Big In Japan

Things are looking bleak for the members of rock band Tennis Pro. They’ve been struggling to connect to an audience in the Seattle music scene, with a recent run of shows drawing sparse crowds and uninspiring day jobs that are quickly eclipsing their dreams.  So when an opportunity arises to take their act on the road to Japan - where the allure of a second chance at recognition awaits them - they can’t refuse.  Embarking on their Tokyo musical odyssey, the guys experience all the thrills and setbacks of taking their music into unknown territory (at least to them) and in the process learn a thing or two about themselves. It’s just possible they won’t fade away.

Four Corners is a multi-thread coming of age thriller set in the Cape Flats, a marginal South African community dominated by the unique and volatile sub culture of the 26's and the 28's - two factions of the century old Numbers Gangs. It is here where thirteen-year-old chess prodigy Ricardo Galam finds himself at a crossroads, lured in equal measure by the thrill of warfare on the chessboard and the seductive prestige of joining a powerful street gang.  Over the course of a week, four lives unexpectedly converge as the destinies of a reformed prison general, a local cop, a charismatic gang leader and a surgeon back from London intersect with a young boy in the sub culture of Cape Flats' urban youth gangs.  At times raw and violent, at others touching and true, Four Corners paints a haunting portrait of life in the underworld of the Cape Flats.

Poverty Inc.

'I see multiple colonial governors,' says Ghanaian software entrepreneur Herman Chinery-Hesse of the international development establishment in Africa. The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry - the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, POVERTY, INC. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore.

Still

A stunning performance from Irish actor Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones) fuels this dramatic thriller about a photographer, Tom Carver.   Tom is stumbling blindly towards a crossroads in his life, thrown out of focus by the death of his teenage son a year earlier in a car accident. One day a chance and seemingly unimportant confrontation between Tom and a fifteen year old boy brings his life and responsibilities to the fore.  A battle of wills with the gang of kids develops, seemingly trivial and childish altercations begin to take a considerable sinister direction.  Tom retreats ever inwards as his life starts to unravel, until at last it reaches its painful and shattering climax.  In his breakout debut film, director Simon Blake paints a gritty, menacing portrait of North London's cruel urban environs, where the dividing lines between evil and innocence are blurred.

Shaul, an Israeli, and Nizar, a Palestinian, seem to have little in common, but for a shared spirit of entrepreneurship. They create a solar energy company with plans to bring renewable energy to communities in the Palestinian territories. Support for their venture is difficult to gain. From families who question them, to community members who threaten them, and government policies that make collaboration nearly impossible, Shaul and Nizar face many obstacles. Through everything, they grow to respect and trust one another. But though they continue to believe in their project, they recognize that their company cannot succeed without change. They take their story to the Internet and inspire others to work together. What began as a partnership for business becomes a partnership for peace.
