30.01.20 • Sorry We Missed You
UK – Dir: Ken Loach
🎬Ken Loach does an excellent job of explaining how the gig economy works, and how employers are relieved of moral and legal responsibilities. A middle-aged man signs on as a self-employed driver. The ensuing story is a deeply moving drama which should leave you with a lump in your throat and anger at the injustice and humiliation perpetrated on him.

06.02.20 • Photograph
India – Dir: Ritesh Batra
🎬Pressured by his grandmother to get married, a struggling street photographer convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancé. They soon develop an unexpected bond that transforms both of them in a way that they could not have imagined. It is directed by Ritesh Batra who directed The Lunchbox and is set in Mumbai.

13.02.20 • So Long My Son
China – Dir: Wang Xiaoshuai
🎬Three decades of Chinese history unfold through the lives of two couples linked by tragedy. Following the loss of a child in a tragic accident, their paths separate. So Long My Son chronicles people and society in full transformation in this gorgeous melancholic masterpiece.

20.02.20 • Transit
Germany/France – Dir: Christian Petsold
🎬Adapted from Anna Segher’s 1942 novel, Transit transposes the original story to the present blurring periods to create a timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people. A German refugee flees fascism to Marseilles and assumes the identity of a dead writer. He falls for a mysterious woman, Marie who happens to be the wife of the man whose papers he has stolen.

27.02.20 • The Farewell
China – Dir: Lulu Wang
🎬This film follows a Chinese family who, when they discover their beloved grandmother has only a short time to live, decide to keep her in the dark and schedule an impromptu wedding to form a gathering before she passes. Billi, feeling like a fish out of water in her home country struggles with her family’s decision to conceal the truth.

5.03.20 • Monos
Columbia – Dir: Alejandro Landes
🎬A survivalist saga comparable with Lord of the Flies, this is set on a remote mountain in Latin America. Tracking a group of young soldiers and rebels, an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle where their mission and loyalties disintegrate. Order descends into chaos and within MONOS the strong begin to prey on the weak in this vivid, cautionary tale.

12.03.20 • The Last Tree
UK – Dir: Shola Amoo
🎬A tender tale of an uprooted childhood tells the story of a British/Nigerian boy growing up in rural Lincolnshire and inner-city London, told with compassion in Shola Amoo’s moving drama. It follows the life of Femi, who moves to London to live with his mum and his struggles to figure out which path to adulthood to take.

19.03.20 • The Chambermaid
Mexico – Dir: Lila Avilés
🎬An understated and compassionate drama, this film is most remarkable for its gentle teasing out of work-place relationships. It’s not the worst job in the world, good conditions and friendly staff but the pressures clearly eat away at the soul. A gripping and oddly beautiful film.

26.03.20 • El Topo
Mexico – Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky
🎬For five decades, Jodorowsky’s wild second feature has, among cineasts, retained a strange, magical aura. The adventures of El Topo- a silent cow-boy who roams the deserts and defeats four mystical gun-slingers are as spectacular as they are surreal. El Topo has lost none of its power to shock and seduce since it was made in 1972.

02.04.20 • Parasite
Korea – Dir: Bong Joon Ho
🎬Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch black, modern fairy-tale. Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth, and the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Nominated in the Best Film Category in this year’s Oscars.

09.04.20 • Portrait of a Lady on Fire
France – Dir: Celine Sciamma
🎬France 1760, Marianne is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. While the two women orbit one another, intimacy and attraction grow as they share Héloïse’s first moments of freedom. The portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love.
