This festival brings 25 films from 19 countries to cinemas across London.

Highlights include documentary White Light/Black Rain which interviews 14 survivors of the US’s 1945 attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Also look out for Sari Soldiers, which documents the lives of six Nepalese women.

The central character, Devi, witnessed the torture and murder of her niece at the hands of the Royal Nepalese Army. When she spoke out, the army kidnapped her daughter.

The film tells the story of her fight for justice.
