Mina (Lubna Azabal – Incendies, Paradise Now) and her husband Halim (Saleh Bakri – Costa Brava, Lebanon) run a small business making and selling bespoke caftans in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. Halim is a master of his trade, and Mina a canny saleswoman, though their wares don’t come cheap and traditional dress is falling out of favour.

Woven with exquisite care, Maryam Touzani’s Cannes Un Certain Regard winning drama reveals a beautiful love triangle in a small Moroccan town (where gay relations are forbidden). Touzani explores a complex marriage with tenderness and grace in a sincere and superbly performed film that unfolds in unexpected and heartening ways.

Furia | Norwegian | 8 Episode Thriller

FURIA is a tense, eight-episode thriller with a dark, twist-laden plot, set against the backdrop of two of Europe’s most distinguished capital cities – Oslo and Berlin – as well as rural western Norway.

An edge-of-your-seat mix of undercover thriller and prescient political drama, the story centres around RAGNA, an undercover operative who has penetrated a far-right extremist terror cell, hellbent on carrying out an atrocity the likes of which Europe has never seen before.
Elsewhere, former special ops officer ASGEIR is living the quiet life in western Norway after escaping from the Russian underworld and assuming a new identity. When their two worlds collide, they face a race against the clock to prevent the unthinkable happening on German soil.

The Sketch Artist on DVD and On Demand

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

Dir. Radu Jude | 2021 | Romania | 106 Mins | R18+

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.
