Mind-blowing documentary A Glitch In The Matrix from director Rodney Ascher comes to Blu-ray and DVD 10 May 2021

Garnering critical acclaim and sparking many conversations on its premiere at Sundance 2021, A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Rodney Ascher is set for its release on Blu-ray and DVD on 10 May 2021 from Dogwoof and is available now on digital HD.

The film looks at a question that has been around since the dawn of philosophy. What if our world and everything in it isn't real? The digital age has seen the idea of simulation theory enter the mainstream, particularly with The Wachowskis' seminal The Matrix and now the mind-blowing feature documentary A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX from Ascher (Room 237, The Nightmare) explores this very question in a ground- breaking documentary. Ascher and producer Ross Dinerstein ponder the questions it throws up - what does it mean if our whole existence is on the whim of some strange creature or gamer somewhere?

We meet a fascinating line-up of people including those who believe we are living in some kind of game simulation, as well as scientists, experts and amateur sleuths who have been looking at this remarkable theory.

Beginning with Plato and using sci-fi master Philip K Dick as a major starting point, the film blends digital tech and animation to create a vibrant viewing experience. Bright, exciting talking avatars are used to represent true believers who believe in Simulation Theory rather than talking heads. And 3D animation is used to add more visual style to the film, which also bristles with scores of film clips, not least of The Matrix itself. The shadow of the 1999 film looms large over A Glitch in The Matrix, including interviews with a Neo obsessive whose lawyers advised using The Matrix Defence in court after being accused of brutal crimes.

Is it science fiction or science fact? Is it a cop out to avoid the complexities and madness of the modern world? Will you take the red pill? Or the blue pill? Watch A Glitch in The Matrix and decide.

'Genre-bending... Ascher's technique created a fascinating brainstorm essay equally about cinema, spectatorship and the ability of works of art to generate interpretations well beyond the intentions of their makers'

Acclaimed Ghanaian tragi-comedy Lucky from director Fofo Gavua comes to digital 10 May 2021

It's time to get Lucky, as this thrilling new feature from first time director and exciting new voice in Ghanaian cinema Fofo Gavua is set for its UK premiere this May. Garnering critical acclaim on the festival circuit and selected for Lights, Camera, Africa Film Festival and Hip Hop Film Festival West Africa, this gripping drama follows the exploits of a plucky, down-on-his luck teenager trying to make his way in the world.

Giving a rare insight into the life of Ghana's youth, we meet the endearing Twitter-celebrity Lucky, played with aplomb by rising star Kumi Obuoabisa (Sophie), who lands a date with Nutifafa (Jane Efya Awindor), the most popular girl on social media. Desperate to move on from his ex Pamela (Buki Akiwumi - Sophie) and make a quick buck to impress his dream woman, he teams up with longtime friend Wadaada (Solomon Fixon-Owoo Jr - Eden, Aloevera), and their plan is to sell a macbook to fraudsters. But things don't go the way they expect and the ensuing turn of events will keep you on the edge of your seat. Just when Lucky thinks nothing else can go wrong, it manages to...

Funny, tragic, devastatingly sad, with comedic characters loosely based on those from the creator's own life, Lucky is a harsh yet hilarious glimpse into the unpredictable life of a Ghanaian boy who finds increasingly inventive ways to solve the problems that the world throws at him. Will he finally get lucky?

'A gripping tragi-comedy that will leave you at the edge of your seat from start to finish'
