    In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old Canadian biologist, Anne Innis Dagg, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behaviour in the wild on that continent. In this remarkable film we learn about her pioneering research on giraffes as well as the appalling way she was treated in her struggle for recognition in the academic world.

    The Cannes premiere of Lars von Trier’s masterful provocation sparked both bilious outrage and begrudging admiration. In detailing the murderous exploits of unrepentant serial killer Jack a.k.a. Mr. Sophistication in graphic detail, the Peter Pan of enfants terribles also engages in some perverse but poignant self-reflection (if not outright character suicide).

    Widely regarded as a critical masterpiece, the South Korean entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards, Burning won the FIPRESCI Critics Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. A psychological thriller wrapped in layers of mystery the simmering story builds in intensity of a young writer and his crush on a woman who takes up with another man. It boasts an ending as haunting as an incandescent sunset descending into shadowy dusk.
