Based on the true story of 13-year-old Ernst Lossa (Ivo Pietzcker)

Southern Germany, early 1940s . Ernst, a motherless child, is a bright but maladjusted boy. The homes and correctional facilities he has lived in so far have deemed him “uneducable”. Eventually confined in a psychiatric unit because of his rebellious nature, he notices that other internees are being killed under the supervision of Dr Veithausen. By helping the other patients and planning an escape with Nandl, his first love, Ernst defies the clinic management, the very one who decides on whether the children there should live or die.

Mike (14) is a kind of loner: no friends, no hobbies, no girlfriend! That is until he meets Tschick (14), who’s new in school, looks like he’s been in a lot of fights and has a tendency to be drunk. At the beginning of the summer break, Tschick shows up at Mike’s door with a stolen car and together they start on the adventure of their lifetime: no parents, no maps, no plan – but definitely a lot of fun.

GOODBYE BERLIN is a modern story about growing up, friendship, fun and worldly wisdoms.

Respected surgeon Finnur’s concern for his unstable daughter Anna is heightened when she brings new boyfriend Óttar home and it becomes clear that he is a toxic influence and a catalyst for her drug habit. As Finnur attempts to take control of the situation for Anna’s sake, things quickly spiral out of hand, while Óttar’s arrogance and sense of power become increasingly problematic. This dark, shadowy and riveting thriller from auteur Baltasar Kormákur (who also stars) boasts strong performances, sweeping Icelandic vistas and a tension that is never compromised by implausibility.

A Film By Brendan Muldowney

Cast: Tom Holland, Richard Armitage, Jon Bernthal, Stanley Weber, John Lynch, Rúaidhrí Conroy, Hugh O’Connor

Ireland, 1209. An island on the edge of the world. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. Escorting their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome, the monks’ progress is seen through the eyes of a pious young novice and a mute lay-brother with a violent past. As the true material, political and religious significance of the bejewelled relic becomes dangerously apparent, their path to the east coast becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The monks belatedly realise that in this wild land of ancient superstitions, the faith that binds them together may ultimately lead to their destruction.

A Film By Terrence Malick

Amid a world driven by youth, passion, lust, drugs and creativity, the story hones in on one couple who find in each other a way to bust through all the wild distractions of our modern lives and seek satisfaction in a new way. Filmed throughout Austin and at its world-famed music festivals by three-time Academy Award winner Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki, SONG TO SONG features unexpected performances from some of contemporary cinema’s biggest stars including Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Natalie Portman – as well as a multi- generational array of musicians including Patti Smith, Lykke Li, the Black Lips, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, John Lydon and more.
