A love story is at the heart of this fast-paced and gripping political thriller set in the battle-torn occupied Palestinian West Bank; in the neighbourhoods of the film’s hero, Omar, and his friends that are separated by the ‘isolation wall’. Friendship and a blossoming romance with his best friend’s sister Nadia unfold from the start but are juxtaposed with Omar dodging bullets, scaling walls and fleeing from Israeli security forces, and the film soon lurches into a cat and mouse game after Omar is captured by the enemy following a clumsy mission, and is coerced into being an informer. Omar finds he is not the only traitor however and paranoia mounts not only among his friends but also with lover Nadia, who begins to doubt the man she knows. Omar is directed by Hany Abu-Assad, who brought us Paradise Now in 2005, and his 2013 film has won a host of awards including the Jury Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival; was short-listed for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards; and best feature film at the 2013 Asian Pacific Screen Awards. “Omar has the intimacy of a star-crossed romance and the political and moral complexity of a le Carre story. It’s a lean, controlled film and most compelling.” Jonathan Romney, The Observer. “Omar has depth, nuance and a complex understanding of life under occupation. Innocence and complicity are profoundly, unnervingly intertwined in the mind of a person who is struggling to physically survive, to love, to maintain a modicum of dignity in conditions where there is no longer any hope.” David Shulman, The New York Review Blog.

A fun-filled and fanciful family adventure story of a young genius, TS Spivet, who dazzles the American Smithsonian Institute by inventing a perpetual motion machine and has to make the perilous journey alone from his family ranch in Montana to Washington DC to collect his award. The backdrop is the tragic loss of his twin brother, Layton, and a family who do not quite understand or notice him, and are struggling to come to terms with their own grief. Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, best known for Amelie and The City of Lost Children, has a high visual concept that uses heightened colour pallets and 3D imagery to display TS’s scientific ideas that add a sense of fun to the film. The film, based on a Reif Larsen novel, has been likened to Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, and promises to delight both young and adult viewers. “As usual, Jeunet’s film looks magnificent. He paints his mythical vision of America in sumptuous autumnal hues: the impossibly yellow cornfields, red barns and blue skies look like they could be hung on the wall of a Midwest diner. The Frenchman also adds 3D to his toolbox of visual flourishes: eye-poling illustrations and flying diagrams accent his trademark attention to whimsy.” Paul Bradshaw, Total Film. “TS Spivet has plenty of ways to dazzle the eye. In the title role Kyle Catlett blends adult intelligence and childish innocence, while Helena Bonham Carter and Judy Davis vie for supremacy as carefully counterbalanced (non)maternal rivals.” Mark Kermode, The Observer.

Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor (Alex Brendemühl) meets an Argentinean family and follows them on a long desert road to a small town where the family will be starting a new life. Eva (Natalia Oreiro), Enzo (Diego Peretti) and their three children welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith (Florencia Bado), to his care, not knowing that they are harboring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. At the same time, Israeli agents are desperately looking to bring THE GERMAN DOCTOR to justice. Based on filmmaker Lucía Puenzo's (XXY) fifth novel, the story follows Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death," a German SS officer and a physician at the Auschwitz concentration camp, in the years he spent "hiding", along with many other Nazi's, in South America following his escape from Germany. Mengele was considered to be one of WWII's most heinous Nazi war criminals.
