As a result of the Spanish-American War in 1898, Cuba is the epicentre of two things: it was the start of American internationalism imperialism, and it was the first war in which cinema played a significant role. Austrian Hubert Sauper ponders questions about the lingering effects.

Yalda, A Night For Forgiveness

Drama

Language: Farsi with English subtitles

Unclassified 15+

In Iran many crimes are punishable by death, but this can be averted if the victim’s family forgives and accepts blood money. Maryam, forced into a “temporary marriage” with a much older man, fronts a voting TV audience to plead for her life. Based on a real, top- rating Iranian TV show, this is a cleverly-scripted and impassioned overview of the patriarchal structures that enmesh the unfortunate young woman at the eye of the televisual storm, facing the prospect of paying an eye for an eye.

2000 Songs of Farida

Drama

Language: Uzbek with English subtitles

Unclassified 15+

An isolated landowner brings home a new wife as his other wives have not produced an heir. Tensions inevitably surface, heightened by the fact that it is 1920 and the Bolsheviks are advancing. This house cannot endure, and the climax is pure Tarkovsky. But if you appreciate the careful construction of images, this is a film that will amaze. The care and intricacy of the flowing long takes is truly impressive. In the hands of an inventive filmmaker, there is infinite variety in limited means.

Jumbo

Coming of Age, Romance, Youth/Teen

Language: French with English subtitles

Unclassified 18+

You want weird? We’ve got you covered. Jeanne (Noémie Merlant from Portrait of a Lady on Fire) falls in love with a giant tilt-a-
whirl. You want stranger still? The machine falls in love with her
too. But despite some steamy, or rather oily, sex, the path of true
love between woman and fairground attraction is rarely smooth. Spielberg meets Freud in this delirious film, and the moral? It doesn’t matter who you love, so long as you’re prepared to go all the way.

Wild Swords

Action, Drama, Mystery

Language: Chinese with English subtitles

Unclassified 15+

The martial swordfight film is one of the glories of Chinese cinema, and recent years have seen a move to combine the visceral pleasures of graceful action with a more artistic reflection on style and narrative intrigue. Amidst forests of saturated green and rainstorms of sudden ferocity, two clans are engaged in all-consuming rivalry, but the wildcard is a mysterious outsider. Produced by Feng Xiao-gang (I Am Not Madame Bovary), Wild Swords follows in the rich tradition of Crouching Tiger as master swordsmen circle each other intent on reputation and revenge.
