Highlights include The Balibo Conspiracy starring Anthony LaPaglia, an engaging thriller about five Australian journalists who go missing during Indonesia’s invasion of Timor in 1975; Raoul Peck’s Haiti-set Shakespearan tragedy Moloch Tropical; and the thought-provoking The Sun Behind the Clouds – Tibet’s Struggle for Freedom.

Closed Societies: Iran and North Korea, Accountability and Justice, and Development and Migration are the main themes explored by this year’s selection.

Showing 17-26 March at The Ritzy, ICA, Curzon Soho and Curzon Mayfair.
