Devil’s Freedom
The Mexican drug war is seen from a new angle in this gripping film that finds victims and perpetrators confronting us with their nightmarish stories. In the past five years, this barbaric war has claimed a staggering 100,000 lives. Where violence has become normalised, corruption endemic and life so cheap that it…[Read More]

 

 

 


 

The Florida Project
That The Little Rascals is an inspiration for Sean Baker’s magical, magnificent and madcap follow-up to Tangerine (LFF2015) makes perfect sense when you see this story of childhood, set against the backdrop of America’s failed economy.

Roller Dreams
Beneath palm trees and dusty pink orange sunsets, the rock stars of 1980s Venice Beach spin, glide and break-dance to R&B, hip hop and disco.

Thelma
Acclaimed filmmaker Joachim Trier switches gear for this supernaturally-tinged tale of a young woman’s macabre coming of age. Known for his trio of astute human dramas (Reprise, Oslo, August 31st and Louder Than Bombs), a horror film might seem a bold departure for Trier. Yet this subtle shocker is every bit the kind of…[Read More]

 

 

 


 

Five Fingers For Marseilles
A deftly-constructed, Western-inspired drama, whose thrilling and intensely raw tone is made more breathtaking by the stunning backdrop it unfolds against. The vast landscape of South Africa’s Eastern Cape, with its rugged rural terrain and surrounding mountains, provides the spectacular setting for this story of five young…[Read More]

 

 

 


 

Bad Lucky Goat
Two bickering teenagers are forced to put their differences aside when they accidentally hit a goat while running an errand for their father. Corn (Honlenny Huffington) and Rita (Kiara Howard) are in big trouble.
