Štefan Uher's exquisite, groundbreaking film is consistently ranked amongst the greatest films in the history of Czechoslovak cinema. It is also recognised as the film that kick-started the 'Czechoslovak New Wave', one of cinema's great creative movements. Bringing to the screen a number of then-unacceptable social and political themes (given the strict censorship of the time), combined with surprising sexual frankness and an exhilaratingly freewheeling approach, The Sun in a Net presented an authenticity in its depiction of ordinary lives that immediately struck a strong chord with audiences, consequently leading to the film being judged unsuitable by the authorities. This landmark film now finally gets its British premiere fifty years on from its first screening. This new trailer has been specially created for our release by editor Anthony Barlos.
Lulu is a single mom who'd gone back to school and didn't have the time or interest in working full-time to pay for rent. So when she had to move out of her more conventional home, she decided to move herself and her daughter into a shipping container. With no building experience, Lulu spent just one month cutting windows and a door and installing insulation and a basic kitchen (complete with propane-powered campstove and on-demand water heater). Then she and her daughter moved into the 8 by 20 foot square foot home, fitting a bed, couch, bookshelf and kitchen cabinets into the 160 square foot box. When Lulu decided they needed a bit more space, she went from shipping to trucking waste and began to build their bedroom on a used flatbed trailer. "It's really mostly built like a shed. It's a nice looking shed, but it's really an 8 by 16 shed with windows in it." Using only recycled building materials- including used floorboards, windows, cabinets, doors, bathtub, toilet and sinks- she built the entire thing for about $4,000 (trailer included).

Here's an amazing scene from an ultra-rare, kitschy, trippy, Soviet-style SF film, Ikarie XB 1 (aka Ikaria XB1, Icarus XB1 and Voyage to the End of the Universe). Czechoslovakia's first science fiction film, this remarkable 1963 movie tells the story of Starship Ikaria XB 1's 2163 trek to Alpha Centari. ("Voyage" was the savagely cut, English dubbed version released by American International Pictures.) The film is generally apolitical, except for this remarkable scene, in which the explorers enter a derelict 20th Century space craft, littered with evidence of capitalist immorality. The visuals are striking. Corpses of tuxedo-clad, gambling westerners, their bodies preserved by open vacuum. The crew killed by their own chemical hand-weapons as they fought over dwindling oxygen. The ship laden with nuclear weapons -- still active after centuries. Ikarie XB 1 is an ambitious, thoughtful, intelligent film that was decades ahead of its time. It's an ultra-rare "must-see" for any serious SF fan, with high-concept elements galore: a trip to proxima centaura; time dilation; future foods, fashion, music and dance; first-contact protocols; increased longevity; artificial intelligence; bulky socialist robots. It's said the screenplay was inspired by the work of Stanislaw Lem, including "The Magellanic Cloud" from 1955. Available as a PAL Region 2 DVD from European retailers, and in the US from xploitedcinema.com. Please buy the DVD to help encourage future DVD releases of other Eastern-bloc SF gems.

Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Johnny Simmons, Aaron Johnson, Michael Shannon Director: Shana Feste Written By: Shana Feste Genre: Drama MPAA: Rated R U.S. Release Date: April 2, 2010 Synopsis For the past few years, 17-year-old Bennett and Rose always look forward to the moment when their eyes meet as they pass each other going home from school. Still, they never exchange a single word until the very last day of school when Bennett musters up the courage to confess his love to Rose. At last they kiss, and end up having the most memorable night of their lives. Seconds after Bennett says goodbye to Rose, a tragic car accident takes his life. His mother Grace (Academy Award® winner Sarandon) has a hard time coping with the devastating news and becomes obsessed with the final moments of Bennetts life. Her husband Allen (Brosnan) tries to make up for his past mistakes while fighting to keep his family together, and the youngest son Ryan feels neglected and overcome by his own problems. And then one night, Rose shows up at their doorstep announcing she is pregnant with Bennetts baby and has been disowned by her own family. While things will never be the same for each of them, together they come to recognize that the life of a family will carry on. http://www.thegreatestthemovie.com http://pbfiles2.cixx6.com/greatest/index.html http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Greatest/479564265598 ================================= Sundance Festival Guide: Crying your eyes out at the movies used to be commonplace. But the difficulty of affecting a contemporary audience emotionally demonstrates how much respect a work like The Greatest engenders: it is an enormously moving, intelligent exploration of pain and grieving, a film that will touch you and stay with you.The death of their teenage son, Bennett, in a car crash is almost too much for the Brewer family to bear, not just because his was a life of such promise but also because the impact of his death unleashes the turmoil that was just beneath the surface of their lives. His mother becomes obsessed and cant let go; his father, in turn, cant face it at all; and his brothers secondary status is magnified and entrenched. And when Bennetts girlfriend appears, the family must come to grips with circumstances that complicate their loss even further. An ensemble film that is the debut of Shana Feste, a particularly talented young filmmaker, this sensitive and heartbreaking feature showcases Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan at their best and launches a career for young actress Carey Mulligan that is certain to be impressive. This is one of the standout works of this Festival and is as fine a debut as we can present. -- Geoff Gilmore, Festival Director ======================================= Song in trailer: Where The Road Meets the Sun By Matthew Perryman Jones and Katie Herzig Lyrics: Angel wings spread over water-worn wishes Guarding the dreams and the things left unsaid Here we are wandering, aimlessly roaming Lovers who linger and never forget And when it's done we will walk where the road meets the sun Waiting for you by the Santa Maria How long must I stay with these letters from you I don't know whether we'll end up together But I'll always know that our love is true And when it's done we will walk where the road meets the sun Don't Disappear (Darlin' I want you) Don't leave me here (And when the day comes) I'll meet you here 'Cause I know that wishes come true I'm finding my way back to you Angel wings spread over water-worn wishes Guarding the dreams and the things left unsaid And when it's done we will walk where the road meets the sun And when it's done we will walk where the road meets the sun

Angela Bennett is a computer expert. This young and beautiful analyst is never far from a computer and modem. The only activity she has outside of computers is visiting her mother. A friend, whom she's only spoken to over the net and phone, Dale Hessman, sent her a program with a weird glitch for her to de-bug. That night, he left to meet her and was killed in a plane crash. Angela discovers secret information on the disk she has received only hours before she leaves for vacation. Her life then turns into a nightmare, her records are erased from existence and she is given a new identity, one with a police record. She struggles to find out why this has happened and who has it in for her.
