Eleven Directors from around the world put together a series of shorts each one 11 minutes, nine seconds and one frame in length and all based around the consequences of that fateful day. 11'09"01 is a thought provoking and often moving experience that covers many cultures and provides a refreshingly honest and diverse breadth of opinions. find out more...

An icy-cool study of violence both mediated and horribly real, the film follows a handful of seemingly unrelated characters all of whom perhaps by chance, perhaps by divine intervention, have the grave misfortune to be in an Austrian bank when a 19-year-old student starts unloading his revolver. find out more...

Part 1 of Wajda's trilogy of wartime films, the hopeful one, is set in Wola, a working-class area of Warsaw in 1942, and deals with the graduation of a bunch of semi-delinquent street kids, through individual acts of defiance and courage, into a youth resistance group. The heroism is not simple, neither loyalties nor self-sacrifice are assured, but united they will be. find out more...

2019. The Earth is on the brink of destruction, Tokyo shimmers with post-punk fetishism, gangs of cyberpunk bikers and rioting crowds are on the streets of the post-atomic city. The scene is set for comic-book ultra-violence in this remarkable animated nightmare of hyper-reality. find out more...

Both a beautifully observed drama and a keenly knowing satire, Bamako is an eminently watchable piece of modern African cinema. find out more...
