Young urchin Almitra becomes fascinated with the political prisoner, a poet named Mustafa, who has been kept in house arrest for nearly a decade, and for whom her mother Kamila cleans and cooks. Mustafa spins wonderful stories which make his confinement seem like privilege, at least to the mute Almitra. But when freedom seems closest she gains knowledge of just how precious, and fragile, it really is… A passion project from producer Salma Hayek, this is surely one of the most ambitious and visually stunning animated features targeted at an all-ages family audience, calling on the talents of some of the greatest animators working in film today.

Scorsese’s hallucinatory nightmare of New York at its seediest, sleaziest 70s nadir is a potent, even toxic work, but a cinematic classic all the way. In an iconic role, De Niro is Travis Bickle, a neo-noir Viet-vet trying to rise up above the scum lapping up on the streets by any means necessary.

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.” So begins Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece, based on the biography of real-life mobster Henry Hill and his brutal but seductive life of organized crime.  Starting at full throttle and speeding towards a life of flashy cars, gold watches, women, cash and crime, Goodfellas gives us the best performances of every actor in the cast with an unforgettable sound track. Introduced by Melanie Friesen. Guest presenter: saxophonist Cory Weeds.
