Inspired by Kusturica´s short film from the omnibus film Words with Gods, On the Milky Road unfolds as a three part narrative. The film follows three challenging periods of a man's life, both for him and his native land: a difficult period while at war, a blossoming time when he falls in love for a woman who is willing to sacrifice everything to save him and during his last days as a reclusive monk who looks back upon his turbulent life. Shot on location in the Balkans, the film will be the return to feature filmmaking of twice Palme D'Or winner Kusturica, after seven years. With Monica Belucci as the love interest of our hero and Emir Kusturica himself in the main role.

Uncle Howard is an intertwining tale of past and present. New York filmmaker Howard Brookner died of AIDS in 1989, while making his breakthrough Hollywood movie. His body of work, which captured the late 70s and early 80s cultural revolution, was buried in William S. Burroughs’ bunker for 30 years. Now in a personal journey, his nephew Aaron unearths Howard's filmmaking legacy and the memory of everything he was.

Burroughs: The Movie is the first and only feature length documentary to be made with and about Burroughs. It explores the life and times of controversial Naked Lunch author William S. Burroughs, with an intimacy never before seen and never repeated.
The film charts the development of Burroughs’ unique literary style and his wildly unconventional life, including his travels from the American Midwest to North Africa and several personal tragedies.
Directed by the late Howard Brookner, filming began in 1978 as Brookner's senior thesis at NYU film school before expanding into a feature completed 5 years later in 1983. Sound was recorded by Jim Jarmusch and the film was shot by Tom DiCillo, fellow NYU classmates and both very close friends of Brookner's.

London, 1962. Two teenage girls – Ginger and Rosa - are inseparable; they play truant together, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers’ frustrated domesticity.
But, as the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered - by the clash of desire and the determination to survive.
The film premiered at Toronto Film Festival and was also shown at the 56th BFI London Film Festival.

If only the Chinese hadn’t started producing mozzarella in Campania, the home of Italian Mozzarella, then Don Ciccio – the King of Mozzarella, Mr. Buffalo Cheese himself – would have continued producing and selling, selling and producing, and, of course, paying kickbacks to the local camorra. But the Chinese have flooded supermarkets and restaurants with their first-rate and, more importantly, half-price cheese. Bankruptcy looms, as well as the camorra. Ciccio needs money, and getting it triggers a series of events that affect everyone around him.
Director Edoardo De Angelis’ first full-length feature film takes a light-hearted look at Caserta, in Italy’s Campania region, telling a story about music and women, mozzarella and camorra. It explores a world full of irony, blending elements from action movies and Italian comedies while literately resonating with influences from Tarantino and Almodóvar, starring among others Aida Turturro (The Sopranos).
