Childish (Country: UK; Year: 2024; Director: Emily Munro)
The child in film is bounded by the frame and by the adult gaze. Can children in this situation find autonomy? How does the child through time resist oppression, violence and control?
COP26Film (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Luke Fowler)
Shot in Glasgow during the 26th UN Climate Change Conference in 2021. A record of security systems, cordons, and the omnipresence of police helicopters, and of mass protests, the raiding of a squat containing environmental activists, and the voices of grassroots collectives from the Global South.
Lone Star Tick (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Ewan McIntosh)
A young couple infiltrate a carbon capture facility near Inverness as part of an eco-resistance action, as the spectre of climate crisis haunts the dissolution of their relationship.
Milkgum (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Marcelle Nuke)
Sel, an isolated escort and young mother, undergoes an unnerving transformation after learning that an Oedipal creature, the Milkgum, has been ensnaring the men in her life.
Next In Line (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Seyma Dag)
A refugee doctor faces a difficult decision at her job centre meeting: either she works as a cleaner or gets sanctioned.
The Sound Of The Wind (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Maria Pankova)
On 24 February 2022, chef Yulia loses her former life and becomes a refugee, along with her two adopted daughters, fleeing the war in Ukraine. She now works as a butcher in Scotland and her husband is in one of the most dangerous spots on the frontlines.
