The directors of this year's Raindance festival have just announced their full film line-up, and it's strong on British films, including Ben Wheatley's Down Terrace, The Cry Of The Owl with Paddy Considine, and the already legendary low-budget zombie feature Cloin, allegedly made for just 45 quid. The usual impressive Japanese strand will also be in evidence, with Sachi Hamano making a personal appearance to introduce her eagerly anticipated Lily Festival, a gently playful tale of romance in later life. Attendees can also look forward to the UK premiere of Love Exposure.
Raindance's big hitters include a last chance to see the late great David Carradine as he stars in David Miller's My Suicide, and the UK premiere of Modern Love Is Automatic, exploring the life of a dominatrix. Son Of The Sunshine tells the story of a young man with Tourette's syndrome and extraordinary healing abilities, whilst the documentary strand includes They Call It Acid, a fascinating look back at acid house culture with interviews from many of the key players.
Raindance runs between 30 September and 11 October. For further information visit http://www.raindance.co.uk
