*Film 1: Shadowing The Third Man

This Arena documentary reveals the many parallels between the on and off-screen action. Narrated by John Hurt, the film follows members of the original crew - Guy Hamilton (assistant director) and Angela Allen (script) - as they take us to the original locations in Vienna, and let us relive the on-set dramas and improvisations that make The Third Man so authentic and so compelling.


The documentary pioneers projectionism, an innovative technique developed by director Fred Baker, projecting scenes from the feature directly onto the locations where they were filmed. They take the viewer deep inside the original images to meld Vienna with Greeneland, the heart of Graham Greene’s moral universe.


Executive Producer – Anthony Wall

Christmas time in Australia – a time for sunshine, family gatherings, prezzies, barbeques, peace and love, right? Well, not so much for this family….


It’s been a tough year for Joey. Not only is he coping with the loss of his father, he hates everything about his life – especially his mum’s simperingly nice new boyfriend and sadistic son who life’s intent is to make Joey’s an utter misery.


But when he has to share a shed during the Christmas family gathering with his flatulent great-grandfather, who’s fresh out of prison, he knows this is going to be the WORST CHRISTMAS EVER.


But things often don’t turn out the way you expect. And stinky old Albert has a few tricks up his sleeve.


If you love the Australian classic, The Castle (1997), this bonkers film is definitely for you!

Human Nature

One of the most significant scientific breakthroughs in history, the discovery of CRISPR has made it possible to manipulate human DNA, paving the path to a future of great possibilities. The implications of this could mean the eradication of disease or, more controversially, the possibility of genetically pre-programmed children.


Breaking away from scientific jargon, Human Nature pieces together a complex account of bio-research for the layperson as compelling as a work of science-fiction. But whether the gene-editing powers of CRISPR (described as "a word processor for DNA") are used for good or evil, they’re reshaping the world as we know it. As we push past the boundaries of what it means to be human, Adam Bolt’s stunning work of science journalism reaches out to scientists, engineers, and people whose lives could benefit from CRISPR technology, and offers a wide-ranging look at the pros and cons of designing our futures.

Nana image

Nana (12A)

French Film Festival

With an original live score by Prima Vista Quintet


Jean Renoir's second full-length silent film is a faithful adaptation of Émile Zola’s classic novel. The film’s extravagances include two magnificent set pieces – a horse race and an open-air ball. It's an extraordinary achievement that now seems to fit perfectly into the Renoir oeuvre though at the time of its release in France it was a financial and critical disaster.


Catherine Hessling (Renoir's first wife) played the title role of the Second Empire bit actress who became the most famous courtesan of her day. It moves from realism to expressionism to romanticism, all the while being somewhat comic and cool. Her Nana is a non-stop performance, whether she's on‐stage or off, which is something that Renoir often seeks to emphasise by photographing scenes as if the camera were sitting in the orchestra of a theatre. Yet Renoir, who at this time was strongly influenced by the films of  Erich Von Stroheim, was fascinated by naturalistic detail, not only by the contrasts between the elegant and the seedy, but by the contrasts between the true and the make‐believe.


It is stunningly set and costumed from designs by Claude Autant‐Lara, who went on to direct his own films. The backstage settings are wonderfully bleak, while those of Nana's town house have a fairy tale grandeur about them. A final sequence, set in a Montmartre bal, predates by 50 years the exuberance of Renoir's 1955 French Can‐Can.

Narrated by Elisabeth Quin, this ground-breaking documentary combines interviews and iconic footage to radically reverse perspectives and give patriarchy a kick. Welcome to France, the land where women rock!

Rolling Stone - Life and Death of Brian Jones image

Rolling Stone - Life and Death of Brian Jones (15)

Premiere

Followed by a Q&A with Danny Garcia, Nick Reynolds, Simon Wells and Chris Salewicz


The first documentary to be produced about the founder and original leader of The Rolling Stones.


In the mid '60s, Brian Jones emerged as 'the face' and poster boy of the Bohemian Swingin’ London scene, topping the charts with The Rolling Stones and dating model/actress Anita Pallenberg.


However, his excessive lifestyle and his reputation as ' the original bad boy of Rock & Roll' was to cost him dearly. As the scene descended into the acid ridden year of 1967 so did Brian. Targeted by the authorities and media, he spiralled out of control losing both Anita and the respect of the Stones. Two years later, Brian was found at the bottom of his swimming pool, the verdict: death by misadventure.


During the last 50 years many theories have emerged, claiming that Brian was murdered and that it was covered up at high level, as this film discovers - the evidence for this is extremely compelling.

The Salamander image

The Salamander (18)

French Film Festival


Two self-proclaimed writers attempt to retell how a young woman shot her uncle in Alain Tanner and co-writer John Berger’s intelligent portrait of the free and the defiant—and of the dead-end jobs, old men, and “nitwits” that get in their way. One writer prefers facts, the other fantasy; the woman’s truth isn’t in between their approaches, but way beyond them. The great French actress Bulle Ogier (Celine and Julie Go Boating) stars as the post-hippie, pre-punk modern girl at the film’s centre. Coming of age in a Swiss capitalist wonderland, too downtrodden to join it, too detached to smash it, she is a precursor of a generation to come. The film is both a wondrously tongue-in-cheek assault against the staid, phoney morality of the bourgeoisie, and a timely ironic riposte to the well-meant offerings from the politically minded French New Wave film-makers of the time.

As the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial hub edge ever closer, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. This traditional East London street, less than a mile from the City of London, has become the last bastion of the areas disadvantaged – a concentration of the aged, poor and dispossessed. Following its inhabitants over a four-year period, Zed Nelson’s debut feature-length documentary charts the toxic collision of gentrification, austerity and the nation’s slide into Brexit.

Russian Film Week

Q&A with Dolya Gavanski


Astounding stories by women from the USSR - pioneers and survivors - who reveal their lives from the 1917 revolution to the present day. Intimate, surprising, funny, eccentric, painful and contradictory - this is the unknown history of Russian feminism.


Drawing on the filmmaker’s extensive research, remarkable rare archive footage and encounters with extraordinary and diverse women, Women’s Day explores, amongst other things: survival of the siege of Leningrad in subzero temperatures; the challenge of sex in communal flats; how to smuggle forbidden literature; to fly into space, how to rename a husband - and how to perform the perfect Soviet balletic pirouette. Not to mention the political and cultural complexity of the burning of veils…. We meet the ‘Voice of the USSR’, a Nobel Laureate, a Make-up Internet Sensation, a Cyber Security Boss, a Veteran of Stalingrad, an Exiled Feminist, a Tractorist Heroine and many more. These women lived through a convulsive era of historical and social change. They were forged in a culture that had officially proclaimed women equal to men. They were told they could achieve it all, but at what cost - and what was the reality?

Two decades after its filming, Olivier Meyrou’s controversial yet exquisitely drawn portrait of France’s last great fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent, has finally seen the light of day, having previously been withheld from release by Saint Laurent’s business partner, Pierre Bergé.


Echoing its ambiguous title, Celebration goes behind-the-scenes to present both Yves the Legend and Yves the Man, as he prepares his final collection before the fashion house was sold to Gucci in 1999. Icons of the glamour industry – such as Loulou de la Falaise, Laetitia Casta (also appearing in A Faithful Man at this year’s Festival) and the many top models who have donned Saint Laurent’s gowns – show their unerring dedication to the fashion house and its namesake.
