Featured attraction: The People’s Film Club and Skin Deep present SORRY TO BOTHER YOU + PANEL at Genesis Cinema (11 DEC 18:30): “No fence-sitting here, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU wallops its targets. Drenched in self-awareness, it is fantastically refreshing, defiantly announcing Riley as a radical new voice.” – Alex Godfrey, Empire Magazine.

  • In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, California, Cassius “Cash” Green lives with his girlfriend Detroit in his Uncle’s garage.

THEATRE OF WAR at DocHouse (11 DEC 21:00):

  • A mix of Argentinian and British veterans are brought together to re-enact their experiences during the Falklands War. Through a handful of staged sequences, they revisit the visions that haunt them and discuss the muddy politics.
