FEEL GOOD #1 | FILM DETAILS
From County Sligo in Ireland, Charlie Clay is 10 years old and has Asperger’s syndrome. Although he embraced his diagnosis, he sometimes wishes he could be more like the other boys in his class. But Charlie has two passions – dancing and surfing – and he’s come up with a unique way to combine the two. We follow Charlie through the ups and downs of his summer surf camp – with impressive dance moves guaranteed.
BIKER BOB'S POSTHUMOUS ADVENTURE
While walking along a beach on Vancouver Island, Canada, Bethany and Caleb Harding stumble across was a message in a bottle. It said, “Biker Bob. If you find me, turn me loose.” Biker Bob’s Posthumous Adventure follows the bizarre mystery of Biker Bob and his afterlife visits across Vancouver Island. It’s a truly remarkable story – with twists and turns – about a man on a motorcycle, a group of strangers who became friends and the enduring power of love.
When you’re racing through the jungles and mountains of South America, the last thing you need is a stray dog tagging along. But that's exactly what happened to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a Swedish adventure racing team, when he threw a scruffy but dignified stray a meatball. This heart-warming film tells the story of how a street dog called Arthur joined an adventure racing team on one of the toughest challenges in the world – and kept going until he found a place to call home.
JUST HOLD ON
Sheep riding star and future spy, seven-year-old Marlie McDonald is a symbol of resilience and vigour. Marlie was born with an aggressive brain tumour and spent her first few years in hospitals. Today, fearless Marlie is in long-term survival care… and is also a bona fide mutton bustin’ champion. Her survival spirit is infectious as the fiery redhead holds on to life, her family and, of course, those incredibly adorable sheep.
LOVE LETTERS FROM EVEREST
Love Letters from Everest documents not only the second expedition ever to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain, but also a transatlantic love story, told through letters discovered in a dusty box of personal archives belonging to the filmmaker’s grandparents. In captivating detail, filmmaker Celeste Koon uses creative animation of Kodachrome photos, newspaper clippings, maps and handwritten letters to tell this remarkable story from the 1956 Swiss Everest expedition.
A MILE AN HOUR
How much can you get done in 24 hours? Combining a desire to both get rid of the gut and spend quality time tinkering in his shed, Beau Miles sets himself an unusual challenge: to run one mile every hour for 24 hours… and to spend the minutes between the miles making things and fixing stuff in his workshop. This unusual experiment becomes simultaneously the fullest, most meaningful and most trivial day of Beau’s life.
GOLDEN AGE KARATE
Jeff Wall Jr is a teenage karate superhero who was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame at the age of 10. But after spending time with his grandmother, Jeff learns about the loneliness of old age, and starts a karate class for senior citizens in his home state of Ohio. The routine, discipline, exercise and fun of martial arts hit a chord with residents, and this joyful film is a reminder that you are never too young or too old to learn something new.
BORN TO BE MILD
The modern world is constantly speeding up. But not for the Dull Men's Club – a group of men quite content with life's more sedate pleasures. From photographing post boxes to collecting milk bottles, Born to be Mild is an uplifting celebration of finding joy in the very ordinary, and the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life.
Please note that the film programme may be subject to change and some of the films may contain a small amount of coarse language.
