The Sketch Artist on DVD and On Demand

Eve Garance is a remarkable sketch artist capable of “reading” people. In the Investigation Unit of the Police Department, she uses her talents to create composite sketches to catch criminals. Her colleagues include Maryse Ferron, the methodical director whose disability has never stopped her; Bernard Dupin, the seasoned investigator who keeps the dark regions of his life under wraps, and Anthony Kamal, the new technician who doesn’t know what he is getting into. This is the team assigned to solve a laundry list of sordid crimes. They will tackle also cold cases – even if old wounds are opened in the process.

The return of Eve’s ex will force her to reopen a very personal cold case: that of the disappearance of their son William, then six months old. For five years, Eve has been secretly imagining and sketching the faces that her son could have today in the hope of finding him one day.

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn…

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn…

CTC | directed by Radu Jude | 2021 | Romania | 106 Mins

Winner of the prestigious Golden Bear at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, BAD LUCK BANGING (OR LOONEY PORN) is an outrageous Romanian comedy satirising the sensitivities of modern culture.

Emi (Katia Pascariu), a school teacher, finds her career and reputation under threat when a personal sex tape is leaked to the Internet. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal, Emi refuses to surrender to their pressure.

Director Radu Jude (Aferim!) delivers an incendiary mix of unconventional form, irreverent humor and scathing commentary on hypocrisy and prejudice in our societies in a film of three loosely connected parts: a walk in the city of Bucharest, a playful essay on obscenities, all culminating in an incendiary comic confrontation.

Let The Child Be The Guide

Let The Child Be The Guide

Curious to see how the Method works first hand, filmmaker Alexandre Mourot sets his camera up in the oldest Montessori school in France (with kids from 3 to 6) and observes. The teacher remains discreet.  Alexandre was warmly welcomed in a surprisingly calm and peaceful environment, filled with flowers, fruits and Montessori materials. The children guided the film director throughout the whole school year, helping him to understand the magic of their autonomy and self-esteem – the seeds of a new society of peace and freedom, which Maria Montessori dedicated her life work to.

Watch this space for screenings and info on how you can book the film for your own group screenings.

I Am No Bird

I Am No Bird

Dir. by Em Baker, Australia, 2019. 77 mins | Documentary.  Women spend their lives receiving contradictory messages about marriage: an aspiration, a fantasy, a trap. An ancient institution, whose meaning has been fiercely debated the world over, it can be difficult to pin-point what marriage means to modern women.

To Benay, in Turkey, it means a new beginning and a new family, something she lost with the passing of her mother when she was a child. To honour this, she’s getting married on Mother’s Day. To Anna, in Australia, it means being made one with her partner and her God, and preparing to lose her virginity. To Luthanlu, in India, it means an opportunity to continue her Rongmei Naga culture, a tribal minority in the North-East of the country. And to Dalia, in Mexico, it means the validation of her relationship with her girlfriend, and hopefully, reconciliation with her conservative mother.
