AS IT IS IN HEAVEN: A DIVINELY TWISTED COMEDY
When hesitation stays his trigger finger, suicidal businessman Tom Freeman sends a plea for help to a god he hasn't believed in for 30 years. But as he soon learns - if you call Heaven, be sure you know who's answering the phone!
Director: Luke Bruehlman, USA
Beverley follows a mixed race girl's struggle to carve out a sense of identity in the confusing, shifting cultural landscape of1980 Leicester. A move from the decaying, poverty-stricken, urban environment to the relative comfort and theoretical safety of white suburbia does not provide the hope and opportunities Bev may have wished for. A familiar enemy is ever present - a threat that extends beyond her own safety, as she must also protect her brother and sister. By asserting her will and using her guile Bev tries to shape her new environment into something palatable, but the result is the opposite of what she is trying to achieve.
Director: Alexander Thomas, United Kingdom
