London's vastness beckons to those looking for something different, somewhere to think and speculate, someplace to retreat and take refuge. Repetition of the everyday and the never-ending skyline offer assurance and ease. Or compel you to investigate the most pressing question plaguing Londoners: what are those 200-foot metal structures dotting the city?

This brilliant line up of London-centric films captures the widely experienced emotions of anxiety, the unsettling shift into adulthood, and the dreaded 'panic years.' One filmmaker examines why we accept things the way we do in a wry and amusing documentary, while another brings alive the historic landscape in a series of visually compelling montages. Warda Mohamed’s debut narrative intimately depicts the different ways people can grieve and the unexpected connections you can find in those solemn moments. Umloda Ibrahim
