HAVE A NICE DAY at Watermans (26 APR 14:00 & 21:00):

A hard rain is about to fall on a small town in Southern China. News of a robbery spreads fast, and over the course of one night everyone starts looking for the stolen swag. A whirlwind neo-noir, and a pioneering slice of independent Chinese animation.

MARLINA THE MURDERER IN FOUR ACTS at ArtHouse Crouch End (26 APR 12:40):

When a young widow is raped and and her cattle are stolen, she fights back and kills several of her attackers. She embarks on a journey of redemption and empowerment, but the ghost of one of the men she killed returns to haunt her.

SAFARI at DocHouse (26 APR 20:20):

Maverick Austrian director Ulrich Seidl returns with this look at the grotesque world of trophy hunting and the luxury tourist trade it attracts. To paraphrase Seidl, SAFARI is a vacation movie about killing; a killer movie about human nature.
