First Look image released from Save The Cinema, a Sky Original

Sky today unveiled a First Look image of Samantha Morton in the Sky Original film Save The Cinema. Inspired by the extraordinary real-life events sparked by tenacious hairdresser Liz Evans (Samantha Morton), Save The Cinema illustrates how the resolve of a small Welsh town, inspired by the magic of cinema, was able to bring Tinseltown to their doorstep.

The sleepy town of Carmarthen in Wales is not exactly the first place to spring to mind when thinking of Hollywood blockbusters. But this changed in 1993 when the town council made the unwelcome announcement that The Lyric Theatre – the town's much-loved but financially stricken cinema – would be demolished so a shopping centre could be built in its place.  

It's down to Liz Evans, hairdresser and linchpin to the local community, to stand up for the ailing cinema and stop the bulldozers. As she and her friends barricade themselves in the theatre, she reaches out to postman turned town councillor Richard (Tom Felton) for help - and they come up with a grand plan.  

To revitalise the cinema and stop the council taking the heart of the community away, a desperate Liz persuades Richard to write to Hollywood to ask for a helping hand. One late night phone call later and one of Hollywood's most legendary filmmakers throws The Lyric a monster-sized lifeline and a premiere Carmarthen will never forget. But will this be enough to save The Lyric?  

Save The Cinema features an all-star cast including Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them), Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), Adeel Akhtar (Enola Holmes), Erin Richards (Gotham), Owain Yeoman (Emergence), Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes), Colm Meaney (Gangs Of London), Rhod Gilbert (Have I Got News For You) and Keith Allen (Kingsman: The Golden Circle).  The film is directed by Sara Sugarman (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen) and co-produced by Sky and Future Artists Entertainment in association with Head Gear Films, LipSync and Ffilm Cymru.  

Save The Cinema, a Sky Original will be released on Sky Cinema and in cinemas from 14 January 2022. The film will also be available on streaming service NOW via the Sky Cinema Membership.

BBC announces feature length documentary The Last Mountain

The compelling story of 30-year-old climber Tom Ballard, who disappeared on one of the Himalayas most deadly mountains in February 2019. Tom was the son of mountaineer, Alison Hargreaves who perished on K2 in 1995. Mother and son, two of the greatest climbers of all time, died at almost the same age, in the same mountain range, both doing what they loved best.

The 105 minute feature length film is directed by Emmy award winning filmmaker, Chris Terrill (Alison's Last Mountain) and produced by award winning producer Julia Nottingham (Skate Kitchen), and BAFTA award winning documentary filmmaker Olivia Lichtenstein (Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don't Know Me).

This is the compelling story of 30-yr-old climber Tom Ballard, who disappeared on one of the Himalayas most deadly mountains in February 2019. Tom was the son of mountaineer Alison Hargreaves, who perished on K2 in 1995. Mother and son, two of the greatest climbers of all time, died at almost the same age, in the same mountain range, both doing what they loved best. They now lie forever encased in the ice of the high Himalayas. Left behind to cope with the enduring tragedy are Tom's sister, Kate and their father, Jim.

In 1995, Jim Ballard took his children, Tom, 6 and Kate, 4 on an expedition to K2's basecamp to say farewell to their mother, the result was a BBC film, Alison's Last Mountain. Now, The Last Mountain follows Kate Ballard on a parallel trip to say goodbye to her brother on Nanga Parbat. Using archive footage from 1995 and Tom's own extraordinary footage taken up until the days before his death, the film explores what made Tom continue his ascent with Italian climber, Daniele Nardi after the other two members of the expedition turned back. Tom had always followed his credo to 'listen' to the mountain and climb as though he were a part of it, a moving piece of rock or ice.

Combining 25 years of intimate, unseen family archive with footage of the family that director, Chris Terrill, has shot in the years since Alison's passing, the documentary tells the unforgettable story of a family who lived and were prepared to die for the love of scaling the icy heights of the world's highest peaks, and explores what it is that drives people to pit themselves against nature at its most ferocious and unforgiving.

Patrick Holland, Director of Factual, Arts and Classical Music, says: "This is a deeply personal, deeply moving film about an extraordinary family and their passion to live life at the extremes. We are hugely privileged to be allowed on this journey, a pilgrimage into the mountains, following Kate Ballard as she says goodbye to her brother, Tom.  I'd like to thank Kate and Jim for sharing their story and Chris Terrill for making this elegiac, awe-inspiring and haunting film."

New Frida Kahlo documentary FRIDA. VIVA LA VIDA out from 25th October


Synopsis:

Frida Kahlo, the artist who more than any other was able to build an autobiography through pictures, could tell her story with such intensity: physical pain, her miscarriages, the tragedy of love and betrayal, and her political commitment.

After her death, Frida became a pop icon who could draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to exhibitions dedicated to her, as well as inspire books, comics, songs, films and even fashion shows. But who was Frida in real life? And how much energy and vitality are released from her paintings even when they portray pain and suffering?

Frida. Viva La Vida, the documentary-film directed by Giovanni Troilo, produced by Ballandi Arts and Nexo Digital, presents the six chapters of a journey in search of Frida, into the heart of Mexico, amid cactuses, monkeys, deer and parrots, alternating exclusive interviews, with period documents, evocative reconstructions and works by Kahlo herself, including the most famous self-portraits (from the one with Diego Rivera in 1931 to The Two Fridas in 1939, from The Broken Column of 1944 to The Wounded Deer of 1946).

Dazzler Media presents Frida. Viva La Vida on DVD and Download-to-Own from 25th October

Getting Away With Murder(s) - UK Theatrical Release from October 1st


Almost 1 million people in 22 countries carried out the unprovoked murder of 11 million innocent men, women and children.

99% of those responsible were never prosecuted; most were never even questioned.

The Allies knew what their crime was.

The Allies knew where a great many of the murderers could be found - Germany, Austria, Italy, the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and numerous countries in South America.

The Allies had an endless wealth of evidence to present to the courts.

The Allies unanimously agreed to prosecute those responsible when they drew up The London Agreement in August 1945.

But, after the late 1940s, these very same Allies did almost nothing.

Why?

Director David Wilkinson’s sole motivation for making GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER(S) was to find out precisely why so many were actively permitted to get away with their crime(s) – the crime of mass murder on an industrial scale. 

GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER(S) will be in UK cinemas from 1st October.

Sky today announces its release of Sky Original film Mass, starring Emmy Award winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Martha Plimpton (The Goonies) and Tony Award winner Reed Birney (House of Cards).

While it's a small and intimate film it grapples with large and urgent themes. The leading actors give four unforgettable performances of such emotional scale, and it all comes together in one very formidable experience. More than anything, I am honoured to share their work with the world."

Set predominantly on one set, this visually unique film looks at two sets of parents (Birney and Dowd, Isaacs and Plimpton), who years after an unspeakable tragedy tore their lives apart, agree to talk privately in an attempt to move forward. In Fran Kranz's writing and directing debut, he thoughtfully examines their journey of grief, anger, and acceptance by coming face-to-face with the ones who have been left behind.

Julia Stuart, Director of Original Films at Sky comments: "It is a great privilege for us to bring Kranz's writer-director debut Mass to a wider audience, as it joins our Sky Original film line-up for 2022.

California 1974. Family photograph. Copyright Hawking Estate

Sky has today revealed an exclusive first look image, a never-seen-before family photograph, for highly anticipated Sky Original documentary Hawking: Can You Hear Me? The 90-min theatrical documentary, which explores the remarkable human story of Professor Stephen Hawking through unprecedented access to his family and their private archives, is set to premiere on Sky Documentaries and NOW on Monday 20 September.

This never-seen-before family photograph features Professor Stephen Hawking with his then wife Jane, son Robert and daughter Lucy on their California estate in 1974.

The world-famous cosmologist, Stephen Hawking, died in March of 2018. Now his family, friends and colleagues speak candidly, for the first time, about the unseen world behind Hawking's rise to the status of gilded genius and international icon. What was the true human cost – to himself and those around him – of his genius? This documentary explores the incredible life of this iconic physicist, but also the untold human story.

This is the story of Stephen Hawking's life told not by historians, biographers or commentators, but by the people who were there at the time; the people in the room with him. Scenes from critical and defining moments in his life are told by the people who were present as the events and discoveries unfolded, and who were directly impacted by his triumphs and tragedies.

Contributors include Stephen's children Robert, Lucy and Tim, and his first wife Jane, alongside a raft of renowned scientists who consider him an inspiration, a role-model, a peer, and a friend, for a fascinatingly well-rounded portrait of the scientist, the family man, and all the facets of Stephen's life.

The Beatles and India - Trailer - A fascinating, award-winning feature documentary from Ajoy Bose


When the world’s most famous band The Beatles made their seminal trip to India in 1968, not only did it inspire a new musical direction for the band, it paved the way for a brand new sound that still resonates across cultural and musical landscapes to this day.

Now a new, award-winning feature documentary The Beatles and India from Silva Screen Productions and Renoir Pictures explores the lasting legacy from their ground-breaking visit to Rishikesh. It sheds light on how India shaped the development of the greatest ever rock band and their pioneering role in bringing together two vastly different cultures.

This unique historical film chronicles the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that began more than half a century ago. The Beatles and India follows a rarely seen, fascinating time in John, Paul, George and Ringo’s career and brings it to life with archive footage, recordings and photographs, alongside eye-witness accounts,  expert comments and visually stunning location shots.

In 1968 the legendary band brought their Western celebrity circus to a remote Himalayan ashram in Rishikesh in search of spiritual enlightenment. What happened next had a profound effect on the whole band… and the whole world.

Inspired by Ajoy Bose’s book, Across The Universe - The Beatles In India,  British Indian music entrepreneur Reynold D’Silva has taken the amazing saga further by producing Bose’s directorial debut.  Bose and cultural researcher, co-director, Pete Compton,  have created an audio-visual presentation that stands apart from the many documentaries on the band,  delving deep into the most crucial period of their evolution from the world’s most famous pop stars into multi-faceted pioneering musical artists.

The documentary won Best Film Audience Choice and Best Music in Tongues On Fire, the 2021 UK Asian Film Festival, where it premiered earlier this year.

An accompanying album, Songs Inspired By The Film The Beatles And India performed by Indian artists and the score album will be released on Silva Screen Records on 29 October, along with a DVD and Blu-ray release of the film from Cherry Red.

The Beatles and India a fascinating, award-winning feature documentary from Ajoy Bose, which gets its UK digital release on 4 October courtesy of 101 Films and will also screen at select Everyman Cinemas on 31 August as part of their Everyman Music Film Festival.

New documentary explores the magazine that shaped British culture

How one magazine transformed British photography
 

Ship Of Life Films have announced the release of their new documentary, Picture Stories, about the life and legacy of Picture Post, the revolutionary magazine which shaped perceptions of British life during and after the Second World War.
 
Ahead of its UK theatrical release on the 24th September, the documentary will also have special screenings at the Royal Photographic Society in Bristol on 15th September, and the Photography Show (NEC Birmingham) on 18th September. Following the UK theatrical release, Picture Stories will be released on digital download on 30th September.
 
Britain's best-selling magazine during the Second World War, and hugely influential for years after, Picture Post revolutionised the picture magazine, showing Britain to the British in a fundamentally new way.
 
Using the freedom of new camera technology, Picture Post's photographers portrayed the lives of ordinary people, at home, on the street, unposed - in a way they had never been seen before.
 
Through its powerful, socially committed picture stories, Picture Post helped to transform post-war Britain, and change the face of British photography.

The story of this iconic magazine is told by its photographers, writers and editors. Leading contemporary photographers reflect on Picture Post's extraordinary images and influence.
 
Commenting on the release, film director Rob West stated; "Picture Post is arguably the most important magazine in British social history. It was born under the threat of War, and survived and flourished under the intense bombardment of the Blitz. Extraordinarily, during the height of World War II, Picture Post was looking ahead to post-War life and to the possibility of fundamental social reform.
 
Picture Post had a huge impact on national awareness of social conditions in Britain and of the need for a comprehensive welfare state and a national health service. It brought cutting-edge photography, and the picture story, to a mass audience. It changed people's understanding of their own country by showing, vividly, what British life was really like.
 
I wanted to bring the extraordinary story of Picture Post and its photographers to modern audiences. Many of things we take for granted in photography, and our understanding of photographs and picture layout, started with Picture Post. Many of our ideas about British society were forged by Picture Post and its unique group of creators."
 
UK screenings of Picture Stories will take place from 15th September and will be available on Digital Download from 30th September. More info can be found at picturestoriesfilm.com
