Short Synopsis: Starring James Purefoy, Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox, Kate Mara, Jason Flemyng, Derek Jacobi, Jamie Foreman and Aneurin Barnard IRONCLAD recounts one of the most violent, pivotal moments in English medieval history – when a few good men fought against insurmountable odds to defend their country from a megalomaniac, blood–drunk king. Torn from the pages of history, the devastating battle for the castle of Rochester is a true story of honour, action and excitement. Think medieval Magnificent Seven and you‘re on the right track.

Short Synopsis: For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces.
As people everywhere watch the world‘s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It‘s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they‘ve ever encountered before.

Short Synopsis: BENDA BILILI! is a real–life world music fairytale, lifting the lid on the Congolese music scene to reveal the incredible true story behind Kinshasa‘s ghetto stars, STAFF BENDA BILILI, and their distinctive musical style; a seductive mix of Congolese rumba, James Brown–esque funk, Cuban mambo, ancestral trance and Jimi Hendrix–esque flourishes.
Opening Directors Fortnight at Cannes this year, Renaud Barret and Florent de la Tullaye‘s uplifting film is a frank and intimate portrait of the band, their musical energy and social observation of the realities of life in Kinshasa. Hotly tipped to be the next BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB, BENDA BILILI! Is a rare cinematic discovery. The film follows the extraordinary journey of the band over the course of six years, from when we first encounter them living and performing on the streets, to recording their acclaimed debut album Tres, Tres Fort and headlining international music festivals.
BENDA BILILI! is the story of a dream become reality; an inspiring tale of triumph over adversity, embracing the band‘s creed; to be true to oneself, take pride, be strong, and never give up.
