Kuran and Operation Moffat with Q&A from the director Tom Allen (Kuran) and Claire Carter (Operation Moffat)
Two British adventurers travel and explore Iran’s longest river, the Karun. But they find that cultural differences run deeper than they’d realised and the once-calm waters of the Karun turn nasty…
Operation Moffat is a film that takes inspiration and wit from the colourful climbing life of Britain's first female mountain guide, Gwen Moffat. Grappling with her preference for mountains over people, adventure over security, wilderness over tick lists, writer Claire Carter and Jen Randall climb, run, scramble and swim their way through some of Gwen's most cherished British Landscapes.

Propaganda Film
Battleship Potemkin
(Sergei Eisenstein, 1926) 75mins
The words “propaganda” and “cinema” cannot be uttered in the same sentence without mentioning Eisenstein’s historic masterpiece, which influenced filmmakers for generations to come. The film, deemed too shocking in its day more for its violence than its communist heart, is based on the true story of a Russian naval mutiny that resulted in rioting and massacre.
