In Cinemas

Difret
Dir: Zeresenay Mehari; UK release March 6 (Soda Pictures)
Produced by Angelina Jolie, Difret is a very impressive piece of work, at once human in scale and urgent in scope.

 

Leviathan
Dir: Andrey Zvyagintsev; UK release March 2 (Artificial Eye)
Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, Andrey Zvyagintsev’s epic new work is a masterpiece.

 

Home Entertainment

Manakamana
Dir: Stephanie Spray & Pacho Velez; UK release February 9 (Dogwoof)
A highly recommended trip to another place, and another sense of time.

 

Southern District
Dir: Juan Carlos Valdivia; UK release January 26 (Axiom Films)
This searing indictment of the Bolivian upper classes is, first and foremost, an exceptionally creation celebration of the photographed image.
