WOLFMAN’S GOT NARDS
2018, 91 min, USA, Dir: Andre Gower

Though THE MONSTER SQUAD quickly vanished from theaters after its 1987 release, over the last three decades word-of-mouth has turned it into a cultural phenomenon. This new documentary takes an in-depth look into the film’s conception, response, cult status and revival. Through interviews with the cast, crew, screenwriters, directors, academics and original reviewers - as well as through never-before-seen footage - it turns the lens on an audience of self-proclaimed misfits who have kept THE MONSTER SQUAD alive for more than 30 years.


LIFE AFTER FLASH
2017, AMP International, 94 min, UK, Dir: Lisa Downs

This feature documentary explores the life of Sam J Jones since his iconic performance in the title role of the 1980 classic FLASH GORDON, and the aftermath of the young star’s clash with one of Hollywood's biggest legends, producer Dino De Laurentiis. LIFE AFTER FLASH is an inspiring and moving film that celebrates what makes Mike Hodges’ enduring sci-fi classic so iconic with audiences to this day and looks at the real man behind the heroic mask: his successes, his battles and his ultimate struggle for redemption.


NAILA AND THE UPRISING
2017, Just Vision Films, 76 min, USA/Palestine, Dir: Julia Bacha

When a nationwide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family and freedom. Undaunted, she embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time. NAILA AND THE UPRISING chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women at the frontlines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history: the First Intifada in the late 1980s. Using evocative animation, intimate interviews and exclusive archival footage, this empowering documentary spotlights the courageous women activists who have remained on the margins of history - until now.
