FILMS IN LONDON TODAY
ALL THE WILD HORSES + Q&A with director Ivo Marloh at DocHouse (07 JUN 18:30):
- UK Premiere. A visually cinematic adventure documentary, All The Wild Horses submerges viewers in the Mongolian wilderness and throws them into the thrills of an adrenaline-fueled endurance test. Returns for a grind show run from 08 JUN.

- Combining archival footage with experimental and narrative sequences, artist and director Andrew Kötting reconstructs the true story of Ivan Mushukov, the Russian child found living with a pack of wild dogs on the streets of Moscow in the mid-1990s.
THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS 35mm at The Prince Charles (07 JUN 18:30 – £1 PCC Members’ Screening):
- In this drama, based on the H.G. Wells novel, Mary (Ann Todd) longs for Steven (Trevor Howard), a lover she turned down years ago. Later, Mary is married to Howard (Claude Rains), but meets up with Steven while on vacation in the Swiss Alps. A seemingly platonic encounter fueled by pent-up passion leads to an affair between Mary and Steven, and she must choose between the two men — the husband who loves her and the now-married man she rejected years earlier.
