          The internationally acclaimed new film from multi award-winning writer/director Ziad Doueiri, 2018 Oscar-nominee THE INSULT is a thrilling new legal drama centering on a minor disagreement that escalates into a nationwide controversy. Its a scorching hot afternoon in Beirut. Fort...y-something mechanic Tony already has a chip on his shoulder about Palestinians, so hes less than welcoming when 60 year-old Yasser, the foreman of a construction crew working on the street outside, asks him to fix the faulty drainpipe on his balcony. Tony closes the door in his face, so Yasser replaces the pipe anyway, only for Tony to smash it to pieces. Passions boil over, each man digs in, and what should have been a trivial incident easily shrugged off escalates quickly into a dispute that reverberates through their families and communities. Eventually lawyers are called in and the men find themselves in the centre of a highly publicised trial one that reopens historical and personal wounds on both sides.

          Rarely seen outside of Japan and never before released in Australia, Ocean Waves (Umi Ga Kikoeru) is one of Studio Ghibli's most sought after titles. Based upon author, essayist and playwright Saeko Himuro's most popular, best selling novel, Ocean Waves is one of the most poignan...t and unsung masterpieces within Studio Ghibli's legendary creative output. Wonderfully detailed and incredibly subtle, there are very few films in the history of animation that have managed to capture so well the joys and drama of adolescence and teenage alienation. Kochi is your average coastal town on the sleepy, idyllic island of Shikoku and young Taku is definitely your average high school student. But soon his quiet life will be turned upside down with the arrival of Rikako: a beautiful student recently transferred from Tokyo. By the end of the term Taku will have learnt a valuable lesson in love and friendship.
