    Coup 53 + Recorded Q&A hosted by Michael Moore (Available from 8th January)

    We are delighted to bring Coup 53 back to our Virtual Screening Room.

    The story of the 1953 Anglo-American coup in Iran that overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister Mossadegh and reinstalled the Shah. Featuring never seen before archive which had been hidden for decades.

    While making a documentary about the Anglo-American coup in Iran in 1953, Iranian director Taghi Amirani and editor Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, The English Patient) discover extraordinary never seen before archive material hidden for decades. The 16mm footage and documents not only allow the filmmakers to tell the story of the overthrow of the Iranian government in unprecedented detail, but also lead to explosive revelations about dark secrets buried for 67years. What begins as a history documentary about 4 days in August 1953 turns into a live investigation, taking the filmmakers into uncharted cinematic waters.

    The roots of Iran's volatile relationship with Britain and America has never been so forensically and dramatically exposed.

    Kinokulture are pleased to be partnering with Pecadillo Pictures on the virtual release of Cocoon from 11th December.


    In the heat of a shimmering Berlin summer, Nora spends her days as a third wheel to her older sister Jule and her best friend Aylin. They think and talk only of boys and how to keep thin, whilst wandering the vibrant city streets taking selfies and juvenile social media videos. Feeling the pressures to fit in, Nora goes along with her sister's frolics - drinking, smoking and playing 'smack the finger' with the boys. But with their alcoholic mother largely absent, it is Jule who bears the brunt of Nora's supervision. Nora looks up to Jule but still keeps and cares for caterpillars, an activity she and her mother once shared.

    On a gym day at school, Nora gets her period for the first time in front of the class - one embarrassing step too far for Jule. When older student Romy rushes to Nora's rescue, a friendship blossoms and Nora falls fast in love for the first time. But as the hottest summer on record comes to a close, things will never be the same for Nora - the butterfly has emerged from her cocoon.

    A true depiction of the trials and triumphs of female adolescence, Cocoon is a raw and honest coming-of-age tale that every woman can relate to.
