Tickets are on sale now for the first Open City London Documentary Festival which runs from June 16-19 in various venues around Bloomsbury. Cramming an extraordinary 150-odd films into just 4 days (at only £5 a ticket) this is a must for all fans of real-life cinema. Subject matter is broad, from the drug trade (‘Cocaine Unwrapped’) and the Russian Mafia (‘Thieves by Law’) to the capital’s architectural heritage (‘Utopia London’) (above/below) and filmmaking in rural Argentina (‘The Peddler’). Keep an eye on Time Out’s web pages for exclusive reviews and full listings.
