3 November: I’m Gonna Explode

Troubled Mexican teenagers Roman and Maru go on the run, steal cars and lose their virginity in this gorgeous 2009 film. Imagine Bonnie and Clyde remade by Jean-Luc Godard and you’re halfway there. Sexy, funny and unconventional.

Plus the short film King of Deptford Creek by London film-maker Fred Rowson.

“Imagine Bonnie and Clyde as remade by Jean Luc Godard: Mexican director Gerardo Naranjo’s I’m Gonna Explode is a stylish hand-grenade of a film.” TELEGRAPH

“This… was produced, among others, by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna and shows the same fascination with youthful upheaval and the European filmmaking tradition with which those actors have been associated when taking Mexican film to the global stage. An unusual and imaginative love story.” TIME OUT
