But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line.

Raghu Rai is known as the ‘father of Indian photography’, and the name is well deserved. In his 50-year-long career, he captured portraits of Indira Gandhi, Mother Theresa and the Dalai Lama, and documented disasters, street life, political events and powerful forces of nature. His works have become iconic. His daughter, Avani, joins her father on a photography trip to Kashmir, India’s gaping wound, and documents him as he merges with his subject until, in his words, he himself becomes the sensor. Through her own camera lens, Avani tries to (and succeeds in) understanding her father, who could never express feelings except through a camera. Photographing each other, they create a sensitive, vulnerable, warm and intimate dialogue that casts Rai’s impressive works, showcased throughout the film, in a personal light.

The Distances (PG)

London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend


Four friends travel from Barcelona to Berlin to pay a surprise visit to their old university days friend, Comas, who lives now in the city and is about to turn thirty five. When he doesn't welcome them as expected, a chain of events and comments start to make evident that every one of them has something to hide and thus their friendship is put to the test. A graduate from Barcelona's ESCAC, Elena Trapé brings in her second feature film, and with superb finesse, the vain longing for better and happier past times capturing, with the help of cinematographer Julián Elizalde, the pale and cold light of Berlin's winter as well as the Spaniards's feelings of disorientation.

The Realm (15)

London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend


Manuel López Vidal, played by Antonio de la Torre, is a beloved politician in his region: he's charismatic, enjoys a good social position, has a loving family and friends everywhere. In a political system in which corruption is the norm, when he tries to cover up his associate, his Party turns against him and he turns against them to take revenge. After May God Save Us, Sorogoyen and de la Torre team up again to bring us a tense and fast-paced thriller full of intrigue and corruption, a sad portrayal of Spanish politics and its corruption cases as well as that of a loving husband and father that is at the same time unscrupulous and manipulative in his determination to hold on to power.

The Silence of Others image

The Silence of Others (PG)

London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend


Filmed over six years, this documentary follows the struggles of familiars of victims of the Franco regime in Spain as they organise the ground breaking Argentine Lawsuit. They are fighting at the same time against the agreement to “forget” that came with democracy and its amnesia of crimes against humanity. The tragic cases of men and women killed and buried in hidden mass graves, those of newborns being taken away from their mothers for a state-run eugenics program and the impact on the lives of their families are unveiled in a well-crafted and informative film that enables us to see how the country is still divided forty years into democracy. The film has been produced by the Almodóvar brothers.

Tower: A Bright Day (15)

KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival


Kaja (Malgorzata Szczerbowska) has returned after a six year absence and older sister Mula (Anna Krotoska) isn’t too happy to see her. A family gathering for the First Communion of Mula’s daughter provides an innocuous enough setting for reconciliation, but something isn’t quite right… In Tower: A Bright Day, the boundaries between reality and hallucination, common-sense and paranoia, Catholicism and pagan mysticism are all blurred to the keenest point of confusion.


Jagoda Szelc’s debut was nominated at Berlin International Film Festival, eventually winning a handful of Golden Lions at the Polish Film Festival, including Best Debut Director.

When Pigs Fly image

When Pigs Fly (15)

Soundscreen Festival


A rare opportunity to see the Joe Strummer soundtracked ‘When Pigs Fly’ directed by Sara Driver and starring Marianne FaithfulMarty "Alfred Molina" is a jazz musician, always a precarious source of livelihood even for the best-known performers. In this film, he is just barely getting by, living on the outskirts of a run-down town populated by Irish immigrants. Though this might be called a highly successful life for a jazz musician, it is hardly satisfying. He hangs out a bar called The Rose of Sharon and is friends with its irrepressible barmaid, Sheila "Maggie O'Neill". When Sheila introduces Marty to the ghostly inhabitants of a rocking chair, they embark on a series of adventures that result in satisfaction for all concerned - except for the bar's owner, who killed one of the ghosts "Marianne Faithfull" when she was among the living

Yuli (PG)

London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend


Based on a screenplay by Bollaín's long-time partner Paul Laverty and on Carlos Acosta's autobiographical No Way Home, the film takes us to Cuba and the struggles of a poor family, revealing the harshness with which a man tries to get his son out of the streets and into the right path by exploiting his outstanding talent for dance. Bollaín brings us again a thoughtful and delicate work, this time coupled with the vibrancy of the dance scenes and the moving and heartfelt interventions of Acosta himself.
