    Radio Dreams (Unclassified 18+)
    A chaotic day in the life of a Farsi-language San Francisco radio station waiting on a visit from Metallica who are scheduled to stop by the studio to jam with Kabul Dreams, a rock band from Afghanistan.

    Ella (Unclassified 15+)
    The personal journey of Ella Havelka, a descendant of the Wiradjuri people, who, in 2013, made history by becoming the Australian Ballet's first Indigenous dancer.

    No Home Movie (Unclassified 15+)
    Chantal Akerman’s last film, No Home Movie, is not only a fitting coda to her career but also her most intimate and personal work: a record of her relationship with her mother over the course of the latter's last year of life.

    I, Olga Hepnarova (Unclassified 18+)
    Olga Hepnarova – lesbian, loner, mass murderer – was the last woman executed in the former Czechoslovakia. In 1973, at the age of just 22, Hepnarova used a truck to run down eight people on a Prague sidewalk. It was a crime of sudden and clinical ferocity, whose fallout and subsequent trial shocked a nation.
