Day 11 of the 54th BFI London Film Festival saw Colin Firth's organisation Brightwide hold their second annual event at BFI Southbank. The featured film was Christy Turlington Burns' documentary No Woman No Cry which investigates maternal mortality and pregnancy care worldwide. Darren Aronofsky gave an American Express Screen Talk, discussing a life in pictures. At the filmmaker tea we caught up with a number of international directors, including Jamie Thraves (Treacle Jr) and Kim Longinotto (Pink Saris). In the west end we spoke to Danny O'Connor, whose film Upside Down investigates the legendary Creation Records. Finally Ken Loach presented Route Irish, a compelling thriller which looks at the human cost of privatising the war in Iraq.
