Following a limited theatrical run in New York, Deptford Cinema hosts the first UK screening of the long-unavailable and recently-rereleased, autobiographical coming-of-age drama COLD WATER. Preceded by two short films by Olivier Assayas: Rectangle - Deux chansons de Jacno (1980) and Winston Tong en studio (1984).

"The visceral realism of the movie's narrative and the near experimentalism of its camera work come together effortlessly thanks to a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period. With one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film as a centrepiece, Cold Water is a heart-breaking immersion in the emotional tumult of being young.” — The Criterion Collection

4K digital restoration, supervised by director Olivier Assayas, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack.
