Alien Nation  

Fabian’s Film presents a season of eight films exploring five subcultural themes: age, class, race, gender and disability. Though each film illustrates themes considered specific to a certain group, their narratives pinpoint the connections to issues which, as a society we can all identify.

+ Post-screening discussion with Age UK

Dir. Andreas Dresden, Germany, 98 mins, 2008, subtitled

On the surface, Inge is a happily-married woman in her mid-sixties with a devoted husband of thirty years and grandchildren to enjoy. However, her calm and predictable world is turned upside down when she meets Karl, an older man she finds herself drawn to, and immediately they embark upon a passionate affair.

In spite of her feelings of guilt and betrayal, Inge finds herself unable to let go of the joy she has found. Seeking forgiveness and understanding, Inge is compelled to confess to her unsuspecting husband – with devastating consequences. Cloud 9 explores fidelity, desire and love in the twilight years and subverts convention to present a brave account of young love in old age.

Post-screening discussion

The evening’s screening will be followed by a discussion with Corinne Bailey of Age UK on relationships in later life.
