My Sweet Pepper Land (France, Germany, Iraq 2013)

After the fall of Saddam Hussein, Baran, a Kurdish independence war hero, resolves to accept a position in a godforsaken village on the border of Iran and Turkey, an illegal-trafficking Mecca. There he meets Govend, a beautiful young woman who has come to work as the teacher in the newly-opened school, despite her twelve brothers' hostility to the idea.

What Richard Did (Ireland 2012)

The world is bright and everything seems possible for Richard Karlsen, a golden-boy athlete and undisputed alpha-male of his privileged set of South Dublin. Until one summer night, when Richard does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him. What Richard Did is a quietly devastating study of a boy confronting the gap between who he thought he was and who he proves to be.

Saturday 7 December, 6.30pm at City Stars Cinema, Omar Ibn El-Khattab Street, Nasr City

Layaly Bala Nom (Sleepless Nights) (Lebanon, UAE, Qatar, Palestine, France 2012)

Through the stories of Assad Shaftari, a former high-ranking leader in a Christian militia who was responsible for many killings during the Lebanese civil war, and Maryam Saiidi, the mother of a young kidnapped fighter, the film looks closely at war wounds and asks if redemption and forgiveness are possible.

Saturday 7 December, 3.30pm at Plaza Cinema, Americana Plaza Mall, Sheikh Zayed (followed by talk with director).
