Huck's Best of the Week

Huck's Best of the Week

Sheffield Doc/Fest, Secret Cinema, All This Mayhem and Copson — Documentary, drama and DIY: this week we're all about cinema.

This week we’ve got a very cinematic Best of the Week for you. We headed up to Sheffield Doc/Fest to catch some incredible new documentaries, got inspired by Secret Cinema presents Back to the Future to think about the movies we would love to live inside, interviewed the director of Aussie skate doc All This Mayhem and made our own little Show Your Work short film with our friends at Copson.

Sheffield Doc/Fest

Huck headed up to the city of steel to catch the UK’s biggest documentary film festival. Check out part 1 of our festival roundup, including Return to Homs and Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story and we’ve also got an interview with the director of the amazing We Are Many that got standing ovations at both its first two sold out screenings then had a third screening added my popular demand. Keep checking back to the Huck site this week for an interview with the director of Shield and Spear and round ups of films about resistance and Africa.

Secret Cinema presents Back to the Future

Immersive cinema experts Secret Cinema announced a second round of tickets for Back to the Future after their initial release sold out in just four hours. Huck got thinking about the cult films we wish Secret Cinema would bring to life, including Walter Hill’s iconic NY gang drama The Warriors. Read the full piece to check out where else in the movie world we dream we could be.

All This Mayhem

This doc from Eddie Martin tells the story of two Aussie brothers trying to break the American skate world, and while it does a great job of capturing a particular period of skating history, it’s far more compelling as a dramatic tale of youth and brotherhood.

Show Your Work: Copson

Coconut water plays an important role for Georgina Townsin in helping her to channel the tropical vibes as she hand crafts a Honolulu Haze cushion for Copson. In this Show Your Work video, the London-based leisurewear brand granted Huck the opportunity to check out their creative process.
