A documentary that is as expansive as the 1300km long peninsula of Baja California itself, in which the land and surrounding ocean are the main characters, An Island in the Continent ranges from the poetic, the mythical, to the hard-hitting. Director Juan Pablo Miquirray says he had to “travel through water and mountains, islands, deserts and plateaus; meet its people, those born there and those who settled. I was not willing to leave any rock unturned”. His film contains multiple thematic and narrative dimensions to unveil the peninsula in all its complexity – its unique cultural history, quite unlike the rest of Mexico, its phenomenal natural beauty, and the threats posed by tourism and mining.
Dedicated to putting the fun back into going to a show or the cinema, the Brunswick Picture House has re-emerged — reimagined and better than ever. Presenting cabarets, live shows, films and a garden kiosk with a delicious menu & great coffee. Kiosk open 1 hr before every event! After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on this old theatre in March 2016 and it began a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning and internationally acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations LA SOIRÉE and CLUB SWIZZLE. Having survived the wreckers’ ball and the ravages of time, this iconic building’s revival has set the stage for a vibrant and charismatic mix of film, circus, live theatre and family-friendly entertainment. The Brunswick Picture House is a local landmark for the community, for people to meet, be inspired, gossip, laugh and be entertained.
