We hope you enjoyed the LIFF 2020 programme on Leeds Film Player in November. We are presenting new selections of films year-round on the Player from 16th December, see you back here soon!
For our documentary programme section, Cinema Versa, we present a collection of fascinating and essential features and short films. There are profiles of two of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Stanley Kubrick and Andrey Tarkovsky, and films about the power of art and music with Bring Down the Walls from artist Phil Collins and Huw Wahl’s The Republics, inspired by poet and activist Stephen Watts. Mind the Gap - Democracy Ltd from Robert Schabus looks at the crisis of democracy and rise of populism around Europe, and Dieudo Hamadi’s Cannes-selection Downstream to Kinshasa follows a group of war survivors on their journey down the Congo River to make their voices heard.
