- 29 AprSon of Saul Programme NoteJust as debate has raged amongst historians as to the causes and lessons of the Holocaust, the depiction of the latter in film has also been a point of contention.
- 22 AprArabian Nights Programme NotesEach volume of director Miguel Gomes’ sui generis epic comes pre-loaded with notes and commentary, and collectively these help to steer the viewer through its labyrinthine assortment of tales.
- 7 AprDheepan Programme NoteJacques Audiard’s Dheepan (2015) is a curious film. On one hand, it’s a story of immigration, of Sri Lankan refugees seeking escape to the west, told in an almost documentary-style form. On the other, it’s a slow-burning descent into bloody violence.

- Programme Note: A WarHollywood and beyond would be doing themselves far more a justice, if ALL war related cinema going forward reflects ONLY a strong-anti-war message. War is for profit, always has, nothing more, nothing less. Even America's involvement in WWII was really, in the end, more about getting the nation out of economic depression, than "stopping oppression". Hitler was a military man, a victim of violence himself as he suffered multiple abusive blows from his deranged father, who thought the Jews were terrorist. Sound familiar? He and his army could have been stopped without further violence. The US military is the biggest, scariest, most bloodiest killing machine the world has ever seen, comprised of millions of innocent yet misguided young girls and boys made to believe they "protect freedom" and "national security". The exact opposite is the result. Books made movies targeted to teens with outright anti-war messages, such as Hunger Games/Mockingjay series of which are a purposeful mockery of the American politic today, a war economy under pretense of some form of "protecting the American Way of Life", are a great start. It's come to a time parents today need to re-educate their kids away from the unsustainable hogwash claimed within history books glorifying those "brave patriots". Its never been about "defense". Even if its true "war has been part of human species" since day one, even then it was driven by unethical madness. War is a primitive institution. A cowards dance, designed by politicians and connected corporate cronies that want pawns for their profit. Enough is enough.
