Leading this week's DVD releases is one of the most inventive and original horrors of recent years, Hereditary. When the Graham family matriarch dies, her offspring begin to experience disturbing phenomena in their lives. As they each try to battle through this difficult period, her daughter Annie begins attending a grief support group, grandson Peter struggles to concentrate at school, and his sister Charlie begins to engage in some unsettling behaviour of her own.
Also this week, Summer 1993 is an accomplished debut from a first-time filmmaker about the grief experienced by a six year-old girl after the death of her parents. Leaving her home in Barcelona to live in the countryside with her aunt and uncle, as well as her three year-old cousin, the traumatised Frida struggles to adjust to this unfamiliar rural world in this delicate piece of visual filmmaking.
Filmmaking resources and inspiration for young students, from Agnes Varda's latest documentary.
