Description: On the Hunting Ground made by Tian Zhuangzhuang at the invitation of the Inner Mongolia Movie Studio.

The original storyline centered around the themes of male dominance and jealousy with a complicated plot; in Tian's film, the narrative element practically disappears. Insofar as a narrative centre exists, it deals with a hunter's transgression of the Mongolian hunting code (laid down by Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century) and his subsequent penance. A semi-documentary--using local herdsmen rather than professional actors--which captures the hunting rituals, rhythms and patterns of everyday life in a Mongolian tribe.

Description: Kosovo: Can You Imagine? is about the Serbs that live in Kosovo and the lack of human rights that they have today, in the 21st century. Most of the Kosovo Serbs have been ethnically cleansed by the Albanians who create up the majority of Kosovo. Kosovo has been under UN administration since 1999 when NATO bombed Serbia for 76 days to halt a crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatism in its province of Kosovo. In the years following the war, thousands of Serbs were expelled from their homes, kidnapped and killed. Their houses, cultural and religious websites were burned and destroyed. Kosovo for the Serbs is what Jerusalem is for the Jewish people. It is the cradle of their statehood, culture and religion. Most of the necessary Serbian Christian Orthodox monasteries are in Kosovo. Today, Serbs still have a deep spiritual and traditional connection to Kosovo, a land which is being cleansed of everything Serbian.
Description: Everyone knows the storyline of the Titanic, how the biggest moving object ever fashioned by the hand of boy hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage and sank in the middle of the North Atlantic, and 1,500 lives were lost. The tragedy has been well documented in ebooks and on films. No matter how often the storyline is told, it never fails to capture the imagination. It is a storyline that has left many questions unanswered, and the programme provides an intriguing hypothesis that the ship that plummeted two miles to the bottom of the sea was not the Titanic but its sister ship the Olympic. This movie is based upon the research of Andrew Newton and contains the evidence of the British and American inquiries, the eye witness reports of survivors, newspapers of the day, photographs, video, movie and radio broadcasts. The views and opinions presented in this movie are based on current evidence and legitimate inference. It may be the ultimate conspiracy – or should it be the truth?

Description: Michael White might just be the most popular person you’ve never heard of. A notorious London theatre and movie impresario, he produced over 300 shows and films over the last 50 years. Bringing to the scene the risqué productions of Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Present and to the screen Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences, he irrevocably shaped the cultural stage of the 1970s London. Playboy, gambler, bon vivant, mate of the rich and famous, he is actually in his eighties and still enjoys partying like there’s no tomorrow. In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Gracie Otto introduces us to this larger-than-life phenomenon. Featuring interviews with 50 of his closest mates including Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, John Waters and Barry Humphries and, of course, the boy himself, Otto pays a vibrant tribute to a fascinating entertainer.
Description: When Brazil won the fight vs Paraguay in 1870, they spared the life, but not the reputation of the girl they claimed was the chief villain in the bloodshed. Irish-born Eliza Lynch, lifetime partner of dictator Francisco Solano López, was painted by Brazil as a puppet master, thief and whore, and in 1991 included alongside Lucretia Borgia and Catherine the Nice in a ebook entitled The World’s Wickedest Women. In Paraguay, the country where she lived as a beloved uncrowned queen, she is a national heroine. Fascinated by the contradiction, Irish academics Michael Lillis and Ronan Fanning embarked on 18 years of research to write a biography which forms the basis of Alan Gilsenan’s special and compassionate documentary. Blending interviews with re-enactments of Eliza’s life – wonderfully performed by actress Maria Doyle – Gilsenan thoughtfully breathes humanity into a portrait of a much maligned woman.
Description: ‘You have no choice about being here, you’ll have no choice about when you leave’ proclaims a girl in Xiaolu Guo’s recent film, a documentary about the private and physical adventures of the folks of London’s East End. Herself an immigrant to the area, Guo’s sensitive hero studies tip at an affinity with the push and pull of feelings of alienation, a theme she has previously explored as a filmmaker (She a Chinese, LFF 2009) and novelist (A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers). This empathy is also apparent in her playful stylistic approach that layers Warhol-esque news reports, archival material and a soundtrack including Linton Kwesi Johnson and Fela Kuti, to comment on the human cost of capitalism. The resulting movie is both a penetrating portrait of a frenetic zone that feels deeply authentic, and a strong piece of protest film.
Description: Taşkafa is a true dog and also a legend on the roads of Istanbul. John Berger starts Taşkafa’s story, reading from his novel, King, the storyline of the disappearance of a community said from a dog’s perspective. The area’s ordinary folks – taxi drivers, shopkeepers, road traders – care deeply about the welfare of the city’s road dogs and they say us stories about Taşkafa and their another canine neighbours. The animals are a symbol of community living, where folks (and dogs) look out for every other, but this is a community in transition; one from which dogs are starting to be expelled. Eccentric, amusing and very warm, the movie is a strong indictment of the impact of global politics and the economic appropriation of public zone but, even more, it is a tribute to both the spirit of resistance and to town life that can accommodate folks and dogs together.
Description: This distinctly private adventure into the artistic chances of independent movie is not to be missed. Jonas Mekas, Jean-Pierre Gorin, Robert Kramer and many another visionaries and mavericks of the silver screen – as well as a ebook seller, a critic and a psychoanalyst – discuss what cinema has meant to them, what it is and what it should be and, implicitly, how it has changed over the 18 years in which this movie was shot. Director Boris Lehman leads the charge, drawing in moments of absurdist humour and inventive camera work; he keeps things raw and spontaneous. His encounters with the actually much-missed Jean Rouch and Stephen Dwoskin are particularly touching and stand testament to their private playfulness and candour. An engaging, absorbing, epic odyssey of a movie.
