Dial M for Murder 3D

Dial M for Murder, film

Shot in 3D and newly remastered and restored, Alfred Hitchcock’s screen version of Frederick Knott’s stage hit is a tasty blend of elegance and suspense, casting Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings as the points of a romantic triangle. Margot (Kelly) is in love with Mark (Cummings); her husband Tony (Milland) plots her murder. But when he dials a Mayfair exchange to set the plot in motion, his right number gets the wrong answer…

Bad Timing


Jack wants to spice things up in his relatively new relationship with Moni with a spontaneous trip to Sommerberg, a hotel that has been abandoned for years. Meanwhile, eleven-year-old Alice is playing hide-and-seek with her friend Ines.Too many different desires, too many different people and all of them at the same deserted place…

The director, Gülsel Özka, was present to take part in a Q&A session following the screening.


Pina + Ora

6th May (Tuesday) – 8pm

Panel discussion on the exploration of dance and movement in 3D



Shot with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, this feature-length dance film portrays the exhilarating and inimitable art of Pina Bausch. Inviting the viewer on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery right onto the stage of the legendary ensemble, the film also accompanies the dancers beyond the theatre, into the city and the surrounding industrial landscape of Wuppertal – the place that was the home and centre of Pina Bausch’s creative life for more than 35 years.

3D, with its illusion of depth, enhances the beauty and power of movement, bringing a unique sculptural quality to dance.



Ora is an experimental short film that brings together the artistic worlds of choreographer José Navas and filmmaker Philippe Baylaucq. It’s the first film to use 3D thermal imaging, producing visuals unlike anything ever seen before: the luminous variations of body heat seen on skin, bodies emitting a multitude of colours, a space filled with movement that transforms itself.

The films will be followed by a panel discussion on the exploration of dance and movement in 3D.NFB-logo

The film was produced with the support of the National Film Board of Canada.


10th May (Saturday) – 2pm
