FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A pregnant woman tries to tick off a bucket list this week in Baby Done, there's an Indian rags to riches tale in The White Tiger, and new love blooms during Ramadan in Breaking Fast - see our interview with director Mike Mosallam. Death threats prompt suspicion among genocide researchers in The Exception and Wuhan doctors' experience of the pandemic is documented in 76 Days. Chaos ensues when a radio host is bitten by a rabid bat in Ten Minutes To Midnight, while the early life of David Bowie is imagined in Stardust and a Soviet atrocity is remembered in Dear Comrades! The surveillance of Martin Luther King Jr is explored in MLK/FBI, a director spills family secrets in Film About A Father Who, and prejudice in artificial intelligence is the subject of Coded Bias. Sisters compete over a man who might be a vampire in Climate Of The Hunter - see what director Mickey Reece had to say about it - while a woman flees a killer in Hunted. A theme park built around a volcano proves to be a mistake in Skyfire and rebels prepare to take on alien wizards in Battle In Space: The Armada Attacks.
