My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts  E.J. McLeavey-Fisher

This Oscar-nominated animated film comes from Oscar-winning filmmaker Torill Kove (The Danish Poet). It's a tall tale about her grandmother's life in Oslo, Norway, during World War II. Sharp and whimsical, her story combines her grandmother's tales with historical events and fantasy, showing how a cherished anecdote can come to acquire a mythical status. King Harald of Norway said, "I love the irony of this short."

Earthrise   Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee

Hear the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space.

This iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. Told 50 years later, Earthrise compels us to remember this shift and to reflect on the Earth as a shared home.

Fish Story   Charlie Lyne

“The film was basically made on no budget, because my expectation was that it wasn’t going to lead anywhere,” explains filmmaker Charlie Lyne. “I thought it was going to be something I would do in a week and stick on the internet, but it ballooned into a six-month spare-time investigation that involved traveling across the British isles.”
