Kurdish Women’s Festival

Hope (Hêvî) (12A)
+ discussion

How do the women of a nation denied all basic human rights oppose oppression? This documentary follows four important Kurdish women discovering different answers to this question. Covering 40 years, the film follows human rights defender and lawyer Eren Keskin, politicians Gültan Kisanak and Aysel Tugluk, and former guerrilla fighter and politician Sakine Cansiz. Essential.

Enter the Void: Full Length Director’s Cut (18)

The full length version of Gaspar Noé’s controversial masterpiece. Set in the neon-soaked backstreets of Tokyo and the transcendental worlds of the afterlife explored in The Tibetan Book of the Dead, this is cinema at its most extreme: beautiful, experimental, bold, infuriating, sadistic, original, mindblowing, exhausting, unforgettable. Like nothing you’ve ever seen.

The 100 Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared(15)

Allan’s had a penchant for dynamite since childhood but on his 100th birthday his most explosive adventure is just about to begin. Swedish director and comedian Felix Herngren displays a marvellous sense of the absurd in this adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s bestseller. Irresistible.
