DocHouse continue to bring factual features to cinemas across London with the UK premiere at Hammersmith's Riverside Studios on Thursday October 25 of Let Fury Have The Hour, plus a satellite q&a with its maker Antonino D'Ambrosio. A hit at Tribeca Film Festival earlier in the year, his directorial debut is a mixed media collage of protest-minded artists, playwrights, poets and musicians from the 1980s to the present, including such luminaries as Chuck D, Eve Ensler, Shepard Fairey, Suheir Hammad, Hari Kunzru, Ian MacKaye and Elizabeth Streb.

This month's programme begins tonight at Rich Mix with a cast and crew screening of Matthew Kay and Jasper Kain's Over The Wall, which follows a group of university footballers during the Arab Spring, as they attempt to become the first British sports team to play in Palestine. Thursday October 18's outing at the Kensal Rise Lexi offers a different perspective on the Middle East. Going Up The Stairs portrays self-taught 50-year-old Iranian painter Akram's struggle to exhibit her work in Paris, against the wishes of a conservative husband. Winner of the Sheffield Doc/Fest Award for Best Female Director, Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami's film will be shown alongside Sadaf Foroughi's acclaimed 2007 short Féminin, Masculin, about the first female bus driver in Tehran.
