Sound of Metal

Please note all screenings of this films will feature English captions. Ruben is a drummer in a heavy metal band. Music and sound mean everything to him. When he suddenly goes deaf, it jeopardises the delicate balance he had secured with his girlfriend and bandmate Lou, following a battle against addiction. Struggling to come to terms with his new reality, Ruben begins to explore the experience and culture of deafness, all the while considering medical procedures that could potentially restore his hearing. Darius Marder’s remarkable directorial debut, following his work as co-writer of Derek Cianfrance’s THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, uses ground-breaking sound design to immerse the audience into Ruben’s journey, whilst Riz Ahmed delivers an astounding performance in this inspirational tale of loss, recovery and resilience. **PLEASE NOTE ALL SCREENINGS STARTING AT OR AFTER 7PM WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A RECORDED 20-MINUTE Q&A WITH RIZ AHMED, PAUL RACI AND OLIVIA COOKE. THE Q&A WILL BE CAPTIONED AND WILL ALSO FEATURE AN ON-SCREEN BSL INTERPRETOR.
