Alexandria Slater explores symbols of togetherness and their cultural implications in Aleem Khan’s searing feature debut, After Love.

Philippe McKie ‘s first feature film and Japan’s first ever urban dance film is a visually electrifying and thematically layered take on the universal ‘struggling artist’ trope. Dreams on Fire captures the fierce beauty of Tokyo’s urban dance scene whilst shining a light on the sinister underbelly of the city’s entertainment industry.
