Goethe présente Beuys (STF)
A look at the life, art and politics of influential, controversial German artist Joseph Beuys. Using previously unpublished audio and film footage, Andres Veiel creates an associative, loose portrait including personal aspects of Beuy’s childhood, his positions on art, film extracts of his art happenings and scenes of his early involvement in the Green party.

He wanted a revolution – and found it within his obscure juxtaposition of objects which occasionally provoked laughter. Revolutions need laughter, he proclaimed. He wanted to create art that people not only wanted to participate in, but art that people ‘must’ participate in. Sounds like a grand statement, but coming from him and the way he is depicted within Beuys, while watching, it seemed almost feasible.

“One of the most exciting documentaries of the last few years.”

Venus (STF)
"Genders, generations and cultures collide in this comedy about the modern family unit. A South Asian transgender woman sees her life flipped on its head when she meets a "white" teenaged son she didn’t know she had. Montrealer Eisha Marjara gives a fresh take in her directing style, delivering a resounding plea for casting off gender stereotypes."-

Before we vanish (STA)
In his twentieth film, acclaimed horror director Kiyoshi Kurosawa reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery. Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence - good, evil, property, family, belonging - leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, BEFORE WE VANISH reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema's most unique auteurs - and the value of the human spirit.

The Death of Stalin (STF)
The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

Metric - Dreams so real
Dreams So Real, the feature-length 4k concert documentary, captures Canadian rock group Metric’s last live performance of a year-long sold-out world tour.

The film features fan favourites from over five albums including indelible hits Breathing Underwater, Gold Girls Guns and Help I’m Alive. With plenty of arena-worthy moments, Dreams So Real is a stunning recreation of an incredibly special evening.
