FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A Dundee music promoter sets up shop this week in Schemers, while a nurse has to pick up after an organ trafficking deal gone wrong in 12 Hour Shift and an interpreter tries to protect her family from a massacre in Quo Vadis, Aida? An imprisoned Iranian feminist is profiled in Nasrin and there's a rerelease for feminist horror film The Woman. A pregnant woman tries to tick off a bucket list 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, Wuhan doctors' experience of the pandemic is documented in 76 Days, and chaos ensues when a radio host is bitten by a rabid bat in Ten Minutes To Midnight.
