The Artist and the Model (2012) 105 mins minutes (sub)Director: Fernando Trueba, France
Set in rural France in World War II. A young woman becomes a nude life model for a famous but elderly artist. The two slowly share their understanding of life and art against a background of a wider world at war. A gentle film beautifully shot in black and white.

Silkscreen Film Society News
Welcome to Silkscreen
Details and trailers of films to be shown during our 2015/16 season which began on September 16th can be found via the "What's On" link at the top of this page.
Silkscreen Film Society is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers on behalf of its members. Set up in 2001 by a small group of enthusiasts, the Society now has well over 400 members and has established itself as the focal point for people in the area who want to see a wide range of the best films from around the world.
Chosen by a small team of members, films are selected because they have exceptional qualities of direction, acting or cinematography. Our programme runs from September to March and we have two showings, usually at 5.30 and 8.00 pm, on designated evenings.
Films are projected on state of the art digital equipment in a 250-seat auditorium in Macclesfield’s historic Old Sunday School, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.
