Watch this space for more additions as we confirm them
Knocking – 1st February
A twisty, claustrophobic and gut-wrenching thriller streaked with horror, from director and Cannes Palme D’Or winner Frida Kempff, Knocking features a fierce and soul-baring central performance from Cecilia Milocco. Molly has just experienced a traumatic incident and is unnerved by a haunting knocking sound from upstairs in her new apartment building. As the noises become more desperate and increasingly sound like cries for help, she confronts her neighbours, but it seems no one else can hear them. In an unsettling quest for truth, Molly soon realises that no one believes her, and begins to question if she even believes herself – a realisation that is perhaps even more chilling.
Rafiki – 3rd February
Romantic sparks fly between the daughters of two opposing politicians in Wanuri Kahiu’s neon-bright story of forbidden love in Kenya.
Herself – 7th February
Sandra (Clare Dunne) is a young Mum, struggling to get by, desperate to provide her two young daughters with a safe and happy home to grow up in. When it becomes clear that the local council won’t provide that home, she decides to take action: she’ll build it herself, from scratch. With no budget and a possessive ex-husband lurking, Sandra must use all her courage and ingenuity, along with a tight-knit community of friends, to build herself and her daughters the home they deserve.
