Ventnor Arts Club is hosting a series of films this week.

Ventnor filmmaker David George returns with a double-bill of documentaries and a Q&A after each film, starting at 7pm tonight (15).

Samaritans, can I help you? looks at the charity founded over 60 years ago to give emotional support to those at risk of suicide.

Aspire is a film about the users and volunteers of the ground-breaking community hub based in the redundant Holy Trinity church in Ryde.

On Tuesday (19) Don Quixote by the Royal Ballet is screened live from the Royal Opera House at 7pm.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographs this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.

There is a screening of 120 BPM (15) on Thursday (21) at 7.30pm.

The lives of AIDS activists in early 90s Paris are reimagined in bold and vivid detail in this stunning and heart-wrenching drama from the writer of Palme d’Or winner The Class, Robin Campillo.

As the AIDS epidemic tears through their community, the members of ACT UP Paris are fighting for survival. While they battle against governmental apathy, pharmaceutical greed and public ignorance, they also go out partying, debate politics and, occasionally, fall in love.

Urgent and affecting, it’s a film about life, death, passion, tragedy – and, above all, the will to survive.
