Posted at 9:30 am, April 29, 2012 in Arts & Entertainment

For a thoroughly global cinematic experience, catch the latest DocHouse screenings across London this May. Next month they continue their ‘Global Watch’ program with four insightful documentaries highlighting issues and ideas from around the modern world. On Tuesday 1 May (8.30pm) the Prince Charles will host the UK premiere of ‘They Call it Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain’, a series of intimate interviews with Burmese people from various generations, including opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The film will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the director, Robert H. Lieberman. On Thursday 10 May (7.30pm) Riverside Studios will show the hotly anticipated ‘Marley’, and Oscar-winning director Kevin MacDonald will appear afterwards to lead a discussion on the Reggae cultural icon. On Thursday 17 May (8.30pm) the Tricycle will feature the UK premiere of ‘Surviving Progress’, an examination of technology, economics and consumption in global society featuring thoughts from Margaret Atwood, Jane Goodall and Stephen Hawking and executively produced by Martin Scorsese. Finally, on Thursday 24 May (8pm) Rich Mix will showcase ‘Dear Mandela’, a close look at the rebellious young people protecting their constitutional rights in South Africa’s sprawling shantytowns. The price of £7 per screening means the world’s horizons have never been more affordable.
