45 years and The Wave open and Art Mission on Friday


45 Years is a 2015 British romantic drama film directed and written by Andrew Haigh. The film is based on the short story "In Another Country" by David Constantine. The film was screened in the main competition section of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. Charlotte Rampling won the Silver Bear for Best Actress and Tom Courtenay won the Silver Bear for Best Actor. At the 88th Academy Awards, Rampling received a nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

The film takes place across six days, marked by intertitles. 

Five years after retirees Kate and Geoff Mercer had to cancel their 40th wedding anniversary because of his heart bypass surgery, the comfortably-off, childless, Norfolk couple are now planning to celebrate their 45th anniversary with dozens of friends at the Assembly House in Norwich. 

A week before the party, Geoff receives a letter from Switzerland telling him that the body of Katya, his lover in the early 1960s, has become visible in a melting glacier where she fell into a crevasse on their hike with a German guide over five decades ago...

Also showing: The Wave



The Wave (Norwegian: Bølgen) is a 2015 Norwegian catastrophe drama film directed by Roar Uthaug.

A small Norwegian village, called Geiranger, is threatened when a huge mass of rock tumbles into a fjord, setting off a huge 300 foot tsunami. With only 10 minutes to escape the approaching catastrophe, the villagers must rush to the mountains before the wave engulfs them all.

Norway is a rock slide prone area and The Wave is based on a rock-slide tsunami incident which destroyed a Norwegian town on 7 April 1934. Prior to that in 1905, a similar incident triggered a tsunami, and 31 years later, another.

All the actors in the film performed their own stunts, something the director said was "utterly nerve-racking."
