I, Daniel Blake (15) (100 mins) – Monday 10th April, 8pm
A middle-aged carpenter, who requires state welfare after suffering a heart attack, is joined by a single mother in a similar scenario. Loach’s film pulls no punches. It’s direct, unsparing and outspoken in its criticism of a callous welfare system.
A United Kingdom (12A)(111 mins) – Saturday 29th April, 8pm
Tells the inspiring story of Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland(modern Botswana) and Ruth Williams, the London office worker that he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. Seretse and Ruth defied family, apartheid and empire.
Coco and Igor (15) (120 mins) – Monday 8th May, 8pm
The attraction between Coco and Stravinsky is immediate, despite Coco’s recent bereavement and the fact that Stravinsky is accompanied in his exile by his terminally-ill wife and 4 children. As the two embark on a passionate affair, a subtle power-play ensues between the traditional Katarina, and the modern Coco.
The Act of Killing (E) (115 mins) – Wednesday 17th May, 8pm
A documentary which challenges former Indonesian death-squad leaders to re-enact their mass killings in whichever cinematic genres they wish, including classic Hollywood crime scenarios and lavish musical numbers.
