Home 
Refuge, shelter or prison? Sharmila Tagore narrates the story of home on-screen in the great films of Edith Carlmar, Lynne Ramsay, Mai Zetterling, Liu JiayinForough Farrokhzad, Antonia Bird and others. 
 
Religion 
Narrator Sharmila Tagore takes us on a global tour of great films about religion. We start in the US in the 1910s, go to Sri Lanka in the 70s, and dip into the work of Lucrecia Martel, Jessica Hausner and Marjane Satrapi. 
 
Work 
Work seems too unglamorous for cinema, but as narrator Jane Fonda tells us, in films like American Honey, the silent Russian masterpiece Women of Ryazan, Venezuela’s Araya, Patty Jenkins’ Monster and Mary Harron’s American Psycho, some of the most engrossing scenes depict work.
