On opening night we have Neruda, directed by Pablo Larrain and an official selection of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival - Director's Fortnight. It's a 108min long drama set in 1948 during the cold war. It's a reimagining of the Nobel Prize winning poet Neruda who accuses the left-wing government of betraying the Communist Party. Bumbling Police prefect Oscar Peluchonneau sets out to arrest the fleeing Neruda and his wife who have been forced into hiding. Inspired instead of afraid of his new predicament, Neruda raises the stakes in this game of cat and mouse, making it more dangerous and intimate. Ingeniously crafted, funny, yet gripping, it's been touted as Larrain's finest accomplishment to date.

The Violin Teacher by Sérgio Machado is a 100min long drama from Brazil. Inspired by the true story of the Baccarelli Insitute and the play Acorda Brasi, the story of Laerte, a former child prodigy violinist with an immense promise of talent that has not been fulfilled. Failing an important audition, Laerte finds himself filled with life's struggles. Reluctantly he takes a job teaching children in one of the biggest slums in Latin America - Heliopolis. They're a challenge; unruly, ill-disciplined and chaotic, he is shocked. But somehow, amidst the chaos, he sees raw potential in some and gets drawn into their world, until his former life threatens to pull them all apart. This film is a moving tribute to the power of music, so let it sing to your soul.
