The Death of Stalin

15very strong language, brief strong violence

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci.

In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is a Quad and Main Journey production, directed by Armando Iannucci, and produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky, and Laurent Zeitoun. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with additional material by Peter Fellows.

Those Who Jump

Those Who Jump

In northern Morocco lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla. Thousands of hopeful African migrants attempt to jump the fence separating Morocco and Spain each year. The migrants need to overcome the razor-wire, automatic pepper spray and brutal authorities. After every failed attempt, they return to Mount Gurugu, scouring for food in the nearby villages, trying to uphold some sort of order in the camp and building up their confidence again. Some give up and return home, others never return.

Abou Bakar Sidibe from Mali is one of the migrants ceaselessly trying to make a successful jump for over a year. When he is given a camera, he becomes not only the protagonist in front of the camera but the person behind it. Through the lens, Abou gradually finds expression and meaning in his situation, but after 16 months on the mountain Abou is close to a tragic accident. Returning to Mali is not an option for him and he becomes more determined than ever to pursue his dream of a better life in Europe.

Travel

Travel is an ethnofiction presenting the life history of Joy, a Nigerian migrant woman selling sex in the Bois de Vincennes in Paris. Joy left Nigeria in order to help her family after the death of her father. She knew that she was going to sell sex before leaving, but was unaware of the hard working and life condition she would have had to face in France. Travel explores Joy's experiences of self-realisation and exploitation in the sex industry by representing the way she gradually reinterprets her experience of self-realisation through migration as also characterised by exploitation and trafficking.

Travel was co-written by Nicola Mai and a group of 8 Nigerian migrant sex workers assisted by the Bus des Femmes association in Paris. Its main character Joy is the embodiment of their collective experiences and trajectories of migration, self-realisation and exploitation. The roles in the films are played by some non-professional actresses, including some of the original co-authors, in order to protect them from the stigmatisation associated with sex work and also to question what constitutes authenticity when understanding and representing humanitarian processes in scientific and filmic terms.
