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.

The son gives in to his father’s will and identifies possible candidates for kidnapping; his popularity shields him from suspicion.

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.

S Is For Stanley is the story of Emilio D’Alessandro, Stanley Kubrick’s personal driver. A friendship that lasted through 30 years of their lives, helped create four cinema masterpieces, and brought together two apparently opposite people, that found their ideal journey companion far away from their homes.

Winner of the David di Michelangelo for Best Documentary 2016

Followed by a Q&A with Filippo Ulivieri, leading Italian expert on Stanley Kubrick and co-author of Stanley Kubrick and Me, the book that inspired this film.

"I first heard of Emilio D’Alessandro during an interview with Kubrick’s wife in their house near London. When I read his life story I was so blown away that I decided I was going to be the one to put it to film. It’s been a beautiful journey that has gotten me very close to the incredible personalities of two men: one of which I thought I knew everything, only to discover I did not know a single thing, the other of which I didn’t know a thing but has left me speechless with his amazing anedoctes."

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 World of Us

After winning the Crystal Bear for Best Short Film at Berlinale in 2014, Yoon Ga-eun returns with her debut feature about the relationship between two ten year-old girls. But scratch below the surface and The World of Us is about much more than this. Its understated yet captivating exploration of social pressures and cultural identity in South Korea will surely leave a lasting impression amongst audiences.

The film kicks off LEAFF's Stories of Women strand at Regent Street Cinema, and represents the tempestuous transition from childhood to adolescence. It follows Sun, who is the victim of bullies and an outcast at her local school. During the summer holidays she meets Jia, who has just moved to the area. Sun introduces Jia to the neighbourhood and slowly their relationship blossoms - but when the new semester starts, Jia catches on to the social hierarchy at class and their relationship takes a turn.

Reconciling their differences and navigating the social landscape in their school is just the start of their journey towards understanding each other and the world around them.

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.

Dust Flower Flame image

Dust Flower Flame

Dust Flower Flame is a documentary film about the life of Tahirih, also known as Qurratul-'Ayn. Tahirih was a woman of letters who lived in the nineteenth-century, in Qajar Iran. Her name is synonymous with the emancipation of women and social justice and her life has inspired generations of women ever since, particularly Iranian women's right movements.

Since 1979, the Islamic Republic of Iran forbids any literature or discourse that portrays Tahirih in a positive light. Her name has been removed from the latest editions of history books published in Iran. Instead the State seeks to tarnish her memory by depicting her as an apostate and a prostitute in numerous state-sponsored publications.

Tahirih Qurratul-'Ayn was strangled to death secretly one summer's night by order of two high-ranking clergymen, upon approval of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, the King of Persia.

The Beatles & World War II

Take some of the most famous solo artists of the 70s - Elton John; Tina Turner; The Bee Gees; Peter Gabriel; Bryan Ferry; Rod Stewart; David Essex; Leo Sayer; Helen Reddy & Frankie Valli; get them to sing cover versions of some of the most famous Beatles songs ever written; add unseen documentary footage of the Second World War telling the story of that epic encounter, AND.........what do you have?

The Beatles & World War II!

Sound crazy? It is. But enormously entertaining, and occasionally very chilling, especially when Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff and Vaughan Williams enter the scene. A unique blend and music and film like no other. Given that it is Tony Palmer, of that much we can be absolutely certain.
