Amy

Carol

Synopsis From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna), ‘Amy’ tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse - in her own words. Employing extensive unseen archive footage, this modern and moving film shines a light on the world we live in.

Synopsis Set in 1950s New York, two women from very different backgrounds find themselves in the throes of love in ‘Carol’. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change.

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse instantly captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense - she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of modern era. Tragically, relentless media attention coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle saw her life fall apart. As a society, we celebrated her huge successes but were quick to judge her failings when it suited us. The talent that was initially her salvation eventually became the trigger for her disintegration. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol, an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.

Cemetery of Splendour (Rak Ti Khon Kaen)

The Lobster

Synopsis

Synopsis

In Khon Kaen a lonesome middle-aged housewife tends a soldier with sleeping sickness and falls into a hallucination that triggers strangedreams, phantoms, and romance.

A love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods. A desperate Man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live and falls in love, although it is against their rules.

“I write this film as a rumination on Thailand, a feverish nation. It will be the first film that takes place entirely in my hometown, Khon Kaen. It’s also a very personal portrait of the places that have latched onto me like parasites - the elementary school, the hospital, the library, the lake. Like the sleepers in this film, I shun the malady of reality, and together we take refuge in dreams of forever.” Apichatpong Weerasethakul Official Selection Cannes 2015 - Un Certain Regard Details Year: 2015 Running Time: 122 mins Director: Apichatpong Weerasethakul Producer: Simon Field, Keith Griffiths, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Charles de Meaux, Michael Weber, Hans Geissendoerfer Editor: Lee Chatametikool Screenwriter: Apichatpong Weerasethakul Directory of Photography: Diego García Principal Cast: Jenjira Pongpas, Banlop Lomnoi

Macbeth

Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans

Synopsis ‘Macbeth’ is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition, set in a war torn Scottish landscape.

Synopsis By 1970, Steve McQueen ruled Hollywood. Hot off the back of classics like ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ and ‘Bullitt’ he could now make the movie that was his life’s passion: McQueen’s experience on ‘Le Mans’ changed his life forever.

Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti)

Youth (La giovinezza)

Synopsis

Synopsis

Based on an early 17th century collection of fairy tales by Neopolitan author Giambattista Basile, the film weaves realistic and fantastical elements together in a dark exploration of classic tales.

Springtime. Fred and Mick, two old friends now approaching eighty, are on vacation together in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. The two friends know that their time is quickly running out, and they decide to face their future together. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Mick’s enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests, all of whom, it seems, have all the time that they lack. And while Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred, who gave up his musical career long ago, has no intention of returning to it. But someone wants at all costs to hear his compositions and to see him conduct again.

From the bitter quest of a jealous Queen, to an Ogre thwarting the love of a young princess, to a mysterious woman provoking the passion of a King, these stories weave the beautiful with the grotesque, creating a stunning and unique work of gothic imagination.

808

Attacking The Devil: Harold Evans and the Last Nazi War Crime

Synopsis

Synopsis

808 is a documentary film about the inspiring story of the Roland TR-808 drum machine. It’s the tale of the birth of electronic music, and how one small machine changed the musical landscape forever... by accident. It’s the story of a sound that has been embraced by the world’s top producers and performers, and has been name-checked on a whole host of hit records. Associated with numerous musical styles crossing both time and genre, its defining sounds are as relevant now as they ever have been. It defined hip hop and modern dance culture and its sound continues to deliver dancefloor-smashing beats today.

As editor of The Sunday Times for fourteen years, Sir Harold Evans proved to be the right man in the right place at the right time. In an investigative climate all too rare by today’s standards, Evans had the freedom and resources to allow teams of journalists to work on long-term projects, including the exposure of Kim Philby as a Soviet spy. Evans’ longest and most hard fought campaign was for the victims of Thalidomide. Originally developed by the Germans in World War II to counter effect sarin gas, post-war the drug was blithely prescribed by British doctors as an antidote to morning sickness, unwittingly leading to tens of thousands of children being born with serious defects. The Sunday Times’ fight to win compensation for their struggling families would take more than a decade, as Evans tenaciously pursued the drug companies through the English courts and beyond.

Synopsis

Synopsis

‘Brand: A Second Coming’ follows comedian/ author/activist Russell Brand as he dives headlong into drugs, sex and fame in an attempt to find happiness, only to realize we have all been nurtured on bad ideas and empty celebrity idols. Brand leaves Los Angeles to embark on a stand-up comedy tour about his own true icons - Gandhi, Che Guevara, Malcolm X and Jesus Christ - and transforms from addict and Hollywood star into an unexpected political disruptor and new found hero to the undeserved.

All Nora has to look forward to if she stays in 1950s Ireland are slick-haired rugby players, selling cigarettes one at a time at the local shop, and bad weather. So when a kindly priest, Father Flood, sponsors her to go to America, she packs her meagre belongings and heads to Brooklyn.

Chuck Norris vs Communism

Cinderella

Synopsis

Synopsis

In 1980s Romania, thousands of Western films smashed through the Iron Curtain opening a window into the free world for those who dared to look. A black market VHS racketeer and a courageous female translator brought the magic of film to the masses and sowed the seeds of a revolution.

The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella whose father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. When Ella’s father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel stepmother and stepsisters... But, when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a royal ball, might her fortunes begin to change? Will she go to the ball?

The Closer We Get

A Dangerous Game

Synopsis Karen’s mother Ann suffers a devastating stroke that brings her daughter back home when she least expects it. But Karen isn’t the only one who returns to help care for Ann in the crisis: Her prodigal father Ian - endearing and unfathomable and who’s been separated from Ann for years, also reappears. Armed with her camera, Karen seizes this last chance to go under the skin of the family story before it’s too late, to come to terms with the aftermath of the secret her father had tried - and failed - to keep from them all, and to find that Ann’s stroke has in fact thrown them all a life raft.

Synopsis A follow-up to ‘You’ve Been Trumped’, which takes up where the previous film left off. American billionaire property developer Donald Trump and other rapacious developers battle local heroes in Scotland in their effort to build luxury golf resorts that end up costing the earth.

Synopsis

Synopsis

An inspirational and occasionally heart-stopping true story of a group of friends from a working men’s club in Wales who decide to take on the elite ‘sport of kings’ and breed themselves a racehorse. Against all the odds, their young foal, raised on nearby waste-land, goes on to become a champion. Until one day disaster strikes…

Hollywood relies on Bruce Willis to save the world in Armageddon, but who are the real-life heroes seeking to save our civilization from the next major asteroid impact? Disaster Playground investigates future outer space catastrophes and the procedures to manage and assess the risks. The film follows the scientists planning the monitoring and deflection of hazardous Near Earth Objects and the real-life procedures in place in the event of an asteroid collision with the earth. Follow the chain of command that runs from the SETI Institute and NASA to the White House and United Nations and meet the people who are responsible from protecting us from a potentially devastating asteroid impact.

The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

Electricity

Synopsis

Synopsis

‘The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson’ confronts our worst nightmares of impending death and turns them upside down. It tells the extraordinary, yet universal story of legendary musician Wilko Johnson who, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given a few months to live, accepted his fate with uplifting positivity and embarked on a farewell tour, capturing the imagination of the world as he went. But like every good story Wilko’s has a damn fine twist in its tail. Two years later and confounding the odds, Wilko wakes up in a hospital bed, unexpectedly sentenced to live, having now to integrate those enlightened lessons learnt under sentence of death into the unexpected and ongoing future of his life.

When Lily O’Connor, a witty, sexy, searingly defiant Northerner with temporal lobe epilepsy and a traumatic past finds out that the brother she’s long thought dead could still be alive, she risks her life to go in search of him. An extraordinary hallucinatory journey, an “Alice In Wonderland” story for the modern day.

Synopsis

Four young people flee from London and set up a polyamorous commune in the country- choosing total isolation as an opportunity for an emotional, intellectual, and political hiding place. Strange rules and rituals help to loosen their inhibitions as, fighting cynicism and ghosts from the past, they move towards a deeply unconventional joy.

A portrait of one of Britain’s most beloved artists, David Hockney, with revealing contributions from Hockney himself and his friends and colleagues. “It’s been said that there was something of the holiday about David Hockney, that, despite personal loss, he sees the world with holiday eyes, as if for the first time. I wanted to capture this attitude without taking away the mystery and magic of a great artist.” Randall Wright

I Am Belfast

Synopsis

Synopsis

Michael Doyle is an anti-hero for our times: a natural predator and a complex mix of highfunctioning addict and corrupt police officer, always one step ahead of the law. As an influx of ruthless, power-hungry Albanian gangsters makes its bloody mark on London’s criminal landscape, Michael’s once assured grip starts to fail and his self-destructive behaviour begins to consume him.

“Belfast, it’s a city that is changing, changing because the people are leaving? But one came back, a 10,000 year old woman who claims that she is the city itself.” A unique film about an infamous place, with this 10,000 year old woman as our free spirited walking tour guide. Starting in the here and now, with the everyday, we move on to the dream life of the city, mapping the voices of women and the liminal spaces, the unnoticed and the unloved things about this place. But she also looks back and she sees the tragedy and the horror of what went before. She remembers everything…

The Knife That Killed Me 1st

1st

Synopsis The tragic tale of sixteen-year-old Paul Varderman’s downward spiral into knife crime. We learn of Paul’s untimely death at the beginning of the film and are then taken on a journey through Paul’s memories as he tries to make sense of how he came to be involved with Roth and his gang, and how he came to be in possession of the knife, the knife that killed him. Fear is the overriding emotion in the coarse, graffiti littered playground for Paul and his peers; fear of not fitting in, fear of being misunderstood and worst of all, fear of appearing afraid. This compelling story is brought to life in a truly original fashion - 100% CGI, with a unique and innovative visual style.

A Little Chaos

Synopsis

Synopsis

An epistolary feature film: a cinematic discourse between a British director Mark Cousins (the celebrated film maker and historian) and an Iranian actress and director Mania Akbari (famed for her work with Abbas Kiarostami and in her own right as a director) which extends the concept of “essay film” with startling confrontations in the arenas of cultural issues, gender politics and differing artistic sensibilities.

A female landscape gardener is awarded the esteemed assignment to construct the grand gardens at Versailles, a gilt-edged position which thrusts her to the very centre of the court of King Louis XIV. Can she overcome the challenges of this new and complex world, and the ghosts of her own past tragedy, to secure a future with the man she loves?

A unique journey into the minds of two exceptional filmmakers which becomes a love affair on film.

Love Hotel

Synopsis

Synopsis

A gentle black comedy about a confused, washed up film director, Emil, who is invited by a nascent state to make a national epic in an obscure Caucasus Republic ruled by an eccentric and corrupt dictator. When down and out Academy award-winning British film director Emil Miller receives an invitation to the Embassy of the Autonomous Republic of Karastan, little does he know that he will be embarking on one of the wildest journeys of his already diverse and colourful career.

Yet the special Fantasy or ‘concept’ love hotels like The Angel, that once boomed from the 1970s until a few years ago are now facing pressures from conservative lobby groups and rival chains, and many hotels are being forced out of business from a love hotel market that makes two times as much as Toyota Motors each year.

Orion: The Man Who Would Be King

Synopsis

Synopsis

A father and son live a reclusive lifestyle in the middle of nowhere. The man, a disillusioned mercenary, has his final target in sight - a gang of foreign revolutionaries who lay low in a nearby derelict compound. As the man closes in on his target the boy falls for the revolutionaries’ serving girl. Having spent his whole life in isolation the boy now discovers the warmth of friendship and the pleasures of something more. As father and son collide the boy is sent running, running in pain and full of betrayal, straight into the twisted embittered arms of the boy’s maternal grandparents, who have come to snatch and save the boy. Figuring out what is right and wrong, what is good and bad is a task for both the man and the audience.

Millions of Americans clung to the hope that Elvis Presley faked his death. For the executives at Sun Records that fantasy became an opportunity in the form of Orion, a mysterious masked performer with the voice of The King. But who was the man behind the mask? Jimmy Ellis, a singer was plucked from obscurity in 1978 and given a fictional identity, signed to Sun Records and thrust into the spotlight as part of the crazy scheme that had him masquerade as Elvis back from the grave. With an outlandish fictional identity torn from the pages of a pulp novel, the backing of the legendary birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, Sun Records, and a voice that seemed to be the very twin of Presley’s himself, the scheme – concocted in the months after Presley’s death, exploded into a cult success – and the “Elvis is alive” myth began. This is the story behind that story. Who was that masked man?

Paddington

Palio

Synopsis The comic misadventures of a young marmaladeloving Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home. He is discovered at Paddington Station by the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck “Please look after this bear. Thank you.”

Synopsis The Palio horserace in Siena isn’t a matter of life or death... It’s much more important than that. Twice a year the Italian city of Siena goes crazy for the oldest horse race in the world: the Palio. Not your average race: strategy, bribery and corruption play as much a part as the skill of the riders.

Sofia International Film Festival 2015 - International premiere

‘Palio’ explores the thrilling story of a rivalry between a young ‘outsider’ keen to break in to a dangerous but lucrative game and the corrupt ‘insider’ who has manipulated the city of Siena for a decade. Their passionate and dramatic battle is an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.

Planetary

A Practical Guide to a Spectacular Suicide

1st

Synopsis

Synopsis

The planet is in crisis. The problems we are facing at this crucial moment are deeper than climate change or social inequality – the fundamental cause lies in the way we see the world. ‘Planetary’ presents a stunning visual portrait of our Earth, taking us on a journey across continents: from the African savannah to the Himalayas, and from the heart of Tokyo to the view of our fragile planet from orbit. Through intimate interviews with a diversity of people, from NASA astronauts and environmentalists to philosophers and Tibetan lamas, the film shows that the solution to transforming our civilisation lies in an understanding that all life is inseparably interconnected, and that we cannot change the world unless we change the way we see ourselves, the world, and the wider cosmos we are embedded within.

A feel-good film about suicide! After many failed attempts at suicide, twenty-something Tom comes to the conclusion that he needs to think outside the box. He plans out the spectacular suicide. We follow Tom as he comes to grips with his reasons for his self-destructive nature, develops relationships with those around him and struggles to come up with the Spectacular Suicide.

Spooks: The Greater Good

Stand By For Tape Back-Up 1st

Synopsis

Synopsis

When a terrorist escapes custody during a routine handover, Will Crombie must team with disgraced MI5 Intelligence Chief Harry Pearce to track him down before an imminent terrorist attack on London.

Following the death of his grandfather, poet Ross Sutherland discovered an old videotape in his loft. On the tape were all the things they’d watched together: one-and-a-half films, a quiz show segment, and two sitcoms. Somehow they became the story of his life.

UK release May 2015 Details Year: 2015 Running Time: 104 mins Director: Bharat Nalluri Producer: Jane Featherstone, Stephen Garrett, Ollie Madden Co-Producer: Jane Hooks Editor: Jamie Pearson Screenwriter: Jonathan Brackley, Sam Vincent Directory of Photography: Hubert Taczanowski Production Designer: Simon Bowles Music: Dominic Lewis Principal Cast: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Jennifer Ehle

Inspired by the 1980s stoner mainstay of matching up ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with Pink Floyd’s album The Dark Side of the Moon, Ross draws out a series of stories from his life, synchronising them with the images on the tape. In the process, fragments of old films and TV shows are looped, destroyed, and re-built into an audiovisual meditation on memory, death and re-runs.

The Theory of Everything

They Will Have To Kill Us First

Synopsis The story of the relationship between the famous physicist Stephen Hawking and his first wife Jane.

Synopsis In 2012, jihadists took control of northern Mali. They imposed one of the strictest interpretations of sharia law in history. On 12 August they banned music – radio stations destroyed, instruments burned and Mali’s musicians faced torture, even death. This film follows Mali’s musicians as they fight to keep music alive in their country. Through personal stories we draw the audience into the human side of this ongoing conflict and ask the burning question: what does the future hold for Mali? The film culminates with the first public concert in Timbuktu post jihadist takeover and music ban.

The Boombox Project

Synopsis

Synopsis

Bill tells the story of how hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare leaves his family and home to follow his dream. It’s a tale of murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth. Can one man prove the quill is mightier than the sword?

Drawing inspiration from Lyle Owerko’s 2010 book ‘The Boombox Project: The Machines, the Music, and the Urban Underground’ the documentary explores how an iconic piece of machinery helped shape music and society on both sides of the Atlantic in the ’70s and ’80s, and examines its place in the rise of hip-hop and punk.

Synopsis What started as a home movie became a committed project when Josh and Devorah found themselves unable to conceive. An endearing if ironic journey gets serious when life-threatening complications emerge. Their relationship is tested to the brink as they confront birth, death, love and loss all at once. A creative documentary about becoming a parent... and how to reconceive yourself. Fiction director Josh Appignanesi turns the camera on himself and his wife as they undergo the ordeal of becoming parents in the era of man-children and assisted reproduction. Faced with fatherhood, Josh spirals comically into an envious career funk. But lifethreatening complications emerge - the couple are tested to the brink, confronting shattering losses. It’s a portrait of our generation going through a revolution in reproduction - forced to find new ways to think about ourselves as creative beings. We hear from Slavoj Zizek, John Berger, Darian Leader (20,000 Days) and Zadie Smith. Universal yet still taboo, it’s a film for everyone who has children, wants them, or still feels like a child themselves.

A Hundred Streets 1st In Post-production

Synopsis

Synopsis

Based on the novel by J. G. Ballard - London, 1975. A slick apartment tower rises above the Thames, the beginnings of what will soon become the world’s biggest financial hub. Dominating the landscape, it is simply called the HIGH-RISE... its address a mark of exclusivity.

Four people, four extraordinary stories. All lived out within a hundred London streets.

Its newest resident is Robert Laing, an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer. He is introduced to the seedy underbelly of the highrise by Wilder, a charismatic provocateur. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees. Life in the high-rise quickly descends into madness and violence, and Laing finds himself amongst the marauding hordes of bloodthirsty tenants who take over the building, floor by floor.

London, 1997; the British music industry is on a winning streak. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, The Verve rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing. 27-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where ‘no one knows anything’ and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public.

The story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement - women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state.

Set in the early 20th century, ‘Sunset Song’ begins with the suicide attempt of a poverty stricken woman in Scotland, broken by repeated childbirths, who kills herself and poisons her twin babies. The story follows one of the woman’s surviving daughters, Chris Guthrie, who must manage the farm after her mother’s death, and, after her father, who has had a stroke, becomes bedridden. But when love comes to Chris she must send her man off to the Great War and manage the farm in a land about to be changed forever by the onset of technology and war. How can we bear time, or subdue nature? We cannot. We can only endure...

Nineteen years ago Saar finally admitted to his conservative and religious family in Israel that he was gay and worse still – no longer believed in God. Expelled from the kibbutz he had grown up in, and rejected by his family, Saar fled to London where he attempted to build a new life. But when he is diagnosed with HIV his world falls apart and he decides to fulfil a lifelong ambition and joins the London Gay Mens Chorus. With the support of his new found brothers-in-arms he starts a reconciliation process with his family back in Israel. But he soon finds himself having to choose between his London family and the family he left behind.
