Dates for your Diary
Wed May 15th In the fade (Germany); Director Faith Akin; 106 mins
Katja's life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. However, the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning - opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri's best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there's simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.
Wed Jun 19th I am not a witch (Zambia); Director Rungano Nyoni; 93 mins
After a minor incident in her village, nine-year-old Shula is exiled to a travelling witch camp where she is told that if she tries to escape she will be transformed into a white goat. As she navigates through her new life, she must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of seeking freedom.
Wed Jul 17th A Man Called Ove (Sweden); Director Hannes Holm; 116 mins
Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse - the quintessential angry old man next door. His days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave. His existence is disrupted, however, with the arrival of a boisterous young family who move in next door. Heavily pregnant Parvaneh and her lively children are the complete antithesis of what ill-tempered Ove thinks he needs. This award-winning story is a wistful, heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions.
Wed Sep 18th Insyriated (Belgium); Director Phillipe Van Leeuw; 86 mins
Trapped inside her house in a city under siege, Oum Yazan, mother of three, turned her flat into a safe harbour for her family and neighbours, trying to protect them from the war outside. When bombs threaten to destroy the building, when snipers turn the courtyards into deadly zones and burglars break in to claim their dreadful bounties, maintaining the thin balance of routine inside the walls becomes a matter of life and death.
Wed Oct 16th The Nile Hilton Incident (Scandinavian/Arabic); Director Tarik Saleh; 107 mins
In Cairo, weeks before the 2011 revolution, Police Detective Noredin is working in the infamous Kasr el-Nil Police Station when he is handed the case of a murdered singer. Upon realising the involvement of Egypt’s power elite in the case, Noredin slowly changes sides to those who are defenseless against it. A political thriller based on a true story.
Wed Nov 20th The Breadwinner (Afghanistan); Director Nora Twomey; 93 mins
The story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive. Equally in parts thrilling and spellbinding, 'The Breadwinner' is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.
Wed Dec 18th Ida (Poland 2013); Director Pawel Pawlikowski; 80 mins
Anna is a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, discovers a dark family secret dating back to the years of the Nazi occupation. Award-winning Polish born director Pawel Pawlikowski returns to his homeland for this moving and intimate drama.
