Glasgow Film Festival A Ciambra

Director Jonas Carpignano follows up his debut feature Mediterranea with a raw, plaintive, coming of age drama, drawn from true stories of life among Italy’s Romani community. Pio (Pio Amato) is a tough teenager who thinks he is more than ready to enter the family business of theft, drug dealing and crime. As he is forced to assume the responsibility of being head of the family, he veers into increasingly dangerous territory. Who can he trust? Who should he betray? Every choice has a consequence, as the boy must decide where his future lies.

Glasgow Film Festival A Letter to the President (Namai ba rahis gomhor)

Afghanistan’s official entry to the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, Roya Sadat’s scathing and urgent film is a dissection of her country’s challenging political climate. Soraya (Leena Alam) is a strong-willed and passionate head of the Kabul Crime Division but her passion and strength places her at odds with her conservative husband and gangster father-in-law. Her involvement in a local dispute involving a young bride pivots her directly into the crossfire of the village male elders, sparking the embers that lead to her shocking downfall. A feminist elegy of a country at odds with itself, this is powerful cinema at its most potent.

Glasgow Film Festival Anyab

Hot off the heels of Fantastic Fest’s midnight screening, Anyab is a true embodiment of a lost classic. An Egyptian remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show from 1981, Mohammed Shebl completely reinvents Richard O’Brien’s classic, refocussing his efforts on a horde of flamboyant vampires who enjoy nothing more than a wee sing-a-long. Cue grandiose disco-inspired Egyptian dance numbers, incredible set pieces and a cast who are clearly having an absolute riot: Anyab is the perfect late night B-movie. Those of a nervous disposition may find some scenes upsetting… others may find some scenes downright hilarious!

Glasgow Film Festival Dayveon

Dayveon (Devin Blackmon) is just 13-years-old and coming to terms with the death of his older brother during a long hot summer in Arkansas. No longer a boy but not quite a man, Dayveon is drawn to a local gang and their promise of entry into an adult world. The reality is more mundane as the gang members smoke weed, hang out and wish for a better life than the options on offer to them as young black men in the desolate South. A melancholy coming of age drama, marking a striking directorial debut for Amman Abbasi, with the backing of executive producer David Gordon Green.

Glasgow Film Festival Don’t Talk to Irene

Dubbed ‘Dirty Dancing meets Cocoon for girls with low self-esteem’, Don’t Talk to Irene is a sassy crowdpleaser in which you will cheer the underdog every step of the way. All 15-year-old Irene (Michelle McLeod) wants in the world is to join the cheerleading squad and be Geena Davis, who provides encouragement from a poster on her bedroom wall. When Irene finds herself suspended and having to do a stint of community service at a retirement home she is inspired to recruit an unlikely dance team bringing the whole community together. A witty heartwarming gem with lots of laughs.

Glasgow Film Festival DRIB

Fearlessly savaging high-end marketing industries and society’s nihilistic relationship with advertising, Kristoffer Borgli’s incredible meta-documentary recreates performance artist and comedian Amir Asgharnejad’s disastrous journey into the capitalist industry. After gaining notoriety in a series of YouTube videos in which he intentionally gets beaten up, Amir is invited by an international energy drinks brand to be the face of a violent new campaign. The film’s recreation of Amir’s experience is a hazy and hypnotic journey that doesn’t go to plan, leaving you questioning what is fact and what is fiction. Featuring a pulsating score from PC Music’s Felicita, DRIB is a unique film, impossible to define.

Glasgow Film Festival Junk Head

Hundreds of years in the future, life on Earth has become a withered mess. Human reproduction has been abandoned. Armies of clones, developed to help aid the dwindling workforce, have revolted and carved out their own world - underground. Once peaceful beings, the clones have evolved into unrecognisable beasts, with many vying for global destruction. One human’s mission to explore this world evolves into a journey of discovery and a fight for survival. Four years in the making, Takahide Hori’s much-anticipated dystopian masterpiece questions our perceptions of society.

Glasgow Film Festival Life and nothing more (La vida y nada mas)

Taking inspiration from the rich humanity of Italian neorealism and the rigour of Robert Bresson, Antonio Méndez Esparza has created a profoundly moving portrait of a black working class family struggling to stay afloat in a world that seems stacked against them. The initial focus is on Regina (Regina Williams) as she works hard to support her family and grows increasingly concerned over the future of her 14-year-old son Andrew (Andrew Bleechington), who is in trouble for breaking into cars. Heartfelt and heartbreaking, with terrific performances from the cast of non-professional actors.

Glasgow Film Festival More (Daha)

Can you avoid becoming a monster when you are raised by one? That is the question posed by More, the gripping debut feature from Onur Saylak, an adaptation of Hakan Günday’s award-winning novel. Gaza, a sharp 14-year-old boy, unwillingly partakes in his father’s refugee smuggling business, all the while dreaming of making his life elsewhere. As human suffering and immorality surround him, his struggle for innocence and liberation are frequently put to the test. A timely story of the unfortunate ones trapped inside a world of evil, with a powerhouse performance from Ahmat Mümtaz Taylan.

Glasgow Film Festival NFTS Scotland Presents: From Script to Screen - The 1st AD’s View

No matter the scale of the production, from a low-budget horror set in one location to an epic period drama with a cast and crew of hundreds, every film needs a strong first assistant director to provide leadership, problem-solve and create the best conditions for everyone on set to do their jobs. We are delighted to host Scottish-based First Assistant Director, Nick Heckstall-Smith (Ex Machina, Under the Skin, Skyfall) to explore the process of being an assistant director, looking at areas such breaking down a script, scheduling, working with the director and running a busy film set.
