Paterson 15

Jim Jarmusch, USA, France, Germany, 2016, 118m.

The screening will be preceeded by poetry readings surrounding the idea of place or origin, written and performed by Labeja Kodua, buitumelo and Jordan Blanchard.

Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey - they share the name. He's also a poet, recording his daily observations and thoughts in the form of beautiful prose. Paterson thrives on routine: he drives his bus route, he goes home for dinner with his wife Laura, he walks his dog, he visits his local bar for one beer. By contrast, Laura's world is ever-changing, with new projects and ideas striking her daily. During the course of one fateful week, Paterson experiences both triumph and disaster, and finds inspiration from the most unlikely source.

This screening will be followed by a members' only Creative writing workshop. As spaces for the workshop are very limited, tickets need to be booked in advance. See the event page for full details.
