New releases this week include Matteo Garrone’s terrific portrait of a criminal dogsbody, Dogman; Touch Me Not, the controversial winner of the Golden Bear at Berlinale; Science Fair, a sharp, refreshing documentary charting the fortunes of high-school students; and Sink, following the tough tale of an unemployed dad living on the brink of survival.

One off screenings this week include music doc The Go-Betweens: Right Here on Monday; Hungarian comedy-drama My Twentieth Century on Wednesday and Anim18‘s The 7th Voyage of Sinbad on Thursday.
