More films are coming in as we speak but so far we have some fantastic films lined up, check it out:
The Merciless Beauty – Dir. Michael Groom – 13.54
Johnny works a farmhand in the splendour of the English Lake District: he leads a life of solace and introspection, until the strange appearance of a mysterious and beautiful woman on the fellsides one day. Unsure if she’s a figment of his imagination or an actual physical being, Johnny succumbs to obsession nonetheless.
The Residue of a Relationship – Dir. Brett Chapman – 14.50
This isn’t a film about a breakup, but rather an intimate cinematic experience about a man rediscovering who he is without the love of his life. Brett Chapman’s The Residue of a Relationship, explores the leftovers of love – the artifacts of a relationship – that ultimately change who we are as people. Reminiscent of a John Green or Woody Allen movie, Chapman’s visual diary is campy to the point of cheesiness, but gets away with it because of how utterly charming it is. Perhaps what makes it most special is the way it was captured and how it reveals the extent cinema has influenced our expectation of love.
Grenfell – Dir. Jamie Scrutton – 4.37
I was asked to adapt a piece of writing, by the fantastic Poet Daren Peary titled “Grenfell.” It is based on the horrific Grenfell Fire Tragedy. His heartfelt narrative allowed me to translate the pure lyrics to a visual Motion Film, animating his artistic but compelling words to life. This Animation is dedicated to the beautiful spirits, victims and residents who were affected by this inferno. Also, to the Medical Professions who showed courage, fearlessness and strength, to service their commitment to a tragedy which could and should have been prevented. #JusticeForGrenfell.
40 days – Dir. Jenny Longworth – 8.52
A UK/Finnish co-production Russian language drama. Original concept and produced by Joseph Stacey, Written and Directed by Jenny Longworth. Made in 3 days at the Helsinki Kino Kabaret 2016
