    October, Review: Shoojit and the Shirker Names have great significance in director Shoojit Sircar’s October. The month symbolises the blooming and autumn fall season of the night jasmine/coral jasmine flower, known in Bengali as Shiuli. Shiuli is also the name of his heroine, though she is Tamilian, Shiuli Iyer, but because Shiuli was so fond of the flower, they name her after it. Her mother is a lecturer and is called Vidya, meaning education. His protagonist is called Dan until three ...

Destiny, about a jilted girl’s vengeance against her imagined prospective husband, has only a few drops of blood, and they come from the lover’s bleeding forehead, not caused by anything thrown at him but a result of tripping at a pizzeria’s entrance. It is more of a romantic comedy than a revenge story. Destiny is a cute, neat film that has a twist at the end, ...

    Today the SCI-FI-LONDON FILM FESTIVAL 2018 celebrates coming-of-age with its 18th annual programme which will run from the 1st to the 7th May 2018 at the Stratford Picturehouse Cinema. Seven days of amazing film, live music, immersive experiences and more. It will showcase a fantastic lineup with 6 world film premieres, 13 UK film premieres, 11 world short premieres and 13 UK short premieres. It will host 23 features, 52 shorts and 5 VR shorts alongside its regular classic cult events such as the 48 HOUR FILM CHALLENGE and SCI-FIDO, the world’s only cosplay for dogs!  We also celebrate Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein with an all-dayer on May 7th.

     

    Opening this year’s festival on the 1st May is the World Premiere of CHIMERA, which stars Henry Ian Cusick  (Lost, The 100).  


     

    A brilliant but disturbed scientist’s children are in cryogenic suspension, while he races to cure their deadly disease by decoding the DNA of the immortal Turritopsis jellyfish.  To progress he needs lots of stem cells.  A manipulative millionaire can help but she has her own agenda.

    Inspired by the director’s real life as his loved ones struggled with genetic disease, CHIMERA asks the existential question “do you want to live forever?“

     

    The gala evening also has a pre-screening introduction by Dr Charlotte Mykura (microbiologist and geneticist) who will try to separate the science from the fiction, and highlight the themes, the exaggerations, and the sometimes stranger-than-fiction realities of nature.”

     

     

    Other films include:
    BLOGGERS

    (2017, Spain, 75, Dir: Angel M. Chivite, Alberto Estévez )
    The year is 2078 and the Earth’s energy sources are exhausted. Nuclear and renewables can’t cope with demand. 

    Meanwhile, a new power source, ‘Coltan’ has been discovered on Mercury and mining has started, run by a multinational conglomerate.  Helena is the Captain of a ship returning from the mines, it should be routine but things on-board are not what they seem. 

    This Spanish film swims in the memories of many a great ‘space’ movie. At times gory and chilling, the modesty of the budget is impossible to detect, and the set design is really cool.

    We love a good space slasher and this is a very solid example..

     

    CENSOR
    (2017, Russia, 133, Dir: Konstantin Shelepov )
    Virtual reality, so real it’s indistinguishable from real life. Zombies, Nazis, Knights in armour - the game has it all. 

    After some real-world violent crimes are linked to gamers, the Ministry of Internal Affairs creates a new department, “C”, whose agents are censors. They must play the games and try to exceed the permitted level of violence.  But two of them become rivals and the lines between the real and game worlds blur. 

    This dark cyberpunk story is as much about the fear that computers will do our thinking for us as the dangers posed by the people who develop and control them.

    Censor’s director says, “As we develop this tech, should censorship become more important?  Sci-fi is not about tomorrow. It is about today”

    Censor makes Hardcore Henry look like a Disney film and slams its message down your throat!

    You Ready Player One?.

     

    CLOSER THAN WE THINK
    (2017, United States, 85, Dir: Brett Ryan Bonowicz )
    Predicting the future is very difficult.  We might be able to forecast how a trend will develop, but individual products?  Much harder.   This is why the work of Arthur Radebaugh is so amazing.

    Closer Than We Think is about the mid–20th-century comic strip and its creator, Arthur Radebaugh.

    The film provides important insight into what made the comic a foundation for other popular science fiction endeavors. More importantly, it shows how the strip directly encouraged nascent engineers and scientists to actualize the future described therein. 

    The film also contains interviews with the legendary Syd Mead (TRON, BLADE RUNNER). 

    A must-see for everyone, but certainly for those into futurism, tech, design, advertising or a nostalgic view of the future..

     

    CYGNUS
    (2017, Mexico, 87, Dir: Hugo Félix Mercado )
    Fabián, is an astronomer on a quest to discover the nature of an unknown object near the Cygnus constellation 30,000 light years from Earth. 

    One night, a strange signal gives him hope that he might be close to solving the mystery of Cygnus. His colleagues say he is wasting his time, but he thinks the signal is targeted at Earth rather than a random discovery.

    His superior’s attitude changes and Fabián becomes fearful that they will steal his discovery.  He becomes more paranoid and strange things begin to take place in the observatory.  Did he really find something or was the signal waiting to be found?

    Amazing landscapes and great performances make this a solid sci-fi tale..

     

    DEFECTIVE
    (2017, Canada, 111, Dir: Reese Eveneshen )
    A new corporation, the S.E.A. have been set up to trial a new type of police in North America. Uniformed, anonymous Preservers of Peace investigate, judge, and sentence people for even the smallest of crimes.

    Rhett, a disillusioned, middle-aged man, witnesses first-hand this newest law-enforcement mandate, which decrees citizens as “defective.” The punishment? Instant public execution at the hands of ruthless enforcers. Rhett, has a run-in with the Preservers and has to flee across state borders to escape them.

    But, after a surprise visit from Jean, his estranged sister, Rhett reluctantly now has his sister in tow, with the state in close pursuit.  Dredd?, Robocop? How long before we see this kind of ‘protection’ on our streets?.

     

    DIVISION 19
    (2017, United Kingdom, 93, Dir: suzie halewood )
    Reality television has done it all hasn’t it?  Our news is impartial, right? Goverment works for us?

    In 2039 rather than selecting people for ‘reality freak shows’ we now use prisons as the latest opiate for the masses.  Viewers get to choose what the prisoners eat, what they wear, the entertainment they can access – even who they must fight. 

    So successful has this been that the TV company now wants to extend beyond the prison walls and broadcast the surrounding town’s population.  Who will stop them?

    If the Truman Show could be any darker, then DIVISION 19 takes the extra step and questions who we are and why, for centuries, we have loved watching the misfortune and gladiatorial behaviour of others.  

    Written and directed by Suzie Halewood and a smash hit at Boston SciFi Film Festival we are delighted to have the London Premiere of this cautionary tale..

     

    HIDDEN RESERVES
    (2016, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, 96, Dir: Valentin Hitz )
    The corporation sells ‘death insurance’. Those who don’t have it are forced to remain alive (in body only) as repositories of other people’s consciousnesses until any ‘life debt’ they had is repaid.

    Vincent, a top insurance salesmen, firmly on the way up the corporate ladder, is secure in his work, sleeping with his boss, and able to afford an extravagent lifestyle, a life that many Wall Street brokers would envy.

    One day he meets Lisa, part of an activist group that wants an end to the storage facilites and the release of the human data machines.

    After Vincent fails to secure a rich client and is demoted, his one chance of regaining his former status is to infiltrate this resistance via Lisa.

    Of course, Vincent is drawn to her, and questions his own values and his drive for power.

    A very slick dystopian noir..

     

    HOSTILE
    (2017, France, 94, Dir: Mathieu Turi )
    A global disaster and epidemic has left a barren world with strange creatures that hunt at night.

    Juliette is one of the few survivors left and part of a small organised group.  She spends her days looking for supplies in the dry wastelands, using a van that has seen better days. Her two-way battery powered radio keeps her in contact with home base. 

    One day, as she travels back to base, an incident causes her to crash.  She radios base but they can’t get to her for hours and darkness is closing in.

    As she tries to get through the night she remembers the life she had before.

    By turns both romantic and terrifying, Hostile is an emotional roller coaster. It’s perfect for cuddling up with a loved one.

    If you like scary movies, you’ll love half this film. If you like love stories, you’ll enjoy the other half... If you cherish a good story, then you’ll love the whole thing.

    AintItCoolNews.

     

    KATRINA'S DREAM
    (2017, Switzerland, 83, Dir: Mirko Bischofberger, Dario Bischofberger )
    Katrina wants a child but her boyfriend Louis doesn’t. 

    He is a an older man, a hedonist and doesn’t want to spoil the life he has.  They split up and Katrina must look elsewhere, eventually pairing up with Louis’ friend Ron, who becomes the man of her life and they talk of raising a family, with Louis’ blessing.

    One night, in a drunken state, Ron and Louis leave a 50th birthday party and the two friends are involved in a car accident.  Ron suffers severe injuries to his head, Louis his body.   

    A nearby sanatorium helps recover the bodies and a new technique offers Katrina some hope; they can perform a head transplant; Louis’ head on Ron’s body.  But what if both men survive, merge into one person?  What will Katrina make of this new situation?

    A gentle and beautifully shot black comedy, Mary Shelley would have loved this!  We are delighted to hold the world premiere of the film..

     

    NOTHING REALLY HAPPENS
    (2017, United States, 100, Dir: Justin Petty )
    You’re having having a conversation with someone... and neither of you cares... know that feeling?

    Dave Stimple, an unfocused mattress store owner, is having issues connecting with everyone around him.

    He arrives at the shop one morning to find the local health and safety people have shut him down.  Bugs, huge bed bugs and lots of complaints are cited as the reason. 

    Dave is really confused and his relationships with his wife, friends, and his own humanity seem to be devolving and increasingly distracting anomalies begin to take over his reality.  But his issues may not be as internal as they seem.

    This is a proper WTF movie that you will enjoy unravelling.  Sometimes, modern life makes us all feel like mattress sellers at times..

     

    PEACHES
    (2016, Dominican Republic, 80, Dir: Héctor M. Valdez )
    If time is truly linear and we can’t go back, don’t we just have to remember the good times?

    Diego loves his girlfriend but after a disastrous anniversary trip, she declares she’s had enough of him and wants to split up.

    He tries to explain why he’s changed and reminds her of the ‘good times’ they had.   t’s not enough!

    Diego has a time machine and vows to amend or fix what has happened, even if it means competing with different versions of himself when travelling through time.

    This is a fun-filled play on time-travel paradoxes and has some fabulous future tech - we love the anti-grav Mini.

    Loosley inspired by an Australian movie called THE INFINITE MAN which we screened in association with  the London Comedy Film Festival (LOCO)..

     

    PRECOGNITION
    (2018, United Kingdom, 107, Dir: Luke Tedder )
    Ripe technologies are a pseudo-governmental organisation which appear to be trying to create a safer and fairer world with new implant technology.  Negative thought and memories have been removed, people are given careers and relationships they ‘deserve’ based on an in-app Karma rating system.

    This world in which every citizen lives connected to Ripe’s system seems almost perfect, at least on the surface. But the digital utopia is not without its ghosts. Soon the reality with which the characters surround themselves starts to unravel, as the true nature of the world surfaces.

    Samantha, who secretly works for Ripe and manipulates memories, discovers her husband James beginning to experience visions of a woman he doesn’t recognise. Unable to correct James’ visions, Samantha puts her life on the line.

    Solid scifi story that shows what low-budgets can achieve..

     

    THE ASTRONAUTS' BODIES
    (2017, Germany, 73, Dir: Alisa Berger )
    They say twins can sometimes experience each other’s emotions and in a dysfunctional family this surely can’t be a good thing.

    Anton and Linda are 19 year old twins who decide to flee the nest., leaving behind, Michael, their single alcoholic father and their younger sister. Michael stops taking care of himself in protest.

    Anton wants to go to space and joins  a research project, while his sister Linda is in search first love is drawn to a young man who seems to have similar problems to her father.

    Enigmatic and serene, this film is a poetic story about the progression of thought, dreams of space and the organic beauty of the human body, its desires and longings.  A stunning debut..

     

    THE GATEWAY
    (2017, Australia, 90, Dir: John V. Soto )
    Jane is a particle physicist working on the fringe, trying to create a teleportation device “you know, like in Star Trek” as she says.  But the machine they’ve built opens a route to a parallel dimension.

    The excitement about this is cut short however, as Jane receives an odd call from her husband saying he loves her before hanging up.  Later she discovers him dead.

    Like Another Earth or Random Quest, The Gateway  takes us through to another universe in search of Jane’s husband - perhaps he still lives there.

    In the parallel world she finds him again, bringing him across to our world, but no one guessed there would be dire consequences for her and her family.

    With a great cast and beautifully shot, The Gateway is the kind of  grown-up sci-fi we love..

     

    THE OUTER WILD
    (2017, United States, 84, Dir: Philip Chidel )
    The apocalypse came and went, the survivors are few and far between.

    Where some have banded together they still battle for power and use slavery to ‘better’ their lot. In one group, that forces young women to be breeders, Laura decides to escape her high-tech prison, but a bounty hunter, Cole, is sent after her.

    When she meets Cole, things change for them both and they must now face new threats together. They head across the wilderness to find a fabled sanctuary that can either save or destroy what’s left of humanity. Action packed, witty and surreal at times, this is the second feature by Philip, who had the brilliant Frankensteinesque SUBJECT TWO in the festival many years ago, which we screen as part of our Frankenstein Alldayer.

    This is the world premiere of THE OUTER WILD and Philip will join us to present the film.

    Love Mad Max, The 100, The Handmaid’s Tale?  This is a fresh, succinct mash-up of all your favourite PA films..

     

    VIOLENTIA
    (2017, Canada, 84, Dir: Ray Raghavan )
    Adam Anderson is a nano-tech engineer who has found a way to interact with our memories.

    Following his daughter’s death in a high school shootout, Anderson wants to use his tech to scan through the criminal’s memories in an obsessive quest to understand why he did it and find a cure for violence.

    Enlisted into a government program he’s given access to a psychopath’s memories as testing ground, leading him down a dark path where the lines between reality and memory begin to blur.

    A very smart and eerie film with some great ideas, Violentia takes us one step nearer to the potential of mind control and its consequences. 

    We are delighted to hold the international premiere of the film and have the director with us for a Q&A..

     

    WORD FROM A GAMER
    (2017, United States, 92, Dir: Steve Wollett )
    Have you played Dungeons and Dragons,  Catan, Magic The Gathering or any of the myriad other tabletop games?  If the answer is yes you’ll love the warmth and testimony in this film.

    If you are new to these kind of games, you’ll probably rush out after and grab some dice and a few books!

     Word From a Gamer is a heart-felt love letter of a documentary, that explores the tabletop gaming world, the people who make the games, and the people who play them.

    Interviews with D&D creators, TSR, with the editors of Dragon magazine, and numerous conventions goers and players of all types, make this a documentary designed to get you lost in a game world!

    To help you along, our friends at EXP, the gaming bar, will be playing games in the foyer - don’t be shy, come play something!.

    Edouard Waintrop, the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight topper is stepping down and can be proud on his final selection for the  50th Directors Fortnight,  big names, strong films, well known cast (Nicholas Cage, Adjani, Depardieu), to some proportion we can wonder whether this edition might not cast some shadow on Cannes Festival's selections.

    Iranian officials including the Head of Iranian Cinema Organization,  Mohammad  Mehdi Heidarian Visited the opening day of the 36th edition of Fajr international film festival kicked off today in Tehran at Charsou Cinema complex. University and middle school students attended the two sections including Daroulfonoun and the 7th Hour started today aiming to motivate them to watch and learn more.

    Following comes the interview with Mohammad Mehdi Heidarian,

     

    1.    As you know Fajr International Film Festival has been held for 36

    years which has received significant attention from various countries from Middle East to America especially last three years been directly covered by international media including Arabic and English ones. This year due to the participation of famous film directors in Fajr festival, the reflection of it has been noticeable. Would you please tell me your own opinion about this year’s Fajr International Film Festival and cooperation of countries following same goals as Iran does?

    Iran’s cinema is celebrating its 120 year of existence. After revolution our cinema has flourished and proved its capability to the world and because of that most of the festivals around the world are eager to have Iranian films in their festivals. These days we are thinking about not only participating in foreign festivals but also having our own international festivals and influencing the world. To reach this goal, Fajr International Film Festival has been designed and it’s being held every year. We are looking for bounding with other cultures .our main focus in this festival is to reach this aim.

     

    2. This year’s festival has been specifically reflected in many international countries ‘and medias, specially Arabic and Islamic news agencies, what’s your opinion about it?

    We are culturally and religiously bounded to countries in region, so we can have more sympathy toward each other. Festivals make these attachments much more clear so we should make the most of it.

    3. During the festival we will have an art gallery about Palestinian people and a famous Palestinian director is going to attend the festival, how do you comment about these sections?

    As I already mentioned, we are totally bounded to other countries in the region and one of our main concern is not only Palestinian Muslims, but we are also concerned about all Muslims around the world.

    Our concern is beyond the borders.  We should follow what people believe in and work on that .Fajr International Film Festival has always included various sections with similar contexts hoping they could meet the specific purposes in this regard. We hope that these sections could satisfy those whose major concern is freedom from hegemony

     

    4.As you know this year many significant film makers have been invited from across the world, how do you see that?

    As I already told you we aim to find those who are seeking independence. And everyone can reflect this differently in his/her culture. For example Mr. Oliver Stone objects to the politics in his own country or the Palestinian director who tries to depicts people’s suffering from cruelty and injustice. As  my last sentence I need to say the major responsibility of the festival has to be creating an atmosphere in which people have the same concern which is humanity.

    NEW YORK, NY 

    It started back in 2002, now the 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival is underway, with nearly 100 films being showcased over 12 days in New York City.

    One of its founders, Robert De Niro, was on hand to launch the festivities in New York City Wednesday night.  This year’s fest kicked off with a tribute to one of late-night comedy’s greats. Love, Gilda is a new documentary that focuses on the life of Gilda Radner, who made her mark during the heyday of Saturday Night Live, and who passed away from ovarian cancer back in 1989. 

    Running April 18-29, the TFF features nearly 100 feature-length fiction and non-fiction features from 46 countries (all world or U.S. premieres), almost half of which are by female directors. There are also short films, TV series, sports films, interactive programming, retrospective screenings of film classics, and TV presentations.  More information is available at TribecaFilm.com.

    Renowned for their groundbreaking immersive approach to the film festival experience, the 5th annual ILLUMINATE Film Festival returns May 30th - June 3rd.  The premier conscious film festival, ILLUMINATE is dedicated to elevating awareness and inspiring lasting transformation through cinema.  

    With this intent, each season ILLUMINATE searches out the year’s most compelling, paradigm shifting, life-affirming films. For their 5th annual Festival, they have selected 26 conscious narratives, documentaries and shorts. The schedule includes evening spotlights, special guests, post-screening presentations with directors and producers, filmmaker panels, nightly parties and live musical performances.

    “As a medium, film viscerally immerses us, opening our hearts and minds to larger possibilities.” Says Festival Founder and Executive Director Danette Wolpert, “This year’s lineup answers both micro and macro-level questions: how do we become the best and fullest version of ourselves? How do we make a true and measurable impact on the world?  Individually and collectively, how do we rise?”

    Participants in the festival are able to mingle with some of the renowned thought leaders of today, as well as like-minded individuals set on being the change they wish to see in the world.

     

    The festival kicks off Wednesday, May 30 with a free screening of The Push featuring the inspiring story of the indomitable Grant Korgan. Opening Night features the Festival World Premiere of the Emmy-nominated Live Your Quest, which shares the wisdom of Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Lisa Nichols, Tom Chi and others who explore the science, psychology and spirituality behind living a life of passion and purpose.

     

    The festival will close with the latest from beloved world renowned musician Michael Franti; Stay Human. This heart-drenched film reflects on Franti’s personal journey facing adversity as a child, struggling to find his voice as a musician, and how he came to find inspiration through six stories of extraordinary change-makers across the globe who chose to overcome cynicism through optimism and hope.

    New this year is the festival’s $5,000 cash prize, the Mangurama Award for Conscious Documentary Storytelling, which will be awarded to the most transformative non-fiction film that exhibits a strong story arc, compelling subjects and high production value. 

    For the first time, ILLUMINATE will be offering the cutting edge Reel Healing Online program. This  multi-week educational web series, hosted by both established and emerging leaders in the field of transformation,  will allow participants to more fully integrate a film’s message into their lives after the festival wraps.

    One of the luminaries offering a Reel Healing Online program is rising star and bestselling author Hal Elrod whose work has been featured in segments on every major television network. Part of the next generation of game changers, his film The Miracle Morning features leading research detailing extraordinary but simple processes, made up of daily practices, that allows people to quickly transcend their limitations, enabling them to maximize their full potential.

    In work-in-progress WeRise, a group of the nation’s top social innovators propose new models of success in business, medicine, education, politics, entertainment, technology and happiness to empower humankind. An inspiring call to action, it features insight from The Dalai Lama, Arianna Huffington, John Mackey, Alanis Morrisette, Moby, Joe Dispenza, Tony Robbins, Lynne Twist and more.

    Other highlights include an online Satsang with enlightened master Moojibaba, a Reel Healing with Spiritual Cinema Circle Co-founder Stephen Simon and 11 world premieres including 3100: Run And Become, a sweeping examination of running's spiritual nature; Calling All Earthlings, an exploration of the controversial ET and Nikola Tesla inspired electromagnetic dome built by George Van Tassel, a one-time Howard Hughes confidante; From Shock to Awe, a gripping look into controversial therapies for PTSD; The Edge of Paradise, which tells the story of Taylor Camp, a hippie paradise started by Elizabeth Taylor’s brother in 1969, You Are What You Act, a feature doc that exposes an intriguing body mind pattern among many of the world’s action heroes; Black Star which explores art as a healing modality for addiction; and Living Music, a documentary short chronicling a rehabilitative journey of artistic experimentation and unconventional healing.

    In addition, the festival will host its 5th Conscious Film Convergence, a series of film-industry programs offering panels on pitching, film funding and distribution. Added to the offering this year are the Take Twenty Mentoring Sessions, a speed networking opportunity where advice seekers can spend twenty minutes each with pioneers and leaders of the conscious film industry.

     

    Finally ILLUMINATE will be honoring author Lynne Twist with the Conscious Visionary Award. Author of The Soul of Money, this SuperSoul Sunday favorite and founder of the Pachamama Alliance is a recognized global visionary committed to ending world hunger, supporting social justice and environmental sustainability, and reframing our society’s relationship with money.



    ​The full selection of films has just been announced on ILLUMINATE’s website. The complete schedule will be announced on April 24.

    Fifteen-year-old Belgian filmmaker/actress Ivana Noa will present her new short horror film “Fictional Character” as an official selection of the CineYouth Festival. The festival showcases short films by directors ages 6-22 from around the world. CineYouth is held in Chicago from April 20-22, 2018 and is part of the Chicago International Film Festival. https://www.chicagofilmfestival.com/cineyouth/

     

    An established named in the youth film world, the award-winning Noa is best known for her film “Feeling to Dive and Other Stories,” as well as playing the role of the young Juliet in Toneelhuis' stage play ‘Romeo and Juliet.”  In 2015, she made her second short “Unofficial: Judo.”  She also completed two documentaries “Actress” and “Interview with a Director,” in which Noa explores different expressive elements - original poetry and conceptual art together with direct interview techniques and insert close-ups. “Interview with a Director” premiered at the Short Film Corner at Cannes Film Festival, making Noa the youngest filmmaker to ever to have screened at the festival. “Fictional Characters” marks her seventh short film.

     

    In the film, Hans is just starting to discover the world. Gretel is a teen, feeling infuriated to everything. The mother is as she always has been. The father is too weak to change. Everybody is in love with the witch, searching for their “virtual I” and trigger for transformation. Almost as a documentary of how they felt then, or how would they feel today. Modern society might be few centuries later and few social platforms ahead. Though, did people really change? Who is the bad guy in the story? Isn’t the witch actually the one that makes them different and provokes them to take the next step in their understanding of the “self”? And being free? How does the trivia of the bad provoke the gradual development of every family across the globe? Can a family be gender fluid? What is a gender? Is it important?

     

    The film also features Veerle Eyckermans, one of Belgian’s most renowned actresses in the role of the mother, as well as actors Dirk De Lathauwer, Ellen Sterckx, and Willem Herbots. Heleen Declerq serves as director of photography and Olympe Tits, who plays the Witch in the film, is the film’s choreographer. The film’s original soundtrack is by PJ Seaux.

     

    Noa comments, “This is a young and dynamic team, built of strong, creative personalities with a sense for art since early age. There is no legacy they carry as none are coming from families with art history. All are pure born talent, unmodified and unsteered by stereotypes.” 

     

    “Fictional Characters” will have its world premiere on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 1:30 PM as part of CineYouth’s World View.
