The Edge of Heaven (2008) 120 minutes (sub)Director: Fatih Akin, Germany
Director Fatih Akin was born in Hamburg of Turkish parents and his origins are reflected in this cross-cultural tale of estranged parents and children. The tightly constructed plot, which is full of echoes and parallels and fateful meetings, shifts back and forth between Bremen and Istanbul.

Recent seasons have seen more and more people coming to Silkscreen, many of whom have also joined as members. Last season’s record membership of 416 has already been overtaken, with 426 the latest count.
27th September 2013
The French comedy drama shown on 18 September has immediately established itself as a strong contender for season’s favourite, even as the very first film... Scoring an overall satisfaction rating of 96% .. that’s even better than what we think is our previous best, last season’s opener “Incendies”, which scored 91%. So all credit to the film selection committee for serving up another winner to start us off this year.

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 300 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 Heritage Centre, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.
