Axis of Light

Seen through the work of eight leading artists, Axis of Light, is a poignant and absorbing observation, of the beauty and mystery of the Middle East which is often ignored, especially today where anger and violence demand centre stage in our media and where stereotypes and prejudices distort our view of this region. Through the eyes of these artists, a human face so often overshadowed by conflict and war is revealed.

A brilliant and compelling documentary

China Power

Chinese Art has caught the world's attention. Once considered obscure and exotic, it now commands millions at international auction. China's contemporary artists are the rock stars of the art world, living a lifestyle more synonymous with New York than the Peoples Republic of China. 'China Power' is a reflection of modern China by its artists, filmmakers, and curators.

This film shows just why modern China has shaken up the contemporary art market
