Talkies Community Cinema: The Old Oak

Saturday 20 April 7.30pm

Waterhouse Hall, 77 Compton Road, Winchmore Hill, N21 3NU  

 

THE OLD OAK is a special place. Not only is it the last pub standing, but it’s also the only remaining public space where people can meet in a once thriving mining community that has now fallen on hard times after 30 years of decline.

TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner) the landlord hangs on to the Old Oak by his fingertips, and his predicament is endangered even more when the pub becomes contested territory after the arrival of Syrian refugees who are placed in the village without any notice. In an unlikely friendship TJ meets a curious young Syrian Yara (Ebla Mari) with her camera.

Can they find a way for the two communities to understand each other? So unfolds a deeply moving drama about their fragilities and hopes.
