SIGNS O’ THE TIMES

COLLECTIVE Romanian documentary about the tragic 2015 fire at Bucharest’s Colectiv club which left 27 dead and 180 injured. However, soon, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from non life- threatening wounds. Tenacious investigative journalists uncover massive fraud in the Romanian health care system, revealing the price of corruption and ultimately, the price of truth. “A traumatized society becomes easy to manipulate and to lie to. I have witnessed... an institutional lie... that was constantly repeated to a grieving population, through the media. I have seen manipulation silencing people and stopping them from asking questions...” – Alexander Nanau, director.

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH During the civil rights upheavals of the late 60s, the FBI labelled the Black Panthers “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country”, and sought to neutralise them by any means available: infiltration, surveillance, and – ultimately – the assassination of Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), the ‘black messiah’. Biopic about the betrayal, and murder, of the chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party.
