3pm - BRONX OBAMA
When Louis Ortiz shaved off his goatee one day in 2008, his life changed forever. He looked in the mirror and he didn't see himself - a middle-aged, unemployed Puerto Rican father from the Bronx. He saw the face of change, of hope... of money. Bronx Obama tells the strange and improbable tale of a Barack Obama impersonator who tries to cash in on the "look of a lifetime" and chases a fevered American dream. Featuring a hard-driving manager who pushes Louis to "become Obama", a seasoned "Bill Clinton" who dispenses advice, and a hard-working "Mitt Romney" who bets it all on his newfound career, filmmaker Ryan Murdock captures unexpectedly hilarious moments along this Twilight-Zone-esque campaign trail while delving deep into the question of what it means to be someone you're not.

5:15pm - THE TRIP TO ITALY
In 2010 film, The Trip, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embarked on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, the pair are reunited for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. They enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri -- the camera captures the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centred on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career.
