Until May 19: Bowling for Columbine (2002)

An American documentary film written, directed and narrated by Michael Moore, who explores gun culture in the US, and in particular the main causes for the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. A controversial film that drew as many criticisms as it did accolades, Bowling for Columbine retains its power to shock.

Until May 20: That Day (2003)

A French comedy packed with witty Hitchockian visual touches. Directed by Raúl Ruiz, That Day centres around a father and his mentally ill daughter from a previous marriage. In a desperate attempt to rid her from his life, the father schemes for a murderous psychopath to be released from an asylum to kill her. But the daughter and the psychopath have other plans – including an ill-fated romance.

Until May 21: Fast Film (2003)

Fast Film depicts a classic chase scenario (complete with a hero, villain and damsel in distress) but the execution is far from ordinary. Director Virgil Widrich takes the animation genre to a new level by interweaving scenes from more than 300 feature films and different types of animation to tell the story. Nominated for a Palme d'Or for Best Short Film at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, this takes cinema to a new level.

Until May 24: The Conformist (1970)

Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Conformist is often credited with influencing the filmmaking style of Scorsese and Coppola. Set in Italy during the Fascist era, the story centres around a weak-willed Italian man who goes abroad to arrange the assassination of his old teacher, now a political dissident. The movie that put Bertolucci on the world cinema map.
