Anchored by an outstanding cast of Damien Lewis (Homeland, Billions), Guy Pearce (Jack Irish, Mare of Easttown) and Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland, Line of Duty) who bring to life the story of friendship and betrayal during the Cold War.

Yet despite the cool welcome, Gamache can’t help but find himself oddly drawn to this unusual place and its eccentric residents, including the owners of the bistro, Gabri and Olivier, artists Peter and Clara, bookshop-owner-come-psychologist Myrna, gallery owner Bea, and the irascible poet Ruth. The deeper Gamache delves into the secret lives of these people who have found sanctuary from the outside world in Three Pines, the more it affects him. Three Pines stars Alfred Molina, Rossif Sutherland, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, Sarah Booth, Pierre Simpson, Frédéric-Antoine Guimond, Julian Bailey, Anna Tierney, Tamara Brown, Tantoo Cardinal, Clare Coulter ABOUT FATE AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FROM FRIDAY 16 DECEMBER Things are about to get complicated for Margot Hayes (Emma Roberts) and Griffin Reed (Thomas Mann) who may well be the perfect couple…the only trouble is they’ve never met.

She’s ready to say “YES, YES, YES” but as fate would have it, at the same restaurant, Griffin Reed is planning to propose to the woman of his dreams, the drop-dead-gorgeous nightmare, Clementine, online influencer and local model, that very same night. Of course, things go anything but according to plan that evening. And with their respective dubious relationships going awry, it’s ultimately down to Margot and Griffin, two perfect strangers – and two perfect soulmates thrown together by fate – to see what’s staring them in the face…namely, each other. About Fate stars Emma Roberts, Thomas Mann, Lewis Tan and Madelaine Petsch.

November on iwonder

iwonder highlights for the month of November include First Lady of the Revolution, Red Lines, Partners of the Heart, Nasrin, The Helper, Mama Africa, Generation Utoya and Honeyland. This November, iwonder pays tribute to unsung heroes around the world, with three new films exploring nation builders, freedom fighters, and medical pioneers, each overcoming incredible challenges, from endemic racism to the daily threat of imprisonment and murder.Then in this month’s iwonder What Top Five, we pull together a collection of five powerful and moving films each exploring the struggles, great and small, of women throughout the world, from fighting inequality on a national scale, to the daily sacrifices of caring for family. First Lady of the Revolution Politics #History #Biography Launches 3rd November While visiting the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young Southern Belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a charismatic local farmer. That ride would propel her into history. The globally award-winning First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to José ‘Don Pepe’ Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile, political upheaval, and ultimately, lasting political reform. Screened in over 30 countries around the world to date, First Lady of the Revolution is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity, it’s also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world, and live a life she never imagined. Red Lines Freedom #War #Democracy Launches 10th November In 2012, two young, unlikely Syrian activists launch a radical plan for bringing democracy to their country, besieged by the brutal Bashar al-Assad regime. University student Razan uses her laptop to coordinate a smuggling network for bringing humanitarian aid and journalists into Syria. Damascus-born Mouaz works his contacts in the West, becoming a primary source for intel. Razan and Mouaz navigate a minefield, facing agonising decisions of who to aid and who to trust, all while hatching a Trojan-horse plan for a democratically run Syria starting with one free, empowered village.

Partners of the Heart Race #Medicine #History Launches 15th November Against the backdrop of segregation, Vivien Thomas, a black carpenter’s apprentice with a genius for surgery, and Dr. Alfred Blalock, a renowned white surgeon, dared to defy medical gospel by forging a partnership that changed the course of medical history. The two men’s work together led to one of the century’s major breakthroughs – a daring heart operation that has saved thousands of children afflicted with a congenital heart defect called “Blue Baby Syndrome.” With only a high school degree, Thomas became a cardiac pioneer and a teacher to two generations of America’s premiere heart surgeons at a time when he himself could not become one. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, Partners of the Heart is a compelling, often overlooked story of personal triumph over the strictures of time and place. iwonder When November 29th, 1944 Recreation of the Blue Baby Operation, featured in Partners of the Heart, launching November 15th on iwonder On November 29th, 1944, surgeon Alfred Blalock performed a heart operation on a baby – a procedure now considered routine by modern standards.

Born during the influenza pandemic of 1918, Boggs died from COVID-19 at her home in Montgomery, Alabama, on September 9, 2020, at the age of 102. iwonder What Women of purpose Against a backdrop of enduring inequality, violence, and threats to personal freedoms, every day women all over the world stand up to discrimination and forces of suppression to make the world a fairer, freer place for everyone.

Mood – AMC+ Exclusive New series premieres Sunday 6 November with first two episodes; new episodes premiere weekly. Sasha Clayton (Nicôle Lecky) dreams of becoming a major recording artist, but right now she’s a bedroom artist: spending her days smoking weed and stalking her ex-boyfriend (Jordan Duvigneau, My Mum Tracy Beaker) on Instagram. When she is kicked out of her family home for drunkenly trying to burn her ex’s house down, Sasha becomes homeless and is forced to fend for herself, sofa-surfing with local drug dealer Saleem (Mohammad Dalmar). Everything seems to change when she meets and moves in with Instagram influencer and party girl Carly (Lara Peake, Brave New World), who introduces her to the exciting world of making money and becoming ‘famous’ on social media. But as the gap between her online presence and her dream of being a singer continues to grow, Sasha finds herself struggling to escape this new influencer world that is more complex and darker than she could have imagined. The series is told in part through the songs that Sasha creates and features an innovative original soundtrack performed by Lecky. Based on her critically acclaimed Royal Court play Superhoe, the series has been called “invigorating” by The Guardian and “gripping” by Digital Spy in the UK. Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire – AMC+ Original Season finale premieres Sunday 6 November and full season available to binge. A sensuous, contemporary reinvention of Anne Rice’s revolutionary gothic novel, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson), Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) and Claudia’s (Bailey Bass) epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Chafing at the limitations of life as a black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat De Lioncourt’s offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion.  But Louis’s intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat’s newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, soon sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement. Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire stars Australian actor Sam Reid (The Newsreader, The Drover’s Wife) as Lestat de Lioncourt alongside Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones) as Louis, Bailey Bass as Claudia and Eric Bogosian (Succession, The Good Wife) as Molloy.

In True Crime Story: Indefensible, comedian Jena Friedman (Academy Award nominated writer and WGA winner of Borat 2) travels the country to unspool real cases on the ground. With less of a whodunnit and more of a “How the hell does this keep happening?” approach, Jena uses her fearless, probing interview style to dig deep into each case, sitting down with major players on both sides of the issues, all with the goal of revealing the hidden injustices and flaws which exist in our sometimes-dysfunctional criminal justice system. Documentary Now! S53 (AKA S4) –AMC+ Exclusive Episode five premieres Wednesday 2 November and episode six on 9 November, with full season available to binge.

Co-created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas, the six-time Emmy®-nominated Documentary Now! debuted to rave reviews from critics and quickly became a fan favourite thanks to its insightful take on some of the most well-known documentary films. Each episode, hosted by Dame Helen Mirren, takes viewers back in time to honour ground-breaking documentaries. Episode five, “My Monkey Grifter” is helmed by actor Jamie Demetriou (The Afterparty). Drawing inspiration from My Octopus Teacher, the episode follows Benjamin Clay (Demetriou), a filmmaker who forms a deep, emotional and financially taxing relationship with a monkey. The season finale, “Trouver Frisson”, stars French actor Liliane Rovère (Call My Agent!, Family  Business) and Ronald  Guttman (Godfather of Harlem, Sister of the Groom). Inspired by Agnes Varda’s Gleaners and I and Beaches of Agnes, celebrated French filmmaker Ida Leos (Rovère) searches for why she no longer experiences “frisson” –the goosebumps that have always been her guide. Sherman’s Showcase – AMC+ Exclusive Continues with episode four premiering on Wednesday 2 November; episodes continue weekly. The witty, irreverent and wholly original Sherman’s Showcase features sketches, dancers, fake commercials, movie trailers, cultural nostalgia, A-list guest stars and original songs (“Drop it Low for Jesus,” “Marina Del Ray”) that definitely climbed the fictional charts. Each episode of the series is hosted by Sherman McDaniels as he takes viewers through time, via music and comedy drawn from the 40-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show. Kevin Can F**K Himself (Season 1) Premieres Tuesday 1 November with full season available to binge. Kevin Can F**K Himself follows the story of Allison McRoberts (Annie Murphy, Schitt’s Creek), a woman we all grew up believing we knew: the prototypical Sitcom Wife. She’s beautiful and can take a joke (though she’s usually the butt of them). And she’s married to a guy who must’ve won some sort of marriage lottery, because she looks the way she does and he’s… funny. But what happens when we follow Allison out of her husband’s domain? When she finally wakes up to—and revolts against—the injustices in her life? Kevin Can F**K Himself breaks television convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask: “who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?” About AMC+ AMC+ is a new premium streaming bundle featuring an extensive line-up of popular and critically-acclaimed original programming from AMC Networks and other leading producers and distributors.

Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive. With these emotionally charged and terrifying ingredients as a starting point, Let The Right One In will upend genre expectations, turning a naturalistic lens on human frailty, strength and compassion.

October on iwonder

iwonder highlights for the month of October include Scattering J, Dancer, The Departure and The Twomey Family. On October 10th World Mental Health Day will see governments, organisations, and individuals around the world lend their support to mental health issues, addressing the stigmas, assumptions and inaction that can lead to the struggles of millions, and the tragic suicides of too many. Leading iwonder’s October highlights is Scattering CJ: the heart-breaking yet life-affirming story of a young man’s tragic suicide, and the mission taken up by strangers all over the world – led by his grieving mother – to scatter his ashes in places he would have longed to visit. Then in this month’s iwonder Top Five, we pull together a selection of films looking at the mental challenges and traumas often uniquely faced by young people, as they navigate the confusing path to adulthood through the constantly connected modern world. Scattering CJ Heartbreaking #Mental Health #World When seemingly happy, travel-infatuated CJ Twomey ended his own life at age 20, his family was plunged into unrelenting grief and guilt. In a moment of desperate inspiration, his mother, Hallie, put out an open call on Facebook, looking for a handful of travellers who might help fulfil her son’s wish to see the world by scattering some of his ashes in a place of beauty or special meaning. Twenty-one thousand strangers liked the Facebook page, and one thousand volunteers have since taken CJ to over one hundred countries. While crisscrossing the globe, his ashes and his family’s story have given rise to a social media phenomenon — a worldwide community — that has congregated in solidarity and empathy in dealing with a still heavily stigmatized and misunderstood form of mental illness. Aggregating hundreds of clips chronicling personal ash-scattering pilgrimages worldwide, including Kelly from Sydney, Hallie’s story shows us that social media can act as a connector and a vehicle for empathy, as opposed to the more toxic aspects of social media interaction we’re currently witnessing. Her story further illustrates how there can be positive action grown from suicide, and that even if it isn’t reliably predictable, in some cases it may still be preventable. Launches Thursday October 27th Dancer Mental Health #Culture #Inner Demons Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom – his talent more a burden than a gift. Here is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who made ballet go viral, and the high price that can come with virtuosity. The Departure Mental Health #Japan #Up Close Ittetsu Nemoto is a bad boy do-gooder. A 44-year-old Tokyo native, Nemoto loves riding his motorcycle and dancing all night in clubs. But he’s also a Rinzai Zen priest, who lives with his wife, mother and baby son at a temple in the remote countryside of Gifu prefecture, Japan. There, over the last ten years, he has become famous for his work in combating suicide. He relates to the men and women who come to him for help not as a professional, or a saintly spiritual figure bestowing wisdom from up on high—but instead, as one of them, a screwed-up individual full of pain and suffering, on a high-stakes mission to understand the purpose of being alive. Nemoto is remarkably successful in his career because he refuses to draw lines between suicidal people and himself—but that is also precisely why his problems begin. iwonder When 10th October October will offer a time of global reflection and focus on addressing mental health, with World Mental Health Day taking place on October 10th. Australia also ushers in National Mental Health Month, with Mental Health Week getting underway in Australian states across the country from 8th October. No matter where in the world people are, this period of mental health awareness is an opportunity for everyone to move towards a world in which mental health is valued, promoted and protected; where everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy mental wellbeing, and access to the care they need. iwonder Who The Twomey Family John, Hallie and Connor Twomey are ¾ of a family, following the devastating suicide of their son and brother, CJ, at age 20. John acts as the family rock, shouldering the weight of sadness that at times, threatens their sanity. Connor is the glue that holds the family together, choosing to live life and to create new memories as a way to honour the brother he adored. Hallie carries a burden of guilt surrounding CJ’s death which has moulded her into a life of advocacy, in the hope that her son’s story may help prevent others from following in his footsteps. They are all humbled and honoured by the response Scattering CJ has received and owe a debt of gratitude to all those who now consider themselves a part of the Scattering CJ community. iwonder What Growing Pains In this month’s iwonder Top Five – in support of mental health initiatives around the world – we pull together five documentaries each looking at challenges experienced by young people coping with the often confusing and challenging journey of self-discovery. 1) My Millennial Life Young people #Identity #employment Millennials are the most educated generation ever, but over half of college graduates end up unemployed or in dead-end jobs. My Millennial Life is an intimate documentary following the stories of four twenty-somethings as they fight to find their place in today’s world. Life is nothing like what they were promised: from the highs of internships at Vice and Google, to the lows of cleaning hotel bathrooms, the future has never looked more uncertain for Generation Y. 2) Adult Under Construction Young people #Identity #employment A 25-year-old woman seeks answers that explain her behaviour during adolescence, setting out on a journey looking for a scientific explanation. Every generation has

Renzo Piano: Architect of Light

October on Shelter

Shelter highlights for the month of October include Zaha Hadid: An Architect, A Masterpiece, The Le Corbusier Spirit, Renzo Piano: Architect of Light, Remi Koolhass: A Kind of Architect and Mies in Krefeld. ZAHA HADID – AN ARCHITECT, A MASTERPIECE DEFYING GRAVITY AND PREJUDICE One of the most celebrated and iconic architects in the world, Zaha Hadid was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. A designer of museums, towers, bridges, opera houses and stadiums; Hadid is widely considered one of the all-time greats. The Heydar Aliyev Center of Baku in Azerbaijan expresses a new kind of space in the city. Discovering the curves and secrets of this last amazing achievement, the documentary reflects on the career of one of the most ambitious artists of her time. “I didn’t even know I was a rebel … I just knew there was another thing” ZAHA HADID: AN ARCHITECT, A MASTERPIECE (52 mins) France 2016 (Available 3 October) THE LE CORBUSIER SPIRIT A VERITABLE URBAN LABORATORY: The modernist Firminy Vert, in the Loire region, is the biggest project ever built by Le Corbusier in Europe. An iconic and ambitious project, this utopian vision of a model modernist town was praised as one of Europe’s most accomplished postwar planning exercises. Juxtaposing Director Gilles Coudert’s experience growing up in the unusual and intriguing shapes of Le Corbunne to the influence Le Corbusier’s career has had upon a number of prominent modern artists; the film visits three major sites of Le Corbusier’s work, taking us from the Firminy buildings to the Cité Radieuse in Marseille and to the Cabanon de Roquebrune; and has insights from several contemporary artists on the work of Le Corbusier. THE LE CORBUSIER SPIRIT (52 mins) France 2018 (Available 10 October) RENZO PIANO – ARCHITECT OF LIGHT CREATING ATMOSPHERES Architect Renzo Piano and Director Carlos Saura discuss their view on the relationship between architecture and cinema and show us the magic surrounding the Centro Botín in Cantabria, Spain. Designed to almost float above the Costa de Cantabria, this gigantic arts centre – imagined by Renzo Piano – is a building that through time will modify the soul of the city forever. “Every place has a story to tell, it has its ‘spirit’; a kind of DNA.” “There’s a very subtle thread that connects technique to poetry.” RENZO PIANO: ARCHITECT OF LIGHT – (66 mins) Spain 2017 (Available 17 October) REM KOOLHASS – A KIND OF ARCHITECT UNMATCHED & VISIONARY An engaging and visually inventive profile of the architect, beginning with his family background and early influences. Through interviews with fellow architects, academics and with Koolhaas himself, we see the evolution of his architecture through the development of projects such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library, Casa da Musica in Porto and the unique creative designs for houses and living spaces. The film culminates with the construction of the landmark CC-TV building in Beijing– a very unusual skyscraper built as a loop in space held in place by a “collar” to prevent it from falling. A visually inventive, thought-provoking portrait of the architect. REM KOOLHASS: A KIND OF ARCHITECT (98 mins) Germany 2008 (Available 24 October) MIES IN KREFELD BURGEONING BAUHAUS For over a decade, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886 – 1969) worked almost exclusively for the Krefeld silk manufacturer Hermann Lange and his professional and private associates. Designing two upper middle-class villas, industrial buildings for Verseidag, apartment buildings, a clubhouse, furniture and exhibition stands – the works of Mies van der Rohe commissioned by clients in Krefeld are a testament of this famous architect’s versatility. Exploring the most important creative phase of Mies van der Rohe’s career, MIES IN KREFELD investigates the German region with the highest cluster of his groundbreaking buildings. Using partly unreleased film footage and photographic material, the film offers an insight into the cultural and social milieu in Krefeld in the 20s and 30s, showcases the projects that Mies – partly with his partner and colleague Lilly Reich – built for his Krefeld clients, and visualizes for the first time using 3D animations how three buildings planned by Mies for Krefeld would have looked like had they actually been built. MIES IN KREFELD (56 mins) Germany 2011 (Available 31 October) MIES IN KREFELD (56 mins) Germany 2011 (Available 31 October) Guest Curator: Jacinda Rogers Editor of New Zealand publication Architecture Now, Jacinda Rogers, has curated a selection of her favourite films on Shelter for this October.
