Gangs of Wasseypur Part 1 (15) S
Dir: Anurag Kashyap Cast: Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui 160 mins, 2012, India, Subtitled Please note: this was screened in March 2013
This two-part epic (see details of Part 2 here) is a thrilling blend of Bollywood and Hollywood, overturning conventional genres. It's a family saga of three generations driven by a blood feud, chronicling the tough, gritty existence of life in an Indian coal mining town. The film artfully mixes ultra-violence and dark humour - the small-town criminals are not trained hit men, and their comic bumbling lightens the violence. Oozing visual style, with blackly comic dialogue, great performances and a neo-Bollywood soundtrack, there's never a dull moment in this gangland saga by one of India's up and coming directors.
Presented in partnership with Asian Arts Agency.

Much Ado About Nothing
Joss Whedon gives Shakespeare's classic comedy a contemporary spin in this dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
