Film: This Must Be The Place

This Must Be The Place is the tale of the quest of an ageing, Nazi-hunting goth-rocker played by Sean Penn

Beauty is the uncomfortable story of obsession and repression with a wider narrative dealing with the way the older conservative generation fail to gel with post-apartheid contemporary South Africa

Film: Into the Abyss: A Tale of Life, A Tale of Death
