Alexandra

What war does to people’s humanity and how, without trust, touch and intimacy, we’re lost.

Linha de Passe

An outstanding realistic drama that shows these people’s ordinariness, strengths and weaknesses, and never idealizes or diminishes them.

Time and Winds (Bes Vakit)

A beautiful contemplative immersion in the children’s sense of the immensity of time and events. Written and directed by Reha Erdem

El Baño del Papa (The Pope’s Toilet)

A film about the Pope’s toilet. Directed by Enrique Fernandez and Cesar Charlone

My life inside

A masterful piece of film-making that leaves the audience gasping at the injustice of a 99 year sentence for a Mexican ‘illegal’ migrant following the death of the child she was minding

An island calling

An explosive mix of politics, religion and sexuality explored through the life of a gay couple in Fiji

Kids and money

The horrors of the attitudes towards money of Los Angeles 12-16-year-olds

Letter to Anna: the Story of Journalist Politkovskaya’s Death

The story of one journalist who tirelessly exposed its horrors and manipulation by the Moscow political class.

Chocolate City

A wonderful documentary that tells the story of 400 families who were forced from their housing project in the shadow of Capitol Hill, Washington DC, by speculative development.

Killer of Sheep

A beautifully composed episodic study of Stan, a slaughterhouse worker, his family, friends and community.

Couscous (La Graine et Le Mulet)

Kechiche, like Fatih Akin, the Turkish-German film-maker, shows us how the lives of migrants and their children straddle cultures, and, like Akin’s Head-On, Couscous is passionate and earthy.
