    The director and often star of 110 films over 30 years, Salim Shaheen is the biggest fish in the tiny pond of Afghan film: as he puts it, "Nothingwood". Exuberant and tireless, with a lifelong love of Indian cinema (and sweet tea), we follow him to screenings and a mountain shoot in Bamyan. This is a world where army units provide location security - and are then roped in as extras - actresses are chaperoned by their fathers, and divine providence trumps health and safety. This fascinating and hilarious doc celebrates the defiance of a shoestring film industry and their audience against the shadow of the Civil War and the ongoing Taliban threat. Full details.

    Bill Morrison is a master artist when it comes to the reconstruction of archive footage. He reveals a magical dance of the dead in layers of decaying nitrate stock discovered in Dawson City (Canada), 50 years after 533 reels had been buried. The North American Gold Rush of 1896 established Dawson City on the Klondike and Yukon Rivers, displacing a First Nation hunting ground. In 1903, the movies arrived as the town developed out of its whoring, drinking and gambling origins. It was so remote, the studios wouldn't pay for the film prints to be returned so they lay buried in the permafrost until rediscovered in 1978. The soundtrack by composer and Sigur Rós oft-collaborator Alex Somers (Captain Fantastic, Riceboy Sleeps) ensures the material is astounding! Encompassing material from Pathe and European news, it reanimates lost silent movies stars, the perils of prospecting, a major baseball scandal and the expulsion of socialists after the Russian Revolution.

    Living in an isolated farmhouse in Upper State New York, a family must navigate a post-apocalyptic world without making a single sound. Either that, or risk being shredded alive. In the shadows lurk spider-like creatures that hunt by sound rather than sight, and which are lying in wait for their next victim. For devoted mother and father (John Krasinski and Emily Blunt), son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and partially deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), life turns into a deadly game of hide-and-seek. The family must walk barefoot, communicate in sign language – which they understand because of Regan’s hearing difficulties – and stifle their every breath to avoid making a noise. It’s a game that becomes even more dangerous when Blunt discovers that she’s pregnant. Staying alive means forever staying one-tiptoed-step ahead. Full details.

    If you think that modern comedy is still lacking in gender equality, then this tough, streetwise British film shows that it's also made giant strides since the in-your-face chauvinism of working men's clubs in decades past. And yet, ill-treatment by men is something our eponymous heroine is grimly used to, from childhood beatings to an abusive husband.
    More a film about the power of laughter and how to transform pain into humour than a straight-up comedy, "Funny Cow" is a fitting showcase for Maxine Peake. So often dazzling on stage and television, she's hilarious and heart-breaking here. There's fine support too from cast-against-type Paddy Considine as her middle-class paramour and a swooning, melancholic soundtrack by Richard Hawley. Full details.

    If you think that modern comedy is still lacking in gender equality, then this tough, streetwise British film shows that it's also made giant strides since the in-your-face chauvinism of working men's clubs in decades past. And yet, ill-treatment by men is something our eponymous heroine is grimly used to, from childhood beatings to an abusive husband.
    More a film about the power of laughter and how to transform pain into humour than a straight-up comedy, "Funny Cow" is a fitting showcase for Maxine Peake. So often dazzling on stage and television, she's hilarious and heart-breaking here. There's fine support too from cast-against-type Paddy Considine as her middle-class paramour and a swooning, melancholic soundtrack by Richard Hawley. BabesInArms Screening. Full details.
