Two very different films hit our cinema screens this week, both with something to say about our modern day world and how progress takes different forms. Whether its a zany, laugh-a-minute animation or a grassroots documentary from Nepal, this week's releases are both optimistic in their own special way.

Safety is of course at the forefront of everyone's mind right now so make sure to check out the specific guidelines for your local cinema before visiting. Meanwhile, many cinemas have used lockdown as an opportunity to improve and renovate their venues so that we can all enjoy the best possible cinema experience.

Ron's Gone Wrong

All kinds of films are beginning to reflect the important role that technology plays in our lives these days and children's films are no different. This debut animation from British-based Locksmith Studios follows Barney, a lonely but cheery youngster who is desperate to obtain the newest craze in technology, the B*Bot, despite his family insisting he does not need one. When Barney's father ultimately gives in and steals a malfunctioning B*Bot for his son's birthday, Barney finds himself with a strange but lovable new friend. However, they soon find themselves on the run from the authorities who are determined to take the B*Bot back and shut it down. The importance of friendship and a strong anti-bullying stance take center stage in this charming, fast-paced adventure.

I Am Belmaya

I Am Belmaya documents the birth of an artistic voice from the most unlikely of circumstances, making it an optimistic and challenging film about the importance of allowing other voices the space to speak. The film's subject and artistic collaborator is a young woman named Belmaya Nepali who, despite having an upbringing full of abuse and prejudice, maintains her spirit of defiance and longs to do something important with her life. After having been introduced to her at an orphanage in Nepal, Sue, a seasoned filmmaker, makes the decision to mentor Belmaya in her quest to become a filmmaker and follow her dreams, giving Belmaya the equipment needed for her to make her first film. This intimate documentary is an important look at the oppressive and patriarchal systems that prevent women from exploring their passions in Nepal.
