Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake comes to cinemas with a fresh look for the 21st century and is ‘as bold and beautiful as ever’ (★★★★★ Telegraph.) This thrilling, audacious and witty production is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Filmed live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London, this ‘spellbinding’ (★★★★★ Independent) re-imagining of the classic New Adventures production stars Will Bozier as The Swan/The Stranger; Liam Mower as The Prince, and Nicole Kabera as The Queen.

Only two men stayed: Ivo and Margus. But Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crops of tangerines.
In a bloody conflict in the miniature village, wounded men are left behind, and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. How do they all manage to handle it?

Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
