Love’s a beach
When Brazilian lifeguard Donato saves German biker Konrad from drowning, the pair immediately form a strong bond. Their passionate affair intensi- fies; Donato decides to leave his mother and younger brother Ayrton behind to start a new life with Konrad in Berlin. Far from the sun baked and wild Futuro Beach, Donato searches for a new identity in the cold but vital German capital. A visual feast, the spectacular but treacherous Futuro Beach and the misty streets of Berlin, provide the backdrop to this vibrant film featuring an electrifying soundtrack including David Bowie and Suicide.

Moviehouse, Dublin Road. 7pm. Wednesday 29th July. £6.00
One summer can change everything…
For the teenagers of a dusty village somewhere in the Netherlands, everything is about to change. Meeting up and cycling along the winding roads just doesn’t cut it anymore. In the shadow of the village’s power plant and under the summer sun, teenage angst, curiosity and kicks boil over as the burgeoning adults turn to cars, alcohol and each other’s skin to satisfy them.
Anne is one such teenager, caught up in the heat wave and spikes of puberty, we follow her journey across the sweltering summer months and her eyes, as they wander not over the boys but the girls.
DIRECTOR COLETTE BOTHOF. NETHERLANDS 2014. 89MINS.
