Westwood: Pink, Icon, Activitst 1h 23min / UK / 2018 / Director: Lorna Tucker Dame Vivienne Westwood: punk, icon, provocateur, and one of the most influential originators in recent history.

The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be co-opted.
Living the Game 1h 28min / Taiwan-Japan / 2017 / Director: Takao Goutsu A documentary about a variety of professional Esports personalities following them throughout the course of about a year.

We Are X 1h 35min / UK – Japan – USA / 2016 / Director: Stephen Kijak Awards: – Editing Award : World Cinema – Documentary (Sundance Film Festival 2016) – Audience Award – Excellence in Title Design, (SXSW Film Festival 2016) From the production team behind the Oscar winning Searching for Sugar Man comes We Are X, a transcendent rock & roll story about X Japan, the world’s biggest and most successful band. Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer Yoshiki, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined––captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor––and pioneered a spectacledriven style of visual rock, creating a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon. Chronicling the band’s exhilarating, tumultuous and unimaginable history over the past three decades––persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache––the film culminates with preparations for their breathtaking reunion concert at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), We Are X is an astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted––but truly unstoppable––virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world’s most devoted fans.
