Celluloid Streams: What to watch this week

We're back again with another selection of films which are available to stream now.

Wadjda (PG) - MUBI

Wadjda was a lot of firsts. It was Haifaa al-Mansour's feature debut, the first film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature-length movie made by a Saudi director. It's also utterly wonderful. Watch trailer.

Outside In (12) - Netflix

With the sad news of the passing of Lynn Shelton this month, American independent cinema lost one of its more interesting voices. Outside In is a fine example of how she painted realistic, yet flawed, characters. Watch trailer.

Tangerine (15) - All4

Sean Baker's (The Florida Project) feature debut is a fresh and vibrant story of a transgender sex worker who discovers her boyfriend and pimp has been cheating on her. He was ahead of his times, shooting the whole film using iPhones. Watch trailer.

Predestination (15) - Prime

Michael and Peter Spierig's time travelling sci-fi is a 'prime' example of a 'straight to video' film which is actually pretty great. Follow Ethan Hawke on his time-hopping adventures. Watch trailer.

Shirkers (12) - Netflix

Every so often a documentary comes along which will blow your mind. Sandi Tan's journey into the unknown is an intriguing, bizarre, unsettling and bewildering story. Watch trailer.

Roll Red Roll (15) - iPlayer

Over the past decade or two there have been a number of stories uncovering the toxic masculinity that is rife on American college campuses. Nancy Schwartzman documentary illuminates the horrible truth. Watch trailer.
