This first showcase for exciting contemporary British filmmaking contains Brilliantlove (Horner, 2010), No Greater Love (Whyte, 2009), Skeletons (Whitfield, 2010) and 1234 (Borg, 2008),
Brilliantlove: A headily sexual, erotic British love story that sees a couple enjoy a long, hot, summer romance. He's a photographer called Manchester, she's a shy taxidermist called Noon. Together they create an idyll of uninhibited lovemaking and unfettered creative expression in which Manchester captures wonderfully charged images with a cheap, instamatic cameras. Then Manchester gets discovered by a wealthy man who launches his photography on the art world - which suddenly wants to get every bit as intimate with him as Noon has been. Commerce, pretension, publicity - can either their love or his creativity survive?
No Greater Love: No Greater Love is a beautiful documentary portrait of daily life at a central London convent. The Monastery of the Most Holy Trinity in Notting Hill Gate is home to a cloistered order of Carmelite nuns whose lives are dedicated to prayer and contemplation. Free from accompanying music or narration, Whyte's film offers a simple fly-on-the-wall depiction of the nuns as they go about their quiet, ordered lives in the heart of a pulsing modern city. This is sure to be of interest to anyone who enjoyed Philip Gröning's film Into Great Silence.
Skeletons: Surreal British black comedy, Skeletons sees Davis (Ed Gaughan) and Bennett (Andrew Buckley) play a mismatched pair of travelling exorcists who spend their working day performing the unusual business of literally clearing skeletons out of people's closets. Together they travel across Britain, performing 'the Procedure' and exposing hordes of embarrassing secrets and lies as they go. Their partnership starts to unravel when Bennett, a stickler for the rules, discovers that Davis has been using the procedure illegitimately to reconnect with comforting moments from his past. Jason Isaacs co-stars as their enigmatic boss, the Colonel.
1234: British comedy drama about the trials and tribulations of setting up a band. Along with his drummer friend Neil (Matthew Baynton), wannabe rock star Stevie (Ian Bonar) works in a call centre and dreams of making it big in the indie music scene. The future looks a whole lot brighter when Stevie and Neil team up with experienced guitarist Billy (Kieran Bew) and scatty art student bass player Emily (Lyndsey Marshal). With a demo to tout, they set off to beat the well-trodden path of record companies and gig venues in hopes of conquering the British indie music scene. In addition to the assembling the requisite fantastic soundtrack, Giles brought together a talented cast of up-and-coming young British actors.
