        • 53 min

        'Guns in the Afternoon' tells the story of Kieron Bernard, a.k.a. Kidco: gang leader, gangster rapper and street hustler, who went to public school. Born the eldest son of a poor single mother with nine children, he was brought up in the West London council estate of Emlyn Gardens. He lived for music and imbued himself in American gangster rap culture. Kieron was the leader and inspiration for his gang of rappers, who called themselves 'Tribel'. He loved his mother more than life itself and, through his music, tried to raise her out of poverty in order to make her happy. He had made numerous trips to the United States of America, working on his new album, and was due to sign a record contract the week he was killed. He died in a shootout in a Nandos chicken restaurant in Shepherds Bush on 30th January 2002 after an argument over his haircut. His music prophetically expressed the violent world and life he led until his untimely death. He was 25 years old. Using his rap music as soundtrack, the film depicts the two different ways his family and his gang members deal with the tragedy of his senseless death. It explores the underworld of the urban black youth and the nihilistic world they occupy.

            A blind, former police cadet aids a police detective in capturing an elusive serial killer in this urban thriller from South Korea. Min Soo-ah (Kim Ha-neul) was a promising police trainee who lost both her brother and her sight in a tragic car accident. Three years later, after visiting the orphanage where she and her late sibling grew up, Min Soo-ah calls a taxi for a ride home and instead ends up in the backseat of a car driven by a depraved serial killer (Yang Young-jo). When the madman is involved in a hit-and-run accident, Min Soo-ah makes a daring escape. Min Soo-ah is certain that the man who picked her up is the same man who has been abducting and torturing local women, but the skeptical Detective Jo (Jo Hie-Bong) initially dismisses her testimony on the basis that she's blind. Eventually, she convinces him that her senses are sharper than he suspected, through the trail of clues quickly runs cold. Later, when motorcycle delivery driver Kwon Ki-Sub (Yoo Seung-Ho) reports that he, too witnessed the accident, and that the car involved was an imported sedan, Min Soo-Ah finds herself on the run from a mysterious stalker with malevolent intentions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

                    Co-habitating and conversing in hopes of copulating. Wes is a struggling artist whose artistic process is tied up in processed food, and his roommate Dale has a better handle on his Wii than women. In hopes of a hookup, both meet up with the ever-hopeful Amy and her introverted sister June - also roommates. The online-initiated blind date proves an awkward outing for the four until Dale suggests they each share a story from their lives. The exercise is increasingly sardonic, mocking the lengths to which some strangers will go in hopes of becoming intertwined. Life is funniest when it's happening to someone else.

                      The story of two teen boys, Jordan and Mike, and their quest to start a garage band. They recruit a female bass player, a British drummer and an accidental egg player - all adults - as the boys struggle to balance summer school, nosy parents, and a pair of bumbling two-bit managers who want to control the band. A coming of age family musical with all original songs written and performed by the lead actors, Your Name Here is an inspiration for kids who believe anything is possible. Written by Tamar Halpern
