F For Fake 1973
85 minutes certificate PG in English
Directed by Orson Welles
Orson Welles plays host and unreliable narrator in this discursive documentary, where he wonders and wanders, while musing on matters of art, creativity, truth and reality. He opens cases of authenticity and authorship: hoaxes involving a bogus biography of Howard Hughes; forged Picasso paintings; and radio broadcasts of Martian invasions. Editing together existing footage, home-movies and staged scenes, Welles connects his career memories, buzzing ideas and some sleight of hand into inventive, playful cinema. One of his final completed projects as director, he called it “a new kind of film,” while the BFI’s Geoff Andrew says, “it’s absolutely spellbinding.”
Voted 15th Greatest Documentary of All Time in Sight and Sound’s critics poll.

Black Girl – La noire de… 1966
59 minutes certificate 15 in French with English subtitles
Directed by Ousmane Sembène
Starring M’bissine Thérèse Diop, Anne-Marie Jelinck, Robert Fontaine, Momar Nar Sene

A young woman in Senegal works as a child-minder for a wealthy family, and then moves to France with her employers, where her living is degraded by overwork and seclusion, while she is demoralised by insults and indignities. This critique of racism, post-colonial tensions and cultural prejudice is a “human drama as well as a radical political statement – and one of the essential films of the 1960s.” “One of the founding works of African cinema,” this was the debut feature from the director called the “father of African film”.
