Hunt for the Wilderpeople screening 7.30pm Saturday 25th March

robbie griffith parkourWe’ve added a late addition to Saturday night’s films – the short  Choose Parkour. It stars 16-year-old Parkour prodigy Robbie Griffith, who runs, jumps and somersaults around Edinburgh’s city centre landmarks. Choose Parkour, also updates the famous monologue narrated by Ewan McGregor’s character Renton.

Our main feature is Hunt for the Wilder People. Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.
