(available 13th April 23rd May)
English Language Trailer https://vimeo.com/406547948
The director of much-loved world cinema
classics The Story of the Weeping Camel and The Cave of
the Yellow Dog transports us once again to the spectacular
beauty of the Mongolian steppe, this time looking at the
encroachment of modernity and its effect on nomadic lifestyles
that have changed little in hundreds of years. Following
the sudden death of the leader of a campaign against mining
companies who are destroying the habitat on which they depend,
his eleven-year-old son steps up to carry on his David vs
Goliath fight, an old Mongolian folk tale being both his
inspiration and his secret weapon.

YourScreen Interview with Fanny Sidney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDnGl1P8OZc
Five darkly humorous, interlinking
stories explore our increasing dependence upon digital media.
Cyberstalking, social media, online shopping, swipe dating,
vlogging - all come under its insightful gaze. Starring
Fanny Sidney from Netflix hit Call MyAgent, Selfie is much
cleverer proposition than most anthology or portmanteau
films,with characters and plot lines recurring throughout
the different stories. As the web connections grow, the
film builds towards a grande finale set at a wedding on
an island with no mobile phone signal - until someone finds
one, leading to an hilarious showdown.

Humorist (available 12th March 25th April)
English Language Trailer
A middle-aged man steps out in front
of an applauding crowd. "Hey Lady! How about a photo?"
Theopening line of comedian Boris Arkadiev's winning if
timeworn routine, the one that has brought him affluence,
hordes of adoring fans and, most importantly for a Jew in
the Soviet Russia of 1984, the approval of the authorities.
Trouble is, Boris is sick to the back teeth of it. Once
a serious writerwith a published novel under his belt, he
now has to trot out his routine 'The Mellow Season' time
after time after time, at public events, at parties thrown
by army generals, anytime the KGB goons demand his services.
Introduced to American 'insult humour' by a friend recently
returned from LA,Boris decides it's time to work up some
new, edgier material, and chooses the most inappropriate
setting imaginable for its first airing.

She is growing tired of this and longs for some freedom.
She thinks of quitting sports but is afraid to hurt her
fathers feelings. This summer, Maciejs new trainee
Igor joins them on their way. Wiktoria will find the secretive
boy much more interesting than tennis, and Maciej will have
to watch his own dreams and his daughters plans go
