Little Joe (2019) // Jessica Hausner

Programme Manager: Evi

"Jessica Hausner’s witty and mysterious sci-fi thriller is a playful look into the ethics of consumerist-driven scientific advancements, and into the ever bewildering nature of human psychology. With wonderfully unsettling performances from the talented Emily Beecham, Ben Whishaw and Kerry Fox, you’re in for an adventure!"

Persian Lessons (2020) // Vadim Perelman

Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel

"Could you create a language to save your life?

Inspired by true events, this tension-packed drama sees one young Jewish man craft a web of lies in his desperate attempt to escape execution in a German camp. Persian Lessons is a story of language creation and the value of returning the names to the victims of atrocity."

Palm Springs (2020) // Max Barbakow

Marketing Officer: Kirsty

"Groundhog Day meets alternative rom com in Palm Springs, which stars Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti as two wedding guests who find themselves stuck in a time loop. Although the concept has been done before, this existential sci-fi felt unique and had plenty of its own charms. A witty, wonderfully wacky and surprisingly poignant debut from Max Barbakow."

Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) // Hayao Miyazaki

Education Recommends

Ahead of Anime Day, our Education team recommends Kiki's Delivery Service (U). One of Hayao Miyazaki's early works, this coming-of-age story follows a young witch who must overcome the challenges of being independent for the first time. A charming animation which explores themes that many of our young audience members will relate to!
