Thunder Road  (2018) // Jim Cummings

Marketing Officer: Kirsty

"This film is a true hidden gem. A MUST watch. Directed and written by its star Jim Cummings, Thunder Road follows the story of a man amidst a breakdown after his mother's passing and his wife leaves him. Cumming's effortlessly glides from tragic heartfelt emotion to hilarious dark comedy in seconds! A master of his craft. You'll almost certainly be laughing and crying during this unique, complex and refreshing indie film."

Tomboy (2011) // Céline Sciamma

Belmont Customer: Ewan

"Céline Sciamma's exploration of gender and adolescence follows 10-year-old Laure as they pass themselves off as a young boy called Mickaël. An increasingly important film that challenges gender stereotypes, and the social constructs that restrict the freedom to be ourselves"

"In our divided times, here is a very refreshing podcast where two oppositional ideas are unpacked. Poet and educator Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan is joined by a guest each week to deconstruct a range topics that at first seem irreconcilable opposites but are often just hiding much needed nuance."

The Honjin Murders // Seishi Yokomizo

Programme Officer: Raymah

"A rural snowy village celebrates a big wedding which tragically ends in death. Regarded as one of Japan’s finest mystery novels, The Honjin Murders is an expertly crafted and witty locked room mystery which introduces one of Japan’s most prolific fictional detectives.

Yokomizo pays loving tongue-in-cheek references to mystery writers which will have you making notes for all the stories and authors you may not yet have discovered for yourself and have you wishing that hopefully more of his own oeuvre gets translated soon."
