The Dead Don’t Die – 12 July

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals exhibit unusual behaviours. No one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: THE DEAD DON’T DIE — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living — and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival.

Young artist Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling) has fled to West-Germany, but he continues to be tormented by the experiences he made in his childhood and youth in the Nazi years and during the GDR-regime.

Agnes by Varda – 18 July

Varda by Agnes finds her looking straight at the camera to talk about life, cinema, her life in films and the films of her life. Something of a postscript to her autobiographical The Beaches of Agnès, this is a moving and fun portrait that talks about the work of this exceptional Belgian-French director, and about the essence of cinema and the lives of the people that have inhabited, or seen her films.

Gwen – 18 July

In the stark beauty of 19th Century Snowdonia a young girl, Gwen, tries desperately to hold her home together.

The Chambermaid – 26 July
