Cinema Curator Mark Cosgrove and Cinema Producer Tara Judah share their highlights and must see films this September at Watershed.
They discuss the absorbing and sometimes confounding blurring of fact and fiction in three fantastic new films - The Rider, Skate Kitchen and Matangi/Maya/MIA. Enfant terrible and arch provocateur Gaspar Noe's new film Climax takes Mark completely by surprise, despite his low expectations, whilst Tara continues to revel in the singular vision of Agnes Varda's new film Faces Places, in which Varda embarks on a road trip like no other, to examine what it takes to make a meaningful piece of art.
A season of films – Working Class Heroes – still provides much food for thought 50 years after their original release, with some of the most dynamic, subversive and radical films you could hope to see. And finally there is Pawel Pawlikowski's extraordinary Cold War which Mark and Tara already predict will be one of the films of the year, if not the decade.
