Lanzarote and Dogwoof present a new series of documentaries at MOTH CLUB this summer, including Vs. The Life And Films Of Ken Loach, Michael Moore’s Where To Invade Next and political scandal Weiner.
Sunday 5 June, Moth Club, 7:30pm: VS The Life And Films Of Ken Loach
VS. is a funny, provocative and revealing account of the life and career of one of Britain’s foremost filmmakers, Ken Loach, as he turns eighty and looks back at over fifty years of filmmaking.
Director Louise Osmond was granted exclusive access on set and uses this as a starting point to assay Loach’s career, from his early work as a farcical theatre director, to his TV dramas and later as an award winning feature director.
Sunday 19 June, Moth Club, 7:30pm: Where To Invade Next
Academy Award®-winning director Michael Moore is back with WHERE TO INVADE NEXT: a provocative and hilarious comedy in which Moore will stop at nothing to figure out how to actually make America great again.
From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs. Through his travels, we discover just how different America is from the rest of the world.
Sunday 17 July, Moth Club, 7:30pm: Weiner
With unprecedented access to Anthony Weiner, his family, and his campaign team as they mount his New York City mayoral campaign, the film documents the impending political meltdown of epic proportions. What begins as an unexpected comeback from a disgraced ex-congressman takes a sharp turn once Weiner is forced to admit to new sexting allegations.
As the media descends and rips apart his every move, Weiner tries desperately to forge ahead, but the increasing pressure and crippling 24-hour news coverage halts his political aspirations dead in their tracks.
