Mat Whitecross’s film documents the journey from the moment in 1991 when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s band. The two boys who shared a bedroom growing up, were now sharing a stage. In less than three years Oasis would release their first album ‘Definitely Maybe’ – becoming the fastest-selling debut album in British history to date. By 1996, Oasis announced they were to play two nights at Knebworth Park. 2.6 million applied for tickets, the band played to 125,000 fans per night – they could have played 20 nights.
The film makers have been given unprecedented access from the band giving a rare and candid insight into their world along with never before seen archive material. On The Corner joined forces with Fiona Neilson and Simon Halfon to deliver a psychedelic journey into the world of the band that shaped the history of British Rock’n’Roll.
Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success.
On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most dysfunctional football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other.
Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off of it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams.
But then came the dark side. Maradona’s transfer fee was rumoured to have been financed by the city’s mafia – the Camorra. Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded…?
The third film from the Academy-Award nominated, BAFTA-winning team behind SENNA and AMY, the film will be partly constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive and in the style of SENNA and AMY, will be a high-end and definitive feature documentary made with the full support of Maradona.
In a city where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. This is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.
From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words.
Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era.
Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.
Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.
There are 2 Palio horse races in Siena every year, on July 2nd and August 16th.
The race itself only lasts ninety seconds and the prize is a painted cloth banner. But it is much more than a mere horse race: while it may seem a medieval ritual for tourists, it is in fact the living heart of Siena. “Palio is Life,” as the Sienese proudly say.
An epic and intimate portrait of this medieval horse race in one of the most beautiful squares in the world, seen through the eyes of its jockeys. The good, the bad and the ugly of the Palio mirror Italy’s passion, romance, glory and corruption.
A film that takes the viewer inside the body and mind of the best footballer in the world.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a player at the peak of his powers, in the biggest year of his life.
The Movie will follow a man on a mission to become the greatest player the world has ever seen. With unprecedented access and never before seen archive footage CR7 will reveal the man, past, present and future.
