With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.

Black (18)

15 year old Mavela (Martha Canga Antonio) is a member of the Black Bronx gang who falls madly in love with Marwan (Aboubakr Bensaihi) a member of rival Moroccan gang the 1080s. Divided by race and with limited prospects in inner city Brussels, the young couple are forced to make a brutal choice between love and loyalty.

"Adapted from two books by Flemish author Dirk Brache. It is worth noting that nearly all the film’s role models (the concerned cops and the protective parents) are also people of colour. It’s not race that makes these people monsters, rather their behaviour is a reaction to the racism they feel directed against them, asserting a strength they don’t feel as outsiders"

CinemaItaliaUK presents:

Assolo
Flavia is 50 years old, and after two failed marriages and a complicated relationship with a married man, she is now single again after a very long time. Not an easy endeavour for any woman her age, and for her in particular, due to her pathological lack of confidence which causes her to constantly depend on the people around her: her two ex-husbands, her two sons, her tyrannical friends and her husbands’ new wives, seen as unreachable role models that she tries to emulate without success.

With the help of a wise and seraphic psychoanalyst, Flavia struggles regaining independence and self-confidence, tackling numerous driving tests and awkward approaches to auto-eroticism. 

Followed by Q&A with actor and director Laura Morante.

Go behind the scenes on the war on terror with these docs that look at two men defined by it: a journalist, and an accused terrorist. From supporting the Bosnian Mujahideen to being imprisoned in Bagram and Guantanamo, from the rebel training camps in Syria to the prison cells of Belmarsh in Britain, Moazzam Begg has experienced a generation of conflict. This is his first-hand account, a chronicle of the rise of modern jihad, its descent into terror and the disastrous reaction of the West.

The film is based on a recorded interview and is a fascinating insight into a man who has been detained in several countries on suspicion of terrorism without ever being convicted of a crime.

In August, 2014, a video of the public execution of American photojournalist James Foley rippled across the globe. That image challenged the world to deal with a new face of terror. And it tested one American family. Seen through the lens of filmmaker Brian Oakes, Foley’s close childhood friend, Jim takes us from small-town New England to the adrenaline-fueled front lines of Libya and Syria, where Foley pushed the limits of danger to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war.

Brilliantly constructed with unparalleled access, Jim is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion, and pain at the dawn of World War ISIS.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week

World Premiere event broadcast live.

February 9th, 1964, 8:12pm EST – after a brief commercial break, four young men from Liverpool step onto the Ed Sullivan stage, changing culture forever.

Seventy-three million people watched The Beatles perform that night, the largest audience in television history. But it is what the band did next that would introduce them to the entire world, permanently transforming the music industry and forever engraining them into the fabric of popular culture...

They went on tour. By the time the band quit touring in August of 1966, they had performed 166 concerts in 15 countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon their touring helped create, known as "Beatlemania," was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn't since.

This is the not-to-missed story of the band's exceptional touring years – an intimate portrait of the band, and a behind-the-scenes look at The Beatles on tour. Exploring the effect it had on their relationships, as well as their musical evolution, and looking at how they transformed the world of music, the film features interviews, unheard music and exclusive concert footage from the biggest band of all time.

Foxy Brown image

Foxy Brown (18)

Soul Jazz Records presents Blaxploitation Classic Films#1: Foxy Brown starring Pam Grier. Pam Grier is Foxy Brown.

Made in 1974, Foxy Brown is one of the quintessential Blaxploitation films. 25 years later Foxy Brown’s character became the basis for Quentin Tarentino’s Jackie Brown (which also starred Pam Grier after she came back from retirement). Pam Grier defines and subverts Blaxploitation cinema as a cinema of black female empowerment. Foxy Brown is a highly moral, sexual, stylish, violent character in a sea of immorality.

Enduring forced heroin injections, torture, prostitution and more in order to achieve her aims. She is never a victim and always wins her fights. Foxy Brown is out for revenge after her husband (an ex-policeman recovering from plastic surgery to alter his identity) is killed by hitmen for the local drugs mafia (headed by a white woman) tipped off after Foxy’s own drug-dealing brother (Antonio Fargas, later to play Huggy Brown in the TV show Starsky and Hutch) snitches on him. 

The film features the super-funky music of Willie Hutch (Motown Records), wicked clothes, car chases, sex, drugs and the righteous violence of Foxy Brown’s sweet revenge. Delivering the final line in the film to the female drug lord she simply states ‘Death is too easy for you, bitch. I want you to suffer.’

Foxy Brown is the first in a once-a-month season of Blaxploitation Cinema classics presented by Soul Jazz Records who will be introducing the films and also playing 70s funk and soul in the cinema bar before and after the main feature.

Reggae
Rarely seen and never released on DVD or VHS, British film maker and writer Horace Ove's Reggae was the first documentary to capture the early days of reggae's UK invasion and its growing popularity outside of Jamaica. In this mix of performances filmed at Wembley Arena in 1970 combined with footage shot in the West Indies and interviews providing social and political context, we are introduced to reggae as an art form that transcends music and becomes an articulation of a complex culture and a powerful medium for change. Featuring performances from the Pyramids, Pioneers, John Holt, The Heptones, Bob & Marcia, Laurel Aitken, Desmond Dekker.

Reggae in Babylon
In the late 1970's the young, gifted and black generation of Thatcher's Britain fused the Revolutionary zeal of Punk with their Rastafarian roots to create a new sound system that defined their struggle.

Pressure (15)

Uptown Rockers
Reggae Film Festival

Hailed as Britain's first black feature film, Pressure is a hard-hitting, honest document of the plight of disenchanted British-born black youths.

Set in 1970s London, it tells the story of Tony, a bright school-leaver, son of West Indian immigrants, who finds himself torn between his parents' church-going conformity and his brother's Black Power militancy. As his initially high hopes are repeatedly dashed - he cannot find work anywhere; potential employers treat him with suspicion because of his colour - his sense of alienation grows. In a bid to find a sense of belonging, he joins his black friends who, estranged from their submissive parents, seek a sense of purpose in the streets and in chases with the police.

An angry but sincere and balanced film, Pressure deals with the identity struggles that children of immigrants have to face and Horace Ove makes the most of his combination of professional actors and local non-actors from the from the streets of London.

Beyond Citizen Kane

Presented by Dirty Movies

Documentary denouncing the manipulative tactics of the Brazilian TV giant Rede Globo to the world. The film revealed that Globo has virtually a monopoly over the opinions of Brazilians, and it is far more powerful than its American counterpart Fox News. The group supported the military coup of 1964 and it grew because of its unequivocal support of the regime. Globo tried to prohibit the film for decades, and it has never been shown in Brazilian cinemas.

There is renewed interest in this exciting doc now because Brazil saw another coup earlier this year, with Globo again playing a pivotal role. Following the screening, Dirty Movies, film producer John Ellis and special guests will debate the modern relevance of the film.

The Spanish Civil War was a war of attrition. In 1938 the War had already worn out both armies and the spirit of the whole population. The National army however had the support provided by Hitler and Mussolini whereas the Republican army was ignored by the rest of Europe as these countries were more worried about a possible world war. It is in these conditions that, in an effort to stop the National army from crossing the river Ebre, the Republic called to arms thousands of youths aged 17 and 18. The story of some of these youngsters is narrated by Parrado with fresh enthusiasm and passion, all the while staying true to the facts.

Andrei Rublev (15)

Widely regarded as Tarkovsky’s finest film, ‘Andrei Rublev’ charts the life of the great icon painter through a turbulent period of 15th Century Russian history, which was marked by endless fighting between rival Princes and Tatar invasions. Made on an epic scale, it does not flinch from portraying the savagery of the time, from which, almost inexplicably, the serenity of Rublev’s art arose. The great set-pieces - the sack of Vladimir, the casting of the bell, the pagan ceremonies of St. John’s Night and the Russian crucifixion are tours-de-force of visceral filmmaking.

Fernando León de Aranoa's film revolves around the efforts of a group of aid workers to remove a corpse from a well in an armed conflict zone in the Balkans. What initially seemed like a relatively simple task turns out to be a nearly impossible mission complicated by bureaucracy and the stubbornness of the population in conflict. The director achieves, with remarkable skill, consistency between the different yearnings of the international, polyglot array of characters in a frustratingly complicated context. Like a Russian doll, the film is a drama inside a comedy, inside a road movie, inside a war movie....

When some of the miners plan a revolt against Franco's military men and the Nazis, and her sister starts helping Jews cross the border into Portugal, she must decide if she can remain neutral in a time of war. Inspired by real events in the early 1940s, Casal manages to also infuse the Galician mountains, forests and wolves with a mysticism and magic very much in line with the mythology of that part of Spain. Marian Álvarez, as usual, delivers a powerful and nuanced performance.

One hot summer’s day, Rose (newcomer Zamira Fuller) longs to see her mum (Beth Orton) but nobody will take her. Her father, struggling to cope, disappears to work, her sister waits to meet a boy on the local golf course and her brother is preoccupied at home communing with spirits online.

Taking destiny into her own hands she sets off alone deep into England’s forgotten edge lands to reach her. Rose’s odyssey provokes her disconnected, fractured siblings and parents into a poignant reunion to face their challenges together.

Light Years is the debut feature from BAFTA award winning film maker and photographer Esther May Campbell and features the acting debut of acclaimed singer/songwriter Beth Orton and a cast of young newcomers.

The Clan

Within a typical family home in a wealthy suburb of Buenos Aires, a sinister clan makes its living off kidnapping and murder. Arquímedes heads and plans the operations. His eldest son Alejandro is a star rugby player at a prestigious local club and the Argentine mythical national team Los Pumas. The son gives in to his father’s will and identifies possible candidates for kidnapping; his popularity shields him from suspicion. 

Based on the true story of the Puccio family, Venice Silver Lion winner Pablo Trapero’s thrilling film is full of suspense and intrigue - taking place in the final years of the Argentine military dictatorship and incipient return to democracy in the early 80s.

Film 1: A Good American (15)

Pair of documentarties about vast institutions doing things almost too staggeringly absurd to be true. Bill Binney was the best codebreaker in US history. After the Cold War he developed a revolutionary surveillance tool called ThinThread that was cheap and efficient, and didn’t invade anyone’s privacy. He developed it right up until the NSA scrapped it – 3 weeks before 9/11. In its place the NSA chose a surveillance system that generated profit and spied on its own citizens instead of its enemies. The system remains in place today. A Good American tells one of the most important stories of the information society, and dissects the inner workings and ties of a politico-economic network whose reach goes way beyond America.

Recalling her youth in northern Spain in the 1950s and her relationship with her beloved father, Estrella realises how little she knew about him. Raised in the south, he’d had his secrets. Delicate, nuanced, mysterious, Erice’s film reveals his abiding fascination with memory and missed opportunities, longing and loss, the passing of time and the links between private dreams and political realities. The performances – like the meticulously lit compositions and the evocative soundtrack – are superb throughout; Omero Antonutti is especially charismatic as Agustín, while Sonsoles Aranguren and Icíar Bollaín shine, respectively, as the young and teenaged Estella. Exquisitely beautiful, profoundly moving."

The Knack image

The Knack (15)

A Richard Lester adaptation of an Ann Jellicoe play, originally performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 1962, The Knack stars Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey, Girl with the Green Eyes and The Leather Boys) as a young, single woman arriving by train in London who ends up sharing a house with Ray Brooks (an immaculately dressed, very hip and predatory musician) Michael Crawford (a sex-starved teacher) and Donal Donnelly (an eccentric artist).

Beautifully made and the epitome of cool, swinging London, the film projects an optimistic feeling that almost anything might be possible and is brilliantly shot in the style of Lester’s previous mega-success A Hard Day’s Night.

Unlike preceding dramas in which anyone under 30 was, at best, just a supporting figure in a larger cast, The Knack – in which Crawford and Tushingham explore newly available sexual freedoms and clumsily try to get ‘the knack’ of successfully establishing relationships with the opposite sex – is almost entirely orientated towards young people. The Knack thus makes a good claim to be considered the first feature film to adopt this typically 60’s youth centric approach to its storyline whilst still being firmly targeted at the wider adult audience.

Hugely liked at the time, it won the Palme d’Or at Cannes. The very jazzy soundtrack was by John Barry, with contributions from Alan Haven and Johnny de Little (formerly vocalist in The John Barry Seven). Haven was an ideal choice – a jazz organist married to the then Miss World who had simultaneously composed and released ‘Image’ the popular instrumental used as a theme by Radio Caroline.
