Highlights of the new season
1. Three films by Joseph Losey, the versatile and eclectic American director who chose to work in Britain in the later part of his career - two of which (The Servant & Accident) are scripted by Nobel literature laureate Harold Pinter.
2. A classic of Italian neo-realism Umberto D by Vittorio de Sica, director of Bicycle Thieves.
3. Four outstanding films from the Alliance Francaise - La Haine, The Wall, La Reine Margot & Time Regained) - all favourites of the arthouse circuit.
4. Gillo Pontecorvo's classic Battle of Algiers - powerful, unflinching, and so realistic it's like watching a documentary.
5. Garin Nugroho's A Poet - a lesser film in his oeuvre but nonetheless of great political importance. Kelab plans to bring Garin to Malaysia in 2006 tog with a program of his films.
6. ...and of course new editions of Malaysian Shorts & Documentaries.
7. Other special programs to be announced in due course.
