I Need This!

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.

A brie(f) history of cheese - Paul Kindstedt

Before empires and royalty, before pottery and writing, before metal tools and weapons – there was cheese. As early as 8000 BCE, Neolithic farmers began a legacy of cheesemaking almost as old as civilization. Today, the world produces roughly 22 billion kilograms of cheese a year, shipped and consumed around the globe. Paul Kindstedt shares the history of one of our oldest and most beloved foods. Lesson by Paul S. Kindstedt, directed by Charlotte Cambon.

What does it mean to be a man?

What makes a man? To answer this question, London-based directorial duo Kaj Jefferies and Rosie Matheson shot this raw and unfiltered Super8 portrait to provide insight into British youth and their experiences of gender identity in the modern world. Revealing what lies behind the facade, their film challenges our socially prescribed preconceptions of traditional maleness.

"The film reveals an incredibly raw and truthful image which is reflected in the very nature of [our decision to shoot] straight onto film," the directors explain. "There are imperfections, there is only one take, and there is no hiding. It creates an honest and very personal portrait of the subject. The film is a tribute and testament to the young men who have revealed themselves to us so faithfully."

Warp Speed Chic

Arctic Monkeys – Warp Speed Chic (Full Film)

Director: Ben Chappell

 

"After spending a year documenting Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino I wanted to try and pull it all together in a short film. I spent a few weeks with the band in France documenting the recording process with my 16mm camera in September 2017. At that point I was still only hearing bits and pieces of the tunes as they were being recorded. Nearly a year later, I was on stage with them in Lyon France, shooting some of those same tunes. When the film came back from the lab I put the live songs next to my shots of them recording and found it to be quite nice. With that as a starting point, I then used James Ford's instrumental mixes of the album and I put an assortment of the images we created for this album overtop, giving a glimpse into the last year and the full progression of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino." - Ben Chappell

A Train in the Sahara

At more than 430 miles long, the Mauritania Railway has been transporting iron ore across the blistering heat of the Sahara Desert since 1963.

One of the longest and heaviest trains in the world, the 1.8-mile beast runs from the mining center of Zouerat to the port city of Nouadhibou on Africa’s Atlantic coast. The train is the bedrock of the Mauritanian economy and a lifeline to the outside world for the people who live along its route.

Hop on board the ‘Backbone of the Sahara’ with filmmaker Macgregor for an incredible journey through the stunning Western Saharan landscape.

Hoje na Gulbenkian e RTP 1

Miguel Gonçalves Mendes (José e Pilar) adapta ao cinema uma das obras mais lúcidas da cultura portuguesa – “O Labirinto da Saudade” de Eduardo Lourenço – numa viagem única pelo interior de uma mente brilhante.
Aos 94 anos, o escritor e filósofo Eduardo Lourenço projeta pelos espaços da sua memória as perguntas que até hoje nele perduram. Que traumas nos definiram enquanto povo? Quem somos? O que fizemos? Que atrocidades cometemos? Quais os caminhos que podemos seguir? Estas questões são o ponto de partida para “O Labirinto da Saudade”, um filme sobre uma “nação condenada desde a sua origem a esgotar-se em sonhos maiores do que ela própria”, mas também a celebração da vida e obra de um dos maiores autores da cultura Portuguesa.

Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is the first feature documentary film about Ursula K. Le Guin, a singular writer who defiantly held her ground on the frontier of American letters until the sheer excellence of her work, at long last, forced the mainstream to embrace fantastic literature.

 

Viewers will accompany Le Guin on an intimate journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist author, inspiring generations of women and other marginalized writers along the way. To tell this story, the film reaches into the past as well as the future – to a childhood steeped in the myths and stories of disappeared Native peoples she heard as the daughter of prominent 19th century anthropologist Alfred Kroeber.

Le Guin’s story allows audiences to reflect on science fiction’s unique role in American culture, as a conduit for our utopian dreams, apocalyptic fears, and tempestuous romance with technology. Le Guin, by elevating science fiction from mind candy to serious speculation, has given permission to younger mainstream writers like Michael Chabon, Zadie Smith, and Jonathan Lethem to explore fantastic elements in their work.

More than ever, we need to perform the kinds of thought experiments that Le Guin pioneered, to ask how we might behave as our technologies transform us beyond the wildest dreams of our grandparents. Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin explores what science fiction means to us now, and shares the story of the unassuming mother of three who showed us the limitless power of the imagination.
