¡Vivan las Antipodas!

Victor Kossakovsky

Like an exquisitely restrained Baraka, this radiant, magnificently photographed celebration of the natural wonders of the world takes us to four pairs of places directly opposite each other on Planet Earth – including New Zealand.

The Hunt


Thomas Vinterberg

Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, A Royal Affair) took the Best Actor Award at Cannes as an innocent man demonised by a child’s false accusation. “Entirely convincing… An unbearably tense drama-thriller.” — The Guardian

In My Mother’s Arms

Atia Jabarah Al-Daradji, Mohamed Jabarah Al-Daradji

This urgent, affecting, but never sentimental documentary takes us into Baghdad’s most dangerous neighbourhood, where one determined man has taken it upon himself to rescue several dozen orphans from the war-torn streets.

In the Fog

V tumane

Sergei Loznitsa

An intense, slow-burning Russian war drama that considers moral choice in the moral vacuum of occupation. “Truly eloquent and moving… Actors and landscapes alike could have come out of 19-century Russian paintings.” — Sight & Sound

Maori Boy Genius

Pietra Brettkelly

Internationally lauded Auckland filmmaker Pietra Brettkelly (The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins) accompanies 16-year-old Māori scholar Ngaa Rauuira Pumanawawhiti to Yale and a critical turning point in his education.

Our Newspaper

Nasha Gazeta

Eline Flipse

In the rough, remote Russian town where Lenin was born, a brave journalist has launched an independent newspaper produced on a computer in his lounge and delivered by hand. A darkly humorous portrait of a brave venture.

Shock Head Soul

Simon Pummell

In 1903 Judge Daniel Paul Schreber published Memoirs of My Nervous Illness, one of the most remarkable studies of madness ‘from the inside’ ever written. Documentary, drama and CGI combine to tell his remarkable story.
