Sony Announces Every PS4 Game For 2015

One of the most frequent complaints that has been lobbed against the PlayStation 4 in the past year or so has been the lack of games, especially exclusives.

Manchester Kurdish Film Festival, Manchester

Being a stateless region in the most volatile part of the Middle East, it's no surprise that the cinema of Kurdistan is full of conflicts and borders. The Quarter Of Scarecrows is an allegorical take on the Iran-Iraq war, while Son Of Babylon and Mando both use quests for missing family members to survey the current, devastated landscape. Kick Off, meanwhile, is based on real events at a refugee camp in a Kirkuk stadium where a man attempts to settle Kurdish-Iraqi differences through the international medium of football.

Facing cold war danger with a very English combination of wit, judo, kinky boots and superior umbrella manufacture, The Avengers led where many spy thrillers still follow – not least James Bond, which first came to the screen a year later, and poached a few Avengers stars in its time.
