Dog Day Afternoon
All the World a Prison: Set against the backdrop of the Attica Prison riots of 1971, Sidney Lumet's Dog Day Afternoon dramatises a bank robbery that goes horribly wrong. Al Pacino's Sonny is a force of destructive passion in the greatest role of his career. Dog Day takes aim at all prisons in which we are held captive, the prison of debt, the prison of the law and the prison of our very bodies.

'What is robbing a bank as compared to the founding of one?'

Pizza Birra Faso
Pizza, Birra, Faso (Pizza, Beer & Cigarettes) follows the exploits of a gang of impoverished teens as they attempt to survive the brutality and the beauty of the streets of Buenos Aires. Canonised as the 'spark that ignited the New Argentine Cinema', the film continues to burn with the proposition: should we starve or should we steal?
