Edinburgh-based Chilean filmmaker Felipe Bustos Sierra successfully explores political protest in this wonderfully humane documentary about the Rolls Royce factory workers in East Kilbride who showed their solidarity with the people of Chile by refusing to fix the fighter jet engines used by Pinochet in the military coup of 1973. The film explores this modest act of rebellion in an admirably low-key way that emphasises the fundamental decency of the men who took a stand.  Reuniting the key players who risked their careers, the film shows how an act of oppression in a part of the world to which these men had no personal ties was still like a red rag to a bull.

'But what makes the film special is Sierra's ability to trace the real-world effect these men had by picking up the story in Chilie.' Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman

In 1961 a team of psychiatrists led by Peter Neubauer worked with an adoption agency in the United States to split up a set of identical triplet boys, born to a teenage girl, and place them with families from different socio-economic backgrounds; they wanted to know how three boys with identical DNA would be affected by being brought up in different environments.  This documentary by British film director Tim Wardle traces the extraordinary lives of the triplets, who knew nothing of one another until being reunited by chance at the age of 19.

'That old adage of truth being stranger than fiction has never been more apt, nor so artfully explored, as in Tim Wardle's fascinating documentary.' Nikkie Baughan, The List.
