  The Image Book and On Body and Soul on Blu-ray [read more]
  For the art lovers
  The global curated streaming service and distributor MUBI are delighted to announce that two acclaimed MUBI Releases, Jean-Luc Godard's THE IMAGE BOOK and the 2017 Berlin Golden Bear Winner ON BODY AND SOUL will be now made available to own on Blu-ray from 23 November 2020.

THE IMAGE BOOK is a kaleidoscopic and dazzling film essay examining the role of cinema in world history in a characteristically bold and innovative way). The most recent film from legendary director Jean-Luc Godard garnered acclaim following its World Premiere at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where Godard was also awarded a Special Palme d'Or award for the auteur's unparalleled contribution to cinema.

Jean-Luc Godard is renowned for his relentlessly inventive approach to filmmaking. His films BREATHLESS, PIERROT LE FOU, WEEKEND, BAND OF OUTSIDERS and many others have secured his place in history as one of the founding fathers of modern cinema, influencing everyone from Quentin Tarantino to Wes Anderson.

ON BODY AND SOUL represents a celebrated comeback to feature filmmaking for director Ildikó Enyedi whose debut film MY TWENTIETH CENTURY won the Caméra d'Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival with 1999’s follow-up Simon the Magician also receiving critical praise. The film, which won the Golden Bear prize at the 67th Berlin Film Festival and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards, follows two introverted people, both workers in a meat-processing plant, one a world-weary financial director, the other an obsessive quality controller, who find out by chance that they share the same dream every night. They are puzzled, incredulous and frightened. As they begin to accept this strange coincidence, they try to recreate in broad daylight what happens in their shared subconscious.

Ildikó Enyedi is a Hungarian director and writer. She is known for her HBO Europe series Terápia which ran from 2012 - 2014. She won the Caméra d'Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival for her feature debut MY TWENTIETH CENTURY. In 1992 she was a member of the Jury at the 42nd Berlin International Film Festival and was also on the jury at the 2007 Moscow International Film Festival.

  Brothers [read more]
  Mental health in focus
  STUDIOCANAL, HKX and CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) are proud to announce that acclaimed film director Huse Monfaradi's short film BROTHERS - featuring rising stars Jay Lycurgo (I May Destroy You) and Michael Workeye (Sitting In Limbo), will be available to watch from Friday 6 November 2020, exclusively through www.brothersthefilm.com. The film will be followed with a pre-recorded Q&A with Monfaradi, Workeye and Lycurgo, hosted by renowned broadcaster Edith Bowman.

It's a sad paradox in that it is harder to know how to deal with the mental health issues of those closest to us; family, than someone perhaps one step away. BROTHERS is a story of friendship, betrayal and the fragility of mental health, inspired by the real life experiences of Michael Workeye and his relationship with his older brother and his mental health issues.

Monfaradi commented: “Hearing Michael's story and the struggles he has had with his older brother's mental health issues over the years was the inspiration for me to write Brothers. I felt compelled as a filmmaker to try and tell a version of this story in a dramatic, relatable and compassionate manner, so as to not only do Michael and his family some justice, but also shed light on the subject and hopefully open a discussion around it."

  Let's hope it's better than the tabloid
  Universal Pictures is proud to present Tom Hanks starring in News of the World on 1st January, 2021, a moving story written and directed by Paul Greengrass, and has today launched a new featurette with Tom Hanks taking audiences behind the scenes - click the link above to view it.

Hanks said: "Kidd goes through something that saves him as much as he saves Johanna. She gave him a true purpose. His real message is 'when you have love in your life, it will be alright'. That's what all great stories are; it's just pure love for another human being".

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.

In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel, System Crasher), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she's never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will.

Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.
