Stanley Kubrick’s stunning near-future sci-fi features a sadistic gang-leader who whiles away evenings with his droogs in the Korova Milkbar before embarking on terrorising rampages. What will the authorities do about him? Contrasting the violence of the individual with that of state control, this dark satire has more bite than anything else in Kubrick’s oevre and subsequently suffered from distribution problems at the time of release.

"What our nightmares have accustomed us to see in dreams, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange shows us in broad daylight. It is one of the most unsettling films in the whole of cinema." - The Evening Standard

The historical drama that brought Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton together stars she as the queen of all Egypt and he as her Roman lover Mark Antony. Unfortunately, her alliance with Caesar (Rex Harrison) runs deeper than politics - a situation that takes both empires to the brink.

Taylor's 65 costumes cost as much as most movies; one dress alone was made of 24 carat gold.

Feng Shui image

Feng Shui (12A)

London Korean Film Festival Teaser Screening

From The Face Reader (2013) and The Throne (2015), to last year’s LKFF-favourite The Princess and the Matchmaker (2018) bringing famous historical figures to life on the big screen has proved a recurring success at the Korean box office. This ever-popular historical drama genre returns to the UK with Director Park Hee-kon’s action-packed Fengshui.

Park Jae-sang (Cho Seung-woo, Inside Men) is a Fengshui Master hiding from a tragic past by using his talents to read the land around him and offering advice to those who need it - from desperate mothers unable to convince their sons to study, to market sellers struggling to boost sales, and even newly-weds wanting to spice up their love lives. After being approached one day by Heung-seon (Ji Sung, Confession), a member of a fallen royal clan with a plan to drive out the aristocrats who have corrupted the royal order - the same people who murdered his own family many years ago - Park can no longer ignore his past. Teaming up with the outcast royal to take down the power-hungry Kim family, Park has a chance to use his Fengshui powers for good and avenge his family, just as long as he can see through the treachery that surrounds him...

Set against the backdrop of Korea’s majestic landscapes, Fengshui’s Korean title, Myeongdang refers to the ‘ideal site’, reflecting the belief that the land’s qi has the power to change one’s fate. Though our Fengshui Master endeavours to use his qi-reading for good, Director Park Hee-kon’s blockbuster shows us what can happen when powerful knowledge falls into the wrong hands.

Weaving archive material and expert interviews with recreated courtroom drama using the transcripts of scientist Arthur Rudolph’s trial we learn about the Germans who led the moon shot, their wartime records, the cover-up that brought them to America, why it took forty years to investigate them, and why none of them were brought to trial….

Slam image

Slam (15)

The London Australian Film Society is proud to present – direct from the Sydney Film Festival – the UK premiere of Partho Sen-Gupta’s Slam (2018), an extraordinary mystery drama about family, identity, and Islamophobia in Australia.

The comfortable life of Sydney café owner and Muslim refugee Ricky (Adam Bakri) is thrown into chaos when his estranged sister Ameena (Danielle Horvat) – a highly politicised, hijab-wearing slam poet – goes missing after a performance. As the search for Ameena intensifies, Ricky is forced to re-evaluate his own identity, whilst doing battle with a right-wing media intent on framing his family as extremists.

Stunningly shot, this complex examination of race and identity in contemporary Australia is aided by a superb ensemble cast led by Rachael Blake ( Lantana, Sleeping Beauty). A tough but honest look at the harsh realities of a ‘multicultural’ nation, this gripping drama invests a necessary complexity in its depiction of Australia’s own ‘hostile environment’.

This special screening will be followed by a panel of media commentators, scholars, and activists (TBA) discussing a range of issues, from screen representation to the broader contexts of Islamophobia in Australia and Britain.
