Event Description

A film PREVIEW showing as part of the Borderlines Film Festival 

Arriving in Riparbella, Tuscany, in the early ’80s, Arthur, a melancholic British archaeologist, is fresh out of prison. Yearning for his dead lover, the daughter of a local aristocrat, he falls back in with a group of tombaroli (tomb robbers), a rowdy, Fellini-esque crew of twentysomethings who pilfer the area’s ancient burial sites for Etruscan treasures to sell on the black market. Continuing Rohrwacher’s project of mining and mythologising her country’s past, La Chimera creates its own wild, improbable fictional space, halfway between the dead and the living, and draws you into its spell.

Borderlines Film Festival 2024 is bigger than ever

Britain’s biggest rural film festival, one of the six largest film festivals in the UK, is set to take place from 1 – 17 March with a record number of screenings and events, just short of 300 in total. Borderlines covers a large area of country with 23 venues across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches, from mixed-arts centres and art deco picture palaces to remote village halls.

Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery, the Elmley Foundation and Hereford City Council, Borderlines offers audiences the opportunity to watch some of the very best new releases, including Oscar and BAFTA nominated titles like All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest, American Fiction and Anatomy of a Fall (winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes).
