Pride

15
  • Matthew Warchus
  • In English
  • 120 mins

It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike. At the Gay Pride march in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem – the Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. Undeterred, the activists decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a Welsh mining village and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person, so beginning the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising partnership.

Manuscripts Don’t Burn

15
  • Mohammad Rasoulof
  • In Farsi
  • 127 mins

Subject of a ban on filmmaking imposed on him, along with Jafar Panahi, by the Iranian authorities, Mohammad Rasoulof has responded to this attempt to silence him with a defiant, directly political film. Taking place during a single day in and around a wintry Tehran, Manuscripts Don’t Burn revolves around the attempts by two low-level state officials to cover up a state-sponsored atrocity involving a number of dissident intellectuals from a number of years back. Gripping with quiet, thriller-like assurance, the movie probes the reasons and continued legacy of this bloody event and provides a sombre snapshot of a wider culture of corruption and repression. The style is low key and unadorned, but the atmosphere is charged with a raw, electrifying anger. With much of the film clandestinely shot in Iran, the bulk of the cast and crew remain anonymous to protect them from the attention of the Iranian authorities.

  • In Arabic, French
  • 110 mins

Set in Lebanon at the start of the 1975 civil war, West Beirut tells the gripping and emotional story of two young boys, Tarek and Omar, whose world is fuelled by political violence. At first, the war seems like a lark and the boys make 8mm films of their adventures together, revelling in the thrilling excitement of conflict. But soon, religious and patriarchal tensions rise, and their personal war leads from adventure to tragedy.
