St Neots film club

St Neots film club was started by Artist, and Neotist Melina La Firenze as a way to show arthouse, independent films from niche directors to a local audience, with the opportunity for discussion once the film has finished.

Films shown in this series are Human, by artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand, who spent three years collecting real-life stories in 60 countries from 2,000 men and women. Total Recall, written by sci-fi writer Philip K Dick, and one of the 100 best sci-fi movies of the  20th century, it cleverly explores the concept of altered states of consciousness.
