A crooner with a broken heart, Gaspard had sworn never to fall in love again. As for Lula, a pretty mermaid, she has only her singing to defend herself from men, making their hearts race until they explode. When the Seine floods and deposits Lula at the foot of the Flowerburger, the barge-cabaret where Gaspard sings, it is a mini-tsunami that will upset and change their lives. He, the man who has suffered from having loved too much, and she, the creature who has never known love, will get to know each other. And to sing with the same voice...

Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella. Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (“I Tonya”) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. It was produced by Andrew Gunn (“Freaky Friday”), Marc Platt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Kristin Burr (“Christopher Robin”), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar®- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “A Room with a View”) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.

From their home in remote Tjuntjuntjara, we follow Minning and his band’s first ever tour as they rock their way across the Western Desert with songs of hunter-gatherer life. Their elders survived the British atomic testing (at the infamous Maralinga site) and the band’s profound connection to culture spans back 2,000 generations. With customary Spinifex reciprocity, Minning shares the journey with East-Coast friends, a band named The Re-mains , providing a rare glimpse into his country, his culture, his music and his extraordinary everyday life.

On January 26 the 1972 Prime Minister McMahon declared that under his government land rights would never be granted. In the dead of night four young men stuck a beach umbrella into the ground outside parliament house and sat under it. They called it the Aboriginal tent embassy. That single action set off a chain of events which reverberated around the world. It marked the beginning of a new and more radical chapter in the struggle for justice as a young angry generation of black Australians established they weren’t going to wait any longer. Watched but ASIO harassed by the police ,the embassy was the beginning of a movement that lead to the establishment of the Aboriginal legal and medical services, the national black theatre and tide of support from across Australia which lead to the grant of native title land rights. NINGLA-ANA is the only film shot from within the embassy and close to the people who created it. This hard hitting film tells the story from inside the fight for justice. Which side are you on? The most symbolic action ever taken by Aboriginal people in their struggle for justice.

Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge - Kempton had spun a web of lies. The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage - how and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale.

A powerful Australian drama of family, secrets, and threatened stability, The Land marks a stunning directorial debut for acclaimed photographer Ingvar Kenne. Directed by acclaimed Swedish-born photographer Ingvar Kenne (who has exhibited internationally for thirty years, with a host of high profile shows and five books to his credit), The Land is a stunning combination of brave, artful, bravura filmmaking and richly layered, deeply personal storytelling. Set against the harshly gorgeous backdrop of rural Australia, The Land follows Jeremy (veteran Australian character actor Steve Rodgers) and Neets (the gifted Anna Lise Phillips from TV’s Harrow, Devil’s Playground and The Son), a close couple who appear to be living the dream they have successful careers, a three-bedroom house, three adorable children, and are fourteen years into a seemingly happy marriage. But then Simon (Cameron Stewart) calls. He’s coming home, bringing with him a secret that Jeremy thought they long put to rest.
