EYE IN THE SKY

DIRECTOR: Gavin Hood - UNITED KINGDOM

The goal of British-led Operation Cobra is the capture of Aisha Al Hady, a radicalized British citizen who has joined the Somali terrorist group Al Shabab. But their “capture” objective is changed to “kill” when the indomitable Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren), who has been tracking Al Hady for years, learns that Al Shabab is planning suicide attacks. Nevada-based drone operator Steve Watts targets Al Shabab’s Nairobi safehouse but reports back to London that a nine-year-old girl has entered the kill zone.

DIRECTOR: Terence Davies - UNITED KINGDOM

It’s the early 20th-century in rural Scotland and Chris Guthrie is a young woman with plans. Excelling at her schooling and in possession of a burgeoning independent streak, she seems destined for a job in teaching. But as the constellation of her family shifts around her and romance comes calling, Chris grows into womanhood just as the First World War begins to devastate a generation. A true Scottish epic, Sunset Song laments the devastation...
