The mid-20th century in communist Poland. Adam lives with his mother, who is persecuted by the state security service. Adam’s father fought in World War II as a pilot, defending Britain, and has not been heard from since. It’s not clear if he stayed in England or returned and is hiding to avoid persecution. Packages and postcards arrive from him, but Adam, who has never seen his father, suspects someone else is sending them. At school he keeps dreaming that his father will one day land in the sports field at his school in his Spitfire, raising dust from which he will emerge alive, heroic and magnificent. One day, as the boy is watching Jean-Luc Godard’s “Contempt” at the cinema, he is transported to the young Brigitte Bardot’s dressing room and her world of film and music stars. Maestro Majewski’s latest film, based on his novel “Pilgrimage to the Tomb of Brigitte Bardot the Wonderful”, in which he settles accounts with his youth, childhood, and all that Poland meant to him.

Paolo Rossi - The Heart of a Legend

Paolo Rossi

2020 / 1h 30mins / Documentary

DIRECTORS: Gianluca Fellini, Michela Scolari

STARS: Giancarlo Antognoni, Roberto Baggio, Zbigniew Boniek, Antonio Cabrini, Franco Carraro, Alberto Cerruti, Fedele Confalonieri, Gabriele Gravina, Kurt Hamrin, Gianni Infantino, Leovegildo Júnior, Diego Maradona, Luciano Moggi, Pelé, Michel Platini, Paolo Rossi, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Marco Tardelli

“PAOLO ROSSI” is a 90-min feature documentary about Paolo Rossi, who as a child grew up in straightened circumstances not unlike the ones that young Sami currently struggles with. We hear his story though a remarkable retelling, as he speaks to the orphans about being impoverished and sickly in a small village in Tuscany. He speaks passionately about how he managed to achieve his greatest dream-to become the 1982 World Champion, kicking his way into history. Join Paolo on his emotional odyssey, as he details his life, his winding journey, along with that of his friends Falcao, Platini, Maradona, Pele, Zico, Rummenigge, Tardelli, Cabrini, Zoff and Boniek. When viewed through the lens of the street children, the forgotten Romanian orphans, it is a powerful reminder to all of us that a dream means nothing if not pursued with love and respect. The children, like the viewer, see that a real champion is first of all a champion in his heart.

Bucharest, once a jewel on the Danube known as “Little Paris,” is a city of contradictions. For decades, below the beautiful neoclassical buildings thousands of homeless children have roamed the streets. In 2019, the plague continues. The frail, forgotten orphans still die in enormous numbers every year.

To so many they are invisible, but not to the non-profit Parada and their extremely committed volunteers. Made up of soccer players and artists, these men and women devote their time to the street children and give the orphans a chance to hope and dream so that as they grow, they may learn to resist, live, and even love.

“A Champion is a Dreamer who never gives up” World Champion Italian soccer player Paolo Rossi said to little Sami, an 11-year-old orphan who longs to be a soccer champion like him. Rossi, as well as many other champions: Pele, Maradona, Cabrini, Tardelli, Zoff, Rummenigge, Antognoni, Boniek, R. Baggio, Platini, Zico and Falcao-came from troubled pasts, fighting through tragedy and terrible childhoods to achieve their goals, and become legendary.

Synopsis: When Halley’s comet made it’s closest approach to the Earth in 1910, several people killed themselves out of contagious fear and panic. People started to confess love, to come out to the whole world, to celebrate sex, orgies or start to commit suicide or to get criminal. Let’s turn the most crazy, the funniest & intimate stories of the comet panic from 1910 and 1986 into a wonderful movie.

Story: Throughout history, there’s always been a bit of panic when comets approached the sun, burning off into long, ominous tails. But in the months preceding Halley’s flyby of Earth on May 19, 1910, folks got real creative with their anxiety. It didn’t help that a few months earlier, The New York Times had announced that one astronomer theorized that the comet would unceremoniously end life as we know it. For thousands of years of human civilization, comets have come and gone, yet we’re still here.

Halley’s Comet: It is a “periodic” comet and returns to Earth’s vicinity about every 75 years. The last time it was here was in 1986, and it is projected to return in 2061. Halley is the only known short-period comet that is clearly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime. The comet’s pass in 1910 was particularly spectacular, as the comet flew by about 13.9 million miles. One of the substances discovered in the tail by spectroscopic analysis was the toxic gas cyanogen, which led astronomers to claim that, when Earth passed through the tail, the gas “would impregnate the atmosphere and possibly snuff out all life on the planet.” His pronouncement led to panicked buying of gas masks and quack “anti-comet pills” and “anti-comet umbrellas” by the public.

MCMX means 1910. The year.

Give Them Wings

Give Them Wings

2021 / Drama

DIRECTOR: Sean Cronin

STARRING: Daniel Watson, Toyah Willcox, Bill Fellows

Give Them Wings is based on the autobiography of severely disabled football fan Paul Hodgson. Diagnosed with childhood meningitis aged just 10 months, Paul’s parents were told he would never move or speak.

Set in 1989, the film takes us through Paul’s incredible journey of heartbreak, suffering, discrimination and love, recounting his struggle to care for his mother, his experience of the Community Care system, education and employment, the loyalty of his friends and finally finding acceptance with both his father and the wider world.

Awarded Best UK Feature and Best British Feature at the 2021 London Independant Film Awards, Give Them Wings follows in the footsteps of other real human interest stories which embrace the discrimination of the disabled and turn it on its head, such as My Left Foot, Billy Elliot, The Intouchables and I Daniel Blake.

‘Beautifully shot, totally immersed in the world from a design perspective but what smacks you between the eyes are the performances. Incredible. Toyah is sublime, the son exquisite and their painful relationship with the father just heart wrenching…up there with the best.

Election Night

Election Night

2020 / 1h 40mins / Horror, Thriler

DIRECTOR: Neil Monaghan

STARRING: Samantha Loxley, Rebecca Ferdinando, Sean Cronin

The Britain of Election Night is a society where the public has grown cynical about the establishment and traditional politicians. Many believe in a new optimism coming from a revitalised left. But threatening to spoil the party is a new populist far-right movement headed by a former newspaper baron.

Our film is set on the night of the election as five liberal-minded friends gather to watch the results on television, as politicos do. It’s a drink-fuelled night that could be a huge celebration. But outside far-right supporters are rioting and claiming a rigged election. And then there’s a knock on the door. Three people desperately seek shelter from the violence. It’s only when the visitors are welcomed in that they show their true colours.

As the tight election result turns in favour of the far-right, the visitors seize control. Suddenly we’re into a full-on home-invasion movie, with the far-right acting out their new policies of violence and hate towards the establishment.

The film plays out a microcosm of the horrors our world could face if society stays as politically messed up as it is today.

Election Night is a pressure-cooker of a movie, a story that’s crying out to be told. A tense thriller. A violent, bloody horror. And a call to arms to the political dangers that lie ahead for all of us.
