THE HUNT (2020)
2020, Universal, 89 min, USA, Dir: Craig Zobel

Jason Blum (THE INVISIBLE MAN, GET OUT, HALLOWEEN), and Damon Lindelof, (WATCHMEN, LOST) deliver a timely and provocative satirical thriller that has already ignited a national conversation and sparked moral outrage. Now, it’s time to decide for yourself. Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they’ve been chosen … for a very specific purpose … The Hunt. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.


WESTWORLD
1973, Warner Bros. , 1973 min, Dir: Michael Crichton

Richard Benjamin and James Brolin decide to take a holiday in a high-tech amusement park, Westworld. Here they get to play cowboys - saloon brawls, saloon girls and quick draws against the town’s gunslinger (Yul Brynner) - with lifelike robots. All is well for the first few days but when the park’s central computer malfunctions, the built-in safety features are turned off and the robots begin to attack the guests.


THIS IS NOT A MOVIE
2019, 106 min, Canada/Germany, Dir: Yung Chang

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Yung Chang (UP THE YANGTZE) follows veteran British journalist Robert Fisk’s storied and often dangerous career, from his early coverage of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland to ongoing Middle East stories including Israeli-Palestinian conflicts and recent events in Syria. Despite his decades covering disillusioning world events up close, Fisk remains passionate and committed to journalism, and is living proof that knowledge and awareness still survive in an occasionally biased media environment. Nominated for Best Canadian Feature at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
