Official Secrets

A morality tale for the 21st Century. Loved it! A morality tale for the 21st century, Official Secrets tells the true story of British Intelligence whistle-blower Katharine Gun who, during the immediate run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, leaked a top secret NSA memo exposing a joint US-UK illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council. The memo proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war. At a personal and professional risk, journalist Martin Bright published the leaked document in The Observer newspaper in London, and the story made headlines around the world. Members of the Security Council were outraged and any chance of a UN resolution in favour of war collapsed. But within days, Bush declared he no longer needed UN backing and invaded anyway. As Iraq descended into chaos, Katharine was arrested and charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act. Martin faced potential charges too.

Parasite

Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki Taek, and his equally unambitious family occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. His family are the supportive wife, Chung Sook, his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki Jung, and his college-age son, Ki Woo. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition paves the way for an ingeniously insidious scheme, as Ki Woo summons up the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?

Pain & Glory

Romantic Salvador Mallo, a filmmaker in the twilight of his career, is plagued by health issues just as a film from early in his career is readied for re-release.  As his physical ailments begin to consume his vitality, he is incapacitated by an immense depression that debilitates his creativity. In this desperate state he reconnects to the earlier film’s leading man, Crespo, from whom he’s been estranged for 30 years.  Crespo, too, has seen better days and self-medicates between gigs.  Tapping into Crespo’s ‘vacation’ routes, pain takes a backseat allowing Salvo to revisit the temperate climes of his past – memories of his loving but emotionally frustrated mother, the purity of his first crush, his greatest muse and lover ‘lost’ to addiction…grasping for existential relief and closure, creative salvation emerges in the form of a shelved autobiographical script.
