discovers his identity and sexuality in 1980s Miami. Ostracised by his peers because of the way he walks and talks, a pre-teen Chiron grapples with queerness in an environment where it is simply not an option. As we see Chiron grow, we see his desires force his life in unexpected directions as Jenkins buckles traditional ‘coming-of-age’ techniques to instead slowly reveal an impressionistic tale of sensuality, pain and raw emotion.
Specially commissioned programme notes will be available.
