For the first time on UK screens, the film American authorities didn’t want anyone to see. In the first sixty years of the 20th century, the USA murder rate was constant. But after the 1963 death of President Kennedy it steadily increased every year and this brutal study tells you why. Taking the viewer on a bloody trail from that watershed assassination, the shootings of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King through the Vietnam War, Charles Manson and the demise of John Lennon, this collage of violently explicit news footage and keynote interviews will shock you to the core.

SATURDAY 27TH AUGUST 2016

DISCOVERY SCREEN 3 – 3.40PM
Director: Fabien Delage. With: Alexandre Aja, Christophe Gans, Pauline Méliès, Dave Alexander, Jean-Jacques Bernard. France 2016. 60 mins.
Whenever the mysterious silent movie LA RAGE DU DEMON is shown, violence, crowd hysteria and death follows. Was this diabolical journey through hell actually directed by the famous French special effects pioneer Georges Méliès? Or could it have been created by his key technical illusionist and possible murderer Victor Sicarius, well known for his occult dabbling? Through conversations with journalists, filmmakers, historians, experts and psychologists, this eye-opening documentary pulls back the veil on the most cursed and disturbing lost movie ever-made to discover the truth behind the controversy that has been shaking the film world for over a century.

SATURDAY 27TH – UK PREMIERE – BEYOND THE WALLS
DISCOVERY SCREEN 3 – 5.45PM

Her ever-shifting house is also manipulating other occupants, interweaving space-time continuums that lead Lisa on an initiatory journey into the deepest recesses of her psyche. This mesmerising French thriller mini-series takes everything you know about the haunted house genre and turns it on its head: from grand set pieces to cults which only exist in the imagination, ‘Beyond The Walls’ is a frightening, one-of-a-kind experience that will linger long in your memory after it’s finished.
