This film, which is the sequel to the acclaimed 'From Bedrooms to Billions' (2014) looks at the creation of the now legendary Commodore Amiga a remarkable and very personal tale told by the surviving team members themselves. The film then goes onto explore how once released in 1985 the Commodore Amiga helped evolve the video games industry as a whole new set of games and experiences were possible thanks to its incredible custom hardware. Many of these styles of games, music and demos as well as development techniques honed during the Amiga era are still present in the video games industry we know today. (duration 2:31)

This year's feature is Lady Terminator (aka Pembalasan ratu pantai selatan), directed by H. Tjut Djalil (Indonesia, 1989, 82 min.). A female anthropology student is possessed by the spirit of an ancient queen. Ill-famed for her cruelty and monstrous libido, the demon enters the city to wreak havoc and destruction. Not quite a terminator, and far from a lady. This film is nothing but a failed attempt at a Western blockbuster with a hint of Asian folklore. Crammed with black magic, nudity, heaps of action and scenes you have seen somewhere before, it is a B movie classic you simply need to know.
