Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (R16)
As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (M)
Director Wes Ball breathes new life into the global, epic franchise set several generations in the future following Caesar's reign, in which apes are the dominant species living harmoniously and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows. As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike. "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes" is directed by Wes Ball (the "Maze Runner" trilogy) and stars Owen Teague ("IT"), Freya Allan ("The Witcher"), Kevin Durand ("Locke & Key"), Peter Macon ("Shameless"), and William H. Macy ("Fargo"). The screenplay is by Josh Friedman ("War of the Worlds") and Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver ("Avatar: The Way of Water") and Patrick Aison ("Prey"), based on characters created by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, and the producers are Wes Ball, Joe Hartwick, Jr. ("The Maze Runner"), Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Jason Reed ("Mulan"), with Peter Chernin (the "Planet of the Apes" trilogy) and Jenno Topping ("Ford v. Ferrari") serving as executive producers.
RADFF24: New England Modernism (E)
Between the 1930s and 1970s, American Modernism established an exciting and provocative footing in New England. By the 1940s the work of American master Frank Lloyd Wright and European newcomers such as Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius influenced generations of young architects and inspired a surprisingly large catalogue of important buildings throughout the region. Architects Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, John Johansen, Philip Johnson, Eliot Noyes and many others led the charge. Dive deeply into this rich pool of talent whose buildings still hold international influence, despite the constant threat of redevelopment. These works tell the story of New England Modernism, a story rich with beauty, imagination, creativity and industriousness.
RADFF24: Radical Landscapes (E)
In the 1960s, Fabrizio Fiumi founded 9999, a design group whose activities centred on architectural experiments and utopian ideas. Following the death of her father, filmmaker Elettra Fiumi draws from his vast film archive and paints a picture of a fascinating, optimistic, critical and in all respects, exemplary era.
RADFF24: Alfabeto Mangiarotti (E)
Delve into the multi-faceted career of Angelo Mangiarotti, a prominent Italian designer, architect and sculptor, who defied the conventional boundaries between disciplines. As a pioneer in post-war Italy, the film explores his innovative approach, deep understanding of materials and cross-disciplinary work.
RADFF24: Life, Assembled (E)
Fifty years after the realisation of their respective utopias, four now-elderly Belgian architects take director, Elodie Degavre, on a journey to discover extraordinary housing. A joyful exploration through time, from which emerges a crucial question: how will we live tomorrow?
