Black Peter
(Černý Petr)

A film by Miloš Forman

"Simply an irresistibly wry and witty look at life's little pitfalls, full of affection for every last one of the characters" Time Out

Presented from a brand new 4K restoration of the film, Second Run presents the stunning debut feature film of the late, great Czech filmmaker Miloš Forman (A Blonde in Love, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus).

Neon Bull
(Boi neon)

A film by Gabriel Mascaro
Brazil, 2015

“Neon Bull is a profound reflection on the intersection of the human and bestial... exalts carnal passion in beautiful, almost sculptural love scenes” New York Times

Gabriel Mascaro’s sensual, subversive Neon Bull unfolds within the macho world of traditional Brazilian rodeo. Balancing provocative realism with improvisational drama, Neon Bull explores the lives of its protagonists with fierce, funny, sweaty intimacy, lyrically subverting its macho domain.

Available on both Blu-Ray and DVD formats, Neon Bull is presented from the brand new HD transfer of the film, with special features including an extended 'Making of' featurette and director Gabriel Mascaro in conversation at the Film fra Sør festival in Norway, plus a booklet featuring a previously unpublished interview with the director by David Jenkins.
