Lee Israel had a legitimate career as an author of biographies. Her first book on Tallulah Bankhead was a New York Times bestseller, and her second, on the late journalist and reporter Dorothy Kilgallen, made a splash in the headlines. But by 1990, almost broke and desperate to hang onto her Upper West Side studio, Lee made a bold and irreversible career change: inspired by a letter she'd received once from Katharine Hepburn, and armed with her considerable skills as a researcher and celebrity biographer, she began to forge letters in the voices of literary greats.

Between 1990 and 1991, she wrote more than three hundred letters in the voices of, among others, Dorothy Parker, Louise Brooks, Edna Ferber, Lillian Hellman, and Noel Coward and sold the forgeries to memorabilia and autograph dealers.

"Everyone knows who won. But not everyone knows how."

The result of the Brexit referendum in the summer of 2016 caused a political earthquake that laid waste to the normally stable British establishment and sent political tremors across the world. This punchy and provocative feature length drama goes exclusively behind the scenes of the “Vote Leave” campaign, unpacking the personalities, strategies, and feuds of the winning side, and exploring the new world of data driven campaign tactics.

Brexit: The Uncivil War is not an analysis of who was right and who was wrong. It is the story of how it happened, and why - on the high street, in the campaign offices, and the darker corners of the internet. A drama of political ambition and personal betrayals with nation-changing results.

Bram Fischer, a sympathetic lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend these men, attempting to hide the fact that he, too, frequently convened on the farm where they were arrested.

Dutch filmmaker Jean van de Velde captures a dark period in South Africa's recent history, skillfully balancing a nail-biting political thriller with spectacular courtroom intrigue while paying tribute to the legendary figures who fought to end segregation and corruption in their country.
