The Wave (2008) Dir Dennis Gansel
Based on a real life experiment which took place in California in 1967. A German high school teacher's experiment to teach his students about autocracy, by turning the class into a self-ruling social unit, spins horribly out of control as the students get sucked into creating a regime that eerily resembles Germany's Nazi past.

Roma (2018) Alfonso Cuarón
In Mexico City's upscale Colonia Roma district, a quiet but swift change is on its way. Pivoting around Dr Antonio's middle-class bourgeoisie family, the lives of two women - the devoted live-in maid and housekeeper of Mixteco heritage, Cleo, and her academic employer, Sofia - become inextricably intertwined, as a seemingly ordinary trip to Quebec paves the way for a bitter heartbreak. Over a span of one long year - from the quadrennial 1970s World Cup to the blood-drenched Corpus Christi Massacre - the unforeseen and sometimes unbearable complications of love; a new life and death, and an almost stubborn will to find good in evil, pepper Sofia and Cleo's daily routines.

From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices.
