ERASE AND FORGET + Q&A with director Andrea Zimmerman & author David Neiwert at Genesis Cinema (18:45):
ERASE AND FORGET is an investigative documentary which charts the extraordinary life and times of Bo Gritz, one of America’s highest decorated veterans and the ‘inspiration’ for Rambo and Brando’s Colonel Kurtz. Director Andrea Zimmerman will be in discussion with David Neiwert, expert in American right-wing extremism and author of Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right (Verso).
SCREAM FOR ME SARAJEVO + RECORDED Q&A at Stratford Picturehouse (17 APR 20:15 – other Picturehouses available):
Sarajevo in 1994 was a city under siege. Mortars and grenades rained down on the city, killing indiscriminately every day. Amongst the madness, would it be possible to persuade a global rock star to come and play a show for local fans? The film will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Bruce Dickinson.
SOSHANA: EVERYWHERE ALONE + INTRO at Austrian Cultural Forum (17 APR 19:00):
In 1938 at the age of 11, the painter Soshana fled her native Vienna together with her family to escape National Socialism. They travelled first to Switzerland and then onto London and the US.

TUE 17 // TODAY’S GRIND SHOWS
JUPITER’S MOON at Whirled Cinema (17 APR 20:00):
The director of the critically acclaimed WHITE GOD employs his uniquely talented eye to create this riveting supernatural thriller. Adorned with heart-pounding car chases and sensational gunfights that are complemented by fluid and kinetic camerawork, Kornél Mundruczó brings spectacle that rivals any Hollywood production to tell a timely European story.
WESTERN at ArtHouse Crouch End (17 APR 18:00):
A thriller on the frontier of Eastern Europe follows a group of German construction workers who have travelled to a remote site in the Bulgarian countryside for work. The foreign land awakens the men’s sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences.
