Traversing the back-roads of the Southern United States, Southern Journey (Revisited) is both a music documentary and a road movie.
Set against the incendiary backdrop of the 2018 midterm elections,the film retraces the route of the "Southern Journey" song-collecting trip undertaken by Hastings folk icon Shirley Collins in 1959. Accompanied by a glorious soundtrack of blues and bluegrass, hollers and spirituals, the film explores the continuity between the civil rights-era setting of the original trip and the present day, and challenges long-held stereotypes about both black and white America along the way.

A message from our cinema director, Rebecca Marshall:
As we have been unable to operate at our previous full capacity since reopening, and with safety measures unlikely to be able to relax anytime this year, we are facing mounting building rental costs, film licensing costs and other overheads that were previously viable when we were open at full capacity.
Unless all our current season of films sell out, the cinema will be unable to continue into 2021 and will likely close in December this year.
With this in mind I make this plea to all to help sustain this much-loved community asset:
