Cunningham is an inventive and energetic documentary about the avant-garde choreographer Merce Cunningham and his journey from struggling dancer in New York to his emergence as one of the world’s most visionary artists of the 20th Century, who collaborated with his partner John Cage as well as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
"Merce Cunningham changed the face of contemporary dance with bold new ways to move the human body in the latter half of the 20th century in New York. His work and influence are brought to life with groundbreaking visual technology in a documentary that challenges how exactly cinema can communicate movement" Empire

The Perfect Candidate
A young doctor, Maryam’s only desire is for the dirt road outside the local hospital to be surfaced, but no one takes her seriously. So despite the fact that she isn’t supposed to run for office, or show her face in campaign videos, or directly address male voters in conservative Saudi Arabia – she decides to run for a seat on the municipal council, launching a campaign that begins as a novelty act, but quickly grows into something more. This ambitious professional woman’s modest political mission becomes part of a bigger story and her hopes for a better world in this powerful film by the director of beloved Wadjda (the first feature made by a woman director in the country).
Essential Film of 2020 ★★★★ “Fiery and Headstrong“ The Guardian
