27 Gone Too Soon

   2018    History
Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died at the age of 27 between 1969 and 1971. At the time, the coincidence gave rise to some comment, but it was not until the death of Kurt Cobain, about two and a half decades later, that the idea of a '27 Club' began to catch on in public perception, reignited with the death of Amy Winehouse in 2011.
Through interviews with people who knew them, such as music stars, critics, medical experts and unseen footage, the lives, music, and artistry of those who died at 27 are investigated with a bid to find answers.

A Head Full of Dreams

   2018    Art
The film offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band's spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. At the heart of the story is the band's unshakeable brotherhood which has endured through many highs and lows.
Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, 'A Head Full of Dreams' sees the band reflect upon their two decades together. It was filmed during Coldplay's record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
The film is directed by Mat Whitecross - director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary - who met the four friends at college in London, before they'd even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.

A Man Named Scott

   2021    History
The documentary follows the music career of Kid Cudi from the release of 'Day n Nite' in 2008 through present day recordings. Friends and producers illustrate his story in conjunction with concert footage and never before seen behind-the-scenes.
The film is a deep dive into the life and career of the hip-hop artist. Candid interviews with the rapper's inner circle and never-before-seen concert material come together to tell the story of a talented yet troubled youth striving to build a career in music until his debut 2008 single garnered attention across social media platforms, launching Kid Cudi on his meteoric rise to the spotlight.

a-ha: The Movie

   2021    Art
(click CC for subtitles) 'a-ha' is Norway's only international pop band and their hit 'Take On Me' is still one of the most-played songs of the last millennium. The film follows the band over a period of four years, telling the full story of how three young men followed their impossible dream of becoming Norwegian pop stars. When 'Take On Me' reached number 1 on Billboard in the US in 1985, the dream came true. Or did it?
Almost 35 years after their breakthrough, a-ha still creates magic on stage with their melancholic and timeless music. They tour the world but drive in separate cars and stay in separate hotel rooms. They only meet on stage, doing the one thing they love. The film closely portrays the challenging creative and personal dynamics of a group of three strong individuals who have grown up together, but in different directions. What does success do to friendship? Why are they not capable of creating new music together anymore? This is a story of great music, big ambitions, broken friendship--and maybe forgiveness.
