Here We Are (12A)

Here We Are

The shared coming-of-age story of a father and his autistic son who embark together on a journey of escape, a journey that ultimately leads to a parting and a new beginning.  


 Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world.  But Uri is autistic, and now as a young adult it might be time for him to live in a specialised home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. The journey of the two will change their lives.  


Israeli director Nir Bergman’s (Broken Wings, In Treatment) new film, which featured in Cannes Film Festival’s 2020 Official Selection, is a tender and loving portrayal of a father-son relationship.

Limbo (12A)

Limbo

Ben Sharrock’s critically adored Limbo is a wry, funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience.


Set on a fictional remote Scottish island, it follows a group of new arrivals as they await the results of their asylum claims. Among them is Omar (Amir El-Masry), a young Syrian musician struggling with the guilt, regret and grief that comes with leaving his former life behind.


This deadpan comedy-drama from a bold new voice in British film shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a crisis that is mostly only experienced through the headlines.

Nomadland (12A)

Nomadland

Nomadland comes to the Phoenix fresh from winning Oscars for Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress, following on from its success at the BAFTAs and Golden Globes.


The film centres on Fern (McDormand), who, reeling from the early death of her beloved husband, and following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada that is her home, packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside conventional society as a modern-day nomad.


The film is populated with intimate and compassionate studies of real people playing versions of themselves. Alongside them, McDormand delivers a quietly breathtaking performance – an angular, sympathetic portrait of an older woman choosing a life of relative freedom, whatever the pains and challenges that entails.


Before triumphing at the Oscars, BAFTAs and Golden Globes Nomadland received multiple other accolades. It won the People’s Choice Audience Award at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and the Golden Lion for Best Film at last year’s Venice International Film Festival. Additionally, Nomadland was awarded Film of the Year by the London Film Critics Association with Chloé Zhao named Screenwriter of the Year, and Frances McDormand Actress of The Year. The film also won the Best International Independent Film at the British Independent Film Awards.

Summer of Soul (12A)

Summer of Soul

Summer Of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) The Harlem Cultural Festival took place the same summer as the famed Woodstock festival, and boasted an attendance on par with that concert 100 miles away. Over 300,000 people attended, yet it received virtually no coverage from the mainstream media.


The 40 hours of never-seen-before footage has remained in storage for the past 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America's history lost - until now. It features many extraordinary performances by artists including Stevie Wonder, Sly and The Family Stone, Nina Simone, B.B. King, the Staple Singers, the 5th Dimension, David Ruffin, Mahalia Jackson, Ray Barretto and Gladys Knight and the Pips.

Sundance London Tour: Zola

Be the first to see the best of the Festival from across the pond with our exclusive Sundance Film Festival: London Tour preview screening of Zola.

 

2015: Zola, or @zolarmoon, tweets “wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out???????? It's kind of long but full of suspense.” Thus begins a Twitter thread that would go down in history, and from it comes Zola, an acidic, hypnotic thrill-ride from director Janicza Bravo, writer Jeremy O. Harris, and the woman herself (depicted in a star-making

performance by Taylour Page). Zola, a Detroit waitress, finds herself flung into a friendship with the chaotic Stefani (Riley Keough), a stripper en route to Florida for a 'hoe trip'. Zola’s seduced into joining her to make some quick cash – but their journey soon becomes a sleepless 48-hour odyssey involving a lot more than she bargained for.

The Sparks Brothers (15)

The Sparks Brothers

There aren't many musicians who arrive at their 50th anniversary on a creative roll, still luring in new generations of fans, making Top 10 albums, and doing so by releasing music every bit as challenging and inventive as their earliest recordings. In fact, there is precisely one: Sparks.


Ron and Russell Mael are rock's original Odd Couple, as inscrutable as they are fascinating. Never content to rest on their laurels or follow musical trends, they have achieved commercial success only intermittently and almost despite themselves. Edgar Wright's music documentary The Sparks Brothers captures the art-pop pioneers at an improbable late career-high, as well as recounting the story of how they got there, asking why they are not as celebrated as they deserve to be, and finding out how they became your favourite band's favourite band.

The Truffle Hunters (12A)

The Truffle Hunters

Deep in the forests of Northern Italy resides the prized white Alba truffle. Desired by the wealthiest patrons in the world, it remains a pungent but rarified mystery. It cannot be cultivated or found, even by the most resourceful of modern excavators. The only souls on Earth who know how to dig it up are a tiny circle of canines and their silver-haired human companions-Italian elders with walking sticks and devilish senses of humor-who only scour for the truffle at night so as not to leave any clues for others. Still, this small enclave of hunters induces a feverish buying market that spans the globe. With unprecedented access to the elusive truffle hunters, filmmakers Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw (The Last Race, 2018 Sundance Film Festival) follow this maddening cycle from the forest floor to the pristine restaurant plate. With a wily and absurdist flare, The Truffle Hunters captures a precarious ritual constantly threatened by greed and outside influences but still somehow ...


"This touching film about the truffle hunters of Piedmont offers a glimpse into a timeless, secretive way of life – and the deep companionship at its core" - Mark Kermode, The Guardian
