THE PROPAGANDA GAME

Dir: Álvaro Longoria

The secretive communist state of North Korea is at the centre of a propaganda war. With remarkable access, director Álvaro Longoria attempts to get to the bottom of what's actually happening inside the country and separate truth from fiction.

In 1972, athletes from around the globe gathered in Munich, Germany for the Olympic Games. However, the Olympic spirit of brotherhood and peaceful competition was shattered when eight Palestinian terrorists invaded the athletes' quarters to take the Israeli team hostage while the world looked on, incredulous. Using extraordinary archive footage including the only surviving member of the Black September group, the film tells the dramatic story of what happened during those 21 hours in Munich.

 

THE NIGHTMARE

Dir: Rodney Ascher

Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237) meets eight sufferers of sleep paralysis and discovers the terror that awaits them when they fall asleep each night. Using dramatic reconstructions, compelling first-hand accounts and slick cinematic trickery, The Nightmare will entertain, educate and completely petrify.

This week we're celebrating one of the most experimental, form pushing director's in the country with a retrospective at Bertha DocHouse. We kick off with Brian Hill's latest film, a real-life noir thriller which uncovers the truth behind Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, Thomas Quick.
