Rosalie (15)

Loosely based on a true story, Stephanie Di Giusto’s second feature champions a woman who challenges society’s restrictive beauty standards.


1870s, Northern France: Rosalie has a secret – her face and body are covered in hair. She’s concealed her hirsutism all her life, shaving to ensure she’s accepted in polite society. But her perspective changes when Abel, an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries her for her dowry.


Will the conservative Abel be able to love the real her? If not, why not? And what might happen if she were to reject embarrassment entirely and go public?


Interrogating feminine beauty standards, Rosalie features a winning central performance from Nadia Tereszkiewicz as a sensuous, indomitable woman embarking on an intimate rebellion.


An optimistic and open-hearted story about the power of self-acceptance and the truism that we are more alike than we are different, Rosalie is beautifully shot in gorgeous rural France and features an airy, emotive soundtrack by composer Hania Rani.

Treasure (12A)

★★★★ – The Times. Following the fall of the Iron Curtain, music journalist Ruth and her father Edek, a Holocaust survivor, go on a tour of his homeland of Poland.


"★★★★ – Stephen Fry and Lena Dunham are the charismatic double act you never knew you needed" – The Times


Following the fall of the Iron Curtain, music journalist Ruth and her father Edek, a Holocaust survivor, go on a tour of his homeland of Poland.


The charming bon vivant follows his own amusing agenda on the trip, filled with distraction and entertainment. Only when the two visit the family’s former home and meet the Polish family who now live there does Edek’s attitude start to change.


For the first time in their lives, father and daughter truly grow closer to each other. This journey of two New Yorkers through post-socialist Poland is a powerful example of how reconnecting with a painful past does not have to be painful in itself.

Strike: An Uncivil War (PG)

Daniel Gordon’s feature documentary Strike: An Uncivil War tells the story of the Battle of Orgreave, the most violent confrontation between Miners and Police during the 1984/85 Miners’ Strike in Great Britain.


The year-long strike was the most divisive and violent industrial dispute that Britain has ever witnessed, and using powerful personal testimony, previously hidden government documents and never-before-seen archive material, the film follows the events at Orgreave, which took place on 18th June 1984.


The Miners’ Strike cut right to the heart of Britain’s social and political consciousness. It was about more than the economics of coal mines and encompassed regionality, class, community, masculinity, the role of women, relationships, marriage and family. The conflict spread from south east England, the Midlands and the North, to the coalfields of Wales and Scotland.

In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so called "green border" between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.


In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU. Pawns in this hidden war, the lives of Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, Jan, a young border guard, and a Syrian family intertwine.


Three-time Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland's poignant new feature Green Border opens our eyes, speaks to the heart, and challenges us to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day.

Sorcery (15)

A young girl discovers a talent for witchcraft in Christopher Murray’s darkly atmospheric new film, an enthralling fable of anti-colonial revenge and self-discovery steeped in ancient folklore.


"★★★★ - Murray's film has a bristling and restless aura" - The Guardian


"A sinister and satisfying fable of anti-colonial revenge in 19th Century Chile" – Variety


A young girl discovers a talent for witchcraft in Christopher Murray’s (The Blind Christ, Manuel de Ribera) darkly atmospheric new film, an enthralling fable of anti-colonial revenge and self-discovery steeped in ancient folklore.


On the remote South Pacific island of Chiloé in the late 19th century, Indigenous girl Rosa (Valentina Véliz) lives and works with her father on a farm run by German colonisers. When the foreman turns on Rosa’s father in an act of brutality, she is full of righteous fury and the desire for justice. Returning to her spiritual roots, she embraces a path of resistance, seeking help from a powerful organisation of sorcerers.


Murray’s fascinating drama draws on real events that took place on Chiloé Island, but adds elements of magical realism, folk horror and fairytale. With a subtle, graceful performance by lead actor Valentina Véliz, Sorcery casts a cinematic spell.

Screening to mark the film’s 10th anniversary and the 40th anniversary of the UK miners’ strike – Pride is the star-studded, deeply moving story of a group of London-based gays and lesbians who lent their support to striking coal miners in Wales in 1984.


It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.


But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
